Hi there. If you have found me it is likely because you are looking for someone with the lived experience of moving through their own trauma who is now passionate about facilitating others to do the same. I help you (re)discover your own inner guide & nature, the truth of who you are.
My grounded and embodied approach to transformational practices allows you to dive deep into self-discovery and transformation. A health crisis gifted me the opportunity to leave everything I knew behind in 2018 and immerse myself in healing practices that would eventually save my body and spirit. I now offer the modalities that led to my greatest transformation to others.
My deepest desire is to help guide you from a place of discontent, confusion and ill health to your ultimate embodied joy. I know it is possible because I have been there. I spent over 20 years working – initially as a teacher and therapist, later running projects and organizations focused on improving the health and wellbeing of vulnerable children and their families. Whether it was earning my research PhD or acting as CEO for an international non-profit, I was the ultimate ‘do-er’ and overachiever. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom that I realised the symptoms I was experiencing of depression, anxiety, clinical burnout and a severe auto-immune condition were in fact rooted in unhealed trauma.
I didn’t yet know how to listen to my body, I didn’t yet understand the deep-rooted emotional programming that drove my need for success, I couldn’t yet fathom that I had an energetic body and that the unconscious mind was so much more powerful than the conscious. Eventually, after a nasty accident, I ‘woke up’ face down in a pool of blood with a severe concussion and traumatic brain injury. My body shut down and for the first time, I began to see. I was one of those people that had to hit bottom to find my way out. You don’t have to!
My background in psychology, education, counseling, teaching and behavior analysis all continue to inform my approach today; alchemized in new ways to offer you a uniquely grounded space to safely dive deep into self-discovery and transformation.
