Journey to Therapy
THE THERAPY JOURNEY
My last 20 years was dedicated mainly to my law career and later came to the realization that there was so much more that I could offer. I started out by learning about esoteric teachings, crystal healing and chakra balancing, then became trained in Giaia healing followed by Reiki. 5 years later I became a Reiki level 2 healer. This is my Lineage: Mikao Usui- Chujiro Hayashi - Hawayo Takata-Phyllis Lei Furumoto - Marta Gety - Vivien Candlish - Margaret Northway - Lesley Carol - Maya Ris - Liz Volney.
Somewhere along this journey, as a hobby, my Pure Loving Care brand of organic body lotions and soaps were launched with names like SheaRose, Coco grease and cakey lips. The lightbulb moment came when I realised that - it’s all connected- the mind, body and spirit.
Greater focus on my counselling career began after I took a major decision to remove myself from a disempowering situation. By then, I’d lost sense of my direction and stuck in the status quo! It was in this loss that I returned to healing and my interest in counselling developed.
My experiences in life remain my most respected teachers. My most valuable lesson is that my narrative depends on me!
I'd like to share some other lessons learnt :
The only person responsible for you is you! A hard pill to swallow, but once you digest it, it will make a lot a sense.
No one can make you happy. That is your responsibility.
Once you love and respect yourself enough, you will automatically receive the same energy from others.
The heart has enough space to heal and grow!
Forgiveness is key.
