Blending these supportive, transformative technologies help fast track awareness, growth and expansion so you can step into alignment, be your authentic self and the empowered leader you came here to be.
As a Coach and Healer I support my clients to heal and release past wounds, accept and integrate their shadows, find emotional/mental/spiritual balance, overcome old programming, subconscious blocks and patterns that no longer serve them, empowering them to rewrite their scripts and become the authors of their lives.Certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher, I completed my 200HR YTT Teacher Training at Kundalini University**.
Kundalini Yoga is also known as the Yoga of Awareness. It is a practice designed to give you the tools you need to raise your awareness or your Kundalini energy, in a contained and controlled way. Kundalini energy is incredibly powerful and in Kundalini Yoga we learn to harness this energy in a way that serves us.It is my mission to help you remember your gifts, reclaim your magic and reveal the master or mistress within.
Over the years I have learnt to embrace my introvert, empathic and highly sensitive nature - I am a 6/2 Profile, and Gene Key 59. (If you're interested in Human Design, I offer readings!) Whist I love meeting new people and engaging in meaningful conversations - I don't do small talk well! Large groups situations can leave me feeling drained, so I've learnt when to tap into the hermit wisdom within (6/2 profile!) who knows when it's time to step back and recharge.
My daily Sadhana (practice) includes Kundalini Yoga, breathwork or meditation, self healing, a woodland walk and quiet time preparing and drinking Ceremonial Grade Cacao. Not all at the same time! I've never been one to have a routine at a specific time of day, that's just not how my body and energy works, instead I prefer to sprinkle these practices throughout my day.
I am a passionate off-road runner (although I am having a break due to a minor injuiry), I'm a coach for my daughter's U14 football (soccer) team, which keeps me grounded. I firmly believe that women's football is in need of divine feminine energy!
Prior to setting up my Spiritual Coaching Practice, I gained my BA (HONS) in Communications & Psychology. After graduating I travelled our beautiful planet for 18 months before my conditioning of I 'ought to
' get a real job kicked in!
Running my own business was something I had always dreamed of, I was enticed by the shiny world of advertising in my early twenties, and it seemed like a good use of my degree! Although Spiritual Coaching was not in my awareness until recent years, I had began my Spiritual journey in my early childhood until I became separated from it in my 20's.
As a child I was curious about my grandmother psychic gifts and fascinated by her Turkish coffee readings. I used to sing to my 'home star', and I had a very active imagination! As a teenager I taught myself to read Tarot and Astrology and enjoyed doing readings for my friends right up until I finished university.
In my early 20's, after travelling for 18 months, I felt my conditioning kick in to get a 'proper' job. It was around this point I began to hide my Spiritual side. After years of never feeling like I fit in, I thought it was time to conform, so I packed away my Tarot cards and astrology books into my Spiritual closet for the next 20 years.
I spent the next two decades working in Global Digital Media Planning developing integrated Digital and Offline strategies for Fortune 100 companies: HTC, Vodafone, Sony CE, PlayStation, Hewlett Packard Inc and Apple Inc,
As an Executive Director I led many multi-million dollar Forbes 100 Global Clients and large teams. I understand Senior Clients's business needs, how to effectively build teams, nurture and develop them through training, appraisals, mentorship and coaching. I also understand collective success, the power of diversity and how to empower people to work productively, collaboratively and build trusting relationships. Having worked on a Global scale I know what it means to be empathic to every person, no matter what their role and no matter where they are, by encouraging and inspiring them to align to a common outcome.
On paper I was 'successful' but I was completely out of alignment and I had forgotten what it meant to live a life in flow. The separation from my Spiritual and Soul connection was beginning to show up in many ways in my life - my non-existent work/life balance, smartphone addiction, people pleasing tendencies, I felt that success could only be earned by 'hard work', my victim/blame mindset became my default programming, I suffered from huge mummy guilt and sought comfort in food and wine. I was unhappy, exhausted, stressed and anxious. My mind, body and soul were out of alignment. Deep within I knew it was because I wasn't living my soul's purpose - I kept ignoring the whispers, until they became loud knocks and manifested as physical illness or dis-ease.
Finally, I woke up.
Burn-out is a very common medical condition, especially amongst women in the corporate world. The corporate world, although slowly changing, honours toxic masculine energies. This toxic masculine energy shows up as 'busy', always rushing and 'can't stop' type of way. Masculine and Feminine energies are not about gender - they are energies and we are in continuous flow or dance between both masculine and feminine, the yin and yang. Unfortunately the feminine energies have been undermined in Western society, to our detriment. When we are consistently operating on toxic masculine energy, I believe it causes burnout, for women as well as for men.
I know what it is like to suffer from anxiety, depression, stress and burnout, to not listen to your body, to push through and ignore the whispers of your soul when it is screaming at you to pay attention and showing you signs that something is out of alignment. For me I had to face illness but it doesn't have to be this way.
We have to unlearn our old programmes and relearn to trust in ourselves - our inner guidance, inner GPS, guides or angels, the universe, your intuition - whatever name you give it. We have lost connection with ourselves. We have to go deep within, face our shadows, accept, embrace, transmute and integrate. We are ALL
capable of making changes and creating shifts, when we take a moment to slow down, be still, get out of our heads and back into our bodies and tune into our inner wisdom and hearts.
By taking purposeful and aligned action, these small, powerful shifts, can have a huge lasting impact in our lives.
