“A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who has you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be.” – Tom Landry
I have journeyed far to this landscape of therapist and coach. A life purpose is not something we choose but rather something that chooses us.
In the years between studying Developmental Psychology in my 20s and Craniosacral Therapy in my 40s, I have worked in Investment Banking; Human Resources; Consulting; Grief Counselling; Social Development; Social Entrepreneurship; Mentoring; Writing … and more. I’m a multi-potentialite, having studied continuously for three decades whilst also navigating my inner landscapes as much as the outer dynamics of my soul environment.
Annie Dillard says you should be on nodding terms with some of the people you used to be but, for me, I can barely be on nodding terms with some of the people I am … so I kill them off like serial suicide. The death of a seed is the final death for that seed, but life emerges from each and every death … and from each and every seed … with appropriate dialogue with the universe. There are no endings, only beginnings, so if you want to have new birth, new revelation, new insight into life as you grow, you will have to learn to keep dying until you emerge exactly as the seed intended you to be.
I am a Truthworker, not a Lightworker, committed to taking you on a journey back to who you are rather than helping you transcend the need to take the trip. We are not human beings on a spiritual journey but spiritual beings on a human journey and this is not a solitary endeavour. It is my privilege to walk beside you on this section of your path.
Because of my fifty full years of life experience, studies, travel, career changes, trauma, healing, and more than the prescribed dose of ascendent self-development, I bring an accumulation of all that I have both become and un-become to each unique client-guided treatment experience.
Each lotus bloom has its roots in the mud.
Who I am is the person this pilgrimage has made of me … and although my purpose has found me, the journey towards it keeps spiralling and gathering in an ever-expanding process of increased awareness, shifting perspectives and changed realities. Sometimes lost, always exploring. My boots 🥾 are always ready.
I believe that to travel well is better than to arrive. How about you?
