TEDx Speaker / Musician / NLP Practitioner / Mama
Hi, my name is Rachel Davis. I'm a musician, NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, speaker and mama to 2 incredible boys who have inspired my life's work. I live in Brighton with my 2 boys and I LOVE music. My Dad was was a musician and I began learning piano aged 5, writing my first song at 15. I had a successful corporate career for many years, but after having my two children, I knew I needed something more flexible that could work around the needs of my young family. But I also wanted to do something I loved. I decided to follow my lifelong passion for music and I began delivering live music sessions to under 5's and their carers in a local church hall, which I did in Brighton for over 6 years.
After the sudden loss of my brother and Dad gave me the perspective I needed to leave a long term abusive marriage, I found myself bringing up 2 children alone. I was trapped in my head with racing thoughts, highly reactive and full of insecurity and self- doubt. I turned within as a way to deal with my thoughts and feelings and in doing so, found strength and courage I never knew existed and in doing so, completely transformed my life. I became fascinated with the invisible world of thoughts and feelings and retrained in NLP & Hypnotherapy.
I knew I wanted to teach what I had learned to my children, but guess what...my kids don't listen to me! So I put everything I'd learned into songs for children and combined them with the powerful strategies I had learned on my personal journey from fear to fierce. I now use music help parents become more intentional in their lives and their parenting and encourage mental and emotional wellbeing in their children, so that they can go onto live to their full potential.
