In these pages you will find information about
And resources to nourish and inspire your inner health and wisdom with
You are unique.
There will never be another you.
That is the gift of your life and something to be treasured.
And you can continue to find ways to be “more you”.
When we are challenged and overwhelmed we can lose connection to that gift, the power of our individuality and all the resources and instinctive wisdom we have to bring to whatever we are called to show up to in our rich and unpredictable lives.
I offer teaching, individual and workplace coaching and resources to empower you to create the best possible self care and lifestyle conditions for your thriving at home, at work and in all your relationships. I am your ally and guide on your journey to be your own unconditional self-advocate and skilful inner coach. I help you discover and nurture your inner wisdom, instincts and inspiration and to work through challenges by retrieving your relationship with your deep self.
A major part of my offering is a natural, intuitive approach to meditation that may surprise you, yet at the same time feel surprisingly familiar – since it comes from within your own individual being and cherishes your uniqueness.
I specialise in working with people experiencing the journey of chronic illness, anxiety and depression. However, I also work with many individuals who simply want to keep their routes into themselves healthy and alive through practices of self tending and those who want to engage in a healthy, natural, relevant approach to meditation.
