If you want to learn more about Irene, you’re in the right place.
I am a Wife, Mother, Grandmother, cancer survivor and business owner.
I am also a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, a Mentor, an International Transpersonal Coach, Supervisor and Group Facilitator, plus Author of “The Visible Woman – More Lust, Less Must” and “I Don’t Care – The Art of Divine Indifference”.
I am passionate about drawing out women’s strengths and re-connecting them to their inner confidence.
I want you to know that it’s fine to be comfortable with your ‘uncomfortability’, and be successful in your own way without having to wear a mask of pretence. I want you to be yourself, by not allowing your self-doubt to be in charge.
Ageism is rife in our society and particularly so for women. Once over the age of 50, we are portrayed as too old, past it, invisible and sometimes even replaceable, both at home and in the workplace. Fuelled by the media our society is obsessed with youth. We only have to look at the ‘beauty’ treatments that attempt to halt the ageing process to know this. The message being don’t be yourself, don’t be real; be this ideal woman or else you’ll be invisible. But this view ignores all the positive things about ageing. With age comes the ability to view life in an easier way. It brings wisdom, experience, life skills and maturity. It was through my sense of anger and frustration at this waste of wisdom and life experience that older women possess that inspired me to write The Visible Woman. We shouldn’t accept this feeling of being put out to pasture as though we no longer have anything to offer society. It’s time to rise up to the challenge and the myth of ageing.
“I don’t care!” Have you ever wanted to shout that out loud? Do you find yourself doing things just to please other people, or because you think you ought to be doing it, even if you don’t want to? Then this book is for you. Without realising it, like many people around the world, you have inadvertently created a self-imposed cage around yourself, with bars made from invisible barriers like, “I can’t…”, “I’m too busy…”, “I’m not good enough…” and you crouch inside like a caged tiger, getting angrier and more frustrated each day. However, life need not be like this because you can give yourself permission to step over the threshold, into a new, more exciting and creative existence. You just have to say, “I don’t care!” and relinquish those old, limiting stories about yourself. This book will guide that personal transformation, enabling the longed for journey to re-connect with the ‘you who has always been there’ – Yourself.
