About

Don’t you just want to leap out of bed every morning, really looking forward to the day ahead?

Once you start working with your mindset, your own energy and the ancient energy cycles of nature, you’re going to love

dusting off those long-neglected dreams 

eliminating the blocks and beliefs that are keeping you stuck

realising it’s you in charge now

saying goodbye to drama, disappointment, and disillusion, and

actively living with gratitude rather than focusing on lack.

Why Choose Me?

 

In my lifetime, there have been three things that have grabbed my attention and imagination, and I knew instantly that I had to learn or experience them.

The first, was school teaching.
I loved it for years, but finally I had to choose – my soul and my sanity, or the job?

I chose myself

– and as often happens when you do that, it didn’t go down well!

The first job offered to me that had a decent wage, was as a receptionist in a local dental practice.
There was no room there for enthusing students, or seeing little faces light up in delight at learning.
It was fast, pressured and full of clients brought there mainly by pain or fear.
But like teaching, there were plenty of opportunities to practice empathy and compassion, and to learn to really listen.

Now that my weekends were free (no schoolwork to do!), I dug deeper into my interests in alternative and complementary health.
I qualified in Auric-Magnetic Healing to Level 2; Usui Shiki Ryohi Reiki to Level 2; and Foot Reading.

Yes, Foot Reading really is a thing!

Astrology, Flower Essences and what I now call New Moon Alchemy were in the mix, too – not all at once, obviously – and I’m a graduate of Doreen Virtue’s ‘Angel Intuitive’ course.

That’s when the second of those three Must-Do’s leapt into my awareness – Reflexology.

I trained to professional level, and ultimately left the dental job to go into business for myself.
Did you know that your feet clearly tell the story of how you interact with  – or react to – life?
I noticed that many women felt trapped by circumstances and were anxious, unsure and indecisive about their way forward – and their feet showed that.

When arthritis took away my ability to do Reflexology easily, I combined my interests and professional trainings to help women ready for change, on their journeys of self-discovery and transformation.
And here I am.

Oh yes – my third Must-Do.

Andrea on the CaminoI have earned my Compostela – the document awarded by Church authorities in Spain – for walking the Camino de Santiago.
The walking bit was easy.
But my bag never arrived in Spain, and I quickly learned to make do with little more than I stood up in!
This is me, on the outskirts of Santiago de Compostela near the end of the Camino.

My home and on-line-working-space is in Feilding in New Zealand’s Manawatu, with a fine view of the Ruahine Ranges by day and huge starry skies by night.
In ‘other news’, I have officiated at a funeral, and I have presented at a worldwide Women’s Empowerment Summit.

Things I Love to Love

  Maths.
When I was still teaching, maths was my favourite subject.
To see the look on a child’s face who has just ‘got it’ is pure magic.
I miss that.

Teaching.
Anyone, anything.

Instant coffee.
Barista-made is great, but instant does it for me every time.

Chardonnay.
A good gutsy New Zealand one, with colour and aroma to die for.

Summer.
Sunshine, cricket and beaches.
Obviously a Kiwi!

Granddaughters.
I never realised how much joy and richness grandkids could add to life, until mine arrived.

And reading.
In the sun, or by the fire.
A really good thick paper book – thick enough to prop up the coffee table, not just decorate it.
None of this screen reading nonsense for me, either.
Historical fiction, and some fantasy series, are my favourite genres.
Diana Gabaldon, Robin Hobb, Philippa Gregory, James A Michener, Freddy Silva ….. and lots more.
