My holistic approach focuses on heart-centred work grounded in cutting edge science. Transformation is my expertise & passion!
I believe that anyone can create change in their life and that sometimes we all need extra support, someone to talk to, especially in times of loss, stress and upheaval. The pathway unfolds with healing the past and looking towards a positive and meaningful future. In a personal session, I utilise my extensive trainings and experience to guide clients in (re)connecting with themselves and releasing the past; identifying and achieving their goals; and empowering them to achieve substantial, positive and genuine change in their lives.
We all exist within mental constructs, patterns and habits. Our known identities. These dictate our thoughts, feelings, and actions, and in turn, often determine how we experience life and all too often suffering. I will support you to develop greater self awareness. With better understanding of one-self, such as developing insight into any self-sabotaging behaviours & coping strategies, one can then be empowered to make new choices. To move forward with purpose towards your dreams, goals and the most magnificent expression of your potential.
As a trauma-informed Mindfulness, Meditation and Yoga teacher and Reiki Master, I understand the vital importance of uniting the mind, body and spirit. I will work with you to develop your own meditation and mindfulness practices with a focus on embodiment to harness your nervous system's relaxation response to better manage stress and anxiety.
As a single mum of three teenagers I know how important healthy habits and a support network are for gracefully balancing the pressures of daily life. Regular exercise, meditation and yoga are a pivotal part of my life. As are long walks on the beach and time out in nature.
