See The Change You Want to Be

I have many friends, many speak a different language to me, many are of a different social class, many are older or younger than me. I feel it is important to surround yourself with good people. This is how you grow.

 

I have vast experience in the caring profession as a mental health nurse and a trained counsellor. During my personal and professional life. I have experienced anxiety, PTSD, bullying, panic attacks, abuse, grief, negative thoughts and beliefs. A series of stressful life events which in turn lead to a full breakdown.

 

After a period of travelling and experiencing life in an Ashram on mainland Malaysia, I turned my life of food and drink around. This was my journey and my recovery. Everyone's journey is different, and it is important not to judge a person by the chapter that you walk in on. It is no exaggeration to say that it not only saved my life but changed my life.

I had to do the work but was supported every step of the way. I was introduced to various techniques and practices. All of which were safe, comfortable and useful and that I could practice independently. I now use and teach these techniques to others enabling them better to manage the emotional stress of everyday life.

If you are out of kilter, I can rebalance you.
If you can’t find the words your body will speak your mind.
Uniquely placed for your mind, body and spirit.
