I grew up in Sydney and was born and raised by two loving parents.As a child I was very intuitive and highly sensitive to energy. I realised I could help heal animals and people through my touch. I loved the arts - especially dance, drama and painting. I was an all-rounder and a perfectionist, and excelled in whatever I put my mind to.
I am a woman of personal and collective paradigm shifts and progressive movements.
I have been reborn many times in this lifetime.
Following my intuition was the catalyst for my souls awakening I believe in the power of storytelling, and it is my hope that through stories and wholehearted connection, humanity steps forward with courage, grace and ease for deep healing and new paradigms.
I looked up to my Entrepreneurial Father who owned shelves of books on spirituality, philosophy, business and mindset. I wanted to be like him. I was meditating to his music and learning about self-hypnosis, and the Mind Body connection, while my class mates were talking about the latest episode of Neighbours. I had good friends but there was a side of me that I couldn't show the world. I was too sensitive, I felt everything.
As the years went by, I felt deeply that there must be something wrong with me. Why couldn't I be like all the other kids my age? I was born into a world that I didn't belong in.
Enter the void.... There were many things that contributed to my fifteen year battle with Anorexia, Major Depression, Anxiety & PTSD, too much to go into in this space. My quirks, my voice, my passions, my light was too much for the world. But more than that I also felt not good enough. Self-hatred ran through my bones, and I 100% believed that if I stripped all the weight off me then I could get in there a fix the problem.
A girls private school was the perfect breeding ground for my disorder to thrive. I wanted to dissapear. And disappear I did. With over 40 hospitalisations and more than halving my already slim, athletic frame, I literally was a shadow of myself... Anorexia was a slow painful suicide- I wanted to depart a world that made no sense to me.
Being the age I was, my parents got me the help they thought I needed. In many ways hospital quite possibly saved my life, but in other ways it caused more damage than one could imagine. When the very people who are meant to be helping you turn out to be not who they say they were, you have a choice.... go down with them, or rise.
I chose to rise.
When mainstream system failed me, I began to research and immerse myself in the world of holistic health and explore alternative ways to recover. I was beginning to wake up. I was remembering all the lost and fragmented parts of myself and starting to put the pieces back together.
I stayed connected to my support system from the hospital but eventually it was time to forge my own path and leave the revolving door once and for all.
Through returning home to myself, I found I had all the wisdom and resources within me that I needed to heal my life. The realisation that my perceived weaknesses could actually be my strengths amd greatest assets was the paradigm shift that set me on my true recovery path. Knowing that there was actually nothing wrong with me and that I was raised in a profilindly sick society, changed everything for me. With my fierce determination and will-power channeled in a positive direction, I literally could shift my own story and inspire and guide other women to do the same. And this has become my life's work... my souls calling, or what you all know of as my Sacred Soul Print.
Since I was a little girl I have had a fascination with nature and would spend lots of time outside at our first family house that was surrounded by bush. Today I am rooted back in with a passion for plant medicine and natures elements. Today I share my love of nature through spending lots of time outdoors and as a doTERRA Wellness Advocate.
I am pretty much obsessed with all things neuroscience, mindset, emotional embodiment, energy healing and goddesses. Alongside all of this, I am an avid writer, painter and cat lover. You can check out some of my art work here. My online store is coming soon where you will be able to purchase prints, or originals. I also do commissions.
Everything that I teach is something I have been through in my own life. For without having walked the path of my own awakening and soul retrieval, I am not able to authentically guide others.
I have always been a deep, abstract thinker and derive deeper meanings beyond surface appearance. I love to write and had journals filled to the brim with poetry and random musings on life and the universe.
During my periods of wellness, I had a beautiful career as a Childcare Educator. I dreamed of opening my own centre one day and also building a holistic treatment facility for Eating Disorders.Part of my healing was reconnecting with, and remembering my childhood dreams, passions and gifts.
Finding the gold in the mire took some time, but once I tuned into the deeper lessons and tapped into my soul, I discovered that I had all I needed within me to heal and turn my life around and rebuild a foundation that sustains me from the ground up. From lost & broken, I reconnected with myself & understood that my difficult life path was serving as a beautiful initiation into the nature of the work I do today. Now my sensitivity is my strength, my superpower and my gift to the world, alongside my passion for holistic health and wellness and serving and helping others.
In 2008 at the age of 21, my beloved Dad lost his battle with an aggressive cancer that raged his mind and body. Losing a parent so young is not something I ever could have imagined to have occurred in my life. I fell back into a deep depression and was convinced that it should have been me that died, not my Dad. Back in to treatment for the next few years, I had to dig really deep, to find a reason to live. By now the focus of my healing had shifted from the Eating Disorder to the underlying stuff and now we were really making head way. Because lets be honest, Eating Disorders are never about food and weight, they are a clever way of protecting the sufferer from their true pain. And so began the unravelling of my childhood trauma. My physical and emotional abandonment issues, my assaults, my reason for needing to control everything in my life, my depression, my anxiety, my chronic fatigue, my trust issues, my fear of men, my sexuality. All of it.
What I did not know at the time was this: My dark nights of the soul, were trying to wake me up. I soon realised that no one could save me but myself, and that in order to heal my life, I needed to trust the part of me that knew what I needed to recover. From a space of brokenness, I reconnected with my inner-child and retrieved the lost parts of myself including my passion for life, for helping people, my creativity, my sensitivity and my deep desire to thrive. I feel that I am only beginning to touch the surface of what is in this wild and expansive heart of mine. Eventually I learned to trust my intuition, I embarked on a more holistic approach to healing. When I let go and forgave myself for the path I had been down, a whole new world opened up to me.
As each year goes by without Dad here, I continue to feel a hole in my heart, but the more I open myself to spirit, the more he reveals himself to me. I feel his presence almost everywhere. He sends little signs from up above guiding me and encouraging me on my path. Today our connection is so strong- even stronger than when he were alive. I promised my beloved Dad that I would not die with my dreams still inside of me. That I would embrace all of that which I am here for. I am grateful for his entrepreneurial spirit and drive, for instilling in me core values and a holistic view on life. Life has changed a lot since that time of great loss and I feel so much love and gratitude to be where I am today. To have found home within myself and also in Melbourne.
In honour of Dad's memory, I chose to get really brave with my life. This manifested as an unexpected move from Sydney, to Melbourne. A move which made absolutely no logical sense but I knew I just had to do. Whilst I was scared, the move felt exciting, liberating, freeing.
Today I live with my soul-mate Eugene and together we are building our dream life. My life is filled to the brim with purpose and love and it is such an honour and a privilege to work with awakening women who are ready to align with their Sacred Soul-Print.
