Some Weird & Wonderful things about me

I’m sharing about myself so you can have a sense of me to know if we could be a good fit to work together.

I love meditation. I’ve been practising for 4 years & regularly do 10 day silent meditation retreats.
Prior to coaching, I was a primary school teacher for 7 years. I mostly taught age 4 to 5 year olds
I’m obsessed with Myers Briggs Personality typology. I’m INFJ & I love the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) research and vision boards too.
I journal everyday morning and evening. I still have my diaries from when I was 12 years old!

I’ve tried almost every spiritual and healing practice- it’s been a long path around the world and within my being!
I need to spend quite alot of time on my own… slow time, empty time, time with my own thoughts.
I love forests, tea, nice food, hula hooping, dancing, kirtan, my nephews & loud hip hop music in my car!
Holistic Health: I eat plant-based, sugar-free, gluten free & love natural remedies.
