I am a renaissance woman. I have trained in many areas but what is most important is the experience that I have gained and how I can use this to inspire people to be happier about themselves and to create the life that they want.
I woke up from the hum drum of my own life in 1998 through a life crisis that, although traumatic, enabled me to look at things differently and perhaps come off the beaten path. I had a well paid very successful job as a corporate lawyer and I branched out to follow my dreams of writing, doing art and making a difference in people's lives. This dream led me to leave my country and move from France to England, leave family and husband behind (I kept the children) and reinvent myself.
I have written two books:
the Journey of the slim soul (read more about it here): which promotes holistic slimming by tending the needs of the mind, the body, the emotions and the soul. This book draws upon my personal experience as someone who has had to battle her weight for a long time but also issues of emotional eating and body image. It also draws upon my experience as a hypnotherapist, a reiki master, an intuitive and an emotional freedom technique practitioner combined with an interest in anything holistic and complementary therapies. You can purchase the Journey of the Slim Soul here (best site if you live outside the UK) or on my wesbite: www.journeyoftheslimsoul.com
- the First eight weeks of the slim soul (which is available as part of a package called a passport) which offers a detailed programme which has almost nothing to do with food and which gently helps people change their habits not only of eating but also of thinking and brings them in the right space to start their own journeys. On our passports, you can chose between different options: bronze for people who have enough "discipline" and are happy to get on the plan and follow it on their own, silver for people who need three hours individual coaching sessions and Gold for those who feel they need a little bit more encouragement and holding of hands. You can purchase your passport here.
- I am in the process of writing my third book of this serie called "Diary of a slimmer" where I share my journey of getting back into shape after having my fourth child. This has been such an amazing journey for me since 2009 and I have deepened even further the concepts of the journey of the slim soul which I share as I explore them first hand from January 2012 until now.
We have launched successfully the Slim Soul Academy in 2011: a new training centre for people who want to help other people slim through my method. It is open to anyone who wants to help others slim and who wants to practice a compassionate sustainable long term method to help others slim. No previous qualification required. The training combines some of the best tools from hypnotherapy, counselling, emotional freedom technique, reiki and more. The next training will be offered on Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th June 2012. It offers a great opportunity for family friendly work. To find out more about the course, click here. You can download our information pack here. To sign up, click here.
My next book projects are:
an autobiography of my life as a mother which is called: "From corporate lawyer to spiritual lawyer, a mother's path to enlightenment" which is well advanced and will be in print later on this year (I finished the first draft in March 2011 and will be working on it again in the months to come - the book cover was commissioned with a very talented local artist called John Ogden), and
a book which will take the slim soul concepts and adapt them for children to build the next generation of confident, healthy eaters and active children.
So watch this space.
The best to you and your happiness,
Anges de Lumiere
