I have spent most of my adult life looking for understanding, wisdom and my life’s purpose. I met masters, a few charlatans and many kind mentors who helped me perceive the deeper currents of life.
There were many paths I trod down. What I found was that there were no false starts or dead ends but merely footsteps along the way and passageways or dimensions that had yet to be discovered.
Studying jazz, ballet, contemporary and classical Indian dance in my teens and twenties, the first dreams I pursued were of being a dancer at GCSE and AS Level (UK). I then completed a yoga teacher training course in 1997 with Synthesis of Light (UK). Further training in the healing arts led to a Zen Shiatsu diploma from the Devon School of Shiatsu (UK) and a diploma in Psycho-spiritual Counselling from the Sacred Space Institute of Counselling and Psychotherapy (UK). I also worked extensively with natural remedies such as aromatherapy, herbal medicines and received certificates in Reiki, Australian Bush Flower Essences and Angelic Guidance. For five years I had the good fortune to encounter the depths of the Kogi and Lakota shamanic paths through sweat lodges and plant medicine ceremonies in South America.
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.
Today I have found purpose in my work in a life that brings together all my experiences, training and allows me to share my medicine- Medicine is a shamanic term that means that which can help you become more whole.
Besides my one to one coaching and facilitation work I have spoken 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 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.
My articles have been published in iCoach magazine and on Holistic Asia, Elephant Journal and What Therapy.
I am currently working on a mid-life memoir and getting out on my bike as much as I can while navigating the lush inner path and wonder of day to day living.
