Why is it that some people, despite challenging circumstances are able to thrive where others have everything but are unfulfilled? Why is it that we are all fundamentally the same but at the same so unique? My awareness and curiosity developed very early on.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by human potential and the psyche.
I began to really reflect: “What’s important to me? What do I need to thrive now? What is my body telling me? Who do I even want to become? What is my purpose?
My pain quickly became my teacher and my fear became my guide. I began listening to my body and soul to reconnect with myself and my needs, to live aligned with my values, to become who I always wanted to be. I learned the tools to listen to my emotions and to design a purposeful path. I nurtured self-awareness and prioritised my well-being so that I could own and write my future. Well-being through authentic and intentional living became my purpose. I began experimenting and understanding how to connect my strengths, passions, skills and direct experience to not only survive, but thrive and live in alignment and with purpose.
I was an observer of individual differences, growing up seeing my big brother navigating the world with a congenital condition that influenced his abilities and position in the world. I began to better understand perception and how reality is not as it is, but as one experiences it.
My observations turned into academia where I studied Psychology and Neuroscience and eventually went on to work in film, business and technology.
Looking back, like many of us, I avoided deeply feeling difficult emotions because it meant getting closer to the feeling of human suffering. We are programmed to evade painful experiences and I wasn’t ready. I had already felt too much pain, my brother had just passed away. I focused on more “fun” interests: film and music. How could I help artists make a living from their creativity? How could I help them reach their potential?
After a major and unexpected turn in 2014, I had no choice. This time it was me living with chronic pain and fighting every day to give meaning and purpose to what I was doing. Lost, emotionally and physically exhausted I began to reconnect with myself.
I help people connect or reconnect with their core emotions, uncover what’s meaningful to them so they can dream big and intentionally design a life that they love, no matter what. Let me guide you.
