Hey there lovely! Welcome to my page...
I offer counselling, workshops and professional training that invites authenticity and ignites deeper self-reflection, insight, growth and healing in those who are questioning their part in their relationship dynamics and who want to understand themselves, their loved one, partner or child, with more empathy and compassion in order to live an extraordinary life.
This work is potent, pioneering and life-changing as I weave together elements of mindful emotional expression and regulation, self compassion, body and breath awareness, journaling and creativity processes with information about trauma, neuroscience, attachment and relationship dynamics to take you and your relationships on a journey from surviving to thriving!

Do you ever wish the relationships in your life
were more loving, easy, meaningful and intimate?
Do you want to love and be loved
like the passionate woman you are?
YES!!! Of course you do…We all do!!
We are wired to LOVE, it is our birthright.
We are wired to Love Deeply, to both give and receive
and to be seen and known in all our glorious beauty
AND with all of our complexity, sensitivity and woundedness.
Life without this kind of love is just well…ho hum.
Firstly its tempting to blame others,
next we tend to blame ourselves.
Sadness, loneliness and a fear of not being
worthy of love can be at the root of feeling heart broken.
Emotions are harder to regulate and we can feel
we are on an endless emotional roller coaster.
Events can lack meaning and the future can feel scary.
Never has there been a time in history where it’s been so easy to connect. Social media allows us to talk to anyone, anytime, anywhere. You’d think our relationships would be thriving.
However, research shows loneliness is becoming an epidemic,
suicide is on the rise, divorce rates are sky rocketing and many parents are struggling as their roles continue to evolve and change as families take on new and unique shapes and structures.
It appears that instead of thriving, many of us are
just surviving in the world of relationship and love.
Secure Base, Safe Haven...
In our attempts to give and receive love,
things can go wrong, very wrong,
and we miss that which we most need…
To feel heard, validated, understood, respected,
prioritised and LOVED.
If only it was about having multiple ways to connect…
The truth is that when we learn to drop into our vulnerability and take the elevator down underneath all the pain and confusion and express what we really feel and need in love and when this can really be felt and received by the other, we create a container for more security, resilience, greater interdependence, deeper trust, playfulness and support.
We create a safe haven to lean into and a secure base
from which to explore the world independently.
We invite a more intimate way of connecting with those we love.
It’s actually very simple, and you don’t have to do it alone…

The information imparted and the tools and practices
in my programs are holistic and life changing.
I will empower you to make any necessary
behavioural changes, from the inside out.
We will explore any adaptations you've developed
that constrict what's possible in experiencing love.
This journey will help you uncover your attachment style,
where it came from and how it plays
out in your everyday relationships.
You will learn both the advantages and disadvantages
of your attachment style, and even that of your loved one.
You’ll learn to identify the attachment style of others
and what to look for and what to walk away from when dating
so as to serve what you uniquely need to experience love.
We will explore letting go of resentment
and find out what true forgiveness requires.
Everyone lives with an internal heart wound.
We will uncover this wound gently and compassionately
and discover the gifts it has to offer.
I will teach you how to come back
to an internal sense of emotional security.
Security is wired into us and even if we’ve never experienced it
in relationship before, we can certainly find and fertilize it now.

It's time…its time to make room
for the quality of love you seek,
the quality of love you deserve.
It’s time to let go
of protesting what you don’t want,
staying when it’s time to go
and putting other’s needs ahead of your own.
It’s time to let go
of fearful avoiding, dismissing and blocking
difficult emotional conversations.
It’s time to let go of blaming
and learn to lean into self-inquiry.
It’s time to let go
of guilt and shame and embrace self-compassion.
It’s time to set boundaries as an act of self-care.
It’s time to become curious about your patterns of relating
and be kind to yourself and others about theirs.
It’s time to look through a different lens to see the love that is actually already there.
It’s time to open your heart to a new way to love.
Sound scary? Hopeful? Curious to know more?
L e t ' s T a k e A B r e a t h . . . a h h h h h h h.
We will begin exactly where you are,
with whatever’s showing up for you in your life right now
and we will walk this path gently…together.
This journey is one of courage,
one that requires a whole hearted YES,
a deep commitment and a willingness to work
from the inside out…
and with me as your openhearted,
compassionate Guide to Thrive,
it’s entirely possible…
I promise you.
Whether you are a mother, a sister, a lover or a friend…
loving intimately is a gift
that just makes life a hell of a lot more worth living.
