Hello! I’m Enda
Internationally Certified Parental Burnout Practitioner and Holistic Life Coach.
It’s an honour to connect with you.
I’m an Internationally Certified Parental Burnout Practitioner and Holistic Life Coach.
My mission is to uplift, support and empower parents of adolescents across the globe to reclaim their lives.
I want to help you live beyond stifling social expectations, step out of the box that idealises parenting, connect with your authentic being and build nurturing, strong bonds with your adolescents.
Let’s get real and let’s get raw
I’m here to remind you that being imperfect is perfectly human.
In the very essence of your being, you know you are meant for more – but you aren’t sure how to make it happen. That’s where I step in! I am here to lovingly remind you that life is for living. It’s your time
- Stop feeling stressed, overwhelmed, physically depleted and emotionally exhausted
- Stop seeking external validation and worrying about what others think
- Stop putting yourself last
- Stop the social comparison game
- Stop the cycle of conflict with your adolescents
You don’t have to live like this any longer. I see you, and I feel your struggle.
As someone who has experienced severe Burnout while parenting, I know first-hand what you are going through.
I know all too well how easy it is to lose your identity when your life revolves around your children, family and work. When this happens, you lack balance and alignment – which leads to Burnout.
But I’m here to tell you something… I know what it takes for an adolescent to thrive: YOU!
When you thrive, your children flourish.
I’ve supported and uplifted thousands of parents to build strong, nurturing and authentic relationships with their adolescents for over twenty years.
Together, we have turned feelings of stress and tension into moments of connection and joy. I want that for you, too.
How did I get here?…
I grew into adulthood, ticking off the boxes of accomplishment that I was made to believe while growing up would bring me happiness, fulfilment, inner peace and success.
External validation was my default setting – I entrusted my happiness to others instead of myself.
The truth was that although I strive for perfection, I was missing the mark. As a parent, a wife and an overworked professional, I was constantly overwhelmed, stressed and wiped out physically and emotionally.
I had no idea what was happening to me, but I knew that something needed to change.
I felt the kind of exhaustion that runs deep into your soul. I felt stuck and I wondered how long I could go on like this. I knew in my heart that this was survival, not living.
I woke up with blurry vision one morning, and I could hardly see. Panic attacks started to kick in. The journey of endless medical tests began.
The diagnosis was Uveitis caused by an auto immune condition which resulted in me losing 80% of the vision in my left eye.
Until this point, I had not known that chronic stress and depression could impact my gut health and lead to severe inflammation in my body. I didn’t know that my feelings and the symptoms I was experiencing were linked to Burnout. These diagnoses were an alarm bell going off that I had things in my life that I needed to start facing.
So what did I do?
I started to change how I show up for myself in life.
I made myself a priority.
With the support of my mentor, naturopath and some health professionals, I committed to living a natural and holistic lifestyle.
I finally accepted that the band-aid solution that I was using was not working – so I went deep and committed to healing my wounds. I slowed down. I gave myself permission to rest. I listened to my body, tamed my inner critic, calmed my ego, and aligned with my higher self.
I recreated healthy boundaries and surrounded myself only with people who made me feel good about just being me. I learned to communicate my needs healthily, I welcomed all my emotions and allowed myself to feel them fully.
I connected with my authentic being and purpose. I stopped needing to be the “perfect mum,” and lo and behold – a strong, nurturing and authentic bond developed between my teenage son and myself.
I am now experiencing the absolute joy of being a parent to an adolescent. I approach life with a positive and resilient mindset that is the bedrock of me thriving as an ambitious woman, mother, wife and professional who loves herself fiercely and knows her worth.
I found the missing piece… My True Self.
“You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.” – Wayne Dyer
You, too, deserve to feel like this!
Are you ready to embark on a transformational journey?
If you’re willing to trust me, I can take you on a journey of meaningful, authentic, and profound transformation.
If you’re willing to commit to positive action and take responsibility for where you are and what you do in life, I will be there to give you the tools to support and elevate yourself.
If you’re ready to embrace parenting and turn its raw, messy challenges into opportunities, I will be your anchor and support.
While you leverage the discomfort, dissatisfaction, and resistance that arises to get to know yourself and your children better, I will be there to lovingly remind you that change is painful – but nothing is as painful as staying stuck.
You will discover that your imperfections are your superpowers.
You will build healthy boundaries and find a strong sense of self.
You will create the change you want to see.
YOU will guide yourself back home, to you.
