I love working with women that have the strategies to be successful in private practice but haven't yet been able to implement them effectively. I show you how to create your unique action steps so that you can bring the practice back into alignment and experience the outcomes that you desire.
This is a transformational podcast just for women in private practice to help them develop their competence, confidence and consciousness in business using a spiritual lens. Available on Apple Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Spotify, Podbean, Stitcher, and your favourite podcast platform.
From a young age, I’d held a curiosity about spiritual things. I can remember being about nine years old when I first saw mum looking at her tarot cards. I didn’t really understand what she was doing but watching her, I felt as if I was ‘home’ in a way. This sparked a desire for me to learn more and more and before I was a teenager, I’d accumulated a wealth of books, tarot decks, oracle decks, rune stones, crystals, journals, essential oils, guided meditation tapes and more. I was hooked and it was during my late adolescence that I realised that for me, these items were special tools that I could use to help people. I became increasingly aware that I wanted to provide guidance, assurance, care and compassion and help others to find their inner calm too. With that in mind, psychology was at the time an organic next step and so I knuckled down and put myself through 14 years of University.
I saw my first counselling client in 1993 but the real story started in 2018. I’d been invited to join a Facebook group for Psychologists and within a matter of a few weeks, my world had been turned upside down. Changes were afoot within the profession that would and could significantly impact the way that I and others were working. In that moment of reading the post, my identity was torn away.
A sense of powerlessness and doom immediately crept in and I remember crawling into bed and just crying. How could this be happening? Picking up my iPhone, I began looking for answers about what I should do next and when I couldn’t think of the right questions to type into Google, I found myself hunting for more spiritually-inclined guidance. This was the turning point.
Without realising it, hours had gone past and I’d devoured anything I could find about rune stones, tarot, journaling, manifestation and of course, law of attraction. It all made so much sense that in that moment, I had clarity. I just knew that I was born for this. The information I read on manifestation and law of attraction especially tied perfectly into my knowledge as a Psychologist and the tools of meditation, relaxation, grounding, routines and writing also tied beautifully in with my background. It was as if someone had just turned on the light and I could actually see my purpose; what I was here to do, who I was here to help and how I would help them. And it meant leaving my career over 20+ years as a Psychologist.
The next few years were filled with adventures to all parts of the world in search of spiritual leaders, knowledge, tools, rituals, processes and understanding. My thirst for learning led me to places like Marrakesh, Morocco, Dubai, Sharjah, Jordan and Petra, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Mount Everest and the Himalaya, Greece and Egypt. It was as if I was obsessed with acquiring as much knowledge as I could, integrating it with what I already knew about the mind, body and spirit and bringing that understanding home where I could draw upon it in my work with clients.
Because, despite having completed my PhD in evidence-based interventions for anxiety and depression, I never truly felt that a standardised, one-shoe-fits-all approach to care was a good fit for me or my clients. I believe that each client is unique and presents their own set of challenges, problems and issues that they want to work through and I wanted to help them be able to do that in a way that resonated with them on a deeper level.
And so I let go of the Psychologist role. I was so nervous about doing that and wondered if anyone would still book appointments and if I’d be able to pay the mortgage. I updated the website to reflect the new direction of the practice, then I emailed my clients and I posted updates on social media. It was really scary because I didn’t know what would happen. But guess what did happen?! The next day, I woke up and checked my messages and not one, not two but three new clients had booked in FOR my spiritual counselling! It was a sign from the Universe that I was on the right track and I was so excited that I was dancing around the room in utter glee. And when I met each of those clients, it was powerful and energizing.
Being able to work with the freedom to discuss things like intuition, expansion of awareness, alignment, purpose and so much more was incredible and I remember the feeling of knowing that this was what I was meant to be doing. This was my purpose. That I was living it now. Clients shared their experience of counselling with their friends and they began booking sessions too. It was like next-level abundance in so many ways and I’ve never looked back. Living in alignment empowered me to step boldly into my purpose and I want that for you too.
