ABOUT AMY ERBACHER
+When you walk into a room, are you confident or do you fidget and adjust yourself constantly?
+Do you stand up for yourself in relationships or are you a people-pleaser?
+Are you happy in your relationships with others or do you second-guess yourself daily, give too much, and take too little?
DO YOU REALLY LOVE AND ACCEPT THE PERSON YOU ARE TODAY?
You may be laughing about the whole self-love, love yourself, blah-blah stuff.
But sit for a moment, focus, take a deep breath and really think about the question I’m asking you.
Maybe you have been starting to question yourself lately.
Maybe sitting down to read this will be the only time you take for yourself all day.
And maybe it’s the first time in a while you’ve reflected on what you truly want for your life.
From my own personal struggle, I’ve learned that if you don’t accept that you are enough exactly the way you are, you can’t expect deep, loving and meaningful relationships with others either.
THE FIRST RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE TO GET RIGHT IS THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOURSELF.
Lack of self-love and care has a ripple effect. It affects all areas of your life and I mean all.
Don’t be like me and learn the hard way! It took me years to love myself fully.
And I’m not talking about being vain.
I was stuck in a rut of misery for years.
LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN.
I was miserable for YEARS!
HERE’S WHAT MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MYSELF
USED TO LOOK LIKE BACK THEN.
+ No voice or courage to express how I felt personally.
+ Insecure about my value and self-worth.
+ No self-love or self- acceptance.
+ No boundaries around how I should be treated.
+ No coping skills.
+ No backbone or ability to stand up for myself.
+ Not feeling I was good enough.
+ No confidence or appreciation for my body.
Maybe some of these are familiar to you.
To not have confidence in yourself can feel isolating and downright debilitating. I’ve been sucked in, squashed, trampled on and spat out throughout my media career, relationships and life.
You see I was the girl who had the whole outside package.
But on the inside, I was in pain.
As an insecure 15-year-old country girl, I believed experiencing the bright lights of the city, modelling for magazines, and appearing on TV would be my ticket to freedom.
A WAY TO DISCOVER MYSELF AND BE ACCEPTED FOR WHO I WAS.
I achieved what I set out to do. I became a model and television presenter. I was fortunate to travel the world and make a healthy income from living this lifestyle.
But consistent rejection and comparison during castings in rooms full of beautiful girls led me to fall into self-sabotage and self-loathing.
I didn’t believe I was beautiful. I looked in the mirror and saw another person. My self-worth was on a rollercoaster from job to job, feeling high from being hired one minute, and falling in a heap when I wasn’t working.
The point is I’d never had the strong foundation of self-esteem in the first place.
At heart, believe it or not, I was a shy and sensitive person.
I lived like this until my mid-30s. Even when my new career in wellness was taking off, I didn’t have self-belief. From my career to friendships to my relationships with men - in every area of my life really - my low self-esteem reigned.
I’d been hurt.
I didn’t love myself.
I ACTED DESPERATE.
Men only wanted me for the chase. I dated arseholes who were never going to commit. I became a workaholic and worked extremely long hours, giving to everyone else except to myself.
I was lonely on weekends.
I went from drinking and partying to hide my pain to being a recluse.
And in the end, my body started to show signs - cracked crowns from grinding my teeth from stress, adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues.
I’D FINALLY HAD ENOUGH OF BEING TREATED LIKE SHIT, FEELING LIKE SHIT, AND NOT LOVING MYSELF ENOUGH TO ASK FOR BETTER.
It was like something fell from the sky and knocked me on the head.
That's when I started to turn my life around.
I needed to take back control of my own life.
Feel and be HAPPY.
I went on a soul-searching sabbatical; emotionally and physically numb. I packed up my bags, closed my business, left Sydney and went home to family in Queensland.
I STARTED TO LOOK INWARDS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE.
After three years immersed self-help books, Hay House events, healing retreats, life coaching, mentoring, and getting back to the grass roots of what really makes me happy, I rediscovered my passions: creativity and crafting beautiful self-care products.
The true and authentic art of self-care and rituals healed my pain. Instead of focusing on my exterior, I understood deeply that beauty was more than just slathering on products.
From positive affirmations to actively making changes, cutting ties with toxic people and being mindful about my lifestyle, I slowed down instead of grasping for my identity externally and aesthetically.
I OPENED MY HEART AGAIN.
I TOOK TIME TO INVEST IN ME.
AND I FELL IN LOVE. (See how looking after myself attracted the right kind of man!)
Today, I’m a self-relationship coach for women.
And I use my love of creating and crafting natural beauty products to enhance your beauty, self-belief and self-confidence.
I blend my media experience, beauty, wellness and coaching, including a decade running my own boutique skin studios in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, to help you find an intimate and nurturing relationship with yourself for true happiness.
My hands-on experience treating loyal clients with world-renowned personal care brands has helped me to define my philosophy on how to achieve gorgeous radiant skin, through a ‘less is more’ approach.
Becoming an authority on the world of skin wellbeing and skincare has only been part of the journey. With over 10 years’ experience in the wellness industry, my intimate knowledge of beauty goes back even further to when I was modelling and presenting, where I gained an invaluable education from some of the best makeup artists and facialists in media.
I have diplomas in Beauty Therapy, Clinical Aromatherapy, and Organic Skincare Formulations, each deepening my knowledge of skin anatomy and philosophy, and essential oil and botanical skincare product elements.
Running three Sydney-based Skin Health Studios and gaining knowledge of my clients’ wants, I developed a gentle approach and voracious appetite to offer the very best skincare.
I’ve cared for the skin and beauty needs – facials, manicures, pedicures, spray tans and more – of models and celebrities including Jennifer Hawkins, Delta Goodrem, Rachael Finch, Jessica Gomes, Miranda Kerr, Nicole Kidman, Selma Hayek and Kate Upton, and for publications including Harper’s BAZAAR, Vogue, Sports Illustrated, InStyle magazine, MINDFOOD among others.
Advertising campaigns with brands such as Bonds, Speedo, MYER, Mount Franklin and Swisse Vitamins have proved wonderful training to hone my skills even more.
Most importantly, through all of this, I’ve gained insight into AUTHENTIC BEAUTY.
Beauty to me is emotional.
This is how my passion developed as a trained life coach for women
AND THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITHIN THEMSELVES.
