“Self-Care isn’t a chore or simply a nice to do. Self-care is a necessity as we navigate the challenges we face in life”

Permission To Thrive...

Creating a transformational Self-Care journey together for a fulfilling healthy life...

Are you a woman in the mid phase of life looking for a supportive community that encourages prioritising self-care? 
Then look no further! Join our community and connect with other like-minded brilliant women for self-care journey's, where you master the art of reconnecting with yourself for the good of all.

Here's what you get when you join Permission To Thrive:
  • A topical monthly guidebook to encourage exploration & implementation of bitesize self-care activities as well as an opportunity for self-reflection.
  • Monthly challenges to encourage you to go further into self-care practices, building consistency, testing & trialling and feeding back on the experience.
  • Monthly led sessions with your host or a guest practitioner on a key element of self-care (all recorded for ease of access)
  • Practical guidance, uplifting words of wisdom and live interactions with your host, YvonneB
  • The opportunity to build connections with other brilliant women, using the community chats and messaging options so you are never alone – we need each other!
  • The space to share and uncover the challenges faced with prioritising self-care, breaking unhealthy patterns that are a disservice to your needs, in a safe solution focused environment.
  • An opt-in option to our growth circle to get extra support along the way.

 Is this journey for you? Here are five questions to help you gain more clarity:
  • Do you struggle to put your needs at the top of your priorities?
  • How often do you stop and check in with yourself?
  • When your exhausted and being asked/expected to do more (be that work or the needs at home – children or partner) what drops off your to do list?
  • Who supports you when you are feeling stressed out, fed up and ready to throw in the towel?
  • When was the last time you checked in with yourself and asked, 'How am I?'

As you look at your answers, do they signal any of the following:

  • Life’ is sucking away your time and energy, leaving a feeling of zero time for yourself, a lack of fulfillment and simply stuck on the hamster wheel.
  • You feel disconnected from your own needs you simply don’t give them any consideration and can’t see a way to change the situation.
  • You are being consumed by the needs of others, making you feel frustrated, resentful (even if you keep it in check), unseen & unheard.
  • You feel isolated and are sick and tired of going it alone. You know you need the support of others.
  • Your relationship with your body is one that excludes checking in on your emotions, thoughts, or physical feelings.
Maybe you have got it all together, in which case, let’s celebrate that! 
You might have some valuable insights to share with others to help them on their self-care journey and become a wonderful mentor, raving fan or encourager to others.
If you want to get right with your health, begin to get your needs met and take responsibility for making that happen, with the support of a community, then you are in the right place!
We have created a self-care journey that will help you develop a plan to:
  • Come back to yourself – in a world that is constantly pulling your attention outwards, in this community you will be encouraged and moved to go in, to reconnect with you and your power.
  • Slow down and listen to your needs – half the time you don’t know what you need because you are being pulled by everyone else’s. By tuning in, you will begin to feel and hear the messages your body is sending you, begin to interpret those messages and meet your needs whether you have 5 minutes or 5 hours!
  • Utiilise resources that guide and support you on your self-care journey – giving space to test drive and embed different approaches, whilst identifying which ones work best for you, creating a personalised self-care plan.
  • Connection with like-minded women who want to reconnect with their self-worth and understand how being aligned with good health impacts other areas of their lives in a powerful way.
And it's cost effective! 
For the price of 2 large ‘branded’ coffees a week, we will support you on your quest to self-responsibility, giving yourself permission to thrive, building a deeper connection with yourself that makes self-care a natural state of being, all with the support of other women wanting a similar outcome.

Meet Your Host, YvonneB!

Yvonne is an award winning Self-Care Coach (2023) & Women’s Health Advocate (2017), awarded as an Exceptional Woman of Excellence by WEF G100 Global Network (2023) in her post as the UK Chair of their Healthcare & Wellness Wing, and is known as a catalyst for change, reconnecting women to their innate power through self-care. 

In a world that is constantly demanding us to do more and to look outwards, Yvonne focuses on raising women’s self-awareness, and confidence, bringing their life into alignment with their core values whilst taking necessary actions to develop healthy habits that enhance their wellbeing & life, by going inwards.
Although she had prior experience in coaching & training in the fitness & corporate world, following her redundancy Yvonne trained as a life coach and NLP Practitioner with a mission to help women build their confidence and unlock their potential. What she came to realise over a number of years was the potency of blending these coaching skills with her 39+ years of experience in the health & fitness industry, supporting and encouraging women in their mid-life to regain control of their wellbeing through the prioritisation of self-care. 
As a woman in her 50's, a mother and grandmother she understands how easy it is to allow one’s own health to go on the back burner in the pursuit of meeting everyone else’s needs and expectations yet also recognises this approach often leads to resentment, high stress, depression, and burnout.
As a qualified Personal Trainer, Nordic Walking Instructor, Nutrition Coach, Physical Intelligence Coach & Nature Facilitator, and TetraMap Facilitator, she is passionate about maintaining mind, body & soul connection for meaningful wellness, Yvonne blends her many skills to help women rediscover and connect with their powerful self, putting their health first so that they have the energy and potential to take on the world! 
Permission To Thrive was founded by Yvonne. In her own words:

"This is about taking a journey together to develop healthy mindsets, create value-focused habits, and absorb personal growth strategies that enable us to squeeze more fun, energy & joy out of life whilst fulfilling the commitments that matter to us; guilt-free, doubt-free, and without judgment.
I look forward to welcoming you into our beautiful community of brilliant women who are realising that by putting themselves first they are not being selfish. Their self-care benefits everyone in their life, their work and their joy!"
With Love & Deep Appreciation
