I was born in Dundee, Scotland and raised in Kaduna, NigeriaBeing a Third Culture Kid I was wired differently and it has given me a unique perspective on life. I love learning and I love sharing what I have learnt with others.               
As a natural hand holder I have always wanted  people to feel more heard, more understood and to experience more compassion.
I realised from an early age that the 'system' we have been taught to live in has caused much suffering. It is a system that places value on our appearance, intelligence, wealth, productivity, health, physical ability, sexual preference/identity plus many other classifications. How can we all thrive in a system which operates like an exclusive club that not everyone can join?  The truth is we can't and the trauma of not being respected and validated as the magnificent and majestic beings that we are has wounded us all. 
My life's work is to guide people towards wholeness and contentment that is never found in the egocentric material world. 
I have learnt from leading experts in Trauma, Healing, Shame Resilience, Coaching, and Inner Parenting. Everything that helped me climb out of my own trauma trenches I now share with others.  I have facilitated self-discovery workshops, run online groups, hold space for a regular women's circle, and work one on one with private clients. 

I hold a MA in Indigenous Studies, I am a certified Life Coach, and a Practitioner of The Richards Trauma Process. 

In my own practice I advocate for naps and nature, kind 'inner' voices, time for creativity, wholesome food, nourishing relationships, laughter, and lots of fun.

I have been married to Simon for 28 years, we have three beautiful adult children, and live on "Magindah", a Pecan Farm in the Byron Bay Hinterland in Australia.

One of my greatest achievements was getting out of the 'rat race' in 2003 and taking a year to travel around the world with Simon and our children. Finding a way to create a handmade life has been life sustaining for me.

I am also the offical 'dinner lady' and secretary at Pearces Creek Talks, a community organisation that hosts community conversations about connection to land.
