Hi, I am Tracy, an English woman living in France, and I work on a freelance basis with a portfolio of clients that I love, in fields that I am passionate about worldwide virtually and in person.
I am, in no particular order, a writer, lover of life, mum, creator, photographer, baker, endlessly curious individual, curator of interesting things, Desire Map & Goals with Soul Facilitator, publisher, book editor and publicist, traveller, stargazer and change creator in my fabulous 50's.
Discovering The Desire Mp and Souls With Goals transformed my life in unexpected and fundamental ways...
"I didn't change, I just found myself"
It also enabled me to rediscover just simply "being", to understand that if I was always racing to the next "moment" I was never living the one I was in, I wasn't really living life. I find joy in the ordinary (which is actually quite extra-ordinary when you really look) I collect more moments and memories and fewer things, embrace my creativity and I remember to stop and breath.
I'm honoured to be able to share the experience, the methods and the joy of rediscovery with other Phenomenal Women, to help them learn that sometimes it is in the winds of change that blow through our lives that we find our true direction.

Q & A
Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?
Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?
I took my time Desire Mapping the first time. I read everything I could that was available from Danielle, listened to her audio and avidly followed the community pages. I Desire Mapped in deepest rural France where I live. I'm surrounded by nature and a quietness that gave me a chance to be still enough to hear what was inside me. It was a revelation, and it began my journey.
The second time I approached it differently and took some time out just for me in a cafe in Paris, it couldn't have been more different but it enabled me to hear and access other parts of my soul, heart and mind. It was here that my new life was really born. I had one Core Desired Feeling "PHOENIX" It became my guide and was transformational.
Desire Mapping is an ongoing and continuous act of self-discovery, self-love and personal growth which enables me to be better each day. I am, as we all are, a true work in progress. I loved the discovery that Desire Mapping is portable, flexible and responsive, that as wonderful as candles, the right lighting, the best location, the most calming music may be, what's truly important is that you give yourself fully to the process, being honest and open with myself was at times so very hard, but the rewards have been outstanding and life-changing.
Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.
I knew instantly that the word Phoenix would be my CDF from the moment that it popped into my head in January 2016. The three years before had been incredibly tough, often as a result of bad decisions on my part and I was probably at my lowest point. I kept bright and cheerful for my daughter's sake but it was the very blackest of times.
I became more than a little obsessed with understanding the meanings and symbolism of the word and I found the following quotation
The thing that is
really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on
and beginning the
work of becoming
And I just knew that it was my time to rise, Phoenix-like into a new phase of my life.
I asked the question for every action and choice I had to make "Will this enable me to live as a Phoenix?" Living mindfully and purposefully in that way enabled me to turn my life around over the following months; and the words of the most Phenomenal Woman, Maya Angelou "And Still I Rise"
Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?
More and more women are searching for their passion and purpose following periods of significant life transition that may be that triggered by children leaving home, divorce, widowhood, retirement, redundancy, health changes, the menopause or by simply wanting to make the most of life, to rediscover or find their desires, to understand what truly brings them happiness, peace and fulfillment.
Having been through or experienced many aspects of those life transition points, I have redefined and recreated my life. It is not easy or gentle work to first get to know yourself, I didn't like what I saw on many levels, but it is essential to do if you are to give yourself space and permission to grow and change. I learnt many things the hard way but was also privileged to discover who I really was meant to be through following the Desire Map programme. Quite simply, it changed my life.
I want to share that knowledge, experience and joy with other women, be a helping and guiding hand allowing them to truly become Phenomenal Women
