ABOUT AMY JACOBSON

When I was 17, I really disappointed my parents. Actually, my dad was pissed.

Throughout my teenage years, the one thing I was certain of was that I would be the first person in my family to go to university. I’d always had a fascination with the mind. At that time specifically forensics, criminology and psychology but I found I was too emotionally attached. This wasn’t good. I didn’t know what else I wanted to do and it didn’t make logical sense to commit the time and money to uni, so instead I entered the workforce.

Enter my extremely disappointed/angry parents.

“This is a big mistake!”

“You are throwing your life away!”

“You are capable of so much!”

This became a major defining moment for me! At that moment, I decided to prove them wrong. I formed a common belief of what success looks like, an executive job title and a healthy pay packet. However, chasing this goal, I realised what I still lacked … purpose.

I accepted leadership roles in areas where I had no technical experience. My challenge was to solely to focus on the core leadership responsibilities lifting teams that were capable of so much more and to help them build their EI skills. Understanding what makes people tick, how different people respond in situations, and how to work with people in highly emotional states.

This was a gift that textbooks could never teach me.

Whilst physically being in a large corporation, I had come back to my core fascination of working within people’s minds. Attending conferences and workshops, researching and burying myself in the human mind, gaining qualifications, becoming a speaker and trainer, my purpose was now clear.

AND NOW, I’M FOCUSED ON

Helping people own their shit, take control and be unstoppable

Do you ever feel like when one part of your life goes smoothly, another part turns to shit? That was me.

I’d get my career going in the right direction, and then my relationship would take a downward turn.

I met the man of my dreams, yet my job became less and less satisfying, failing to challenge and stretch me as a person.

Throw in single parenting two energetic young boys where I was constantly second guessing myself and fighting to be financially independent after purchasing my first home on my own.

Do you ever feel like when one part of your life goes smoothly, another part turns to shit? That was me.

You could say that life wasn’t exactly ‘smooth sailing’.
The balance was never quite right and one thing that I was lacking was a mentor for support and to push me out of my comfort zone.

I almost let my ‘imposter syndrome’ get in the way of meeting Amy. We’d arranged to meet for a job interview, for a position as a marketing intern that she had advertised on LinkedIn.

On the morning of the interview, I checked out the other applicants’ responses in the comments of the ad and decided that the job wouldn’t be mine. I wasn’t qualified enough.
Thankfully, Amy saw something different in me and as we began to work together, I learnt that in order to gain control of my life, I had to own my shit and make things happen myself.

Coaching was an instinctive path to take. Throughout my life I have always been the person that friends spilled their guts to, sharing their lives, their fears, their shames, their dreams. 

After meeting Amy, I quickly learnt through my training with her that my tendency to be a ‘fixer’ wasn’t always the right approach. 

The past two years have been spent learning Amy’s methodology and absorbing myself in emotional intelligence, becoming a qualified NLP Practitioner and working closely with clients.

I’ve always loved helping people, and now, as a Coach, I am finally fulfilling a passion that I’ve held for as long as I can remember.
