About me

I am of Kenyan/German origin and grew up mainly in Nairobi, Kenya. I attended different education systems (Montessori, Kenyan and British) in different cultural and multicultural settings.

My body was of central importance on my own journey to my true self and the life path I am now on. It was only when I started to connect to its wisdom, stories and solutions that I was able to really see what I needed, what was holding me back and what I wanted in my life and to consequently develop the courage to live from a place of the heart and my core wisdom. I am grateful for all of my experiences and ‘stopovers’ along the way to finding and creating my truly aligned path, as they give me a good foundation for my work.
I hope that with all that I bring and have learned I can contribute to helping people find back to their bodies, their hearts and the song of their souls and inner wisdom more quickly and easily.
