My Story

I have had a lifelong curiosity and passion about health,  plant medicines and how to live a joyful healthy lifestyle. I started studying herbal medicine when I was a teenager, qualified as a Naturopath in my early 30's, later upgraded to two degrees, and completed a post graduate certificate in Evidence-based Complimentary Medicine in 2016.

I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, underlying viral infections and associated fatigue, now well managed. I have been through the passage of menopause and learned how to nurture oneself through this empowering time, and manage challenging symptoms.

I reared my two children naturally,  and homeschooled them. I supported my beloved teenage son on his courageous cancer journey and also his passing. 

My beloved husband, who has taken most of the photos for this website, also has cancer, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia, but he is fit and healthy and doing well. So, I am familiar with the role of carer and support person to someone with cancer, having supported my son and now my husband.

I am privileged to have a beautiful and talented daughter, two wonderful stepchildren and three delightful step-grandchildren now and another on the way. 

I am passionate about living the best life possible, in simplicity, presence, awareness and compassion, and to support others to also live their fullest potential.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. Your task is not to seek for love, but meely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
