Why you? Because you really matter, and because it's your birthright to be happy. It's as simple as that.
I'm sure you lead a busy life. It's likely that you have been conditioned since childhood to cope with pressure, accept increasing responsibility and constantly raise your game ... regardless of your upbringing, your background or your spiritual views.
But however you spend your days, you may often find that you put others' needs before your own, or fall into blame, anger or judgment. And at times that's unbearable, so you pretend, or numb out, or distract yourself ... with busyness, social media, work, drinking, eating, making endless lists, sex, shopping, recreational drugs, or whatever it takes to help you cope. In fact, anything but look at what might be going on underneath the surface!
Life throws up daily challenges, and although they may at times feel totally overwhelming and all-consuming, the underlying causes of the stress or worry really can be brought to light and released.
“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection" ~ Buddha
what I do
I will work with you to help you find the trust to explore and release beliefs and feelings which are blocking your joy and keeping you stuck in negative patterns. I will show you how to use the breath as a gateway, and within a safe space, we will work with forgiveness - a vital aspect of being able to come to a place of inner peace.
From my experience, the real roots of the challenges which show up in our daily lives are totally different from what we had imagined, and are almost always unconscious ... so despite our very best efforts, we slide back into the same involuntary thoughts and behavioural patterns, over and over again.
It's therefore crucial to allow that which is deeply hidden to rise into awareness, so it can be examined with curiosity, and the “stories” actively dismantled ... as believing the stories we tell ourselves is the ultimate cause of our suffering.
But no-one can do the work for us, and nothing in our lives will change until we are willing, open and ready to look at things differently ... and in doing so, take full responsibility for our own experience of life.
