I don't know about you, but I want to live a life that is so full and wild, that it takes my breath away.
That I have to pinch myself, making sure that i am not in a blissful dream.
I want to one day look back at how I LIVED, and know that my life was FULL - Full of outrageous laughter, and indescribable joy.
I want to feel empowered in making decisions. AND vibrant, vivacious, exuberant, whilst staying centred, calm and gentle.
I want to feel spacious, and courageous. I want to cultivate sensitivity and reverence with, and for my body.
I want to feel illuminated. Bright. Open. Graceful
Before a time when it was just me and my computer. Before the Business, and the Metrics, and hashtags and blog posts, I was just a gal who believed that if you worked your booty off, you'd reap the rewards.
Long Hours in Corporate. Late nights at the theatre. Long Training sessions in the studio. All these scenarios were perfectly reflected in my life.
Of which, naturally lead to burn-out, chronic-fatigue, and a hip injury that saw me laying flat on my back for months.
That life was BEFORE learning all about the body, mind and spirit.
Before understanding the wisdom within.
As I lay there, flat on my back after months of pain, feeling irritated and agitated, I thought -
'There's gotta be a better way'
I sold my Soul (yet again) for a few more corporate gigs, and landed with yet another heavy thud - fatigue. migraines and lost-sense-of-Self.
Where had a I gone? Who had I become?
The lights were on and they were firing on all cylinders, but there was no-body hOMe. I had stack of dollar bills to show for my efforts, but no Soul to show for it.
After a heart-to-heart with my husband, I started my own business in the Health and Wellbeing Space. Seems that you always need to teach what you need to hear the most ~ and with a few Coaching & Holistic Diploma's under my belt, I quickly managed to go out 'on my own'.
The thing about owing your own business, is that no body tells you how challenging it is.
Every moment of hope, slapped with a punch of self-doubt, more bills and a deep-seated pain inside my gut that whispered songs of “not enough-ness’
I'm not sure if anyone has ever told you this, but starting your own business is like going on a self-personal-development path, that once you start, there's no stopping, not going back. You can't unlearn what you learn along the way.
Old and outdated patterns and nasty behaviours surface to haunt you.
Painful feelings of shame and blame have you second guessing every decision.
Missed social events bring up childhood trauma's of not being included.
Anxiety and Fear showing up in the most inconvenient of times.
And a fear so big that it paralysed me to show up for her business, for my family, and most importantly, for myself at times. And when I finally decided to make a change:
I realised that I was allowing my emotions and my emotional baggage to hold me back from living my best life.
Burning myself with 'should's and must's'.
When in reality, I knew that I, the woman that I had become, could take my power back, and clear the blocks that were leaving me so powerless.
I discovered that the programs which I carried in my subconscious mind could be changed.
That this work (to reprogram my set of beliefs), would change the trajectory of my life. I learned:
And after all that was dialled in, I discovered how to live in a state of emotional and energetic balance, never being a victim to my circumstance every again. Relying on the wisdom which is inside of me to make important decisions. Not having to give my power away. Softening my edges to drop out of fear, lack and scarcity ~ into abundance, love and compassion.
And best of all…
I’ve had the honour of helping hundreds of women like you sidestep their own cultural and generational patterns to co-create lives that they LOVE living too.
Not having to commit to forever.
But actually taking one day at a time. To ease into this new identity. To show yourself that anything is possible, even if it's only for ONE day.
If you want to change, if you're sick and tired of freak-outs and crippling overwhelm, then I've got you covered.
I’ve shown women not only how to change their mindset, but how to co-create from a place of 'anything is possible'.
I teach what I’ve personally done to build a life that I jump out of bed every morning to live.

If I hear one more woman give her power away by believing her 'not enoughness' (not smart enough, not pretty enough, not educated or blonde or thin enough), I might just whip out my oregano oil and spray it on you - NEAT. (just kidding, I would never do this because as we all know, oregano oil shouldn't be used neat on the skin - it burns baby!)
Because I know you’re ready to do the work.
That’s why you’re here.
That’s why you want a different life. Why you want a different life for your children than what you had. (if you have them)
That’s why self help & personal development books are a-plenty on your book shelf, 'cause you're trying to figure this all out on your own.
That’s why you’ve invested REAL hours and real dollars trying to find a healer, and a psych, and a therapist to help you 'fix this'.
By reading this, you’ve proven that you’re willing to DO the work – you just want to make absolutely sure you’re doing the RIGHT work at the RIGHT time.
I've experienced the deep and shattering emotions of guilt, mental-suffering, rebellion & conforming, over and over again. I've worked through every emotion under the sun and I turned out to be one of the happiest people I know.
My love-affair with movement is REAL and ever-lasting. Music. Movement. It's all part of the exquisite experience of healing and expression. I danced most of my life, in various forms and formats. Passionately swaying my hips to the beats and bongos at Latin American Competitions around the world for the better part of 8 years. Fake tan, long nails, late nights, and calorie counting were well-worth the immense joy and freedom I felt when the soft swooning of the rumba melody carried me away.
I can park in the tightest of car-spots, and can back-up reverse like a champion. I love me some high-speed-car-chasing (in safe containers of control of course) & have been on many advanced driving courses. CAN handbrake-turn like a queen.
I love heat. Hot weather. Hot yoga. Sauna’s. Bring ‘em on.
My perfect idea of a holiday is to plonk hubby and I on an island with no internet access, No TV, no night-life, and a good stack of books. BLISS
I am obsessed and in love with our fur-child, Marvin. He is the the light of our lives, and brings us so much joy, presence and gratitude. He has a personality-PLUS, and we've succumbed to the fact that we're the sort of puppy-parents that plan our lives around his walks and outings. Yep. No shame here. He is the CEO of our lives, and we love him for it.
I LOVE MY JOB. Truly. Deeply. Madly. I work both as an educator and a coach, and honestly, were I to win the lottery, I'd still be doing what I'm doing. Perhaps I'd be doing it from my hut in the Maldives, but ... I'd still be doing it. I love watching how the unravelling of the brain opens you up to new possibilities. How the opening of the heart creates new states BEing. I wouldn't trade bearing witness to that - for anything in the world.
