Parenthood

I am the mother of a teenage son and daughter who have been my great teachers. My journey as a parent has taken me through some of the most incredible, memorable experiences of my life.

As with all life journeys, parenthood has brought with it many challenges and learning curves. I am grateful for this experience and deeply believe that it has enriched my understanding of human relationships.

Learning

I have a lust for learning that is reflected in my diverse studies. I have studied fine arts, gender, philosophy, patternmaking, dressmaking, linguistics, literature, ancient civilisations, feminism, sociology, horticulture, permaculture, psychology, counselling, addiction, relationships, & sex, love and relationship coaching.

I take true delight in supporting people through their personal transformations
