The thinking mind is what steers the ship, but it’s our Heart that holds the map.
I used to believe I could think my way through life. If I just learned enough, I’d be able to figure everything out, but then I realized just how much suppressed emotion I was actually holding within my body. This then forced me more in the direction of emotion and feeling, which has been mind-blowing (and humbling) to see just how little I actually “knew”, even though I “thought” I did.
Though we can’t deny the importance of our thinking mind as a tool, I believe we need a better balance between our head and heart, our thinking and feeling, in order to get a more holistic picture of what’s going on.
Finding Balance in Uncertain Times.
The world is changing, which means we also have to change with it and find new ways of understanding. But it’s also moving faster than ever, which doesn’t allow us to slow down, to soften and relax our nervous systems so that we’re able to truly ground and find balance. My goal is to try to create an environment of calmness for you to explore your Self in. The importance of having a safe, supportive space cannot be overstated, so that you can feel comfortable enough to come back to your body. Slowly, and gently. Survival mode isn’t conducive to healing, so let’s just take some deep breaths together.
Supporting you through emotional, physical and spiritual transition.
What we eat, what we fill our minds with, the environment we live in, the work we do, our connections and thoughts, as well as a myriad of other factors contribute to optimal health, not just one. There are so many ways up the mountain, so we just need to find the route that works best for you. In times of transition, it can be helpful to have someone support you through the process. To offer tools or guidance, but also to listen and make you feel like you aren’t alone. That’s all I’ve ever wanted at least, so if you feel like you’re ready, I hope that I can provide that for you.
I graduated as a holistic nutritionist (RHN, BA) in 2014 but through my own curiosity over the last 10 years, I’ve picked up a lot of different tools and information to pull from. But my own poor digestive health and quarter-life crisis is what led me to exploring what it actually means to be healthy, opening up a whole other way of relating to Life and my Self. My original foundation is food and lifestyle, but I’ve also acquired various other tools like breathing, astrology, numerology, the chakra system, energy work, somatic experiencing, grounding, music, writing and philosophy to round out my understanding. I try to stay as open-minded as possible, always willing to learn something new!
My hope is to encourage mutual connection, trust and compassion, as this will be a cooperative relationship, where we work together on your health and wellness. I believe we should both feel a genuine connection in order to work together, so if any of this resonates or if you would like to speak to me more, please feel free to reach out!
