Hi! I'm Andrea.


Hi I’m Andrea Bird.

This is me after going for a run by the sea. A time when I am at my most happy, apart from spending time with my family.

I’ve always loved to spend time by the sea. Exercise, not so much. And a family of my own for a long time seemed like a dream that was out of reach, maybe even impossible.

If you’re feeling that stress, anxiety, overwhelm are starting to affect your way of being, I’m here to give you hope. That you CAN change your stress levels and create lasting positive change to your well-being, your life and those around you.

I started to experience anxiety in my late teens as I felt the pressure to do well from myself, my (well-meaning) parents and my peers.

I didn’t know that I suffered from anxiety, I only knew what I felt in my body: the racing heart, shallow breathing, churning stomach and a head that alternated between total brain freeze and a monkey mind chatter analysing the potential disasters that awaited me if I took that exam, made the presentation or stood out in any way.

It only took me 25 years to conquer my exam anxiety – but it was so worth it! 

I managed to cover up my anxiety and stress in my 20s, ignoring the fact that my physical and emotional illness were trying to get my attention.  Until after 3 years, my longed-for pregnancy felt further and further out of reach.

“Difficulties come when you don’t pay attention to life’s whisper. Life always whispers to you first, but if you ignore the whisper, sooner or later you’ll get a scream” Oprah Winfrey. 

Now I am so grateful for my house coming crashing down. It made me listen and take time to breathe, reflect, search for a way out of the spiral. And there started an incredible journey of discovery, huge learning and creating positive, long-lasting changes to my own and my family’s health, well-being and life.  

The techniques I have learned have helped me have not just one, but 2 gorgeous boys and change my life and my career in so many ways. From feeling constantly anxious and stressed, I discovered a calmer way to be, a mindset which helped me to:

  • negotiate parenthood with increasing calm
  • resolve my exam anxiety (which for me was my fear of the unexpected), so I could qualify in my new chosen career. 
  • tap into my creative writing skills (by transforming my belief that I would never be good at creative writing) to write a website. 
  • gain the confidence to set up my business and do the job I could never have dreamed of doing. 
  • host group workshops in person and online, empowering others who feel like I used to, to create positive and lasting change to their own well-being and those around them.

What could you achieve if you let go of some beliefs and fears that have been holding you back?

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us, and make us kinder. You always have the choice.”

Dalai Lama

When you feel stressed you often don’t realise you do have a choice.

From exam anxiety to a fear of walking out of the front door, emotional and physical pressure to fear of failure, I have helped hundreds of clients re-discover their freedom to choose. To transform fears and anxiety that they formed throughout childhood from (mostly well-intentioned) caregivers and life experiences. 

I’m here to help you move forward and step into your most amazing potential self.

‘F.E.A.R has two meanings: Forget Everything and Run or Face Everything and Rise. The choice is yours.’ Marianne Williamson.

Fast forward a few decades from when I was first pushed out of my comfort zone, I’m learning to embrace stepping – sometimes even taking a leap of faith and jumping – out of my comfort zone. Ok, I still get fear coming up, but then I am only human!.

My latest adventure was interviewing and being interviewed in the Tapping in Education World Summit 2019. I could not have taken this huge leap without the  life-changing resilience techniques I have learned over the years and the support of my incredible community of friends.

It’s that support that I bring to my expanding group stress-busting and resilience programmes & One to One sessions.

I’m now a Reiki master, Advanced EFT Practitioner, Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner and Matrix Birth Reimprinting Practitioner and use these ground-breaking advances in neuroscience and psychology, because of their fast, effective and long-lasting benefits and effects, during one to one sessions and workshops.

I’m here to give you hope; that it’s never too early or too late to transform your well-being, your childhood experiences and beliefs, to create lasting positive change to your life and those around you.

If you’re ready to take that first step, I’ll support you in letting go of the emotional baggage that’s holding you back and lead you towards your amazing Future Self. Ready?
