I was raised on the beautiful sunshine coast in Australia and had an ideal childhood between farm life and the beach. I come from an extremely large family (I have more than 200 cousins!) and I was a very quiet observant kid so I learnt early to watch and take in people's behaviour and I always had a fascination with people and why they behaved the way they did. I was the master diplomat in my family always keeping the peace and finding ways to help others feel better.
What nobody knew though - is that I was always very anxious, always scared of speaking up and was your ultimate perfectionist/A type personality. Because I got good grades and won awards and excelled at practically everything I did - no body realised how incredibly anxious I was.
I was raised on organic foods and my mother is a kinesiologist and healer who had me reading personal development books and listening to Eckhart Tole when I was 12. So 'alternative' medicine and ways of thinking was normal to me.
When I hit my late teens I went completely off the rails and by 23 I had a breakdown. Although I worked extremely hard, earned great money and was very well respected in my roles - I was hiding a deep hatred for myself and crippling anxiety that had me sabotaging everything good in my life.
After this breakdown I went on an obsessive mission to get to the source of the issue - naturally and using a combination of tools with intensive study and self practice - I healed myself in record time. I not only healed I re created my life and have never looked back. But that journey was long, lonely ad confusing and I couldn't understand why the most profound knowledge for self healing and transformation wasn't available to everybody!
I believe the breakdown was the best thing that ever happened to me and I believe my life purpose is to be here with you - sharing the profound knowledge for becoming the greatest version of you. For 2 decades I have dedicated my life to mental health, personal transformation and helping others realise how the body and the mind work in order to heal themselves rapidly.
Actually what I teach about the body, mind and soulful living is somewhat simple - it's just not common knowledge. So I decided to make it common knowledge.
In 2009 I birthed one of the world's first all natural healing centres for tough mental health issues. In the same year I became a mother to my beautiful child Winta - who was born with an intellectual disability. So to say I have had my own share of troubles and struggles and pain is an understatement. I've burnt out a few times, crashed a few times but I never give up and I believe that every lesson offers a beautiful benefit.
I have been privileged to work 1:1 with hundreds of people who take my tools and transform their lives and also to work alongside and train with some of the greatest therapists, coaches and personal growth mentors on the planet and I've travelled and lived all over the world doing it. Now I have the pleasure of working here online with you to share the same tools. You can do my online program, do a retreat at home or work with me 1:1 for rapid results.

I always had a passion and skill for building businesses though my real passion was people. As a business consultant in my early years I soon decided that the business was not the issue - that the health, relationships and personal issues of the business owner was the real issue. So my personal coaching career began there.
By 2009 with a tonne of study under my belt it was time to step full force into the mental health space. I have more than 10k hours coaching experience and have vast experience working with individuals, groups, organisations and high performing elite.
Because I believe in holistic therapy - I have an ability to see what is in the way of what you want from every angle. For this reason I get powerful results and give you answers and a fast tracked unique approach to transformation.
WHAT EXACTLY DO WE TRANSFORM TOGETHER?
'I haven't had a panic attack in weeks. I'm probably the happiest and most relaxed I've ever been!
This is one of the best things I've ever done and so life changing,
my whole family are blown away. Your words have opened my mind up to so much.
Wow. Thank you.'

ABOUT MY THERAPY & COACHING STYLE
360 DEGREE HOLISTIC LIFE ASSESSMENT
I look at your life from every angle and do a complete check of:
HEALTH & DIET
HABITS & LIFESTYLE
STRESS & REST
MENTAL HEALTH & MIND
SELF IMAGE & CONFIDENCE
PURPOSE & DIRECTION
Then we create a unique plan to use holistic tools to transform what's in the way of the vision we set for your life.
Tools Not Talk
TALKING IS HELPFUL BUT
TOOLS ARE POWERFUL
My job is to ensure that after a few months - you don't need me anymore. I teach you what I know so that you step into empowerment. The more we rehash stories and pain - the less empowered we feel. We do talk but the more you discover about yourself, what's really in the way and what to do when you need it the most, the more inner strength you will build. I am a straight shooter and with a lot of compassion will have you stepping into your power fast using daily tools, step by step, to transform each life area.
CREATE THE ULTIMATE LIFE YOU WILL LOVE
Create a whole new life direction, step into your own purpose and power and have the life and relationships you want in record time with full support.
I'll keep you accountability and drive you to be the best you can be everyday.
Your plan includes taking action on the goals we set every week.
And this is how self confidence and empowerment and healing is really done - in the doing in the present not looking backwards.
