Hi, I’m Anna.
I'm here to help you overcome anxiety, stress and overwhelm using simple strategies that stick.
I want to share a little more about me to help you understand what it is you might get out of working with me…
- I’m a Wellness Coach & a Breathwork Facilitator
- I hold a certificate in Nutrition
- I'm a Generator in human design, an Aries sun, Aries moon & Scorpio Rising
- A Hairstylist
- And a Mum to two beautiful boys
I'm constantly learning how to improve our state of being and find our physical, mental and emotional state are all interconnected and all need to be worked on.
I’ve been a hairstylist for the past 20 years and for the past 12 years I have also been learning about meditation, nutrition, exercise, coaching and more recently breathwork.
iIn my early 20s I experienced severe anxiety, not just once but for a couple of years. And it was really horrible. Eventually my anxiety set me on a path of change, growth, learning and personal development.
Anxiety opened me up to a world of meditation, yoga, natural medicine, kinesiology, self-help, mentoring, farmers markets, podcasts, exercise and SO. MUCH. MORE.
Before that, I was probably doing the polar opposite of everything mentioned above AND I thought people who did that stuff were kind of weird...LOL. I was working hard in my 40 hour a week hairdressing job AND partying hard. Eating crap, and living very unhealthily. Just being a normal young twenty something really who didn't realise how bad her anxiety was about to get.
My anxiety got so bad that I couldn’t work, drive or even be alone.
Panic attacks, fear and anxiety were a daily occurence in my life.
Back then, nobody was talking about anxiety. It wasn't that long ago yet the conversation around mental health has definitely become more open, even though as a society we still have a long way to go.
Anyway, I made sure to keep it mostly to myself, only my close friends and family really knew what was going on. As you can imagine, this was a really difficult time for me.
One day – I’d had enough. I wanted to feel normal again. I put on my research hat and started experimenting with things that were said to make anxiety better. I was drawn towards Natural Health and Alternative Therapies and so I sought out Practitioners, read books and tried anything I could to not feel so miserable and alone.
This journey I have been on has taught me how to overcome those anxious feelings, what I needed to change and implement in my life to get there and now I use these tools and all of my experience to help women who are feeling how I was back then. Stressed, anxious, unworthy and all of the things.....I was able to go from fast food eating, smoker and drinker to nutrition expert, yogi & meditator. I had a new support team including my gym, essential oils, a Naturopath and a Kinesiologist. It took a while but eventually I started to feel better. AND IF I CAN, SO CAN YOU!
You are probably thinking, but I hate the gym? And what on earth is a Kinesiologist? I know, prior to my experience with anxiety I was NOT into health and wellness either. But as I felt less anxious, I grew excited about the possibilities that lay ahead.
I’ve always been very interested in spirituality in one way or another and I spent many days in fairy shops as a child looking at crystals, cards and witchy books…so in hindsight this holistic work was always somewhere buried in the back of my mind (and heart).
Now, I like to look at my battles with anxiety as a blessing because it has brought me to where I am today…A coach and a breathwork facilitator with a passion to support women to feel their absolute best.
I believe in progress, not perfection and I believe every small step you take towards a better life is all you need to get where you need to go.
My mission is to help you on your path to wellness so you can get on and live a happier, healthier life.
