Get to Know Me
What really ignites my soul is using my knowledge to support others along their healing journey. Everyone deserves to know the strengths that they possess and be able to adopt self-love and compassion. You are the expert of your own life; my role is to simply give you the resources required to weather the storm.
How I know how to do this is because I’ve had to navigate the storm myself. When I was a child I experienced sexual abuse and emotional neglect. As a teenager, our family unit broke down and further psychological abuse occurred. For years, I struggled to be a fully functioning human being. I went from a straight A student to a high school dropout. I could not make sense of the tumultuous emotions inside of me, so instead I harmed myself and withdrew from everyone. I felt isolated, hopeless and wholeheartedly believed I would not amount to anything.
My healing journey has not been straightforward. Initially, each time I experienced another period of being unwell with my mental health, I would beat myself up for “relapsing”. I always had viewed being recovered as the absence of illness. However, what I know now is that recovery is not simply an end point where mental illness and trauma responses no longer exist. It is the acquisition of coping skills, completely accepting myself exactly as I am and believing I can conquer any challenge that arises.
Today, I am a university graduate with an honours degree in Psychology, a mental health coach, a trauma healer who uses a holistic perspective, an amateur surfer, a lover of nature and globetrotter always looking forward to another adventure. Where I am now is light years from where I started on my healing journey. If you are willing to show up and do the work, you can absolutely reach the place of being at peace with your mind and finding your authentic self.
Take the chance, get the guidance you need and watch yourself completely evolve. I’m excited to support your journey!
