Do you sometimes feel your true self missing, lost or trapped, hidden behind masks, held down by your past or other people’s rules.
This website honours our struggle to be who we really are. It started when you and I were little, happened again as teenagers, then as grown ups, and again right up to today.
Yes I am still struggling but I’m winning lots more now than I used to. As a kid, I struggled with a narcissistic parent who tried so hard to take me down. Somehow I managed to hang on to the main parts of me, but at a price. My struggle continued when I grew up,with people at work, partners, friends.
For each of us it never ends because someone is always trying to get us to be the person they want us to be, do the things they want us to do, their way, but we must never give up.
Are you ready now, to continue your struggle and be more and more your real me again and again?
This website includes the stories from some of the people I know from around the World and the ways they are winning the struggle.
What can you do to improve your chances of winning the next round? There’s lots of information here as I share what I have learned and what other people from around the World have found that works for them.
Being the “Real Me”
The Skills, the Techniques, the Art of Being your true Self -
What is it about Being the Real me?
There are many reasons, some valid, why people may choose to spend their lives trying to avoid discovering too much about their well hidden real self.
So if you aren't too excited about starting on this incredible journey, then this may be the right time to log out. I wouldn’t want to get you involved in something that would only end in discomfort.
Becoming more Authentic More Real
However there are others who at some point in their lives realise that their true authentic self remains somewhere lost or trapped inside, hidden by comfortable masks, held down by other people’s rules, usually from childhood.
If you are one of those people, welcome!. Provided you have the courage to break away from those old clamps and blockages, rules and restrictions then you and I can work together to take you to the place you have already dreamed of, a place where you can at last be your real me.
The old masks will remain in the background because there are times in our lives when we still need them. But so much of the time you can safely drop them and be yourself.
One restriction -
My notes can guide you, show you how, get you started, share my experiences, but I can’t actually do the climb for you.
Think of me as a conductor, waving my baton, my notes are a bit like your sheet music, but you alone can play your own instrument to produce magical changes in your life.

Working with your real Emotional Age
The more aware you are of Emotional Age issues the more real you become and the more truly Powerful you are. The more aware you are of your constantly changing Emotional ages the more personal power you have and the less anyone else can take your power. That’s a big step forward in becoming the real you. I recommend this as the best place to start but it takes some explaining. So it’s in a separate section

Prepare and Protect yourself from other people who try to control you by Undermining and Unbalancing you, or trying to Manipulate you.
The next step is to look at how your real authentic self has been taken from you both now and in the past by other people who didn’t want you to enjoy the power of being the real authentic you.

Some people seem to be obsessed not just with with controlling others, but actively putting them down, disempowering them. Preventing them from being real. Some who do this are full on narcissists,but many others just use narcissistic patterns. That can still cause lots of damage if you’re on the receiving end.

Inner Patriarchs and Inner Matriarchs -
They don’t even belong to you, they are like refugees from someone else’s inner village, usually a controlling parent. Unmasking them and naming them is the first step in freeing yourself from them.
