Building resilience has been a topic on almost everyone’s lips over the past 12 months. How can we do it? Is someone born resilient or is it something you can learn along the way.

My guest this week on the show is the wonderful Sharon Fitzmaurice, Wellness Coach, Author and Therapist. 

So, just how many challenges can you overcome in your life?

As human beings we will all face challenges in our lives to a varying degree which is why building our resilience and realising how strong we are will stand to us in the long run.

Sharon Fitzmaurice has overcome immense challenges from experiencing childhood sexual abuse to losing her precious baby daughter Annie.

At one point she contemplated taking her own life ,however, Sharon discovered & developed the tools she needed to help herself and others. 

In this episode we discussed:

  • The stories that define us in life

  • Why it’s important to think about all the things you’ve overcome (especially when it comes to building resilience)

  • Saying yes and figuring it out as you go
