On a journey to remember what my soul already knows
In 2012, at 39 years old, I was the strongest and healthiest I had ever been.
I was a mom to three gorgeous kids with a plan for a fourth - only for our family
to experience a traumatic event that triggered PTSD - post-traumatic stress
disorder for me.
What followed was a challenging journey as I grappled with the complexities
of mental and physical health. Despite my relentless pursuit of various methods
and seeking help from multiple practitioners, I found myself spiralling
downward, realising they lacked a comprehensive understanding of the
mind-body connection. Frustrated by the absence of holistic guidance, I
embarked on a personal quest to heal as a whole person, preventing future
illnesses and their effects stemming from chronic and traumatic stress.
But the challenges didn't stop there. Five years later, after achieving many of my physical health goals, including having another baby, even though I was told it would be almost impossible, my 14-year-old son was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition, and at the same time, I suffered a profound personal loss. This shattered my progress, pushing me to a new low.
Navigating this struggle, I unearthed the ever-evolving nature of my true identity. Society encourages us to constantly evolve into what's expected of us, to become what the world deems necessary for health, happiness, and success. However, to truly thrive, find joy, be healthy and attain success on our terms, I've realised the journey involves more unbecoming than becoming. This is only possible by discovering the true you. This process removes the resistance - the feelings of confusion, overwhelm and resistance - the 'hard.
These personal experiences have served as catalysts for my growth and inspired me to extend support to others on their health journeys. I deeply appreciate the interconnected nature of our well-being, considering factors such as heart health, mental well-being, body functionality, gut health, hormonal balance, and metabolic health. Recognising this intricate interplay, I believe in adopting a holistic perspective that tailors our approach to address individual health needs. Whether it's managing stress, achieving overall vitality, or pursuing optimal health, embracing this comprehensive view allows us to customize strategies that consider the synergy between our physical health, mental well-being, and various aspects of our vitality.
While I will never have all the answers, understanding the interconnectedness of our mind, body, and spirit, I guide myself and others through the complexities of our lives, mindsets, and bodies to help find the answers and the way that works for you. Together, we embark on a transformative journey that nurtures sustainable change and optimal health. I believe in crafting a new way of living that acknowledges your unique needs and empowers you to achieve lasting well-being on your terms.
This is not a fleeting, one-size-fits-all, quick-fix solution or program that promises miracles within a few weeks or months. Instead, your personally crafted journey equips you with the tools and puts you at the helm of navigating your health throughout life, fostering a healthy lifestyle and mindset that genuinely supports your overall well-being.
