I was born in Cape Town, South Africa, where I grew up and completed a B.Accounting degree at Stellenbosch University. To be honest, I had no idea what career I wanted to pursue, and after 5 years of almost no job satisfaction, I emigrated to Taiwan in 2006 to happily teach English for just over a year. However, in 2007 I was lured back into the corporate world and a lucrative wealth management career in Shanghai. After making little progress, I ended up in Hong Kong with no clear direction or motivation in life, until I finally quit and left the corporate in 2014. This final surrender and letting go of a painful past and false 'sense-of-self', taught and allowed me to discover my passion for Energy Healing. It inspired me to pursue a coaching career and show other entrepreneurs, and any life passion-seekers how to also energetically remove their own money blocks.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
