Advocate for perinatal mental health & wellbeing, imperfection and feeling the feelings.
Cheerleader for Big Dreamers with a superpower in helping you live life to the beat of your own drum.

Hello Wild & Precious One!

Welcome to my corner of the internet, a space where I write about the imperfections and reflections of daily life.

Life as an unexpected mother, accidental blogger, fierce imperfection advocate, narrowboat dweller, partner to a South African bushman, fur mama to a Zulu dog, former teacher, big dreamer, avid plan hatcher, wine lover, constant talker (even through films) and less traditional adventurer.

I hope that by being here you are ready to live life to the beat of your own drum.

Ready to accept that you’re in this world to do big things. Ready to let go of the belief that life should be hard, that you need to hustle, to strategise and to be better.

It’s time to let your heart rule the show.

Your intuition is less than gently, nudging you to follow your heart but the noise and clutter of everything you should be, and do, is drowning it out.

You’re ready to break free of the belief that you need to develop yourself before taking action.

You’re ready to understand that you are, know and do enough

Just as you are right now

So, courageous soul, let’s adventure through this life together.

So, courageous soul, let’s adventure through this life together.

Deep inside me, there’s a drum beating.

It’s been a wild ride getting to this point, the point where I listen to the drumbeat, tune in to that and drown out the head chatter, the external noise, and my Inner Critic. A personal journey that bought me back to writing.

Along the way, I thought about what I wanted to spend the time that took me away from being a mum doing.

I thought about what I wanted my little girl to be proud of me for, what I wanted her to grow up knowing and how I could support that.

I want her to unequivocally know that she is enough, that she is good enough to take up space on this planet in whatever way she chooses.

And the only way I know she will truly feel and understand that, on a bigger scale than me telling her, is if this narrative that surrounds us shifts. A narrative that currently suggests there is such a thing as perfection, that we should all be striving for common goals, that there are markers to indicate whether you are good enough, that you should look, feel and act a certain way.

I want her to live life to the beat of her own drum without batting an eyelid at doing so.

So, here we are.

Not only am I writing to remind myself that I am enough, that my feelings and emotions are valid, that I do not need fixing. I’m writing to normalise imperfection, to drown out the Inner Critics, the head chatter and the constant noise, and to help create a shift away from the stories surrounding us right now.

And if this in turn helps you, or helps someone you know, then that makes my heart skip a beat.

 

But most of all, Tillie, this is for you.

It was meant to be so easy.

Instead, life has crept in and all those plans to live in the moment, meditate, journal, and reflect, have gone out the window. Again.

Before you know it another week of treading water has passed with no time for you.

You can’t remember who you are, what you want to spend time on or what is important to you to grow.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Join me for 90 minutes a week to make good on the promise you made to look after yourself.

Work With Me

Client Love

As someone who’s never followed society’s “rules” it was hard to find a coach who understood me and what I’m doing with my life. But Lottie gets it because she’s living the same less traditional path.
If you’re wanting to live outside the box and want someone who can help you live that life, I highly recommend seeing if Lottie is the right person to help guide you through it. I know she is for me!

~ Heidi.

I thought I had a pretty good handle on where I was in my business. After discussions, questionings and deliberation with Lottie, she came up with a new way of delivering what was needed. It felt much more natural and instinctual.
We got a plan of action sorted and began to work our way through. A new skill for me was writing a blog piece and it all just felt like too big a task, with a blank screen in front of me. Lottie told me how to approach it and how to get around the blank page and the fear of getting it right from the start.
During our time together, Lottie was my sounding board, my editor in chief, my friend and my confidant. I cannot tell you how influential our face to face collaboration was, what we achieved in working so closely together was astounding. Lottie has a knack for words, a knack for writing and a knack for pulling out what it is you actually want.
Lottie has a skill of helping you see things more clearly and to steer you into what feels right, not because you feel it should be done the same old way. She gives you permission to explore and follow the adventure and to work in ways that are fun and exciting.

~ Sam W.

I felt Lottie completely understood my situation and working through my intentions with her was extremely comfortable as she gently teased out all of the key areas of my personal and professional growth that I was feeling challenged by. I had previously had months of coaching, yet with Lottie, we drilled right down to the foundation of my ‘WHY’ and began to build some personal goals on that in such a short time.
It was like flicking a switch, with the biggest realisation being I didn’t have to have the same goals and compare myself to all other the other people leaping from their corporate careers and really could take a less traditional path that works for me. I now have so much more clarity.

~ Mandy M.
