Hi, I’m Martina!
I used to be ‘the nice girl’. Of course I had other qualities but it was my ‘niceness’ that I valued. I did what I thought others wanted of me, and I always anticipated their needs…and met them. I practically spent all my time and energy on helping and supporting others feel good – leaving my own needs at the door. I was selfless. And I thought this was a good thing.
I was an over-carer.
I thought being nice and pleasing others made me a good person. And, yes, I was – and still am – a good person, but I was exhausted. Emotionally drained. Frustrated. Unfulfilled. Felt inadequate. Questioned my identity. Lacked direction and purpose. Found myself in relationships that were not very supportive. And I didn’t have much confidence. My confidence came from being needed by others – and not from an intrinsic source. And I cared way too much about what others thought – especially of me.
Have you felt like this? Or maybe you’re feeling like this now?
Once I realised that I had lost all connection with myself and who I truly was because I had spent so much of my life focusing on others, I knew enough was enough. I knew there was more to life than relying on external validation to feel good about who I was. I knew there was much more to me than I was letting the world see. To feel like I had a purpose. To feel safe to be me. To feel excited about life again.
But I was so scared, so worried about what other people thought of me. I struggled with the fear of being judged. The fear of rejection. The fear of letting others down. And this is what stopped me from living the life I knew I wanted to have.
I spent years overcoming the fear of truly being myself and expressing my needs and going after what I wanted. Through years of learning, studying, practice, discovery, experience and expanding, I found the ingredients to finally feel empowered and confident in who I was so that I could meet my own needs in life and live my life without needing a permission slip to do it.
I can help you overcome your people pleasing patterns, your compassionate patterns of over-caring, your deep hidden feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness, your emotional overwhelm in a way that won’t take you a decade, like it did for me! It’s time for you to finally step into who you really are, feeling fulfilled, feeling brave and giving yourself the love that you have been pouring into everyone else for so long. And it’s time to do it without feeling guilty or selfish.
It’s not about building self-confidence. It’s about healing, self-discovery, self-acceptance, breaking old patterns, rewiring the subconscious mind to put you front and centre of YOUR life. I changed my relationship with myself and the world so that I could start creating the life and experiences I truly wanted.
It’s my mission in life to support as many women to go from feeling trapped in old patterns of over-caring and putting their needs last – feeling unworthy, stuck, frustrated, emotionally overwhelmed, energetically drained, and living in a self-abandonment cycle – to living a life that is fulfilling, filled with joy, purpose, inner peace but most of all, freedom. Freedom to be who they are and to create a life they love!
