My Wellbeing Philosophy - is my Passion and Purpose...
Everyone has the right and potential to live a happy, healthy life.
No-one needs to live with illness longer than necessary, there’s always a reason for the body to be expressing and demonstrating an imbalance.
The key, is to master ‘tuning in’ to the body’s intellect, it’s innate wisdom and interpret messages, become aware of ‘self talk’ to nurture good feeling thoughts and find simple, practical ways to calm and soothe the mind.
The aim, is to be ‘heart-centred’.
Being ‘well’ is a choice; practicing and developing a mindful focus on living life with a zest for fun, kindness and compassion to enjoy a wonderfully balanced lifestyle filled with love and vitality.
I specialise in two areas:
(i) Prevention; helping women who are 'full on, flat out in the fast lane' to regularly take essential time-out for themselves with a specific focus in ongoing 'self-care' to relax, recharge and revitalise.
(ii) Recovery; an experienced Chrysalis Effect Specialist and Wellbeing Coach providing guidance using a holistic approach and 'lifestyle medicine'.
What makes me a little different, is that I combine a range of modalities into a personalised programme for the individual needs of each person.
Overall, taking a holistic approach to targeting health challenges and providing a practical lifestyle solution for changing habits of a lifetime, to a lifetime of harmony, health and happiness.
The MetaWellBeing Programme is something which I have developed for helping people to create positive change and transformation in a focused environment of loving support.
Being in a beautiful and non-judgemental environment is massively important for feeling sufficiently confident to engage with the process and be willingly open. This was my reason for creating 1 : 1 ‘Gorgeous Retreat Getaways’ which are held in a lovely farmhouse located on the borders of Derbyshire and Staffordshire in the UK. Also, I run annual dedicated retreats in Barbados and Tuscany for small groups up to 12 maximum.
In particular, I like to work with women who are ‘full on, flat out in the fast lane’ typical of the 21st century. The aim is to create balance in their fast paced lives with regular respite for introspection and contemplation. They are introduced to a range of ‘advanced thinking’ potentials for an up-scaling of their continued pursuit in the journey of ‘self-discovery and realisation’ to develop a smart style of living; creating healthy habits and mastering life’s ebb and flow.
