About The Like Me CIC
Who Are We?
The Like Me CIC is a registered not-for-profit personal development and employability Community Interest Company founded by Jasmine Mbye, (yep, that’s the woman in the picture), which aims to empower and inspire more vulnerable women and girls to develop the confidence and courage to live a life they really want and show up in their world authentically. As well as celebrate themselves and other females in a sisterhood.
We specialise in empowering women and girls who typically have low self-worth and may have endured abuse, bullying, exploitation, family conflict (such as divorce), violence, whether in childhood or adulthood, and Common Mental Health Disorders, (such as anxiety, depression, stress) so they can recover, reconnect and rise to overcome and avoid these defining who they are. This is partly by providing a platform and partnering with other specialist support agencies.
Jasmine is an accomplished Speaker, Trainer, Coach and the Director of The Like Me CIC. Above all she is a wife and mother. Jasmine was born in Luton but grew up in London. She married in 2013 returning to Bedfordshire in 2015. Jasmine has always had a heart for working with women but was reluctant to work with girls although many suggested it. However, after having her first child in 2017, Jasmine was inspired to work with girls because she was blessed with a beautiful baby girl.
Jasmine has overcome many struggles in her life from a dysfunctional and abusive childhood to a toxic and abusive marriage. Yet, she has found her faith and inner work, personal development, has helped her recover from situations that would otherwise have been soul destroying, becoming better and stronger. It’s this determination that leads Jasmine to make a positive difference to females. Jasmine shares her story to empower and encourage others. Jasmine’s authenticity comes from her belief that when she lets her light shine others are encouraged to do the same, as so eloquently put by Marianne Williamson in her book Return to Love. Check it out the famous quote here: https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/1239848-a-return-to-love-reflections-on-the-principles-of-a-course-in-miracles.
Jasmine started developing people (that’s men and women) over 14 years ago. She has trained, coached and mentored individuals on a one-to-one basis as well as in small, medium and large groups ranging from unemployed to entry level to senior global executives.
Jasmine combines professional expertise; years of speaking, training, development, coaching and mentoring along with certification (CIPD certified, SET membership and more). Together with her personal experience, as outlined above, to create maximum impact, promoting positive change through all that The Like Me CIC does. It’s what we term the ‘Double P Approach‘.
