I have the ability to help you navigate your struggles, particularly at midlife because this was when I went through a major turning point but turned a crisis into an opportunity to revamp and reboot my life.
This challenging time eventually freed me from obligations and judgements about where I was in life and what I was capable of.
Now I support you where you are overwhelmed by creating safety and helping you find a clearer way forward.
I help you overcome imbalance, a lack of meaning or emotional confusion.
You are unsure how to live your potential and wonder how to find your life purpose.
You are at a turning point, feeling stuck, anxious, frustrated and uncertain what your next steps are.
I have tried and tested tools for finding peace, insight and purpose in your life.
In 1994 I left University to start my real education- learning about the ancient philosophy of yoga, meditation and practising with yogis almost daily for a year. They taught me about purifying my diet, life and being. My yoga and meditation practice span over twenty years up to today.
I started my apprenticeship and training in body work and counselling resulting in diplomas in zen shiatsu (Devon School of Shiatsu) in 2002 and counselling (Sacred Space Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy) in 2003.
I worked with natural remedies such as aromatherapy, herbal medicines and flower essences for a decade. They are still an essential part of my day to day life.
For five years I had the good fortune to encounter the sacred mysteries of the Kogi and Lakota shamanic paths through my work assisting sweat lodges and plant medicine ceremonies in South America with Heart of the Initiate.
In 2010 a whole new chapter began when I started life coach training with Dr. Martha Beck, culminating in life and master coach certification in 2011 and 2014 respectively. Dr. Martha Beck has been referred to as “the best known life coach in America.” By USA Today and Psychology Today.
I learnt effective techniques, new perspectives and the dedication required to give you traction on the path of self-mastery.
Besides my one to one consultations, I speak publicly on topics related to wellness and human potential at organisations such as Singtel, Microsoft, Citibank, National Youth Council, Health Promotion Board, Dow Jones and events such as the Holistic Festival and the Heart, Mind and Body Festival.
I have been featured in Executive Lifestyle, Time Out, Her World, Female and Finder magazines and on WKRZ 91.3, 93.8 Live, Class 95 FM, Razor TV and Primetime Morning on Channel News Asia.
Something more personal.
Like many Eurasian Singaporeans I enjoy eating, especially fresh whole organic and unprocessed foods.
Durians and avocados are my favourites, not necessarily in that order.
Karl Marx and Noam Chomsky are my intellectual crushes. I try to keep abreast of socio-political issues. At some point my inner personal development felt like it wanted to connect to the world around me and my community. I believe in signing petitions, speaking out in support of social causes and being a part of creating a reciprocal, sustainable and inclusive world in a practical and grassroots way.
Reading Wade Davis inspires me no end.
I am out on my bike as much as I can wearing too much sunblock while navigating the lush inner path and wonder of day to day living.
