Hello and welcome,

I am a mother of 3 sons.  Slow Living is my thing.

I am a counsellor and help people to relax and feel a little less stressed, tense and anxious on the inside.

I offer a unique fusion of therapeutic relaxation rituals, medicinal breath practices, ancient clearing and protection tools, guided releasing meditations and restorative yoga shapes.

For over 15 years I’ve been crafting Slow Rest retreats for woman around the world.

An oracle deck (or two), essential oils, a good book and my journal are never far from my side.

I was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1958. I am a mother of 3 grown boys. I happily raised them on my own. Being a mother is my greatest, greatest achievements in life. A huge privilege.  I still struggle with empty nest though. 

I’m a life learner. I formally trained in Restorative Yoga with Judith Lassater, have a Diploma of Counselling, Meditation with Dr. Ian Gawler  and became a therapist of many natural healing modalities over the past 30 years.  Including Australian Bush flower essences, Space Clearing, North American Indian shamanic practices, Huna (ancient culture of Hawaii), crystal therapy, reiki, space clearing and energy healing.  I continue to explore and learn about ancient ways, folklore remedies and earth medicine. 

I trust you find my blog helpful.  The blog posts are all about helping you be your own medicine one pause, one breath and one healing ritual a time. 

Thank you for reading this far. I value your time. Who knows I may get to  meet you one day at one of my slow rest retreats.

May the medicine in you Rise my friend, one pause, one breath and one healing ritual at a time.
