An interest in human behaviour combined with the innate knowing that there is more to human connection than is the current social standard drove me to dive deep into intimacy and love, which absolutely must begin with self. My purpose in life is to facilitate space for those who have similar enquiries of self and the art of relating to others.
I hold a solid understanding in literature and philosophies pertaining to Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA).
I possess an accurate understanding of dysfunctional families and associated generational trauma.
I continually apply myself to studies of;
Behavioural Psychology, Positive Psychology and Counselling
Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama (breath work) and Classical Tantra
The connection between the Body, Mind and Soul on an anatomical, physiological,
psychological and neurobiological level.

for singles and couples who have a desire to connect deeper with self and others via neo-tantric practices.
