Hello, beautiful soul!
I am Paige, and it’s so lovely to have you in this corner of mine!
I am on a mission to help support you to live your absolute best life!
I work with and support motivated spirits just like yours that seek to live a life that is fulfilling. I believe that my superpower is seeing and bringing out the magic within you, helping you to find balance in your life and the courage to take the steps forward to make all the magic happen. It is my mission to illuminate and shine a spotlight on that pathway forward for you, to help you dig deep and cultivate the self-love and self-worth that you want so badly… As a coach, I guide you to do the inner work within yourself so you can flourish in your life.
So… How did I get to where I am today?
I was born and bred in Singapore, and made the move to Melbourne to commence my university studies back in 2008. I grew up in an environment that was very academic-focused, and was fed the belief that in order to be successful, you had to excel academically and you had to hustle hard… like really really hard to get to yourself into a good career.
No balance in life. No flow whatsoever.
Burnt out in my teaching job after five years?…. That was me.
Questioning what I was doing with my life?… That was me.
Desiring change and a deeper purpose?… That was also me!
I was also the biggest people pleaser – constantly putting others’ needs and wants before mine.
I got to the point in my career where I felt stressed and overwhelmed and wasn’t being as productive as I could be. My to-do list was overflowing and seemed to be never-ending, adding to the feeling of never ending pressure and failure to do the best work that I could. I was constantly jumping from task to task, and getting bogged down with the ever-increasing administrative jobs that the teaching industry brings, without making the impact I knew I could. On top of that, I wasn’t taking any time out for myself and was pushing my body to its limits because I didn’t have time.
However, I realised that hustling hard and neglecting myself was not effective in the long run. So I started asking myself ‘what do I need to do differently?’ and that’s when I started to show up differently.
The positive psychology field was something that always interested me and intrigued me in my teaching role, and I started to look into positive psychology strategies both for myself and for my students. Student wellbeing became a huge passion of mine as I was given the opportunity to coordinate entire year levels of students, and this was definitely where I knew I thrived – being able to play a much more important role in a young person’s life not just within the classroom, but also outside the four walls!
I am a firm believer in “thriving minds lead thriving lives”, and try to live by this every single day.
I started investing in a whole heap of personal development books (think Brene Brown, Mark Manson, Angela Duckworth and many more….), and started my own personal development journey. I definitely see myself as a bit of a personal development junkie right now, but hey, it really is a lifelong journey in this space.
It was through this journey of self discovery that I came across the Beautiful You Coaching Academy, and instantly I knew that I had found where I needed to be. I am in the midst of training with Beautiful You and am aiming to be a certified Beautiful You Life Coach in the very near future. Surrounding myself with like-minded souls, exploring wellness and self love, and genuinely feeling connected to a purpose, has given me the space to grow even more within myself.
Fast forward to today, I’m living a more mindful and balanced life – all while teaching full time. I’m much happier than I was, much healthier than I was (both physically and mentally), and I know that I can help YOU be the same.
Are you ready to ditch burnout and start living your life in abundance and flow?
Putting yourself first and following your purpose is far from selfish, lovely. It is the start of your self love and acknowledging your worth. You are already courageous, coming up to this point.
As a Life and Mindset coach, I now help teachers understand and shift their mindset to avoid burnout, all while achieving balance and learning how to truly love themselves so they can achieve their goals, reach their full potential and live a life truly from the heart in order to flourish and thrive. My strengths as a coach are to work with you to identify where things are already going well for you, and also to help identify those areas where you may need a bit more help so that they are working in tandem and you can make positive steps to get to where you want to be.
