Certification Candidate with the Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC)
Hello! Thanks for joining me here.
I am so excited and grateful that you have landed upon my site. I really appreciate your time and curiosity in reading this!
I have always been a 'people person' and seemed to be the person who people turned to for help, during my corporate career. For about 14 years I worked within the financial services industry, managing teams and dealing with all kinds of conflicts.
After taking a year off to go travelling around the world, I realised that I was craving something more soul-fulfilling as a career. So I began studying Kinesiology, an energy based healing modality which is kind of like a blend between acupuncture and counselling.
I loved this and began my own practice, soon finding my own niche and way of working, conducting over 2,500 sessions over 6 years.
I am naturally very intuitive so I have found that I can get to the core of an issue that someone is experiencing, very quickly. As a natural healer, I have witnessed changes and responses in people that I can't explain. Have I got scientific proof of this? No - but the results and positive testimonials speak for themselves!
In my relationships I experienced a number of romantic relationships that were challenging. I wasn't receiving the respect that I needed and my trust was often broken. This led me to eventually discover a process called 'Nonviolent Communication', also known as 'Compassionate Communication', which was life-changing for me!!
The process allowed me to understand more about why I was lacking boundaries, why I struggled to speak up for myself and why I was having difficulties in my relationships. And more importantly, HOW to change these things!!
I was so in love with this process that in 2019 I studied it in depth in Bali for 9 days, aswell as aligning with a mentor in the process.
I experienced a number of personal losses of loved ones in 2020, which took me some time to process and grieve. I also witnessed the sharp increase in the number of people suffering from social isolation, loneliness, anxiety and depression.
I felt called to do more to tackle this issue and begun exploring ways to do so. Most notably in running fortnightly Empathy Groups and running weekend workshops on Compassionate Communication.
More recently, I have been called to work with teens and young adults on the autism spectrum. I am qualified to teach social skills from an evidence-based program known as "PEERS®", developed at the University of California. This project brings me so much joy and I can't wait to bring this into the world!
I also can't wait to learn what neuro-diverse folk have to teach the neuro-typical because I believe they are highly evolved souls.
In my personal time, I love to take care of my plants, do yoga, eat vegan burgers and chips, have deep conversations with like-minded souls, hang out with my two kitties Coco and Olly, doggie Duke and my partner Evagelos and head to the beach as much as possible!
