Bola Abimbola MBA MBPsS CTRC
Managing her emotions was something Bola had to do from childhood as a stutterer. She quickly learnt with the support of her father, (who was also a stutterer and a Barrister at Law), before the age of five, that the only way to stutter (or stammer) less, to talk, communicate and express herself coherently was to manage her emotions. As a parent of a now young man with autism and complex health needs, she also cultivated emotional resilience managing the day to day mental and emotional overwhelm. She discovered that being calm led to best outcomes for her home and business. This all led to her spiritual awakening and the nuts and bolts of her work in Emotional Intelligence.
