My Journey

The path that has lead me to do this work has definitely been a long and eventful one.

I want to acknowledge each and everyone of the beautiful souls who have contributed to my life in any way, shape or form. These people have been my greatest teachers and are all my biggest blessings.
A special acknowledgement goes to my parents, who’s love has always been so nurturing and unconditional, as well as to my daughter who is my strength, my mission, and my purpose, without her love I may not have made it this far.

My connection to Natural Medicine began when I was a young child, I am a very sensitive soul and like many of the people I work with, have always been prone to absorbing much of the toxicity in my immediate surroundings as well as in the collective field.

There was often tension and conflict in my home while growing up, and while I was not ever physically harmed, I felt this pain on a very deep level.

I became physically sick, vomiting and purging for days and weeks on end. I was hospitalised for this condition and I missed out on many weeks of schooling at a time.

When I was 8 years old, my Mother looked into Natural Medicine as an alternative to alleviate my condition, this worked well. With the use of a combination of homeopathic remedies, herbal tinctures and of course rescue remedy.

We went on to live an alternate lifestyle, our diet was free of dairy and yeast, and we ate as clean and wholesome as possible. It was an uncommon practice in those days, however, for this I am truely grateful.

 We moved interstate when I was 10 years old, into a very different social dynamic, and things became quite different. I started to feel anxiety and instability in my emotional health, however I had no idea why.

Instead of asking for assistance from my mum, I chose to bury it deep down into my body. I became numb and could no longer feel anything at all. In my teens, I took to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain, and began to suffer from a deep depression.

Again I just ‘pushed through’, thinking that this was normal life. 

At the age of 16 I dropped out of school and moved out of home, by age 17 I was pregnant withy daughter.

The pregnancy was with a person I didn’t know well at all, however having the child was the only option that felt right for me at the time. He turned out to be quite emotionally disturbed, and at the age of 18 I found myself in an abusing relationship with a newborn baby isolated from all family and friends.

My daughter gave me the strength and courage to leave the abuse, as by the time she was 15 months old, she was already showing signs of trauma and I couldn’t bare for her to witness it any longer.

Her father’s persistence to obtain control over me came to a resolution while he was imprisoned for the rage and abuse, we sold the family home and moved where he could not find us.

My daughter was free to grow up living a healthy and happy life, she had lots of love, family and friends. I was working and studying in childcare and we were both surrounded by family and loved ones.

When she reached the age of adolescence, her health status changed. I knew it was time for me to do the inner healing work and address all that I had suppressed during my adolescent years.

I studied psychology to learn more about the human mind, I was fascinated by the subconscious aspects, however these were not covered in great detail.

This lead to go deeper into the underlying unconsciousness, so I further studied Neurolinguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Transformational Coaching.

I became curious in Nature and the Medicine of Plants and Minerals, which took me down the path of studying Naturopathy. During my years of tertiary study, I also trained in Reiki I & II, Reflexology and Intuitive Massage, spending my years working in various allied clinic’s including acupuncture and chiropractic.

By the time I was 35 I had a great deal of knowledge, and no idea what to do with it all.

I attended business functions and networking seminars after opening my own clinic. However realising I had taken on too much too soon, I decided to let it all go. I was exhausted and burnt out from striving so hard for so long.

The next part of my journey took me into the working with the divine feminine, it was time to realise that the business – ‘busy-ness’ I was putting myself through was actually just a distraction from going deeper into my body.

I explored sacred feminine practices, spending many years going deeper into my womb wisdom, and connecting with the Earth. I travelled to parts of the world, attending retreats and visiting sacred sights. My life slowed right down and I allowed myself the time to heal.

The journeyed deepened as I experienced the loss of a loving relationship, this lead me down a very long path of grief and pain.

During this time I engaged in numerous healing sessions, modalities, meditations, deep inner processes and assistance from mentors and friends. I came face to face with the depth of my inner shadow realms.

I let go of co-dependancy, the need to please others for love and the illusion of separation.

This work is not for the faint of heart, however the liberation and freedom that awaits on the other side is worth every step of the way.

These days, I continue to work on myself everyday, I have learnt to embrace all that comes my way, as I know it is always here to show me a better flow of life.

I hope my story can inspire you on the path you’re on, to keep showing up each day no matter how hard it seems at the time, and never forget to reach out for help if you need it.

There is always someone there!
