I have always seen my life’s journey as one big adventure. I love the word “Thrive” because it suggests a full life that is alive, healthy, growing, flowering and bearing fruit. That’s why I love Thoreu’s quote about living deliberately and deeply and sucking out all the marrow of life. This has definitely been my mantra.
My personal journey hasn’t always been easy, with childhood trauma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and severe endometriosis issues being some of my biggest challenges. However in choosing to live a thriving life I have overcome these and other challenges. It is the lessons I have learned from the darker times in my life that have most definitely been my biggest teachers. What I have learned has become the inspiration behind why I want to help others to be overcomers rather than victims in what life throws at them.
In my 25 years as a chiropractor it amazes me how people age so differently. One of the main lessons I’ve learnt is that lifestyle is the most important predictor of good health. Those who show an attitude of gratitude, keep active, eat well and have a strong family or support network seem to stay younger and healthier for longer.
Through Made to Thrive I’m really looking forward to equipping and empowering others to find balance in their lifestyle and achieve their health and wellness goals.
“Working with Jenny through Made to Thrive was timely for me. The focus was always positive and individualised to meet my specific goals and needs. I learned positive self-talk strategies and how to stage achievable goals. Discussions with Jenny enabled me to pinpoint pressure points and priorities in the areas where I desired to see change. While we are all works in progress, I now have a vision for my health, home and spiritual life that I was able to crystallise after working through the Made to Thrive Program. I am now maintaining habits that have had a significant impact...”Karen Vasilev
“I approached Jenny and Tim late last year about working with me to lose weight. Anyone who knows me could be forgiven for thinking I haven’t made much progress, but they would be wrong. The weight still needs to disappear, but the real progress so far has manifested in some of the other areas explored with the Made to Thrive program. Jenny met with me weekly to discuss what I wanted out of life, where I thought I was with my life right now and what steps I could take to travel from one to the other.”Cassandra McKay (1)
“Together we have traversed the emotional upheaval caused by my mother’s passing. The truth is that my simplistic desire to lose weight brought to light a number of areas in my life that need dealing with if I am to enjoy the lifestyle I ultimately desire. Thanks to Jenny and Tim and Made to Thrive, I now believe it is within my reach if I am prepared to persevere step by step.”CASSANDRA MCKAY (2)
“I recently revisited my Life Plan. Wow! I couldn’t believe that I had actually achieved some of the goals I had identified. A new career, better connections with some good friends and cutting some of the crap out of my life that I’ve spent years trying to keep together that I really shouldn’t have worried about! Thank you Jenny and Tim for helping to make these positive changes happen”J Polkinghorne
