My name is Fliss Goldsmith, and I am an Emotional Wellbeing and Empowerment Coach. A background as a qualified Life Coach and Inclusion Specialist created the perfect partnership of experience for me to be able to create impact in the Emotional Wellbeing space. Not only have I done the work – I have done the WORK!
After struggles with anxiety and depression, body dysmorphia and an eating disorder in my twenties I was not dissimilar to many of my peers. The next decade brought joy when I became a mother, but the responsibility only heightened my unsupported mental health struggles. My physical health then hit the rocks when I was diagnosed with a primary and several autoimmune conditions – and I spiralled downhill requiring several operations. Finally, the unprocessed grief of losing my father before I was 37, in a sudden and shocking way meant I found myself at life-level Basement, in hospital on a feeding tube, barely able to walk.
This was when I realised, I had to decide if I wanted to survive or thrive. Between then and now I have done the consistent, intensive, internal work on my own mental and emotional health and the results are beyond life changing. When I tell you I wake up each day, able to appreciate something no matter how awful the cards I am dealt are – it is 100% true. Now I have curated my craft to be able to fully support others to design and live a life of self-awareness, self-trust, and self-celebration. Working with others to empower them to design their future and then to have the tools to make it a reality is more than a blessing.
