workshops & events
I am an experienced Secondary teacher, also having 2 years experience in a leadership role teaching Positive Psychology at a tough Western Sydney High School. More recently I have become a qualified Yoga teacher and Holistic Health Coach. My teaching career has highlighted the the importance of supporting students to build resilience and their capacity to develop a growth mindset, so that their experience of high school is maximised and sets them up for their best life outside of school. I see school as an intervention site for issues like stress and mental health challenges.
Building our students’ capacity to become self regulating and emotionally intelligent young adults is paramount. I fundamentally believe that our youth need help navigating the inner workings of their minds, habits and beliefs about themselves so that they can approach their education and life with mindfulness and awareness. This support will help to cultivate sustainable living habits and self empowerment. I believe that a holistic approach to education is the key to cultivating optimal health and wellness in our youth, so that they become lifelong learners, self-study through reflection and become functioning global citizens that our 21st Century world needs.
This said, I offer my expertise and practical strategies in stress management, mindfulness, health and wellness tips for a sharper mind, improved self-concept and positive relationships. I have outlined two available options:

FIND YOUR ZEN- 18 SESSION PACKAGE
In this package we dive DEEPER again. Perhaps things have been going south for a while now & you feel like more time to really delve into the nitty gritty of your habits & beliefs is the right thing for you now.
Maybe you are feeling that your work life balance doesn't even exist. In fact work is unsustainable! You feel overwhelmed and anxious most of the time. You are fatigued and running on empty. You are mentally & emotionally exhausted, which then impacts your mental health. Don't forget about the brain fog on top of that. You have lost all connection to your mind body & spirit. As well as your loved ones.
You try to eat well but have limited nutritional knowledge. Which then leads to self-loathing. On top of this the chronic stress is weakening your immune system, causing inflammation & toxicity in your body and you start to or have developed an autoimmune disease. I know these feels all too well!
What would life look & feel like if :
Stress didn't rule your life
You had vitality and bountiful energy
Deep, honest and vulnerable connection to yourself & others
A thriving mind that was strong and resilient
A state of calm like the Dalai Lama
Can you picture it??? I can and it is magic!
Always focusing on my 3 principles of health & wellness: MIND, BODY & CONNECTION I support you through a lifestyle overhaul.

Spirituality & Rituals
Detox - Minimalism continued
Conscious life - Eco friendly life
As well as other topics or pain points that feel more relevant to you and your circumstances. This is about you and your unique bio-individuality.
I'll guide you and help to keep you accountable to make the changes that you desire. In this 18 one-on-one session program over 4 1/2 months, we'll take a DEEP dive into your life.
