My highest value in life - to live the most fulfilling life possible!
Since early childhood, where I would wake myself up at 3.30am each morning to be at the pool for training sessions, I have followed my inner voice to live my dream! My life revolved around swimming, with most weekends dedicated to competition - I visualised myself as ‘The Swimmer’. Despite my dedication, I fell short of my goal.
Not sure what to do with my life post-swimming, I travelled the world pursuing my second love: photography. Learning about life and the people that make this world an extraordinary place, I experienced how some of the most remote communities lived a remarkably happy, healthy life based on traditional ways. Gradually, my discipline to be the best athlete transformed into a passion for a balanced life of healthy living in harmony with our Earth and soon enough I was exploring the physical and emotional healing properties of traditional medicines: herbs, flower essences and essential oils.
From these natural remedies I discovered a magic in life that has never been surpassed. And these same natural remedies helped me to heal from a devastating end to an extremely destructive relationship of 6 years. I had compromised my truth, in the name of ‘love’, to the extent that I was a shadow of my former self – both emotionally and physically. I would never have believed that I would become ‘that woman in that relationship’ ... until it was me. However the darkest experiences can be the greatest teachers and, eventually, I was able feel gratitude for the painful lessons and betrayals that shaped me into the woman of strength I am today.
As a wellbeing consultant, these are the experiences that have helped me to help others. After volunteering my time in Latin America, I studied natural medicine in Australia and with Homeopathic doctors in India. I love watching the flower essences and essential oils work so gently and effectively alongside herbal formulations and homeopathic remedies, helping people to transform and heal at all levels of being – body, mind and soul. May they do the same for you!
