How Do I Help You?

You know how even if financially we’re doing well, we can struggle with self-doubt or low self-esteem, feel trapped in our careers, unfulfilled or not appreciated in our relationships, or feel we’ve lost a sense of purpose, meaning or joy. Especially if we are going through major life changes.

Let me introduce some of the services and modalities I use to help you.

Life Coaching

Helping You Move Forward With Personalized Coaching

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), powerful questioning technique and integrated tools to help you move forward, develop your full potential, gain confidence and reclaim your self-worth and joy.

Why Change?

If it were so easy to change or to eliminate the things that prevent us from moving forward, wouldn’t we all do it tomorrow? The reality is that many of us don’t. We might be holding back due to fear, ignorance, or because we simply fail to recognize opportunities. And sometimes we are ready, but we fail to take the first step.

What is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is personal development in action. It is a facilitated, structured process, during which the coach uses effective questioning to help a client close the gap between where they are and where they would like to be. So, a coach helps to move them from their current reality to future desired goals.

Goals are determined by the client.

The coach merely helps the client to identify and overcome negative thoughts and mental blocks, suggests resources to help them, and supports them to turn ideas into action. Family, friends or colleagues often come with preconceived ideas and judgments about us. A coach comes to us with an open mind and the skills to make things happen! They help us to discover what truly drives us and what we need to change, and then inspire, motivate and work with us to bring about change

My Approach

I use official and trusted life coaching techniques, coupled with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). During a typical session, we analyse your goals, where you currently are and what might possibly holding you back. We then identify some options and agree on actions plans. In my coaching, I use a variety of questions and NLP techniques.

As we uncover more, we may concentrate on aspects, but you remain in charge of the agenda and what you want to achieve. Sessions can take place either via Skype or in person. I work best with clients who WANT to move forward, and for whom the pain of not doing it is simply too much.

A Life Coach Can Help You To:

  • Delve a bit deeper within or look off into the future and become honest with yourself. – Align mind, body and spirit if you wish to and become more centred in the moment. – Gain a sense of personal mastery and fulfilment.
  • Overcome limiting beliefs and obstacles that may have prevented you from moving forward. – Take the first step towards change and support you along the way. – Realise “quick wins” and stay focused on longer-term goals. – Visualize your dreams coming true.
  •  Delve a bit deeper within or look off into the future and become honest with yourself. – Align mind, body and spirit if you wish to and become more centred in the moment. – Gain a sense of personal mastery and fulfilment.

Does This Sound Like You?

  • You feel restricted by expectations and a lack of choice or freedom
  • You feel trapped in your job or career with no means of “escape”
  • You feel stuck in a mediocre or unsatisfying relationship
  • You question your spirituality and want to deepen it
  • You “have it all”, but are lonely and unhappy inside
  • You know you’re destined for more in life
  • You know you’re destined for more in life
  • You are experiencing major life changes
  • You long for adventure, joy and passion

Kahuna Massage

Using the innate wisdom of the body to discover and heal

Many people think transformation is only in the mind. Our mental constructs are all valuable information sources and expression, and we currently have no real idea just exactly how powerful our thoughts are. However, blockages often occur at a very deep level. It is of little use, and often detrimental, if we just “push on” if the trauma or stressor is not addressed.

That is where Kahuna Massage (or bodywork, as it is more accurately referred to) can open up a whole new dimension of healing and growth. 

The therapist uses dynamic, rhythmic, wavelike motions over the body and it is left feeling cleansed, balanced and connected. As the body becomes more open, flexible and flowing, one can move through life with greater ease and presence.

Kahuna is different from many other forms of massage, in that it works on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. It may release past life memories, stress and trauma locked away in the subconscious mind, and create harmony in the body’s subtle energy channels.

What can be expected during a session?

The therapist uses dynamic, rhythmic, wavelike motions over the body and it is left feeling cleansed, balanced and connected.

It allows for a slightly sensuous and unpredictable style of massage and does not follow a set or mechanical routine. It is purely therapeutic, and is NOT a tantric or sexual massage. People often experience profound healing and impact on their being, and a trance – like effect is oftentimes experienced, when the client can get “out of their head”. They feel deeply loved and honoured.

Every kahuna session is different. Some days you may feel very relaxed with not much coming up, other days you may experience a cathartic release. One day you may just be floating in restful bliss, on another perhaps a powerful emotional journey. Often the effects and manifestations only reveal themselves in the days afterwards.

The intention is key though, and you remain in charge of your healing. You will NEVER be pushed or required to go deeper than you are willing and ready for.

