About me

I am a mum, wife, daughter, sister, friend, health coach and yoga teacher. But take all of these ‘hats’ away and I’m really just a raw, imperfect, big-hearted, authentic, vulnerable and passionate woman who is a work in progress.

 

I’m married to Bob, have two beautiful girls and am currently living in the Byron Bay hinterland, with my ever forgiving organic vegie patch, two chooks  and my ‘wild woman’ pup, Sadie.

 

I write a regular blog, “a re-claim to wholeness", inspiring you, my readers to have more energy, time, freedom and meaning in your lives.

 

I feel very blessed that I get to combine my love of teaching all about health and healing, and being able to connect with you.

My story, the Why & Whats'

I assist and support women from 21 to 81 to stand fully in their power and to re-claim their wholeness. To once again remember all the parts of you and to understand that you are in charge of your life. To look inward for knowledge not outward, and to fully grasp what it means to ‘believe in yourself’. I give you tools to manage your life.

 

Why do I do it?

Growing up I was the people-pleaser, the good girl, the kind one, the happy one, the cause-no-trouble one, the agreeing-with-everyone one, the keep-the-peace one. I so wanted to be liked, to be part of the cool group, to belong. 

Bed-time was plagued by nightmares and crying myself to sleep. I survived my childhood but in the process, I lost me. 

 

I lost sight of my passions, my creativity, my bliss and my unique skills. I put everyone else’s needs ahead of my own, compared myself to everyone else, had the biggest inner critic living inside of my head with no idea of how to express my own needs.

 

Fast forward to my thirties and CRUNCH TIME. I do believe life has a way of steering us back onto our path when we have ventured so far away. Because I had dismissed ME for so long, I got pretty sick. I suffered from adrenal fatigue, gut issues and anxiety big time. It was a beautiful WAKE-UP call.

 

I said enough! I was sick of listening to my family, my boss, sick of being tired, of having no energy, sick of being sick, sick of trying so hard….I had a choice.  I could either stay a victim or take full responsibility for my life. I chose the latter.  

 

I’ve discovered a new way of being….one where I am more open, spacious, graceful, flowing, allowing and easeful.  It is my natural state of being and is available to all of you. I’m fiercely protective when I need to be when it comes to my children and Mother Earth, compassionate, kind, understanding and have discovered how to express my own needs. And I am learning how to receive from others - a BIG one for me.

 

I don’t want you to take as long as me to discover the awesomeness of who you are. Nothing lights me up more than a woman who ‘remembers’ who she is.
