My Why, My Story

How pain turned into a gift

It all began with a diagnosis of clinical depression when I was 28 years old. To be honest, I didn’t even know what that meant at the time, or how that diagnosis would be the catapult that changed the direction of my life.

As I worked through the standard system of doctors, hospitals and therapy, I began to realize something wasn’t working, but I didn’t know what.

I ended up in hospital with severe depression, and several years later was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, forcing me to leave a dream job in television.

I found myself unable to work for 10 years and had to sell my house and car to live. My whole life was literally turned upside down and I had no idea how to make it right again.

You see, what I didn’t realize at the time was that there was a deeper reason for my unhappiness and illness…

Even though I had tried over 140 different therapies, nothing was getting to the root of the problem.

After 5 years of searching for answers without results, and not really knowing if or how I may ever be well again, I realised I had two options:

I could stay housebound and unwell, watching my life disappearing in front of my eyes, or I could do something different.

I chose to take a huge risk, selling my house to travel around the world on ‘one last trip’ in case my health worsened and I simply wouldn't be able to do it at all. Even though at times I was unable to get out of bed or walk, something kept me going.

As I travelled the world, I looked for answers: from Shamans in Mexico to Spiritual Gurus in Costa Rica, I tried and tested a multitude of strange and wonderful therapies, but still nothing was working. 

And then, after nearly a year, just before I was due to fly back to New Zealand, I finally found what I was looking for: an understanding of the real root causes of illness, which had nothing to do with anything physical! I had no idea I had been looking in all the wrong places for the answers!

I immediately started training in some transformational therapies and slowly started to bring myself back to health. It took another 6 years before I was able to say I was well enough to re-enter life and the work force again.

Since then I have studied more than 20 revolutionary cutting-edge theories and methods in order to restore my health, techniques which I have since used to help hundreds of people worldwide.

My clients come to me because they are tired, sick, overwhelmed or suffering a chronic health condition that no-one seems to be able to fathom.

It is my privilege to be able to help them (you) understand the real root cause of the problem and help them (you) turn it around.

If what you've tried in the past hasn't got you the results you need... I invite you to explore ways we can work together. Good things come to those who are open to change!
