I’ve always been interested in natural therapies but worked as a corporate creative. In 1999, whilst working full time, I completed a Diploma in Clinical Massage, followed by a certificate in Shiatsu and Reiki. I became a Certified Infant Massage Therapist and began working on weekends at Glebe Healing Centre in Sydney. After relocating to Brisbane in 2003, I worked as a therapist for a Day Spa in the City and New Farm. After I was married and mortgaged, I returned to the corporate sector working in marketing roles for recruitment.
Two years later, I was approached by Assiram Natural Therapies to rebrand their two city clinics. I managed the clinic, reception, branding and communications. I went through two pregnancies supported by an amazing team of acupuncturists, massage and musculoskeletal therapists. I began to fully appreciate the importance of natural therapy in daily life.
A few years later, working in education, I completed a parenting course which lead me to commence studies in Holistic Counselling. I began the juggle of working four days a week, wrangling small children, and a Diploma. This course included voluntary work with Redlands Healing Centre, helping to establish programs for addiction. During this time I stopped drinking and wrote an e-book about it called Hell in a Handbag, you can find it here.
Working and studying in the area of counseling and holistic health I have been honoured to meet many talented therapists, qualified in a variety of techniques and I am grateful to refer to these talented people.
For 25 years, I worked in many fast-paced work environments, in a variety of industries in Sydney, London, Brussels, Africa, and Brisbane. I have worked across the health care sector, banking, medical, legal, education, recruitment, and not-for-profit. This has enabled me to have a thorough understanding of the difficulties of achieving work/life balance and how the stress of this impacts relationships, family, health, and well-being.
I have lived experience with anxiety. I know how this can play out with emotional stress, relationship breakdown, addiction, physical ailments, including overwhelm, fatigue, and burnout. I have strategies and shortcuts to help better navigate life better and love sharing my lessons! If it’s time for you to change some stuck patterns in your life, I can support you. It’s time to bring back the joy.
Spirituality and meditation
I have been a yogi student for over 20 years, am a Kids’ Yoga instructor and I meditate as often as I can. I am highly sensitive and use intuitive guidance to tune into messages from the Universe and spirit. In 2019, I completed my Reiki Masters which allows me to pass on the teachings from my lineage. During an energy healing session, I can balance your chakras, cleanse your aura and deliver healing messages.
I have sat in a Psychic Development circle for over 10 years, in 2021 I completed a Spiritual Coaching certificate with the James Van Praagh School of Mystical Arts, and in 2023 ventured to a retreat in the holy city of Haridwar in India to further deepen my breathwork and devotional healing. This means I can support you on your path to greater meaning. Working together we can collaborate on goals, and your sense of purpose using meditation, visualisation, breathwork, and guidance from spirit. These techniques will allow you to be more open to receiving and move through blockages to freedom.
