"Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of  
who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing  
who we are." 
Brené Brown 
As a Transformational Life Coach and Energy Therapist I am now committed to helping those who may be a few steps behind me to navigate life’s challenges, learn new ways of being and UNAPOLOGETICALLY rising up to be the best and truest version of themselves. 
 
I believe that we all bring wonderful gifts to this world but that just maybe some of us need a little help to remember them and allow them to come forward. I am so privileged to be able to fulfil this role for my clients and support them on their journey to finding their own Synthesis. 
 
 
I hope hearing my story is helpful. I hope my story shows that even in the darkness of being lost or stuck there is always LIGHT within to show you the way. I hope this shows that no matter what, we can in any moment  
CHOOSE something different and steer our life into a new direction. 
 

My Story 

Looking outside of myself for the answers 

My 20’s and early 30’s can be described as a Journey of Highs and Lows. I finished school to embark on a degree in Psychology because I wanted to help people. I had a desire to help those suffering with emotional turmoil to find a way back to emotional strength. After achieving my postgraduate degree, I fell into the trap of my harsh inner critic believing I was not good enough to complete a Masters of Psychology. So I left University and spent the next 10 years in high level Business and Change Management Consulting. 
 
I was earning well, meeting people, climbing the ladder but felt lost, unfulfilled and rather like a fraud to be honest! My Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (which I had since the age of 14 years old) made a resurgence, I was a total workaholic with terrible eating patterns and almost no emotional self-care. I was almost totally disconnected from my body awareness and spiritual life. My soul was calling out to me, but I just could not hear it. I thought that external validation was the answer to feeling better - the job I did, the car I drove, the awards I won, the places I travelled to and all these would somehow make me feel better, but it never did. 
 
I had the recurring thought there has to be more to life than feeling like this. But I was successful and well regarded in my field, so I plodded on. Later I got married and started a family and even as wonderful as this was I still felt I was missing some part of myself. I did not know where else to look to find it and sometimes it is easier just staying lost. 

A Shake up to Wake Up 

In my late 30’s life had other plans for me, I had read about these moments in many books and articles over the years. A life changing event that shakes you out of automatic pilot where you can no longer plod on the same way, hide the pain or ignore the stirrings of the soul.  
 
Looking back, I can now see how I was ignoring the little nudges from the Universe, from my body and from my spirit (the inner voice we often don’t listen to). Not hearing the nudges in my case became a huge wake up call which broke me into pieces and made me stop and listen! 
 
From the place I stand now I am SO grateful that this breaking into pieces happened as it allowed me to put myself back together again but this time the way that felt true and Authentically ME! 
 
This time spent picking up the pieces made me stronger and went a long way to healing wounds and patterns which I had carried for a longer time than I ever knew. 
 
It challenged me to find new ways of thinking, reopen my heart and step out of a victim mentality. I explored different ways to heal my mind, body and spirit connection some of which included EFT, Reiki, NLP, Life Coaching, crystals, aromatherapy, yoga and meditation but I can say one of the most important findings for me on this journey was my ‘Why’ and my spirituality. 

Living in Truth and Authenticity 

So, to the present day my heart has reawakened, and I choose every day to live fully in my truth. I won’t say that I have it all figured out, but I truly believe that we can rise above any situation no matter how terrible it may BE or FEEL. I now use all the tools and techniques learnt along the way to keep me aligned in Body, Mind and Soul making the bumps in the road of life (and they do and will come) learning experiences and far less painful.

Interesting things about me 

I am a Capricorn star sign – the steady goat who climbs the mountain no matter what the weather!! I was born in South Africa to a mother from Liverpool England and a father from Dundee Scotland…..an interesting mix. 
 
I love nature walking mostly on the beach or in the forest and know it keeps me sane, grounded and in flow. I am a trained Life Guard – I don’t know why and have never used these skills but hey I've got them! Never made it onto Baywatch ...disappointingly! 
 
Spiders are my phobia and evoke un-lady like shrieks from me!
