INTERVIEW WITH VERONICA WEEDON, HEALTH & RELATIONSHIP COACH

Interview with Veronica Weedon, Health & Relationship Coach

Q. It’s an honour to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today? 

I’m Veronica — my heart melts like butter every time I just look at my dog, and I’m obsessed with wellbeing, empowerment and alignment with ones truth. I grew up in a very traditional family. I was taught that grown ups always know best, that quitting is never an option, and that disobedience has consequences. My mother also suffered from a serious illness. So, from a very young age, I had a front row seat to what it means to lose your health — both physically and emotionally — and the effect that can have on you, as well as those close to you.

When I was young, being an athletic girl was considered very uncool. In fact, I was called butch; a beast; and a lot of other uninspiring things. I was just about as far from the popular and pretty girls as you could get. Couple that with the shame around sex that comes with a traditional family. The result was a deep seeded belief that I was not only undesirable, but unworthy.

And so, as a late bloomer, I endured sexual assault as well as a string of relationships that left me ruined — emotionally, mentally, physically, and some even financially — each one worse than the one before. The kicker for me came several years ago — a relationship so toxic it sent me to hospital many times over, left me depleted of all energy and hope, and brain fog so bad I could no longer focus or function properly. I felt weak and ashamed, and could not believe this was my life. But for the first time in my life, I quit. I got out. And quitting saved my life.

My journey back to true wellbeing and to finally being in a position to experience healthy, fulfilling and beautiful relationships, was long and brutal. I wish someone could have given me a roadmap, a heads up, and encouragement along the way. This would not have made the road less tough, but it would have saved me a lot of time, money, and made me feel less alone throughout the process.

That’s what led me to create my Make Your Body Your Boss program. It’s a roadmap. It’s a heads up. And I’m your cheerleader throughout it all. It’s about healing. It’s about re-aligning your life force energy. So that you too can begin attracting the kind of relationships you’ve always wanted.

Q. Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialise in and why should someone work with you? 

The goal of my work is to help move people towards healthier, happier relationships. For so many people, decisions are made based on subconscious fears — the fear of abandonment, the fear of being alone, the fear of rejection, the fear of not being enough. These fears are valid and real, but they hurt us instead of help us. They lead to destructive decisions like staying in an unhealthy romantic relationship, or in an unfulfilling job, or tethered to family or friends that tear us down instead of lift us up.

Through my work as an RTT Hypnotherapist, we tap into the subconscious in order to find the root cause of these fears and negative self beliefs, and in turn reform, elevate and transform them into beliefs that will serve you moving forward. This work is done in combination with my Make Your Body Your Boss program which draws on my work as an integrative Health Coach. The program is designed to reconnect you to your innate wisdom. It addresses health on an emotional, mental and physical level, because the three are inextricably linked. In order to have better relationships, we must be willing to let go of who we are in order to become who we want to be. I’ve spent the last five years evolving as a person, and my current life is a reflection of that.

I went from abusive, toxic and depleting relationships, being unhappy and hopeless, being constantly ill and suffering major physical setbacks, to being physically, mentally and emotionally strong and balanced, with relationships that enhance my life instead of draining the life out of me. So if you’re struggling to form healthy relationships, keep getting sick, and/or feel disappointed in life, then my program may just be for you.

Q. What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their lives?

Self awareness and self care first. The days in which society idolises sacrificial lamb behaviour must be over. Become clear on what success means to you — it’s different for everyone and there is no right or wrong. That sense of hiding. That fear of judgement. That fear of rejection you think about, that keeps you stuck in the shadow of others. Clarity is what resolves it. Clarity is what dissolves it. Because everything becomes so much easier when you don’t have to show up wearing a mask. And above all else, no matter what, know that YOU ARE ENOUGH.

Q. Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you? 

Success to me means freedom and peace. Freedom to live the way I choose and being at peace within myself. It’s when my reality catches up to my imagination. I’m all about self-evolution. Because none of us can change anybody else. But we can change ourselves. And that can change our life.

Q. What advice can you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs?

Make sure you have a support network. Entrepreneurship is exciting because, hopefully, you’re endeavouring to do something you love and that helps make people’s lives better. But it can be a lonely and often stressful journey. You go from doing one job to having to do ALL the jobs. You’re the CEO, CMO, CSO, CFO, COO — you get the picture. So unless you can afford to pay a network of people to do those things for you from the get go, be prepared to learn A LOT of new skills, some of which you will likely struggle with.

You will have up days, you will have down days, and that’s where the support network comes in. If you don’t already have it, find a group of other entrepreneurs with whom you can share your journey and support one another. We all need that.

Q. Who inspires you every day?

This may sound like a strange answer, but Boris, my dog 🙂 I have such deep respect and love for the animal world. Boris teaches/reminds/forces me every day to go outside, to exercise, to be fully present in the moment, to rest, to love, to play. His energy is a reflection of mine, so it’s like I permanently have a mirror held up in front of me. Sometimes that’s hard, but he makes me better. And that’s self-evolution. I truly believe that animals can teach us so much about ourselves and life. We just have to be mindful enough to listen, and open enough to learn.

Q. In terms of legacy, what is the mark you’d like to leave on the world?

I’d like people to remember me as someone who impacted their life for the better. I want the world to understand that the most important relationship we will ever have is the one we have with ourself. If more people focused on that, more people would heal generational and childhood trauma (which just about everybody has to varying degrees) and know they ARE ENOUGH. And if more people knew that, the world would be a much more peaceful place.

Q. What is one book you recommend, and why?

“You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. It’s all about the mind-body connection which I’m a firm believer in because I’ve lived it. I’ve had the book for years and still reference it all the time.

Q. Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more?
