Is people pleasing ruining your life?

Is people pleasing ruining your life?

For all of the burnout out, overwhelmed, people pleasing women: If you ever find yourself tiring of how people treat you, or what they expect of you; if you feel like you’re constantly pleasing everybody but yourself … I see you, I hear you, I feel you.  Lately in my life, I have been absolutely SLAMMED with the lesson of learning...

Adrenal fatigue (HPA-axis dysfunction), and what to do about it.

Adrenal fatigue, more correctly described as ‘HPA-axis dysfunction’,  is the most common scenario that I see as a Naturopath in a clinical setting.  Modern life offers us many perks, but one of the downfalls is that collectively, our health is suffering – and so often, this is simply from burning the candle at both ends, being too busy, and never slowing...

What my psychic told me

What my psychic told me (it will help you, too).

Do you really struggle to say no, and have firm boundaries with people?  Do you give, give, give – and sometimes allow yourself to get a little bit taken advantage of?  Me, too. It’s something I’ve been working on for a long time and it’s something that comes up for women in nearly ALL my client sessions. If you’ve been...

‘It just is’ – a mantra that will move you through anything.

Years ago, when I lived in Perth, I used to visit a very wise and dear reiki therapist, who continually tried to teach my 23-year-old self one very important lesson: That sometimes, ‘it just is’. 8 years later, I feel like I’m *finally* starting to get it. ‘It just is’. Life delivers us circumstances, events, people … that are beyond...

Sensitive

If you’ve ever been called ‘too sensitive and emotional’.

For much of my life, I was ashamed of my sensitive and introverted nature.  I was easily affected by things; I didn’t seem to be able to ‘cope’ with as much as other people around me could; I often felt a sense of sadness and disconnection in normal everyday situations; and I wore my heart 100% on my sleeve, unable...

Why you need to be ok with 'letting people down'

Why you need to be ok with ‘letting people down’.

Do you constantly bend yourself backwards in order to ‘not let anyone down’? Like many women, I spent most of my life as a rather chronic people pleaser. There were two things that used to majorly hold me back from wellness and soul fulfilment: 1. My fear of ‘letting people down’ 2. My fear of people ‘not liking me’ I...

Why you need to love your liver

Why you need to love your liver.

Why you need to love your liver. If you’re working on getting your hormones back to a healthy, happy, balanced state – chances are, you may need to give your amazing liver a little (or a lot!) of love. The liver truly is a powerhouse organ within the body. It is constantly keeping us alive by filtering out and eliminating...

How to look after yourself when you’re a sensitive and introverted soul.

As a classic introvert (and rather sensitive soul), I find the chaos and excessive busyness of modern life somewhat ridiculous – and perhaps you can relate. Trying to be truly well in a hyper-connected world, is no easy feat. Most of us are literally available – in some way – 24/7 (and deep down, we feel guilty when we’re not)....

Women and martyrdom (and why we need to stop).

Women have long since derived satisfaction from doing things for others. We feel pleased when we please others. We like to be selfless. But in the pursuit of making sure every single person is ok, we have to be very careful not to become stuck in the grips of martyrdom and resentment. Because, this happens very easily, and it takes...

Coming off the pill? Here’s what you should know.

Lately I’ve had an abundance of women, from all walks of my life, talk to me about coming off the oral contraceptive pill. As a naturopath, this please me VERY much, because I know how much life can change when you move away from synthetic hormones and allow your own, natural hormones to kick back in, and naturally balance. HOWEVER,...
