Hi, I’m Saloni!
I’m a Well-being Coach, a Happiness Facilitator, a Mental Health First Aider, and a Writer.
I’ve probably had an above-average number of brushes with death for my thirty odd years on Earth, and every time it’s changed me. And I absolutely believe life is too short for living anything but your best life, probably from this constant death in the face thing.
I’ve spent the last 15 years developing a career in marketing & copywriting. I got my first byline when I was 15, my writing has won awards, I’ve worked on international marketing campaigns and people say lovely things to me like ‘I knew that you wrote this, it has that dusting of you all over it!’
I’ve also spent the last 15 years struggling with my mental health. I didn’t really feel like I was building a career because I never expected to live beyond 25, so I was just doing what I was good at to make money in the meantime.
Until I got to a point where I was sort of resigned to being here. I was still sad, but I was here, so I started focusing on each day as it came. When I went freelance six years ago, I had no f*cking idea what I was doing. But what I was doing, wasn’t working; I had to make a change. I was struggling to keep hold of my mental health, I’d just found out that I had cervical cancer and I’d just started my masters degree.
So, I started my own business working as a Marketing Consultant and Copywriter, and I tried to take control of my happiness and mental health. I jumped with no security net, no savings, I lived in a house share in South East London and there was no option to move back in with my parents or family, I had to make it work.
By taking tiny steps in one direction, I just kept putting one foot in front of another. And then I poked my head out when I was 27, and realised that I think I might be happy? And at 30, I realised that I was pretty content.But although I was finding myself, something was missing, I wanted to help people. I wanted to show people that there was a way through that intense sadness that I experienced all those years ago.
So, I did a diploma in Life Coaching and Positive Psychology, I trained as a Mental Health First Aider, and become a Happiness Facilitator. I wanted to spread some joy around. I wanted to show other people that happiness is in the every day. I had learnt that happiness was in comfy socks, hazelnut syrup in your morning coffee & burning the fancy candles that you’ve been saving for a ‘special’ occasion, and I wanted to show other people how to lean into those tiny blobs of joy.
I qualified as a life coach in 2023, and using my background in Mental Health, Positive Psychology, and Happiness Facilitation, I’ve started to work with clients who need support prioritising themselves in their lives, who have gotten stuck in a pattern of people pleasing, who’ve found they have no habits or routines to lean on, who are lacking in confidence or just aren’t sure how to get from A to B.
