Silence is my music,
Nature my medicine,
Life my teacher, and
Family, my anchor
I am a personal, parent and child coach, recovering perfectionist, seeking a quiet, simple, slow life where connection, meaning, and mindfulness intersect.
I am so glad you are here!
As a Mum, Step-Mum, wife, and previous employee that moved into the self-employed space, I have experienced, and continue to experience, the multitude of highs and lows life has to offer. For as long as I can recall, going back to chats with my Mum, I have pondered the meaning of life.
This has presented me with so many incredible opportunities to learn and study, apply and adjust, flounder and fail, and almost give up but instead … persist. I am fascinated with understanding the workings of my mind and how I can use it as a tool to overcome challenges, make my life worth living and make a meaningful contribution, by sharing with others.
My approach to my work has been influenced by many incredible minds, most notably by Viktor Frankl and Edith Eger. It was when I studied their work that I truly started to grapple with meaning on a practical level. As a student of Logotherapy, I learned that Frankl highlights three avenues to finding meaning: through our actions and contributions, through loving and appreciating, and through our attitude to unavoidable suffering. Regardless of which avenue we pursue, meaning is there to be fulfilled, and fulfilling it, is up to us.
Both Frankl and Eger assert, albeit in their own way, that it isn’t what happens to us that matters, as much as what we make it mean. Instead of asking why me, we ask, what now? We all have the power to choose, regardless of how difficult current situations can feel.
This perspective is refreshing and liberating and we can weave it powerfully into every aspect of our lives – personally and professionally.
I have done this by creating the Connection Model – a culmination of my own ‘self’ work, what I have learned through my various studies, as well as all that my clients have taught me. If we work together, you will surely become familiar with this life-enhancing approach.
I do hope we meet!
The Quiet Revolution ~ subscribing to a gentler life
I dream of creating a Quiet Revolution that is reflective of our interconnectedness and the profound sacredness of all life.
I dream of creating a movement and leaving a legacy.
I dream of working with a team of like-minded people who care deeply for themselves and this work, and who find meaning in sharing it with others.
I dream that they will bring their unique selves and most enlightened ideas and that we continuously improve on the magic we bring to the Quiet Revolution.
I dream of increasing the joy and harmony in the world by giving people an alternative way of connecting to and thinking about themselves, others, and Mother Earth.
I dream of lighting a pathway toward emotional and mental wellness on our collective journey toward a Quiet Revolution.