It can assist to heal issues around intimacy and trust, emotional blocks, body issues.
It offers a safe space to become vulnerable, to surrender, and to open up enough to release deeply buried wounds.

Polynesian Floor Treatment

The Polynesian Floor Treatment is a kahuna massage variation which is profound as a complete healing session.

It stimulates and boosts energy flow, and helps to lengthen the muscles, mobilize the joints and will leave you feeling invigorating and alive.

You lie fully clothed on the floor, and allow me to work with gentle yet firm stretches and acupressure massage along the meridian lines and vital energy points
On a physical level, it works on flushing toxins from the lymph system, restoring energy flow, boosting the immune system and keeping the fascia (the connective tissue that protects and supports our body and muscles) relaxed and supple.
The floor treatment is suitable for all, often considered as “lazy man’s yoga” as it helps stretches muscled without exertion.

It is specifically very effective for:
– Releasing recent trauma, when the body is full of adrenaline
– When a sense of grounding is desired, often when it feels like “the earth has been pulled away from underneath”
– Releasing very stiff joints
– Relieving fatigue, muscular cramping and nervous tension
– Someone who requires a stronger, more “yang” approach to release.
– As a variety to the other modalities, to give the body something “fresh”.

The practitioner is trained how to listen to the body and to apply their intuition

Deep Tissue Spiritual Release work

The principle of deep release work is that all experiences are embodied. The body holds out emotional history as much as the mind does. These embodied patterns flow into all aspects of life, and influences how we think, feel, walk, talk, interact, and our potential for change.

In Hawaii, the body was known to have its own consciousness.
Deep release work brings attention to, and helps release memories in the tissues.

Tools such as fiery, deeper strokes, elbow work, sound, breath, mantras, forgiveness, ritual, and integration is used.

Please note that extra time is required for this type of work, and the readiness of the client will be assessed and discussed with respect.

What is Kahuna?

Kahuna Massage is a dynamic, deep, yet gentle massage, restoring flow and allowing for healing and release at a very deep level, also called the “massage of loving touch” . It is an ancient healing system from the Polynesian shamans that restores balance to the mind, body and soul.

The massage feels very supportive and nurturing, and allows for a feeling of safety to surrender and to let go. Very relaxing, it works gently but deeply into the muscles using continuous flowing strokes nurturing the body.  

And it just feels WOW!

Reiki

Experience the body’s natural healing and balancing abilities

Reiki is a gentle non-invasive form of energy healing. It helps balance the body’s natural energies, relieving stress, assisting healing and well-being.

You may experience:

  • Increased energy and awareness
  • Feeling emotionally more balanced, and able to better manage emotions
  • Reduced or released stress
  • Accelerated healing or release of toxins
  • Relief from pain or discomfort
  • An elevated sense of well-being

I am an Advanced Practitioner, registered with the Reiki Association of South Africa, trained in USUI Shiki Ryoho (the more well-known “Western” style of Reiki), Karuna Reiki (also known as compassionate Reiki), and Jikiden Reiki (see below). I am happy to discuss the most suitable treatment for you.

Jikiden Reiki

Jikiden Reiki is the original Reiki, as it was in 1930s in Japan where it originated from. It feels pure and simple; a very powerful channeling of energy in a localised spot for a prolonged period of time. It is extremely effective in the case of an injury, illness, recovery from an operation or invasive procedures, or physical toxins. 

Core Regeneration Therapy (CRT)

Core Regeneration is a modality I often use in conjunction with other therapies, yet it can also be used as a stand-alone, and offers a profoundly insightful journey of discovery.

CRT is based on the presumption that the body-mind system was created with all the necessary resources to heal itself. This core energy is affected by blockages in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects. Balancing the mind-body system restores it to its natural state and results in a healthier and more relaxed client.

How it works
CRT is  system through which the body’s core energy is re-awakened. A practitioner takes their client on a healing journey to regenerate the body’s own healing abilities at core level. The practitioner uses a muscle test to gain access to the information required. I have already used it with the most wonderful results; the core energy of the body always direct you to affected areas.

What is Reiki?

Everything is energy. Our entire cosmos is made up of energy, and at the core, we are energy. Reiki taps into and channels the natural, divine life force energy into the body. The therapists’s hands are placed gently on or slightly above the body. The life force energy is channeled through the therapist into the receiver’s energy field.

A Reiki Practitioner undergoes an Attunement, connecting them to the spiritual energy, so they can effectively channel the universal or life force energy.
