Re-emerging is founded by Rachel Smith who is passionate about people taking responsibility and living their lives as themselves for themselves.
‘After several decades of living a life under the restriction of many labels and identities – wife, carer, mother, widow, girlfriend, office manager I began my re-emergence to life as me by walking away from my secure job in office management and re-training to become a sports massage therapist. Loving the positive impact I was able to have on other people's lives I extended my ‘body' interest to the ‘mind' and trained and qualified with The Smart School of Coaching as a life coach and NLP hypnotherapy practitioner. I then completed the triangle of mind, body and soul by training and qualifying as a spiritual and intuitive life coach with Jayne Morris and The Smart School and training as a Laughter Yoga Leader.
I work with carers organisations across the South East delivering programmes designed to empower them to make small changes which have a big impact on their own lives and those they care for. I have worked with widows, helping them on their journey to re-emergence after their loss. I run a busy sports and remedial massage clinic at Southcote Proactive Health in Maidstone.
I love to be active and outside, running is my particular passion. I fulfilled a childhood dream held since watching the first London Marathon back in 1982 by running my first marathon in Jan 2010. The long distance running bug was well and truly caught and in June 2013 I celebrated running my 100th marathon, just a few months after tackling my first 100 mile endurance run in the US! I love the ultra running community, individuals coming together to run and acheive their own personal goals, helping and supporting each other along the way.
Passionate about people taking responsibility for their lives I am especially interested in maintaining good health and ageing well through activity, good food and connecting with others.
I love photography, nature and travel – often combining them with running to make the perfect holiday!
