Transforming PAIN to HEALING through Primal Lifestyle Adaptation


From a very young age, I was consumed by questioning the meaning of life, a hunger to understand pain and suffering and the resilience of the human Spirit.


My early childhood experiences of trauma and unexpected loss haunted me throughout my teenage years and early 20s, until I could no longer distract from the pain, and the initiation to my healing journey was born.

I have spent the last 15 years training in holistic nutrition, reflexology, clinical psychology, somatic and nervous system health, energy healing and mindfulness meditation.

Through early childhood loss, profound heartbreak, painful relationship endings and death, we have an opportunity to create deeper, more meaningful relationships, greater self-compassion and empathy.


The process of healing can be messy, confusing and challenging, and I truly believe that it is in our darkest times, the Soul discovers our deepest truths and wisdom.

What you're seeking, is seeking you. ~ Rumi

The cure for the pain is the pain. ~ Rumi
