    my journey

    In my own words…

    At the age of 14 I began attending weekly workshops at a local meditation group. I was the youngest member of that group by about 25 years… I felt like I’d returned home from a long lonely voyage. I found myself reading any book I could get my hands on about meditation and holistic healing modalities. At 16 I came across a book about regression therapy and became absorbed in the subject, even practicing on my best friend!

    When I turned 18 I travelled to Nepal to work with children. I learned Vipassana Meditation while practicing 10 days of silence. There I discovered and experienced first hand the incredible potential of the subconscious mind that lies within each of us.

    Returning home to Australia I was swept up in the reality of finding a job, buying a house and all the the “normal” things expected of us in life.

    During my thirties I took a long hard look at myself and my life…

    Somewhere along the way I’d gotten off track. I decided that I wanted to make a difference in the world in a way that felt meaningful to me. What I quickly realised is that I had lost connection with the only person who could help me… myself!

    I began re-investing in myself. I sought out a variety of holistic healing modalities; I learned and I applied what I learned in my day to day life and I was amazed at the results.

    Having realised this transformation within myself I was inspired to study Yoga, Meditation & Hypnotherapy. As these were the tools I used to reconnect with my internal guidance system, release large amounts of past programming and re-create myself with conscious awareness.

    I developed more self-awareness, self-compassion, and began to thrive in life rather than merely survive.

    Today I specialise in Hypno-psychotherapy and enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy utilising a host of transformational tools and to aid in helping others to return to a state of wellness, wellbeing and resilience within themselves.

    Holding space for others to release and to realign is my passion, purpose and happy place. 

    Here’s what I know to be true… it all begins with YOU.

    When you decide to work in partnership with your whole being; mind, body and soul… Then, and only then, are you truly ready to allow your best TRUE & BEST SELF to radiate from within you.
