I was diagnosed with mental health issues at 8 years old after my mother had a nervous breakdown. I spent 19 years battling depression, anxiety, stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder, suicidal thoughts, and borderline eating disorders. In addition to my mental health, I was bullied at school which drove me to draw inwards.
Throughout this time I took to the stage for escapism and release. I found myself in love with performing and later went onto have a professional career in theatre and film for many years.
Although I had confidence playing characters, I was avoiding playing myself and showing up as me in front of an audience was frightening. This was linked to my trauma of being bullied and my unhealed soul.
When I walked away from my career as an actress and singer, I surrendered and chose to commit to healing fully. I was then ready to fulfill my full potential and use my voice for a new purpose. I had a bigger calling and in order to live it, I had to free myself and my voice which is when my background in theatre came into play.
Now a Self Leadership and Expression Coach and Mentor, I help women heal and transform and own their voice to help others.
I am a certified practitioner in NLP, Mindfulness, Yoga, Yin, Meditation, Voice and Movement.
I work with the mental, spiritual, emotional, physical and vocal aspects of the human so that beyond healing and transformation women can own their truth and share it, helping others to heal and rise.
The work I have done with Alyssa has been transformational, it is a journey and I am still on board but it has been important for me to do the more intensive experiences of the euphoria programme.
I am a therapist so I believe fully in the verbal expression of emotion from past and present as a way of healing mental and physical ill health, however there were always times this wasn’t enough. For me, I to have done personal therapy but working in a stressful environment during lockdown led me into a full stress reaction both mentally and physically and it was moving my body in yoga and doing relaxation and meditation that helped me, firstly to cope with the current situation and then to become aware of what I was holding in my body by way of blocked emotion from the past.
I came to realise that all my chakras were misaligned due to issues I wasn’t addressing in most, if not all of my relationships and areas of life such as unhappiness in work and feeling overwhelmed with everything else, such as feeling I wasn’t giving enough to anyone else. Alyssa helped me to see I wasn’t giving enough to myself and that fundamentally that had to change before I could ever feel like I could be enough for anyone else. This helped me to see that it was because of never having been given enough space in my own childhood to express my emotions that I had internalised the belief that others should come first or were always the priority, leaving me feeling empty inside and lost.
Joining Alyssa helped me feel a sense of belonging to a group again and gave me a sense of being accepted by others and therefore acceptable. While the change had to come from within there is a power that comes from others believing in you and them saying ‘Charlotte you are enough’.
Alyssa has helped me to see that for the full processing of trauma to occur movement and body work are essential components of the overall recovery journey and this will help me now to guide others in the right direction when blocks arise in talking therapy. It has also helped me to see that in order to prevent a stress reaction from recurring, I have to do regular work on unblocking emotion, still trapped in my body from years of suppressing my emotions as a child and work on the free expression of emotion to prevent this build up from happening again.
This requires regular journaling, movement and meditation. Yoga is much more than flexibility and posture it is about mind and body moving out of stress, into a state where everything can be felt and therefore faced, without a fear of it being overwhelming.
It changes lives, so give yourself this chance, Alyssa is so compassionate and shows no judgement what so ever, but offers total acceptance of you for all that you are and this and her personality is what carries you through the pain you may feel and opens up the possibility of real change occurring from within you, at your inner most core.
So grateful for Alyssa's teachings. I have used her tips for every performance and without them, I don't know how I would have got through.
She gives so much useful and voice-changing advice than any other teacher I have had. You are awesome! Thank you!
I was immediately drawn to Alyssa’s positive aura and energy. Once I learned about Alyssa’s coaching, I knew this was what I needed. Ka-jing seemed to fit exactly what I needed being a new mum that was tired, depleted and in need of some help.
Alyssa helped me to recognise that I carried an immense about of guilt, shame and lower vibration emotions that were weighing me down and putting me in a state of suffering following the birth of my baby and being a new mum. She helped me to recognise the things that were not serving me e.g. language I was using, beating myself up or trying to me a perfectionist. She helped me learn to love my light and dark sides without judgement. After having just 1-2 sessions with Alyssa I felt immediate results it was almost a snowball effect of positive changes.
My relationships have improved, I’m enjoying more time with my daughter, I was having so much more gratitude for what I have, I feel more in control of my feelings and my sense of purpose and direction in life. I almost felt frustrated with myself that I had wasted so much of my life not enjoying life to its fullest, but grateful that Alyssa had helped me see things more clearly and lift me out of a dark place.
The program also helped me tap into my inner intuition and learning to trust my own decisions. I am feeling so much more confident in myself and being myself.
As a results of the program, I have since taken up a new job, studying towards a new course and I have found time to experience more fun and joy in life and especially enjoying being a new mum. I have also become more self-aware of my emotions and feelings so I can deal with crisis when it occurs.
A combination of Alyssa’s 1-2-1 coaching, her yoga sessions and meditation all helped to make this possible. I am so thankful to Alyssa for all her support!!
Alyssa has given me so many amazing tools and recommendations to work with which I could choose from to work for me. Alyssa is very practical and clearly knows her stuff in this field and I have learned so much from her. The visualisation tools particularly resonated with me and the work on letting go.
I really like that Alyssa always made me feel I could reach out to her if I needed and provided a safe environment for me to express myself.
If you can get any chance to work with Alyssa on one of her programs I would highly recommend as it is life changing! She has a very gentle, supportive and practical approach to her coaching styles and you get so much value from every encounter with her.
Alyssa is amazing and I really connected with her, she is such a beautiful soul! I couldn’t have wished for a better mentor. If anyone is debating whether they should go for the program, I would say GO FOR IT you won’t regret it and it will be the best investment in yourself. Alyssa is more than just a coach / mentor she is like family!
