Do you ever find yourself striving to control that which is not in your control? Joining in the cultural expectation to do more?Plagued by a sense of inadequacy? I have! So often we are thinking about something that has already happened, playing it out in our minds as though it could be different, wondering if we could have done or looked better, or leaning into the future, preparing apprehensively for what may come. We become so concerned with how others might perceive us that we dismiss the powerful guidance whispered in this moment by the quiet inner voice, in order to follow an external pressure to work harder or push through life in the name of "should's".
When faced with painful parts of our experience, we often treat our feelings as if we were trying to fix a piece of broken equipment and block out or simply misinterpret the messages (symptoms) that our bodies and emotions provide. We may even see our bodies themselves as "never good enough" and constantly strive to change our physical appearance or imagine ourselves differently in an attempt to increase our sense of "ok-ness". Perhaps we even judge the judger, frustrated with our perfectionism or misguided attempts to keep ourselves safe through trying to manage or preserve the image that we so identify with.
I believe that the answer to these ongoing, daily inner struggles to be "better", or to be somewhere other than where we are, can be found through a deeper conversation with ourselves. When we dissolve and discharge tension, we find more space to choose a fuller connection to our unconsious life. Practice allows us to honour the space of the heart and anchor what we find in the expansiveness of our being into our daily lives.
I am passionate about living into all aspects of my Self and inviting others to do the same. I work with individuals and couples to embody more joy and ease in their relationship to themselves and each other and encourage all to communicate with the world from this place of greater freedom and authenticity. I particularly enjoy working with women in the areas of sexuality, intimacy and dreams.
I look forward to supporting you in your life to feel more vibrant, calm and nourished.
