For 20 years I worked as a Physiotherapist and overlapping that I incorporated coaching for 15 years. I also discovered that I had a gift for taking really complex topics and making them easy to apply. I am a professional student and love to learn, but I also am very practical and results-driven. Together these make me a really good coach, guide, and teacher.
In 2017, I was inspired to make my teachings available to more people and I first wrote the book Fear Unravelled and then created the Abundant Life Method. I also lead a team of Wellness Advocates where I get to share some of the principles of transformation with future wellness providers. It is my dream that the wellness lifestyle that I teach becomes part of common practice in homes around the globe.
I do have some education and credentials to back up what I do, but truthfully having to heal myself was my greatest teacher and is what I draw on the most to help those who I am blessed to serve. Today I am a retired Physiotherapist, an entrepreneur who offers wellness coaching to help people transform their wellness using a body-mind-spirit approach through my business called Unleashed Essentials.
