“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”
I have spent a lifetime in and around the world of health & fitness in my career, as a competitor, in my business and as a pastime. What those 37+ years have shown me is when I have invested time into my personal wellbeing I have thrived. When I have dropped the baton due to stress, time challenges, lack of prioritising, I have struggled physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually. And all of those experiences have taught me not to take my health for granted, to be pro-active in my wellbeing so that I can live a thriving life for the rest of my life. Are You Ready To Do The Same?
Yvonne is a self-care coach and award-winning women’s health advocate, acting as a catalyst of change, reconnecting women to their innate power through self-care. In a world that is constantly demanding us to do more, Yvonne focuses on raising women’s self-awareness, confidence and bringing their life into alignment with their core values whilst taking necessary actions to develop healthy habits that enhance their wellbeing & life.
Although she had prior experience of 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 37 years’ 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 backburner in the pursuit of meeting everyone else’s needs and expectations but also recognises this martyr type approach often leads to resentment, high stress, depression and burnout.
As a qualified Personal Trainer, Nordic Walking Instructor, Nutrition Coach, Physical Intelligence Coach (in training!) & Nature Facilitator, 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 Bignall, and in her own words:
"It is my belief that as empowered women we know the importance of nourishing & nurturing our beautiful unique selves and through this act we are able to resource others with love, skills and knowledge. We just don't prioritise it.
But now we have the opportunity to… together!"
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 judgement.
Because You're Worth It! Following a lifetime of giving of yourself to the benefit of everyone else, it is now your time to have some focused time with other like-minded women, shooting the breeze about what matters to us midlife, fueling your wellbeing and having some fun!
"Your support means everything because I believe together is how we best bring about the changes we want for ourselves and the world around us. I'm only one woman, together, we are an AWESOME community!"
Love, YvonneB xx
