After my 30th Birthday I sold all my furniture, gave up my apartment and carefree life.

I was a successful Personal Trainer and lived my days trail running, mountain biking and ocean swimming on the Northern Beaches of Manly in Sydney, Australia.


I had all the things I thought would make me happy, yet I suffered silently in loneliness, self doubt and a hidden sense of not liking who I was.

I had success outside in the world

Yet internally I struggled to love my life, my friends, my Self.

On the turning of my 30th birthday I sat myself down on the sand of my favourite beach and asked myself, 'What might my older self say to me right now?'

The answer was surprisingly simple.


I want to feel a sense of trust with my self, my dreams and desires.

I want to be able to take risks, to take up space in this world.

I long to feel a sense of belonging to this world and to know what sacred means to me.

"...I want to fall in love with this life of mine."

The study of somatic therapy awoke me to a life that is beyond what I thought I would ever achieve.

And yet, there is also a sense of deep knowing, this is how it was always meant to be.

I believe there is a great loss of connection to self in humanity right now.

Somatics returned a piece of that which was lost for me.

I am  joyfully discovering myself again and again as I continue to collect more and more pieces

to myself and to this world.
