Hi and welcome to the College of Conscious Living!
I am so honored to be able to provide holistic services and a professional education to help you and others like you, in a quest for better health and well being. These services are designed to support you in creating your own holistic business and to provide an education within the creative arts.
Healing, as we know, is different for everyone!
For some its a gentle and straight forward process and for others it can be a complicated and challenging journey. Even the healing modalities required to benefit ones health, can differ greatly from person to person.
I successfully graduated from the diploma of HICAT in 2019, and went on to teach the diploma ever since. The education not only inspired me in my own holistic & clinical practice but provided a huge healing journey of my own.
As a qualified Naturopath, educator and holistic therapist, I have 20 years of hands on experience living and breathing a holistic and creative life style. I specialize in female health, lifestyle coaching and teaching the diploma of holistic integrative creative arts therapy (HICAT) course.
In my early 20’s I pursued an interest in nursing. I quickly came to see that wasn’t for me and I knew I wanted to be in a holistic environment to help people improve their mental, physical and spiritual well being.
After this experience, my journey took me into a life of natural therapies and medicine. I became a qualified and successful Naturopath, energetic healer, massage therapist and meditation & holistic lifestyle coach.
I have worked with families, children and communities in healing emotional issues, encouraging self expression and educating individuals on self care.
I love teaching this diploma as I am a huge advocate of its benefits and am passionate about assisting others in discovering their own truths; feeling more at peace with who they are.
