There are many things you do not know about me and I’m a little apprehensive to share this.
I believe the pain, darkness and hurt we go through in life are hurdles we overcome to help us grow mentally, spiritually and emotionally. They help our evolution.
We all hurt and will all experience pain so remember no matter what you are never alone and should NEVER feel ashamed or embarrassed of your journey.
I have openly grieved and spoke out about my process from loosing my dad to cancer last year on social media. When I did that I realised we all have so much more in common then we think. By being vulnerable it allowed others to reach out to me. It created communication, love, support and community and this is what I want to do by holding space with sound healing and ceremonies.
So, here’s a few things you may not know about me.
At 16 a bf made a comment of ‘you would look so much better if you lost a little bit of weight’. 🙄 let’s now welcome bulimia for many years after!!
Before this point I never viewed my body in a negative way or ever felt insecure. After that, I struggled with bulimia for years. I lost so much weight at one point my family were worried and rightly so, I was skeletal. Even when I gained weight, throughout my 20s I really struggled with my body and acceptance of it. I hated my body for a very long time.
18 I moved out of home on bad terms and suffered from my first experience with depression and anxiety. I even had suicidal thoughts that’s how bad it got. A friend picked me up after trying to over dose on painkillers. 18 was a very dark chapter in my life. I was in college 5 days a week and worked the weekends and lived off £320 per month when my rent was £120. This was the moment in my life where I felt completely ALONE.
I suffer from alopecia in moments of high stress and also experience stomach problems IE leaky gut, Candida and I am gluten and dairy intolerant as I over used antibiotics several years ago from reacquiring cystitis. I have cured my health through food and supplementation. I’m a HUGE believer we are what we eat and that our bodies are built to heal.
