Hi, I’m Sarah Lucia – Accredited NLP Master Practitioner, NLP Mindset Life Coach, Motivational Speaker, Educator, Author and Blogger.
Over the past decade, I have worked as an Educator within five UK schools, Wellbeing Champion, NLP Life Coach, Support Group Leader for those with chronic illnesses and a Blogger. I have coached adults and children in improving their mental and physical wellbeing, effective communication skills, confidence and self-esteem and positivity in overcoming obstacles in their lives. I provide my clients with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to take purposeful steps to becoming the person THEY want to be, live the life THEY want to live and to realign their lives with THEIR values and desires.
Although I live in London, the beautiful capital of England, I have helped people from all over the UK to become empowered and inspired in their own lives.
My Early Years
Although I had an amazing childhood, I still walked down some wrong roads in life – which led to me leaving home aged 16. After living in hostels and temporary accommodation, I moved across England to go to University – where my journey in helping people to live a more fulfilled life began. I worked as a Music Youth Worker with young people from Detention Centres and I worked as a Radio Presenter for a Community Radio Station. Aged 22, I returned to London to start my career as an educator and I quickly became the Head of Subject at a Secondary School and Sixth Form College.
My Calling To Be A Coach
Within three months of the birth of my daughter in 2017, she was diagnosed with deafness, I had to have surgery to remove Stage 0 Cervical Cancer cells and I was then diagnosed with Heart Failure and Dilated Cardiomyopathy (Google told me I had a 50% chance of dying within one year!)
Just over one week later…my partner left us!
After a few months of procrastinating and being miserable, I felt I was “losing” myself. I was panicking about my future, everything was on my shoulders and I just felt like…well, not me!
I knew I had get myself back in gear and get positive again! There was no way I was going to let all these negative events change and define me and my daughters future. If anything, I knew I had to aim even higher – achieve even more, because I had to be a positive role-model to my daughter.
So, I Decided to ‘Life It’!
I took purposeful steps to regain my strength as a woman and as a mother and became empowered in every way I could think possible! The famous ‘Bucket List’ was my first step to regaining control of my life and realigning my future with my dreams and desires.
To start living my best life, I took my health and wellbeing seriously for a change and began to get fit again. I went to Cardiac Rehab twice a week (special gym sessions to strengthen my heart), Pilates, Tai Chi and swimming. I practiced mindfulness and meditation, changed my diet and quit smoking.
I became a Wellbeing Champion and started running my blog (Life It Or Not) and various support groups for Cardiomyopathy patients and single parents. One of the most important changes I made though, was going through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). I learned how to reprogram my own mind and started to realign my life with my values and beliefs.
I took the steps to become a certified Life Coach and NLP Master Practitioner and in 2018 I left my career and went travelling with my (then 1-year-old) daughter to 7 countries and 10 cities within 10 months. On our return to the UK , I found I was a Top 10 Best Selling Author in the Amazon ‘Online Services’ category.
Since then, I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Neuropathy and POTS. My whole point in life is to live a life that I WANT – not to let my obstacles, chronic illnesses and life situations define me.
