Helen Ferguson Talk: Rising Beyond Trauma Through Self Compassion & Self Acceptance

What if you are already enough?

In this inspiring and empowering talk, Helen will be sharing with you that it’s all inside you already, as she takes you on an extraordinary experience of connecting deeply with the beautiful woman you are and giving her a little more self-compassion and self-acceptance. She shows you how to rise beyond the trauma you have experienced and BE the woman no longer defined by the “what if’s” of her past. 

“What if I’m not good enough?”

“What if I didn’t have to pretend I wasn’t overwhelmed, so people don’t think I’m a failure?”

“What if I didn’t have to fit in and could embrace my faults?”

“What if I didn’t feel like I was ‘faking it’ in my business?”

“What if I get found out?”

What if you didn’t feel that everything you’ve created, everything you’ve built in your life could come crashing down at any moment? 

You will all have your own ‘what if’s’…and you’ve been carrying them with you since childhood, they’ve glued themselves to you through past traumas and lived experiences, taking hold of your emotions, your body and your mind. 

Helen shows you through her own transformation that it is possible to free the debilitating  “what if’s”  and turn them into empowering “I am’s”, as she’s done so not just herself, but thousands of women across the world in the last 24 years. Leaving them feeling a little more “I am good enough, I am my voice, I am not my past” but more importantly “I am my future.”

So that more women, like you, can live freely, feel alive and flourish in every part of their life. 

It’s time to be the woman who is unapologetically, beautifully herself.

TALK DESCRIPTION (Version 1 Long form):

What If?

What if you didn’t feel as though you’re not good enough?

What if you didn’t feel overwhelmed?

What if you didn’t feel ashamed?

What if you didn’t have to pretend you’re not overwhelmed just in case everyone thinks you’re a failure?

What if you didn’t feel as though you have to hide your pain but acknowledge you’ve been through so much in your life?

What if you didn’t criticise & judge yourself so much?

What if you didn’t feel as though you’re ‘faking it’ in your business & that someone will eventually find out you’re not as good as you say you are?

What if you didn’t feel that everything you’ve created in your life could come crashing down at any moment?

You will have your ‘what if’s’. The one’s you’ve been carrying around since childhood, the one’s that have glued themselves to you when the trauma you experienced in any part of your life took hold of your emotions, your body, your mind. The one’s you think you can’t shake off.

You are not alone. For far too many years Helen had these too, but she became free. She unlocked the innate part of her that gained power over those debilitating ‘what if’s’ and turned them into empowering ‘I am’, not only for herself but for over a thousand women in the last 24 years.

I am good enough

I am not overwhelmed

I am not a failure

I am not what has happened to me.

I am visible

I am my voice

I am kindness

I am loving of myself

I am woman

I am confident, courageous, compassionate, accepting of EVERY part of me.

I am not my past.

I am my future.

In her inspirational and empowering talk Helen is sharing with you the extraordinary experience and skill of connecting deeply with the beautiful woman you are, though self compassion & self acceptance to rise above and beyond the trauma you have experienced and BE the women NOT defined by her past.


The woman who is free

The woman who is alive and flourishing in every part of her life.

The woman who is unapologetically beautifully herself.

This talk is for EVERY woman who has ever felt that her voice hasn’t mattered, that her voice has been lost through the trauma she has experienced, who has ever felt as though SHE doesn’t matter.

Helen is about to empower you to not only find your voice, but to raise it, to hear yourself & connect you with the power you have within you to find your voice, to know your purpose and love yourself for who you are.
