“If you think you can, or you think you can’t….you’re right” Henry Ford

Do you feel like you’re always getting in your own way of your own success

Do you feel like your lack of confidence is holding you back?  


If so, The Smash Your Own Ceiling BootCamp is for you!!

Let me ask you a question – do you have big dreams that you can’t seem to shake off? That you know you’re capable of more, but you can’t seem to get there? That you’d like to Be more, Do more, and Have more,  but you always seem to hold yourself back?

Maybe you believe your own excuses. Things like ‘This isn’t the right time.’ ‘I don’t want to bother people’ ‘I’m not ready yet, ‘It’ll never happen for me.’

Maybe you have all the right intentions, but you find yourself getting really busy with other things, the quick things on your to do list, rather than working on that one big thing that will propel you forwards.

Maybe you start things and head in the right direction, and then instead of getting the job done and finished, you convince yourself that you need to start again, or do something completely different.

Or maybe you get hi-jacked by your inner critic?

Whatever it is for you, you’re not alone!!

I remember this being me too!

I vividly remember being sat at my desk, secretly knowing that I wanted to do more, and be more, and that I wasn’t living my own potential, but instead of ‘going for it’ I’d hold myself back and keep myself small. I was definitely guilty of getting in my own way. In fact for me it was all about excuses. An opportunity would come along and instead of jumping at it, I’d come up with excuses why I shouldn’t. ‘I’m not ready’ ‘What will people think?!’ Are all things that would whir around in my head!

But then, one day I realised that I was my own biggest block, and it was then that I made the decision to work on my mindset – and that’s exactly what I did!

Since then I’ve helped loads of people find or grow their confidence, get out of their own way, stop holding themselves back and go for the success that has always been just out of reach!

And I’d love to help you too!

Is this where you are right now?


  • You’re lacking in confidence and it’s stopping you from taking action
  • You keep getting in your own way, and holding yourself back
  • You have the perfect excuse for every good opportunity that comes along…Things like…“I don’t have the time” “I’m too old” “I don’t have enough experience” “I’ve not got the right qualifications” “I don’t really know how” “I don’t want to annoy anyone”
  • Your self talk is not your best cheerleader – “Why are you bothering?” “You’re not good enough” “You’ll fail anyway” “What will other people think?” are things that pop into your head whenever you want to try something new.
  • You’re secretly scared of success, of getting too busy and you’ll have to work harder, that you won’t have time for your family, or the freedom to do the things that you love.
  • You’d love to know how to improve your confidence and mindset so you can start going for what you want.

“I have had the benefit of working with Barbara over the last few years… She is engaging, supportive and definitely knows what she is talking about. I can highly recommend Barbara to anyone who needs support – she has a brilliant way of supporting you but challenging you at the same time to help you make the changes you need.” (Wendie)

I understand me a lot better and I’ve “found” my confidence again!  

Give it a try…trust in Barbara and the programme and this will change your life!”
