Sareta & Cee Catch Up
During this week’s catch up, Sareta and Chioma share details of how they practice the concept of ‘choosing yourself’ and how to be selfish in the most positive sense. Self-care doesn’t have to be about facials and spa days; it’s about putting yourself first so you can live while being the very best version of yourself. If you’re lacking in self-love, you’re not going to be capable of showing up wholeheartedly for others.
This weeks guest
Tamu is an emotional well-being coach and the purveyor of joy. She wants people to enjoy who you are from the inside out. She believes in the potent power of pleasure; joy is a mighty healing tonic with the capacity to teach us how to own the full spectrum of what we feel.
This week, Chioma and Sareta talked to Tamu Thomas, founder of Live Three Sixty. She’s a well-being Coach, qualified Social Worker & Somatic Coach. She helps over-functioning, highly ambitious women tune in to how powerful they are. Tamu supports her clients so they can begin to create systems of care for themselves and avoid rinsing themselves out.

The ladies talk about Tamu’s life journey and how, even if it didn’t feel like it initially, her experiences led her to where she is now. She has always been a gatherer of people, bringing them together and organising events, from her school days, nay, nursery days! Formally, she ran a Brunch Club, where women in the creative industries could come together and discuss in a supportive environment. There was also Motherhood Reconstructed, with a previous Women Who Rebrand guest Leah, where Black mothers could come together and share experiences. She has been connecting people, from seemingly different and incompatible groups, for years. Nothing has been an accident; everything happens for a reason!
Tamu describes herself as the ‘Purveyor of Joy’; she explains joy as a settled state of confidence, contentment and hope. Her theory helps us see how choosing yourself by prioritising and setting boundaries can ensure that your happiness is protected. She begs us to give ourselves a break and show ourselves some compassion.
“I support freelance and entrepreneurial women to learn how to take care of their needs, enjoy who they are and cultivate a trusting friendship with themselves.
I am a joyful lover of life. I am curious about what it is to be human and I love to learn. I live in a state of awe and wonder. I will never not be amazed that we were birthed from this beautiful planet. The fact that we live on a floating rock covered in soil and water only protected by the ozone layer is amazing. I think it is a real privilege to be a human being and wish we embodied that, I recognise that this is a privilege – I know that my parents and ancestors endured a lot for me to create this privilege for myself despite living in a system that is built to oppress me.” – Tamu Thomas
“I can’t choose you above me…if it starts to feel like a pair of ‘too tight’ skinny jeans, I’m out of there!”
