About Valerie

I was born in Athens, Greece and moved to Boston, Massachusetts when I was two years old with my mother and brother.  We lived in Boston for many years.  Things were not so easy growing up, we had faced quite a struggle as a family, so I decided it would have been best to move out as soon as I could; I was just 17 years old.  I have lived in various places within the US, including New Mexico, Rhode Island and Florida.  When I was 25 I decided that I was going to sell all of my belongings, quit my job in sales and move to Cyprus (where my mother had retired) to start my life over the way that I wanted to.  I was craving change.  Change came to me in small doses and life happened.  I decided that after living one year in Cyprus, I was going to challenge myself and move to a new country.  I finally moved to London 6 years ago to pursue a masters in psychology and once I got it, I felt I was finally getting to where I was meant to be.  I was not certain what that meant though.  Did I want to pursue psychology?  Become a psychologist? Maybe a psychiatrist?! No no... maybe a researcher!? Was I prepared to go further?  The truth is, I had no idea. I completed the masters and was left lurking in my own thoughts and drowning in them.  I couldn't figure what direction was I meant to take.  So I took the obvious next step; I took a job in asset management (yes, you did read that correctly). So there  I was trading, surrounded by people in suits discussing the markets, analysing numbers by the millions on elaborate spreadsheets. But what ever happened to the dream!? Where did my dream go?  The one where I wanted to help people, possibly in psychology or some other related aspect!

After some years spent working in asset management, I found myself constantly day dreaming about where I would rather be, and what I would rather be doing.  I saw these day dreams all the way through and they felt so real. I dreamt of becoming a successful life coach.

It took me years of discovering and reinventing myself to finally decide that I was simply going to follow my dreams and work towards making them a reality.  I did not have the easiest of childhood's, a lot was confusing and felt wrong.  I always felt that I wanted to do something different to what everyone else was doing, so I ended up going to university getting a job in finance and then going back for some more university.   We all embark on a life journey that is unique to us. We are born into different situations with various innate characteristics which mould us into the people we are today.  It is our job to stay true to what we really want in life...

I found myself constantly thinking about what 'purpose' meant in my life in particular, what my purpose is in this life.  I spent years wanting to nail the meaning of it as if it were something clearly definitive. It is nothing like that for me and I love the freedom of that thought.  Freedom of thought...maybe that is what 'purpose' means to me; allowing my mind to freely roam and understand life in whatever form it presents itself to me.  Ever-changing and evolving, creating new paths for me to walk down.
