Known for warmth, openness and depth of embodied presence and a capacity to work with others in a direct and connected experience of the heart, I share an integrated approach to working within the body, mind and heart with awareness, understanding and compassion.
Feminine, joyful and down to earth, I’m dedicated to holding your heart with care, kindness and sensitivity – all the way back into the freedom and wholeness of your true nature.
Put your hand on your heart, and listen to the sound of your soul.
The truth in you is pure, infinite, boundless love. You are already connected to everything and to all.
I’ve always been interested in the integrative nature of the body, mind and heart, and the energy shifting within us.
The connection to our body, mind & heart is beautiful and sacred. I connect fully to movement, breath and energy, and take frequent trips to nature. Longing to experience the freedom found there again and again.
I follow the curiosity of my own longing and the truth that I’ve found at the centre of myself. When I move and feel present in my body, I connect to the deepest part of myself – so my body can speak the stories moving through my flesh and bones.
Within our emotional wounds, suffering and pain, our truest gifts are hidden.
My offerings provide an integrated and feminine approach, providing a practical foundation to unwind patterns of suffering. Using an embodied, relational and mindful approach to movement, breath, energy and our relationship itself, you can move beyond the stories of your mind to embody your life more fully and with ease.
Offering an opportunity to slow down, become aware, and connect deeply to yourself – you will experience the feeling of being deeply present and fully awake – a dynamic opportunity to shift your energy, create new movement within yourself, and end suffering.
One of the deepest yearnings of the human heart is to be what we truly are. Living an authentic, liberated and fulfilled life requires us to enter into the question “who am I?”. This offers the true resolution to the unnecessary suffering by allowing us to connect directly to the real love, peace, clarity, creativity, depth and joy that is woven into the very fabric of our own being.
Live an authentic life free from insecurity and fear. In a field of unconditional acceptance, we will dive through and beyond conditioned patterns, to melt the construct of self that keeps you from living in the love and awareness that is your true identity.
I know that finding and working with someone you feel comfortable with is a very important part of your journey of growth and understanding. This is a sacred and important relationship – I am open and available to discuss how I can support you in your life.
I look forward to being with you.
