Hello, I'm Heidi Marke.
Having been on my own journey of trying to create the successful life I dreamed of, but finding it impossible without sacrificing my health and relationships, I had to find a way that worked for me. And that's why I'm passionate about helping you to do the same.
Knowledge wasn't enough. I had a first-class honours degree in Psychology, a certificate in Positive Psychology...I even trained with a Zen Master and became a qualified Zen Yoga Teacher. But even this wasn't enough to stop me wrecking my health and damaging my relationships as I lost the career in education I had worked hard to create, was really good at and once loved.
What finally gave me the insight I needed was listening to my body. Once I stopped treating my body as an inconvenient way of transporting my mind around while I got all my exciting goals sorted out, things shifted powerfully for me. I learnt to love and respect my body and in doing so found it easy to regain and improve my health, mend and deepen my close relationships and find a way to do joyful, meaningful work without sacrificing my health or relationships again.
I set up my business to be kind to myself and it was really tough!
I thought that once I had control of my own hours I would be able to easily create a life that worked for me. Turned out I was wrong. I needed to examine the mistaken beliefs that got me to burnout - the belief that sacrificing my health and time with those I loved was necessary to have the kind of success I wanted at work. I needed to change the habits that had worked so well for me up until they no longer did - you know, the pushing against myself, forcing my mind to focus through overwhelm, ignoring the signals from my body, pushing down the tears and longing in my heart to find an easier way, a less harsh way to build a successful life.
I learned the hard way - but you don't have to.
My life now includes joyful work, vibrant health and awesome relationships.
Every day I help people like you - highly conscientious, well-educated, intelligent people who have worked hard to create a life they were promised would be worth the struggle and sacrifice - but who are struggling successfully, but finding it increasingly to hold together this life they have worked so hard for.
You don't have to struggle - helping you create a life that works for you, without compromising your work, health or relationships - that is my passion and joy. This is what I do.
