I’m a Coach and EFT Tapping Practitioner. I’m passionate about helping other sensitive souls shift into alignment with their authentic selves and reconnect to their intuition. I believe that we all have a deep wisdom inside of us, and can access all of the answers we seek if we simply tune in.
I’m emphatic, intuitive and a highly sensitive person (HSP). I’m a 3/5 Generator in Human Design, and an Aries sun / Taurus moon.
I’m also a recovering perfectionist and people pleaser, and spent much of my childhood, teens and 20’s lacking confidence and feeling highly anxious.
How Did I get Here?
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated with the mental/emotional wellness side of life.
I experienced emotional bullying from a young age (think the movie Mean Girls – yikes! Those were extremely traumatizing times) and that led me to become so curious about human behaviour and the human emotional experience. I remember going to Chapters with my Mum and finding so much inspiration and hope in the self-help section. We also had an angel card deck that became my lifeline throughout that period and gave me my first taste of spirituality. Though I definitely lost some of my connection to spirituality throughout my teenage years, I still had this deep interest in emotional wellbeing and went on to get my university degree in Psychology.
After graduating, I worked in a corporate recruitment job for 5 years that just didn’t feel aligned. I was highly stressed, anxious and burnt out but felt stuck in that career path. Around this time, I came across wellness & self-growth podcasts and became hooked. I walked to and from work each day listening to episodes from inspiring hosts and guests who completely expanded what I thought was possible for myself (specifically, the Almost 30 Podcast and Happier with Gretchen Rubin). The inkling or nudge that had always been in my soul telling me I was meant to do something special started to grow. And I finally started listening! (Now I know this was my intuition guiding me towards my souls purpose or dharma).
Once I built up enough belief in myself, I made the decision to leave my job and go back to school for holistic nutrition. I was still full of self-doubt, but my intuition was just a little louder than my fear and I knew I had to follow that. So started my journey into a career in the wellness world! Though holistic nutrition was much more in alignment than my corporate job had been, it still didn’t quite align. During the first few years of my business, I struggled to find my niche. I bounced from general nutrition, to corporate wellness, to bridal wellness….and many others in between. I wasn’t finding momentum with those iterations of my business and I hit a rock bottom about a year and a half ago. I wasn’t bringing in enough income to help sustain mine and my Fiancè’s lifestyle, and it was putting huge pressure and stress on us. I now realize the reason wasn’t because I didn’t have the right offering or marketing / sales strategy, but rather that I was trying to fit into a box that just wasn’t me. I hadn’t found my most aligned business or niche yet.
During that rock bottom period, I was living off of Gabby Bernstein’s work, which really helped me get back on track. I came across an EFT Tapping video on her website and so sparked the greatest connection to a practice that I’ve ever experienced. I began tapping every single day, and haven’t stopped since! I felt so called to the practice of EFT and it fit me like a glove. It nourished my mind, body and soul in a way that nothing ever had. After one tapping session, I remember sitting in meditation and felt what I can only describe as the embodied energy of EFT come to me. It told me that I had to do this, and that this practice was meant for me. And so it is.
When I think back now I can see so many other signs that the universe had shared trying to guide me towards this work. For one, there was a period when the only card I would pull from my angel deck was “energy work”. Although I’m certified in Reiki, I didn’t feel like that was quite the right path for me. I felt confused by what to make of this recurring card, but stayed open to it’s meaning. It all makes sense now! What a beautiful example of how supported we really are, even when we don’t realize it.
I’m incredibly grateful to be at this place in my life and business where things are coming together. My souls purpose is to help others by sharing what I’ve gone through and am going through – to share my learnings, growth and insights, but also my struggles and challenges. I’ve always felt called to express myself – to express the depth & intensity with which I experience life (part of being a HSP) and all it teaches me. Creating guided EFT Tapping meditations and coaching others through this practice fits this perfectly. It nourishes my soul and lights me up beyond belief.
Thank you for joining me here and thank you for reading. I hope that sharing my story has supported and perhaps expanded you in some way.
I’m sending you love and I hope to tap with you soon!
