Kettering woman's miracle makeover
A 38-year-old Northamptonshire mum of three has won an exclusive competition that has helped to change her life.
Michelle, who lives in Kettering, Northamptonshire, applied for an ‘SOS Divorce Makeover‘ after hearing about the competition on a social networking website for people going through divorce.
Since winning the competition, the brainchild of Starting Over Show creator Suzy Miller, Michelle has had access to thousands of pounds worth of free legal and personal advice to help her overcome the trauma of her relationship breakdown. She also had a makeover from Twinns Hairdressers in Mayfair, followed by a professional photoshoot with Mayfair-based top photographer Scott Collier.
Michelle said: “I am so glad I entered the Relationship Makeover competition. When I entered, I was really desperate and it was like clutching at the final straw. I can honestly say that the advice I have been give as part of the SOS makeover has changed my life.
For instance, I didn’t know what collaborative law was. Thanks to James Pirrie of Family Law in Partnership, now I know collaborative law, and alsomediation, are a far better way of resolving things than ending up in court in a bitter dispute. The life coaching I had from Julie Jones of Changes Forever completely transformed my thinking. I thought life coaching was just for the rich and famous, but now I know it can be worthwhile and effective for anyone – whatever their situation.”
Starting Over Show Creator Suzy Miller said: “It was a very big day for Michelle – her first ever experience of life coaching, her first introduction to collaborative law, and her first chance to be made to feel special and have some great photos that reflect the beautiful lady that she is and the person she is striving to become, because of her situation rather than in spite of it.
