"Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage" - Brene Brown
I believe in a holistic and integrative approach to mental health and well-being.
Through my own journey of healing and self discovery I realised that there is not one size fits all approach. We need to integrate the mind, body & spirit.
My own journey is an ever unfolding process of learning, unlearning, letting go and gaining new perspectives. Like a lot of healers, I have had my fair share of life to work through, my own struggles, my own skeletons. I am a firm believer that we can only go as deep with our clients as we are willing to go with ourselves, and so, it is in service to myself, and to my clients, that I continue to delve deeper on my own healing path.
I do not think we are ever "healed", I think that would mean we had stopped really living in this reality. That is not my aim for myself, nor my clients. My aim is to help my clients find the tools that help them, the ones that give them strength and grounding and help them to really get to know themselves; to help them uncover the things that keep them stuck, repeating the unconscious traps that drive them in their day to day without them even realising.
I am so grateful to the people who have held my hand at different points as I walked and continue to walk through this life.
I trust that the people who are meant to find me will, and I look forward to working with every single one of them.
