When I met Niamh, I thought I'd got to the end of the line. I'd tried everything that modern life dictates - therapists, counselors, medication, to name just three - but nothing truly worked. That is, nothing truly convinced me that I could be the person I wanted to be.
Luckily, Niamh saw through all this. Her trick is quite simple - to not let you trick yourself. In the gentlest way possible, she refuses to let you believe that you are unable to be the person you want to be, to do what you want to do, to let all your talent fully express itself. Before Niamh and I met, I never would have believed that I could earn a living as a freelancer, with a view to allowing myself the permission - and time - to write fiction, something that I have always wanted, but never dared to believe that I could do. Now I not only earn my living that way, but write every day too. That feeling of liberation is beyond compare!
Niamh practices what she preaches. Not for her the high-and-mighty (old-fashioned) teacherly approach of preaching to her 'pupils'. No, she practices gratitude too (you should see her notebooks), and compassion and self-belief. She does not judge herself and she will not judge you either. She will, however, prod you in the right direction - sometimes remorselessly - and won't be taken in by your old self that doesn't want to change. You see, from the moment you meet her, Niamh will believe in you and what you want your life to become - it's up to you to decide when to join her on that journey and believe in yourself too.
