Hello Beautiful Soul...

I’m so grateful that you popped in to read my story and learn how I became a Holistic Health Coach (insert big, love-filled virtual hug).

Me…

My name is Heidi, I am married to my high school sweetheart and first love Matt and am extremely privileged to be the Mama to 2 precious souls Eva – 17 and Jada – 13. We live in Lennox Head, a gorgeous little coastal town on the East Coast of Australia.

 

My History…

When I look back now I can see that from the day I was born I was destined to work in the health and wellness field. I grew up on a farm at Tullera, a small village in the Northern Rivers just inland from Lennox Head, where my incredible Dad and Grandpa still manage and work the land. This has instilled in me a strong work ethic and good life values. My amazing Mama raised us on natural therapies and whole foods so healthy living is in my blood! I have no doubt this beautiful grounded start to life has had, and continues to have, a positive influence on my life.

 

The turning point…

Around 4 years ago I reached breaking point…I was a true perfectionist trying to do it all…rushing around doing too many things, I was highly strung and stressed out putting pressure on myself working full time, whilst also trying to be the perfect mama and wife, keeping my home spotless (I would quite often stay up till 2 in the morning cleaning the house and trying to get it all done)! I certainly wasn’t making self-care a priority, it was only a matter of time before my body gave me a big wake up call in the form of adrenal fatigue – resulting in chronic anxiety and panic attacks for a period of 2 years. This was an extremely challenging time for me, where normal everyday tasks became really difficult, things like sitting in a meeting or appointment, travelling on a plane, being out in social situations, any setting where I felt like I couldn’t easily escape from brought on the anxiety sensations and panic attacks. In hindsight I now perceive this time as a beautiful gift as it literally transformed my life!
Healers are spiritual warriors who have found the courage to defeat the darkness of their souls. Awakening and rising from the depths of their deepest fears, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes. Reborn with a wisdom and strength that creates a light that shines bright enough to help, encourage, and inspire others out of their own darkness.

The lessons…

I had some pretty huge and life-altering realisations during those dark times, my number one was that if I didn’t have my health and happiness nothing else mattered. I couldn’t be a wife, mama, daughter, sister, friend, employee. I quickly learned that the only one that could truly help was me, at the end of the day it was me who had to do the inner and outer work to get through these challenges and come out the other side shinier than ever! My health, my life and my happiness was in my hands, it was time to stop looking outside of myself for my happiness and start to discover and connect with my truth.

 

The support…

To support me in this process I worked with my amazing kinesiologist Jo and my beautiful massage therapist Denise who were extremely supportive and helped to bring me back to a balanced state, giving me the clarity I needed around what was supporting me and what was making matters worse on an emotional, spiritual and physical level. I went through a process of removing all processed food from my diet including refined sugar, gluten and alcohol and I made yoga and meditation a priority in my daily morning routine which helped me to feel centred, connected and balanced. Naturally during this experience my mindset, perceptions and priorities shifted dramatically. With all these changes I began to move more into my truth and this is when I set out on a journey to find what it was that made me feel sparkly on the inside…hello Holistic Health Coaching, many a synchronicity later and here I am a Certified Integrative Health Coach!
I am so grateful that I followed my heart and am doing work I’m truly passionate about and creating a life I love…a life that is 100% authentically me!

Other things that light me up…

When I’m not coaching there’s a good chance you will find me somewhere in the sunshine practicing my daily rituals, running and doing yoga on the beach, SUP yoga-ing on the tea tree lake with my husband, out in nature chasing waterfalls and rock pools, bike riding, bush walking, meditating, in the kitchen preparing healthy treats and meals for my family, reading, sipping herbal tea, working on myself, learning, playing with essential oils, flipping an oracle card or two, drinking and eating scrumptious wholesome food with my special ones at my fave spots, watching/listening to live soulful music or at the farmers market! Thank you for popping in for a visit I’m so happy you are here!
