Hello! Thank you for connecting with me. I'd love to share a bit of my story with you, because in mine, there is a part of yours and vice versa.
I discovered the healing arts when I started practising the form of painting and making art. I commenced a Fine Art Degree in painting the young age of 17. As a seeker of truth and a critical thinker at a young age, art for me was a way to make comment and sense of both society and my inner world. It was also my one and only way to access "no mind", my first experience of mindfulness.
In time after the "right of passage" UK working holiday, and with new influences in my life, I let go of my art practice as it gave way to the curiosity of my fullest gifts. I heard the beat of the economic drum, it was calling me, I knew also in that urban jungle I could explore my voice and talents and explore the breadth of who I was. I spent over a decade in the corporate world of design and advertising, and learnt so much about myself and the system, until a voice within started to yelling...it was time for adventure. With a youthful craving to see life from all aspects, and a commitment to live a life without regrets, I took a detour. A detour to India, and into the heart of yoga.
Upon my return back to Australia, I was blessed with the surprise life changing arrival of my first child and not long after my second. One of my greatest hearts desires to be a mother was fulfilled. Those two my greatest teachers. Ensued within the process was a challenging relationship dynamic that gave way to my further exploration into the valuable study of healing practices including kinesiology, but most profoundly through Medical Intuitive, I discovered more about myself and the nature of life than I had ever before. The profound wisdom held in the Medical Intuitive modality has allowed me to dive deep into the ocean of ancient wisdom we all hold. Soulcode has evolved to combine and celebrate these lessons, experiences, practices and collective wisdom. To finding peace. To finding grace and strength.
My journey has not been the straight path (and really there is no such thing), nor the easy ride in any way. Not born into privilege, equally not engulfed by the victimhood of what could have been, there is one thing I have learned about myself and of human spirit. That is resilience and choice. We each have a choice about how we craft our lives, how we listen to the lessons so we can become the happiest and most fulfilled versions of ourselves. It's my passion to help you to transcend doubts and fear, to lead you into the space of your own truth.
You'll know it's the right time to work with me. You want to feel into a life that is joyful, easier and to be in your flow. You may have been feeling like something is out of alignment, maybe you're stuck in a cycle of procrastination, or the inner whispering telling you things are not the way you'd like them to be has steadily formed into a strong calling, it may have even manifested in an imbalance in your body or state of health. It may be that you're feeling out of balance in your life and seeking ways to find some space and time.
Any of this sound familiar?
- You feel like you are in a rut
- You have a feeling or sense of being trapped and lack freedom
- Procrastination is your main game
- You've disconnected from your body and frankly, don't like it very much
- The dream career you hoped for is more of a nightmare
- Your business won't get out of 1st gear
- Mr or Mrs right is turning out to be all wrong
- The kids are driving you cray cray
- You know there is more to life
- Passion and true love are feel life lofty ideals
- You seem to constantly sick or injured
- Your circle of friends just don't get you
- Life just isn't feeling "right"......
Whatever it is that has bought you to investigate, the thing you know for sure is you are ready to do what it takes to be guided into a life that is in alignment with your authentic self and path, and into an experience of optimal health and wellness.
My Lineage & Education
When you work with me in whatever form you are drawn to, you get access my years of training and studies. Mainlined straight to you.
I have followed my heart and souls desires whenever they've called me to do so, and I've backed it up with some serious investment in my formal (and informal) education. From all that I have learned I am so keen to share, and help you gain the benefit of my experience and pick out the best bits of what I've learned. Here's the kind of thing I've been up to over the past 40 years or so....give or take some school of life lessons.
