Emily’s passions are animals, her dogs and her husband (not necessarily in that order!).
Emily had a savage inner critic and was a people pleaser.
Her biggest challenge lay in her self-esteem and self-sabotaging.
She’s been working with me over the last 6 months to unravel 57 years of beating herself up and telling herself she’s not good enough.
Watch her video to hear what she has to say about her journey so far …
I came to Mimi after reading about her business on Facebook, and at the time I was feeling very low and had just extracted myself from a very unhealthy relationship that left me full of negativity. I felt like I needed to change and address some core wounds and limiting beliefs and fears. I wanted to transform and become more assertive, and confident in my life.
I had previously been seeing counsellors and art therapists to help me with this but found that it was not moving very fast and in the meantime, I was spending money to basically talk and not get to any action that would help with my goals, despite my counsellor wanting to help me with this.
Mimi’s dedication to making sure I was receiving her feedback and attention to what needed to shift in me was 100% from the start, and as I have issues with motivation, I was probably quite frustrating to get through to at first, but nevertheless, Mimi persevered, determined to help me move past the resistance I was displaying initially.
Eventually, things did start to flow and I found each day new thoughts and beliefs were stirring up and making themselves known to me…and I was able to receive feedback from the daily awareness sheets that not only made sense but also helped me see reality past my doubts.
Considering what state I was in when I started working with Mimi, the results were that I had a couple of instances where I was faced with situations where I needed to assert boundaries and let someone know that their behaviour was not ok, and I was able to do so with a clear voice and without hesitation, and without allowing the person to dominate me.
I am still working with the tools Mimi has shared with me, and I’m so grateful to have these now in my arsenal to play with and work towards a greater vision for myself and my life, thanks to Mimi taking time to support me with feedback that was firmly rested in the reality of cause and effect’, giving me the choice at all times whether to take responsibility or fall back into victimhood, and I feel like I did meet that challenge mostly.
Mimi has a passion for working to empower women to reach their full potential and was vigilant to encourage me towards overcoming my resistance and old patterns of behaviour, with patience and belief in me and the tools she brought to offer.
It is a daily unfolding that I am looking forward to seeing the end results.
I needed help to change how I saw life when I started to notice in my conversations with people that I’d say something about what was going on with me and they’d always respond optimistically. I realised I saw life with the glass half empty.
Over the years I have been to the occasional counselling session to deal with traumatic experiences, but I always felt there must be a way to change the way I viewed life. When I found Mimi I realised there was a way I could learn to change how I approached life. The techniques she has shown me are simple yet transformational.
The ongoing support from Mimi helped to ensure I applied the strategies to address everyday challenges as well as look at the positive things that happened in my life each day and be grateful for them.
I saw changes quickly – becoming more aware of the negativity I had was just the start. Breathing techniques also helped me calm down in challenging times very early on in the coaching relationship.
I found my experience with Mimi to be very in-depth, sometimes confronting, sometimes quite challenging when it came to looking within myself. But it was all worth it to feel the liberation I have now that I look at life with the glass half full.
Ben’s story is unusual … Not because he asked to work with me even though he knew I specialised in helping women … but because he is one part of a courageous and amazing family unit. If his surname seems familiar, it’s because you may have seen his wife’s name, Damaris Hawley, who was also a client of mine.
Damaris approached me first to help her with her anxiety and debilitating panic attacks. At the end of our time together, she had no more panic attacks and had her anxiety under control. She’s still going strong over 2 years later … (click here to watch her video).
Ben was blown away by the transformation he saw in his wife.
So he approached me and we began working together.
His primary challenge was around low confidence particularly at work, managing his anxiety and stress levels better both at work and at home, his inability to say no, and issues around willpower, setting goals and following them through to completion.
Ben and his wife, Damaris, are two courageous and exceptional individuals, and together an amazing and strong couple.
They are a beautiful example of how when a couple are committed to growing individually and working through their issues, they become collectively stronger together and able to deal with whatever comes their way.

I was at a stage in my life where I felt I needed to do everything on my own. I wasn’t keen on asking for help as I always believed that help is a sign of weakness. When Mimi came along, it was a relief for me to know that someone has my back. A relief to have someone there who is not in my every day life or business but to remain objective and to challenge me on what I was thinking, what I was saying … Working with Mimi, she has always been extremely professional, yet very loving, caring, compassionate. I was really confused and didn’t know how to stand up for myself. I wasn’t aware of what I can do. I’m now at a stage where I can fully embrace what I can do, what I have achieved and the person who I am.
I started seeing Mimi back in April as I needed help with my anxiety and panic attacks, which have been holding me back. In that time Mimi worked on my ‘root cause’ for my anxiety and gave me strategies to deal with it and everyday life. I have now finished my coaching journey and I have come out the other side and now I feel like I have control not the anxiety having control over me. I have not had any panic attacks and I am feeling more confident and positive. It was one of the best decision’s I have ever made to see have Mimi and have her coach me. Not only has it helped me so much, I really enjoyed every session with her. Thank you for everything. You have changed my life, and also changed the way I look at things now and for that I am forever grateful.
In the short time I have been seeing Mimi and completing the tasks she has set me, my confidence has improved immensely. I am much happier and have started doing and considering doing things I had always thought I was not capable of doing. I know I have further to go on my journey and with the help from Mimi I can only see success and techniques to use in situations I am uncomfortable and uncertain in. My experience with Mimi has been nothing but positive and beneficial. If unsure if Mimi can help you I suggest you contact her and ask her yourself. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone who needs some guidance or direction.
After going through a really tough time in my personal life, I knew I wanted help. My negative emotions and anxiety were taking over my life and taking the joy out of it. I wanted to take control of my life and change my thought patterns, which can be achieved through NLP and other coaching strategies. After seeing Mimi there has been an instant positive change in my thought patterns and I am learning to thrive no matter what life throws at me. Mimi is incredibly kind, supportive and understanding. We have a continuing relationship and I’m still on my journey but am already impressed with my growth and courage and this is due to Mimi.
Since working with Mimi, I have been able much better able to deal with the challenges of every-day life. I have been able to identify the underlying beliefs that have been holding me back and to put strategies into place in order to challenge those beliefs. I feel much more in control of my future and I look forward to identifying my new career path.
My coaching experience with Mimi was positive, motivating and empowering. Mimi really helped me think through things and to see things from different aspects. She was firm as needed but also very sensitive and helpful. It wasn’t an easy process for me but Mimi made it better with her patience, guidance and support. The strategies I learnt from Mimi are very powerful which made me a much happier person now.
Working with Mimi was such fun!! Her innate ability to put me at ease as well as her skills and thoughtful and caring manner contributed to me developing more confidence and find a clearer focus and goal for my life. The gentle way she worked with me to release some unpleasant emotions from the past, means I face a more carefree future than previously. Thank you so much, Mimi.
Mimi is knowledgeable, worldly and incredibly genuine … She possesses the ability to sort through the fog and get to the root of a person’s goal. She also has an uncommon wisdom which enables her to be a steady hand in any situation. You get the feeling Mimi sees every new client as a chance to do something meaningful in the world. I wouldn’t just say Mimi is good at her job. I would say she is born to do it.
