Hi and welcome to the College of Conscious Living!
I am so honoured to be able to provide holistic services and professional courses to help you and others like you, in a quest for better health and well being. These educational programs are designed to support you in creating your own holistic business and to provide an education within the creative arts.
I have been successfully practising as a holistic creative arts therapist, meditation teacher naturopath and counsellor for almost 20 years combined.
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 have worked with families, children and communities in healing emotional issues, encouraging self expression and educating individuals on self care.
I have always been a creative soul discovering many useful techniques for trauma awareness and release, stress management and just creating for the sake of creative expression!
I love teaching these courses as I am a huge advocate of the benefits each program offers, and am passionate about assisting others in discovering their own truths; feeling more at peace with who they are.

Our online assessor, Jenny, completed her HICAT practitioner training in January 2021 and has since moved on to support the students and Sanja with the HICAT education.
Jenny is very passionate about HICAT and the many benefits it has to offer. HICAT has captured her heart and allowed her creativity to shine through. Her favourite HICAT modality is intuitive art and authentic movement.
Not only did HICAT give Jenny her freedom of expression, but it also allowed her to truly step into her personal power, overcome long term depression and anxiety and give voice to her authentic self.
Jenny loves teaching the course, sharing her knowledge, insights and learnings. She is committed to guiding others through their healing journey.
Jenny is a mum of two beautiful girls and is happily married. In her spare time, she enjoys connecting with nature, spending time with her family, reading, dancing, learning and expanding her consciousness.
Since completing her course, she has designed, created and facilitated an 8-week children’s holistic workshop and intends to facilitate a variety of ongoing workshops in the future. She has big dreams, big goals and big ideas, and is an advocate for self-healing and personal development.

She is a dedicated and avid learner, having over come her own learning difficulties and symptoms of mild depression and anxiety. Since completing the course she has flourished in her knowledge of stress & the nervous system, belief systems & how they impact us and the importance of looking after ourselves spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
Eliza has always felt creative and loved to express herself in her earlier years through fashion and fashion design. She would have a vision and bring it to life through pattern making, incredible fabric selection and being a whiz on the sewing machine.
Life continued her journey of creativity when she got married and had her 3 beautiful boys. Eliza describes it as a spiritual creation, one that she cherishes highly. As a proud homemaker, she moved into being a self proclaimed interior designer and creates home spaces for herself, family and friends.
