What always inspires me the most is helping others to achieve their dreams.
My professional career background in my homeland Australia is varied and diverse. As a dedicated life-long learner I am no stranger to learning new skills. From Software Engineer (12 yrs) working across a variety of industries; to College Lecturer (6 yrs). Freelance Eco-Architect (12 yrs). Further study in holistic health and mind science led to a career as a Positive Mind Coach and Natural & Holistic Therapist (current), Throughout my life I have always built a solid reputation through my intuitive ability and genuine caring & dedicated approach to helping others.
I embody kindness in all that I do, and enjoying helping in my local community. I have served on many voluntary committees including the Australasian Straw Bale Building Association, Avon Valley Environmental Association, and for two years (while also working full time as a freelance eco-building designer) I enjoyed working one day per week as a volunteer wildlife carer at a nearby marsupial hospital.
In 2012 I emigrated to Ireland with my Irish husband who had been in Australia for 30 years. Over several years I completed further studies in spirituality, world religions and interfaith ministry. In 2019 I travelled to India to complete my Nada Yoga Teacher training in Rishikesh, which included traditional Hatha yoga along with sound & music therapy with indian classical musical instruments.. .
As an Earth Spiritualist Interfaith Minister, my role is varied and diverse. I am a modern spiritual teacher, teaching, meditation, yoga, personal & spiritual development, womens art & crafts, along with inspiring womens circles to help women of all ages believe in themselves and achieve their dreams.
I am the Founder, senior therapist and training director of Pythagoras Institute of Sound & Vibrational Healing and Founder, yogi and training director of Yoga Nidra School.
In 2018 I founded Wellbeing in the Park (sponsored by Cork City council), an annual day festival of yoga and wellbeing activities to raise funds for Catriona & her dedicated crew at Cork City’s homeless food kitchen, Cork Penny Dinners.
In 2019 I founded Craft for Kindness, providing printed knitting patterns of my own design free to any members of the public who wish to knit much needed hats and other small winter items to donate to Cork Penny Dinners for distribution to the homeless.
Ceremony & Celebration
My ceremonial work all year round, gives me the opportunity to work with couples and families to create beautiful unique & personalised non-denominational ceremonies of all styles to celebrate all of life’s sacred moments. From beautiful marriage ceremonies, baby naming, funeral & memorial to opening ceremonies for private and public events. I will work with you to create a unique & meaningful ceremony to celebrate your special occasion in the manner it deserves.
From time to time I also officiate and facilitate corporate and community events. From live music festivals, to corporate leadership training, fundraising events, to cultural and spiritual gatherings. In 2017 I was honoured to conduct the opening and closing ceremony at Ireland’s sacred Hill of Tara in Co.Meath as part of our national summer solstice celebrations.
With my holistic design approach I help you to create a beautiful ceremony which reflects your unique style and .is meaningful and special to you right down to the very last detail. It’s the attention to the finer details that makes the difference between a good and a great ceremony.
Each ceremony I create & conduct is an opportunity for me to assist you to celebrate on of life’s most significant events in a manner which is not only relaxed, but also auspicious, meaningful, dignified and memorable for all the right reasons.
I am honoured to be entrusted with such an important responsibility in people’s lives, which I never take for granted.
If you would like a unique & personalised ceremony designed to your own requirements, because you believe that your ceremony should be an important part of your special day. I would be honoured to work with you.
