I was raised in a christian home with very beautiful, loving, nurturing and supportive parents, and two beautiful younger sisters, in whom I will be forever grateful. After leaving school, I pursued the life of a Custom Designer/Dressmaker for individuals and began my own business still running to this day, for over 35 years.
I married my first husband when I was 23yrs old, and had a certain perspective of teachings and beliefs that I had picked up over my years. And that was that as a woman, my role was mainly to get married and have kids and that the husband would be the head of the home having the last say in all decisions.
My distorted perspective, which I thought was normal, set me up to allow my husband to rule over me….to give in to things that did not sit right inside and submit to trying for children even though I had no desire for them. I was unable to see our marriage as an equal partnership. As our life unfolded together, no children happened, our careers grew stronger, and my goals did not seem to match the goals of my partner, and 14 years later we decided to part amicably.
After our separation, I moved to a new location in rural South Australia where my parents lived, and was taken under the wing of a christian group that they were involved with...Much love and care was there during that time of my brokenness. I submitted to their teachings of no remarriage and singleness for a time but after a while some of those teachings turned that made me feel very uncomfortable. I left the group, after 14 years.
Since then, I have met and married my best friend and soul mate Rodney.
He came with two handsome sons who love me for loving their Dad.
We now have 8 grandchildren whom I love and adore and living a life I never imagined could come true for me.
As life unfolded I began to search out to understand the programming of the mind and why people do what they do.
This led me to study and now I am a qualified Neuro Linguistic Programme and Matrix therapies Practitioner, a Life Coach and a Counsellor, a School Mentor for children and a strong advocate and support for people taking responsibility for their lives and choices, our beautiful earth and all its inhabitants.
