Joe Roe's Journey
I am Joe Roe and I am a partner, sister, daughter and Coach. I am an animal lover too. I am a Qualified Coach, achieving a Coaching Diploma and an NLP Practitioner. Both are Accredited by the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP), of which I am a Member of (MNCP). Being on my own Bipolar journey does not define me as a person. I have had 2 serious Manic Bipolar Episodes. I view this as a gift for my joyful future. I have the credibility of being coached myself as part of my Mental Wellness to remain balanced and grounded, whilst fulfilling my goals and aspirations in life. I intuitively know this is my true natural path of purpose for me, to serve as a Mental Wellness and Specialist Bipolar Coach. I have previously had General Anxiety Disorder, Stress, Depression and Chronic Fatigue, so have my own personal experiences of other ill health.
I love spending time with my fiancé and he makes me laugh every day. He has been 100% supportive with my Bipolar and his belief in me as part of my Wellness and future is incredible. We are both extremely lucky to have a big family, who we love dearly. I am a sociable person and love my friends. I like to have positive people around me.
I went to college to study leisure gaining relevant qualifications in this area and worked as a life guard. I am a people watcher, so was a good excuse to observe human behaviour. I did save a few lives along the way too! I went on, to work for the Council in Customer Services. Within 6 months I was promoted into a Senior role and within 12 months I was in a Management role. I worked in that role 12 years. I especially loved developing people. I gained several relevant Qualifications and was inspired to become a Coach for the Institute of Customer Service as an additional side line to my role. I coached many people to achieve Customer Service Awards at different levels and I also achieved the highest Award of Innovations too. This is where my love of coaching started and my Management approach was very much a coaching style.
I love all different types of music. My favourite artist is Prince, however I enjoy Festivals so like a range of artists and bands. I enjoy house music too, including Fat Boy Slim and Pete Tong. I love chill out music abroad, when sitting in bars, around the pool or on the beach. I enjoy going to tribute bands too such as Elvis, Tina Turner and Whitney Houston. Any music that I can sing, clean, dance, bathe or relax to really!
I love sunsets, especially at Ibiza. I love what nature has to offer. I love flowers and rainbows and looking at the stars. I love caravanning and chocolate and champagne, ok prosecco then!! I love food! Tapas, Italian, Sunday Dinners, Mexican, Chinese, Full English Breakfast, or my all-time go to comfort meal…… beans on toast. I'm easily pleased! I also ensure I get my daily brain and mood food smoothies, vitamins and minerals.
I love decorative glass art, black and white photos, inspiring quotes, affirmations, images of old toys I played with in the 80's to reminisce on playful childhood memories, picture or photos of rainbow colours and visiting antique shops. Nice to meet you!!
