Hello and welcome,

Firstly you must know I’m a tea lover. Preferably with spelt date scones. 

Writing is my thing.  It fuels my soul with the good stuff. Give me a journal and pen and I’m happy.

I feel at home in a bookstore. Always have. 

I believe kindness is always the way forward. Walking is medicine. The breath is profoundly healing.

My biggest achievement, by far, is raising my 3 sons.  Youngest being 21.  I recently entered empty nest.  No one tells you how difficult it is.  I struggled. Probably still am, if I’m honest.

On the work side, I offer Gentle Therapy sessions.  I holistically support women feel some stillness and peace.

I’m trained in counselling, psychological first aid, meditation, deep rest restorative yoga, therapeutic breathing and many energetic and vibrational healing modalities.  Private sessions via skype are available.  Can’t quite believe, I’ve also been teaching classes and workshops for over 20 years. 

I’ve been facilitating Slow Rest retreats since 2006.  France, England, Italy, Bali and Australia. They are crafted especially for woman. Uniquely small for personal support and the practice of deep rest is at the very heart of these retreats.

I was born in Melbourne, Australia.  However I’ve been happily nomadic for the past few years by choice, living out of a suitcase. Getting back to basics and discovering whats really important in life. Asking the beautiful questions as Poet David Whyte would say.

I think of it, as preparation for the next chapter of my life.

I lean towards Ayurvedic lifestyle. Warm food and warm drinks suit my body and mind.  Also love the wisdom of Chinese medicine. Especially acupuncture and herbs.

My blog posts and weekly rituals are all about helping you to be your own medicine, one pause, one breath and one healing ritual a time.  

Thank you for reading all the way down to here. Bless.

Who knows we may get to meet one day.

Flow gently.
