As early as in high school I experienced people of all ages confiding in me. I must have given some useful, but naïve advice, given my lack of life-experience in those early days. Nevertheless, I was inspired to help others and do some meaningful work. Innocently I started studying theology and was especially interested in soul-care.
Those early purpose driven studies, after all the type of service that I was intending to do was right on pointe, were rather disappointing to me. It was all theory, which I found interesting, but I wanted to learn how to help people on a more practical level.
A little frustrated about the crusty rules of the church, I turned my back to theology and pursued a post-grad course in Public Relations. Now, that was fun. I loved organising events for journalists or big conference presentations for the company I worked for. However, I still experienced colleagues coming to me, looking for comforting words and a kind gesture.
Answering my soul’s call
After migrating to Australia in 2000 with three young children, I initially continued with public relations and marketing, but soon answered this persistent calling of my soul to change careers. I trained in natural therapies, and various life coaching and counselling modalities. Since I had gathered some life experience with raising kids, relationships, divorce, corporate and small business, my natural abilities were now enhanced with some solid knowledge and grown-up compassion.
I was fascinated by personal growth techniques (still am), and keen to learn more and more about humankind. I’ve collected many certificates and qualifications and, of course, kept working on myself. I even studied psychology, followed by a Master of Research in psychology, and now I’m doing a PhD in psychology.
Discovering my authentic self and purpose
For ages, I didn’t know what to do with all those different passions I had. Was I meant to be a body worker or a yoga teacher or something completely different? I felt that I wasn’t allowed to do what I truly wanted (which was everything combined).
Finally, I realised that even though I have lots of qualifications* in seemingly unrelated areas, they represent the unique me. Those passions and skills make me who I am and how I can best serve you.
Let me explain how it all fits together: I’ve got a keen interest in anything health related. And that is, because I believe that being healthy is our birthright. By healthy I mean not only physical health, but also emotional, mental, and spiritual health.
And yes, health is our birthright, but it needs a little TLC. We must look after ourselves and put some effort into our own healing, if we let things slide or we have some major childhood wounds. It’s so worthwhile to invest all this energy into yourself. That’s how you get to live the life you deserve and how you’ll be able to serve others around you.
I want to shout it from the rooftops!
Wake up, women, do the work! (Yes, there’s work involved to get what you want). Reap the rewards of living a meaningful and healthy life – in all aspects of course 😉 and have fun with it 💯
I see myself as a guide of personal change, and all my work revolves around this idea. You’ve heard it before, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. As your guide, I can lead you with kindness and compassion, but I cannot do the ‘work’ for you.
Over the past 15 years, I have worked with many clients, guiding them gently through their journey. I love watching their growth.
And, just in case you’re thinking that I’ve got it all together, I don’t. I’m better than I was when I first started my own change journey (i.e. more self-aware, calmer and better connected with my soul) but I get stuff wrong, still suffer sometimes from self-doubt, feeling small or stressed out just like everybody else of us perfectly imperfect human beings.
What do I do about this?
I use the tools that I teach to my clients to keeping myself positive and to truly be the master of my mind. Our minds are strong and want to have their way with us. This is great when you want to solve a maths problem or organise an event, and it can be annoying when the mind goes into overdrive and tries to get involved in things that are better governed by our soul. I also work with mentors or coaches to address anything that might come up for me. You see, it’s not about fixing anything. We are human, but we are not broken. This journey, I’m on and your journey that is in front of you, is about evolving and growing every day. I see myself as a life-long learner and firmly believe that it keeps me young. Every day, in every way, I want to get better and better.
So, now that that’s out of the way, would you like to know what I offer?
You can choose from one to one change sessions or programs such as the SoulFreedom and the SoulHealing programs. These programs are designed to either guide you one on one, or you as part of a small group of like-minded women through a change journey.
