The Smash the Pumpkin Project

  • Are you excited to wake up each morning and get on with your day?
  • How would you rate your self-confidence and your self-esteem?
  • Do you dream of a different life but perhaps you don’t know where to begin?
  • Do you feel stuck in a rut but are powerless to make any changes?
  • Has life taken you along a different path to the one that you had planned out when you were younger?
  • Are you happy?

We all have dreams but life has a nasty habit of getting in the way.

I’m here to show you that your life CAN sparkle and you CAN live your dreams. Some dreams are always going to be difficult to achieve, but sometimes you just need to scale them back a little and life can become exciting and fun again.  Often it’s simply a case of changing your mindset and understanding why you continue to allow negative thoughts to dominate your life.

I’m here to show you how you can change your mindset and follow your passions.

These days, modern living often takes its toll. We get onto the career treadmill or we launch into unhealthy relationships. We need to pay our way, pay our debts or pay back a duty of care to others. We tend to bite our tongues and we put up or we shut up.

You may be dealing with the fallout from domestic abuse, a divorce or bullying.  You might simply be bored in your current job or relationship.

Resentment, frustration and unhappiness can eat away at you manifesting itself in stress, depression, physical illness or lethargy to name just a few side effects. But it doesn’t have to be this way and I’m proof that you can turn yourself from a victim to a survivor.

I’m going to show you how you can put the sparkle back into your life.

Your dream won’t be the same as my dream but my formula is tried and tested (you can trial it for one month if you are unsure).  Continue reading for testimonials from people that I have supported.

I’ll show you how you can make small changes to your life. You’ll identify what it is that excites you and you’ll challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone.

What you’ll learn.

I’m going to teach you how to change your mindset and how to challenge yourself. The Smash the Pumpkin Project can help you to

  • Identify your passions and your dreams and make them a part of your life
  • Discover an inner strength and find out what you are capable of
  • Learn how to stand up for yourself and grow your self-confidence
  • Show you how to deal with uncomfortable situations
  • Build your self-esteem and take control of your life
  • Meet new people and get involved with different experiences
  • Find out how other people have followed their dreams
  • Get the secrets to a life that sparkles
  • Discover how meeting strangers can change your outlook on life
  • Get stories, tips and ideas to broaden your horizons
  • Receive information on how to incorporate the project into your lifestyle

Once you commit to the Smash the Pumpkin Project you’ll be sent an email (at least) every two weeks. These emails will contain details of a specific activity or a challenge.

Don’t worry – I’m not going to suggest that you throw yourself out of an aeroplane (unless you have a burning desire to try it) but you will need to push yourself a little bit. The challenges are all loosely themed around the medium of travel; after all, it was travelling solo that helped me to believe in myself again.

But the beauty of the Smash the Pumpkin Project is that you don’t need to quit your job or buy a backpack. The challenges are designed to be done from the comfort of your own home town and you can fit them in during an evening or over a weekend. Your boundaries will gradually expand as you travel further afield, both physically and mentally.

What do people say about the project?

Lisa said….Before my session with Jane, I felt stuck and really confused as to which direction to take my life. I wasn’t feeling happy and didn’t know how to fix it myself. During my session Jane helped me talk it through. She made me write a list of different options and roads I could take and we eliminated what wasn’t making me happy. As we talked though each option, my mind was becoming less tangled and clearer. I wasn’t happy living my life the way that I was and something had to change. Jane made me see a different path and how to live my life with more clarity and purpose. Thank you Jane.

Faye said ….’This course has been very encouraging in helping to gain confidence. Jane’s advice is so helpful and is so good to see her progression and personal experiences, showing  that anything is possible. I would definitely recommend this course and hope that many others can gain from this course’.

Penny said ….’I felt more in control of my life (my body, my time).  I felt empowered to do it (…a fitness challenge) again as my fears were unfounded’.

Debbie said ….’Very thought provoking. I like that you are thrown in without having the chance to think’.

….I waited eagerly for my next email.  There is no doubt in my mind that this course changed my life.

Remember you can contact me with any questions and find out how the project can benefit you before you commit or you can trial the first month and get a taster of things to come.

A little bit about my background & why I can position myself as an expert.

My motto is… ‘if life knocks you down, stand up and kick it straight back’….although it wasn’t always like this for me.

Several years ago I wasn’t in a good place but now I am (almost) living my dream.

In the past, I nearly always deferred to my partner and as I became more reliant on him I began to lose my self confidence. And then, so slowly that I hardly noticed it, I began to lose my own identity as I changed my personality in order to keep everybody happy.  Years of treading on eggshells began to take their toll, both mentally and physically. I couldn’t even begin to see a way that I could change the status quo and I certainly didn’t think that I would ever be brave enough to leave my emotionally abusive marriage.

But although it came at a huge price I did break free, however I believe that my manipulative ex-husband influenced our children to the point where they stopped contact with me.

I had a breakdown and I was at rock bottom but one day I simply decided that enough was enough and if I was to survive I had to learn to value myself and to feel valued again.

I had already received counselling and I had read plenty of self-help books but I needed to learn how to believe in myself and my own capabilities again.

One evening I sat down with a big piece of paper and I made a list. From that list sprang two more lists and the seed of an idea about how I might be able to build up my shattered self confidence.

I threw myself into my new lifestyle project, and after a whole series of challenges and pushing myself out of my comfort zone my work is now serving others who find themselves in similar situations or who simply want to see what else life has to offer.

And that is why I am so passionate about this project.

I am continuously learning and discovering new things about myself.  The challenges that I set myself and subsequently my solo travels taught me so much and opened my eyes: now I want to show you that you can change too – if you want to.

I am living my dream.

I will continue to study mindfulness, CBT and NLP on a deeper level.  I want to lock myself away on a silent retreat and learn better meditation techniques.  I want to tune in to my intuitions and learn how to listen to my spirit guides and to trust my instincts.  I want to serve you and to support more people like you.
