Hey, I’m Kirsty Dee and I started here as a blog actually, a place to share my wellness journey and it grew to become a place where I would help women empower themselves, to lead their lives and feel good about themselves. I started offering coaching, soul-nourishing audios and programmes for women as I noticed this pattern, so many people do not feel good enough, worthy or that they do enough. They doubt themselves to the point it stops them from going for the things they want or even believing it’s possible for them. I became a coach to help people to feel enough, to see what they can’t see yet. To get women Choosing To Rise to all that they are. Living in their full potential without striving or burning out. Doing more won’t necessarily bring better results or any results for that matter.
As I started busting through my own hangups, insecurities, never feeling good enough patterns, striving, trying to keep everyone happy – I would share what I’d learnt by offering free workshops in the Choose To Rise Facebook group. After 15 years in the wellness industry and years of homing in on my skills, creating audios, doing little home events for anyone that would listen, studying, being on this path myself I had built up a foundation of knowledge and skills that I had this intuitive knowing that I just had to become a coach.
I realised I could offer something so incredibly needed with integrity, love and realness in a world where we are taught to not love ourselves and just be a good girl I.E do as your damn well told.
The kind of coaching that heals and transforms lives and so it was, I become a coach for women, holding space for you so that you can feel safe, supported and safe as you grow into the woman that feels truly empowered. A woman that lives in a way that feels so good. Someone that feels happy from within. A woman that has the confidence to go for what she wants.
My passion comes because my life wasn’t fulfiling and I never felt good because I didn’t love myself, in fact, I didn’t like myself. I was sexually abused as a child, I continued to allow shitty behaviour from men until I was twenty and some of those memories are so painful, yet I learnt how to rise from it all. I’ve overcome depression, ignorance when called an attention seeker after hospitalising myself, a doctor that didn’t wanna know when I shared my abuse, betrayal and toxic friendships. Your life matters. Whatever has happened in the past matters, but it doesn’t define you.
I rose above a painful past and now live a really soulful fulfilled life. Our past shapes us, but it doesn’t need to control us. We can be happy and we can always Choose To Rise.
More about me? I’m married to Tony although I call him Pony. We have been married since 2007 and he’s my best friend, cliche I know, but true. We have two kids one we nickname Pie and one called Clark because Pony loves Superman. I have a diploma in holistic therapies and REIKI Level 1, I’m a trained fitness instructor and the retired creator of Dorset Lifestyle Bloggers. Although I started off writing a blog, I find literacy really hard. Obstacles don’t stop me though. I’m ACTUALLY WRITING MY 1ST frigging BOOK which will be out 2020.
