On these pages, I share my personal experiences and the latest information on health, happiness and living with more joy, peace and calmness in your life.
My background is in Counselling, being the Owner/Operator of my own businesses for over 35 years, all in the field of Health, Personal Development and Stress Management. I owned one of the first Organic Grocery Stores in Melbourne, Australia in the 1970's and later, after returning to study, went on to run my own Stress Management practice for over 20 years. I guided people to follow a healthier lifestyle, educating in the practices of Relaxation and Meditation, Tai Chi, Reiki, Personal Development and Self Awareness. I ran programs for people and organisations in varying fields in the welfare sector and corporate management.
After making a decision that I wanted more time for myself, I began studying Sales and Marketing and eventually linked up with a magnificent sustainable, green, Australian Company with the world's first range of Certified Organic personal and health care products. I'm proud to say I built a successful business right through to the top of the company plan and enjoy the fruits of that venture to this day, including some wonderful friendships around the world. It's been an enlightening and fulfilling process and education which I'm so thankful for.
In my 50's I developed (building up over many years since childhood) ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia and (allegedly, but I'm not a fan of specific labels) Lyme Disease and I'm thrilled to say that although I still find it difficult at times, I'm now many years into recovery and better health.
I've experienced long term sickness, financial difficulties, business failures, been through divorce, break ups, close friendship losses and more deaths of loved ones than I care to count. I believe in the great power of the human spirit and I'm enthused to help others to feel better and have a happier, more peaceful and fulfilling life.
As a Certified Mindfulness Teacher I'm a great advocate of Mindfulness and I love the peace, insight and freedom that comes with learning the importance of being consciously here and present in each moment and practicing Mindfulness through my day. I'm thankful I'm able to help others to learn, or pursue and deepen their Mindfulness practices.
I'm a nature loving person dedicated to the well-being of animals and I live with my husband and our dog and cat family on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. We follow a vegan lifestyle and a vibrantly alive, plant based and organic nutrition plan and love spending time at the beach and outdoors in nature.
Thank you for finding my Blog and I sincerely look forward to sharing and hearing from you.
All the best!
