Genuine Support

Deep Nature Connection

Personal Healing and Emotional Flow


I work exclusively with women who are seeking to transform and deeply dive into their authentic feminine self.

I welcome the opportunity to work together and support your authentic growth, personal healing and deep inspiration.

I offer One on One Sessions, Personal Intensives and 3mth month Mentoring Programs which are specifically tailored to meet your unique needs.



Sessions with me are heart felt and deeply respectful explorations of what is happening in life as you perceive it. As we explore your direct experience we clarify and transform your life's challenges into unique pathways for personal growth. Through the doorway of mastery of your emotional world we can journey together towards your personal strength.



I offer FREE online monthly group calls to my current female clients. These last for 1-2 hours. You can tune in live via ZOOM or listen via a recording. This is a wonderful opportunity to cultivate your inspiration for the journey of life as we all support each other as tribe. Each month there is a theme, an occasional sassy guest speaker, confidential life discussions and of course a chance to ask questions and initiate group explorations. Women are most powerful when in connection and I would love to have you join our monthly calls as a way to discover this pathway. 



Through gentle awareness techniques we can identify what is at the heart of your distress and release what you are carrying deep in your body.  Exploring what is carried in the body will allow you to reclaim significant parts of your being. This process of release will also trigger greater parts of your authentic self to be revealed - allowing you to access a genuine felt sense of internal stillness, wholeness and potency.

My therapeutic focus is to guide your awareness into the simplicity of the moment, from here we can use somatic body expression and narrative expression to release and balance.

Where suitable I can also offer an indigenous Soul Retrieval process to deeply reveal and heal unprocessed soul trauma.



I have a unique perspective on parenting through my extensive experience with traditional indigenous communities and my own journey of raising my two children with secure attachment.

There are intense pressures on mothers in the modern world. These pressures can make it extremely challenging to see the gifts of parenting and the unexpected personal gifts our children carry. I can offer numerous parenting techniques and frameworks which can refocus and balance your family relationships. I would love the opportunity to help you unlock the gifts of your parenting journey.



Understanding our purpose in life can bring our day to day existence out of the mundane and into the mystical.

Living a life of purpose can make every day a joyful adventure filled with pleasure, meaning and worth. I can help you to cultivate your understanding of your unique path and expand your connection to your own personal pleasure.

I can guide you in gaining insight, clarity and healing directly from the source of your life - the earth. The mirror of the natural world and your direct connection to nature will be your ultimate guide and healer.



Are you clear on what your feminine Soul desires to offer in the world but lack the clarity and power to make it happen?

Often the initial answer is simple yet difficult - we need to feel what we have been avoiding and digest what we are carrying. In so doing we take full responsibility for who we are and birth a new phase of personal responsibility and sovereignty in our life.

Through unlocking our stored life experiences we naturally begin to feel more clarity and power flow through our body. When we learn the art of transformation in the emotional body we can powerfully move through challenging feelings of grief, loss, shame, anger, depression and anxiety.

In sessions together I can show you how these simple body based movement techniques can be integrated easily into your life, bringing you greater healing and joy. As women when we learn to master the true nature of the emotional body we can more easily access deeper states of spiritual awareness, pleasure and connection.

When we play, mother, connect, love and work from this place within us, we are aligning our conscious awareness with our deepest place of power. We naturally unlock our potential through deep connection and the full expression of our female body.   



A simple and effective way to go to your body and release peak emotions.








Vision Quest Mentoring is designed to support the greater unfolding of your personal vision.

After the Vision Quest ceremonial process we can have large amounts of held experience seek to move - sometimes this brings chaos and seeming instability into our lives. With support and guidance this quickening on our spiritual path can be harnessed to your personal benefit.

As women we have a unique ability to ride the waves of spiritual transformation. We can learn to welcome the challenges of living a life sourced from deep soul connection. 

I welcome the opportunity to support you on this journey.


"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi



We Need to Take Personal Responsibility

Mentoring Programs suit women who are prepared to commit to a longer journey of discovery and genuinely look into their personal story. Together we can embark on an earth based healing journey which will unlock your potential and personal wisdom. 

Mentoring for 3 months is particularly helpful if you find yourself stuck in unconscious patterns which block your capacity to experience purposeful action, safety, creativity and love.  

Through the use of specific awareness and healing techniques your capacity to cultivate an enriching life journey will once again be ignited. Your deep reservoir of inner stillness can be reawakened and your unique sense of rightness in your journey will once more become apparent. 

In each session we will dive into exploring your true essence and the spiritual wisdom of personal transformation. Consistently cultivating greater and greater mastery in the journey of life



There can also come a time when we are called to move out of the day to day frameworks of life and into the greater mysteries of creation. A time where we are clear on the steps we need to take but need a greater power to bring it into reality. The 7 Levels of Quest address this movement. These teachings are best suited to women who are ready to fully commit their lives to a purpose beyond self.



I am available for one off sessions, Personal Intensives and 3 month Mentoring Programs.

I can connect via Phone/Skype or in person (Halfway Creek & Coffs Harbour, NSW and occasionally Sydney, Australia). I work predominantly with women and offer culturally sensitive sessions for indigenous Australians and LGBTQIA community members.

During the last 15 years I have worked extensively with people experiencing the following issues:

Crisis and Major Life Transitions, Spiritual Crisis & Renewal, Relationship Issues and Adolescent/Parenting Issues, Low Mood, Depression & Anxiety, Grief & Loss, Suicide, Addiction, Childhood Trauma via sexual, verbal and physical abuse, Life Instability, Excessive Fear of the dark and being alone in the wilderness, Body Image Dissatisfaction, Lack of Clarity and Purpose, Unclear Connection to your Place/Country.



As the Co-Founder of Nature Philosophy Australia I specialise in offering transformational Deep Nature Connection programs. I welcome the chance to partner with you to shift deeply held blocks and cultivate a deeper relationship to the earth and your spiritual essence.

I am a Mentor, professionally trained Counsellor, Energetic Healer, Vision Quest Protector and Trainer. I have undertaken many of my own spiritual quests and Vision Quest Ceremonies.  I regularly facilitate Women's Retreats and Deep Nature Connection Programs. I have undertaken both formal and informal shamanic training in indigenous healing lineages.

I have worked in the healing profession for over 15 years and through embracing my own struggles and personal power I have developed a keen love of helping others to find greater grace and wholeness in life.

I deeply understand how distressing life can be when we feel disconnected from the earth, from ourselves and stuck in emotional pain. I often use the mirror of the natural world to make clear areas where we are blocked and with awareness cultivate greater spiritual wholeness, flow and power.

The momentum of my own journey has lead me into many deep immersion experiences within the wilderness. Through these intense periods of surrender I have found a deep reservoir of natural wisdom.

It is my life's mission to offer this wild sourced wisdom - bringing greater mastery, earth connection, spiritual awareness and personal freedom into your daily life.
