How Heartcentred Wellbeing was founded

Here’s a little info about me to help those finding my website understand why I’m so passionate about the things I teach. From my early twenties I had come across different teachings about energy and healing however I clearly wasn’t ready at that stage to take it all onboard. I’d read lots of things about the power within us to make the changes we want to see in our external but let the information pass me by.

Fast forward almost twenty years and the information I had learned all those years ago truly started to sink in. At the age of 39 I had my second child. Before going into the operating theatre to have my cesarean, instinctively I knew something wasn’t quite right. As many of us do in times like this, I brushed it off, as just allowing fear to take over and went ahead with the cesarean.

Literally straight after the cesarean, an ECG and Echocardiagram and whilst still nursing my new born baby in the hospital bed I was informed by a team of cardiologists that I had a severe heart condition, something I had been born with but something that had now become critical enough to need open heart surgery to correct.

Obviously not being aware of this condition I was in a state of shock as to me I felt fine. Anyway, to cut a very long story short, 2 months after giving birth I underwent open heart surgery to replace part of my aorta and insert a mechanical valve. Needless to say I now tick like the croc out of Peter Pan however I am now healthier and happier than I’ve ever been.

Whilst sitting in the hospital bed the night before the operation I had one of the nicest feelings I’d ever experienced. Coming from a difficult upbringing my need to control my external to create stability and security was massively ripped from beneath my feet when I realised this one was completely out of my hands and there was nothing I could do about it.

That beautiful feeling I experienced there in the hospital bed was complete surrender and letting go.

After recovering I took myself off to Bali solo to a spiritual festival taking place there to gather my thoughts and make some sense of what had just happened. During my trip I started to think how I had lived the first 40 years of my life and what I wanted for the next 40 years now I had been given this wonderful kick up the arse so to speak to re route my souls journey.

I came back from Bali, retrained in Yoga and Ayurveda and started my new journey on this fantastic path and Heartcentred Wellbeing was formed. Aptly named due to my own experiences.

Although loving the spiritual side of yoga, after teaching yoga for a little while I wanted to understand a more functional type of yoga that anyone could do to help their body and mind rather than the pretzel poses only most gymnasts can get into.

That is when I trained in Yoga for Athletes with Sarah Ramsden ( a highly experienced teacher who has trained premier league sports teams and individuals).

Training in Sports yoga helped me to gain a deeper understanding of how our body and muscles adapt to the way we use them daily and how to counterbalance that with yoga to bring our bodies back into the alignment.  

Along my journey I started to gain even more understanding in energy and how we are not just this meat suit and monkey mind. How energy plays a huge part in all existence, in the quantum field.

How by changing our internal we can change our external in subtle ways by understanding the art of non resistance and letting go, just like that moment in the hospital bed all those years ago.

Having studied the first year of Psychology, I’ve always been fascinated with the brain and mind. How our subconscious mind is super powerful and how unwittingly from things stored in the subconscious mind from childhood we draw the same patterns in time and time again without being aware of it.

Wanting to dive a little deeper into this area and learn tools that I could help others avoid the long struggle that I had faced to get results a lot faster than years of trial and error techniques, I trained in PSYCH-K and am now a  PSYCH-K Master Facilitator in addition to my yoga and Ayurveda training.

PSYCH-K is a wonderful tool to help reprogram the subconscious mind quickly and effectively to help upload more positive and beneficial programmes in our powerful storehouse helping to achieve the life you truly want and deserve rather than one our limiting beliefs may be drawing back around time and again.

Many of my private clients initially booked me to improve their physical health as they were feeling out of sorts from stress they had endured that had eventually manifested in the body but during our sessions were able to understand the link between our physical, mental, emotional and energetic bodies.

Thus wellbeing transformational coaching was an obvious next progression of where I took my business. Working with clients to reduce stress and anxiety, improve their physical and mental health, changing their mindset smashing any subconscious blocks, tapping into their inner wisdom to create a calmer, more joyous life.

Everything is connected, to understand one you need an understanding of the others to help draw in the things you truly want. Life is supposed to be lived to the full not just existing.

Even children understand this by finding the joy and excitement in their daily experiences however sadly as adults we lose the awe of life as we build our layers along the way.

So if you’re open and ready to create a happier, healthier and more joyous life for yourself then take that first step on the staircase and book a free self discovery call.

 

My Mission

To help as many people as possible to reduce their stress levels, balance their body and mind, improve their flexibility and balance and manage their wellbeing effectively in a natural, organic way through healthy nutritious food, herbs, yoga and meditation.

Many people have hectic lifestyles these days, juggling the stresses life throws at us daily with a feeling that we simply don’t have time to put ourselves first. What if we could show you a way that by changing a few simple things you will gain more time, more energy and feel a great improvement in your health and wellbeing in the process?

My aim is to help people discover how the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda,  Yoga and PSYCH-K can transform your life helping you feel calmer, happier and healthier. 

My Vision

My vision is to see more people heal themselves and improve their general physical and mental wellbeing through herbs, nutrition, yoga and mediation. To opt for local foods from local producers, helping the environment and themselves by reducing transportation of goods and increasing the nutrients we receive in our foods.

Each of these elements individually will help to improve your health so even by opting to work on a couple of the above lifestyle changes you will notice an improvement in your life within weeks.

“The proof of the pudding is in the eating” so when you have reached a point in your life where you have a desire to improve your physical and mental health in a more natural way, where you realise that the short fix solutions you use are only prolonging the inevitable, where you would like to heal your ailments or reduce your stress levels in a more holistic way, then contact us and we can provide you with the most suitable workshops and classes for your individual needs.
