Who I Am
My Story. Otherwise known as … Why?
I have spent the majority of my life asking one question – Why?
Why am I the way that I am? Why are you the way that you are? Why is the world the way it is? Why are the pyramids in Egypt? Lucky for me “Why?” pretty much covers everything and this world is full of answers . . . which tend to lead to more questions . . . so I don’t think I will ever run out of things to explore.
My curiosity has led me to work and travel across many different countries in various settings ranging from managing a bank all the way to First Mate on a sailboat leading snorkel tours (and for the record – I can carve a mean pineapple boat). The common thread has always been inspiring and supporting people. So it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that even from a young age I knew I wanted to be a therapist and a coach.
I get to empower people to uncover their own personal “Why?” and help them create their own unique impact. Essentially I change the world by helping others change theirs. It’s the best job in the world. I am passionate about providing the space, tools and insight for people to discover their own personal truths and become leaders in their own lives.
If you notice that you, like me, want to change the world for the better and want to understand your “Why?”, I invite you to call me. I look forward to working just as hard for you, as you are for yourself. And remember – this isn’t a moment in your life . . . this moment is your life.
How do you want to be living it?
Who I Am
One of my favourite exercises from Brené Brown’s Rising Strong™ curriculum is called the “I Am” exercise. It is the culmination of your story and a declaration of who you are. Below is the story of who I am.
I am Constance, my parents’ only daughter. Raised part pragmatic prairie-girl, part wonder-filled west coast wanderer.
I am the descendent of ranchers and farmers who taught me to honour the land, animals and communities that sustain us. That being interconnected is the only way to truly thrive.
I am a blend of science and spirit, as the child whose favourite toy was a microscope but chased fairies, grew into the woman who believes in scientific research but also the power of healing crystals.
I am a world traveller and lover of oceans, mountains, and airplanes, and live every moment knowing we, and the world, are both expansive and boundless, but also small and fragile.
I am a seeker of knowledge, experience and connection, and remind myself daily that we are all made of stardust.
I am one who seeks to understand but knows sometimes there are no answers other than the ones we make for ourselves.
I am a boundary pusher against boxes that keep people small, and amplifier for those whose voices need to be heard.
I am a seer of patterns in speech, love, and action. I am a believer in magic, synchronicity and the things we can’t touch or measure.
I am a champion for human potential, while a realist that some people need to be loved from a distance.
I am one who grew strong through falling apart – who found myself while running away – who saw the light by stepping into the dark.
I am Constance. I am HERE.
This is my story. I’d love to hear yours. I invite you to contact me to see how we can work together soon.
