“"I support anyone Impacted by Trauma to Live a Stress-Free Life by discovering how to let go of the past and heal their mind and body."”


About Me

In 2002, having previously lived and worked in many countries, I was enjoying a happy and healthy life back in London, until I attended a BBQ that changed my life forever.

I started to experience a range of severe symptoms and eventually took myself to see a Gastrologist because the local doctor and hospital couldn’t find what was wrong with me. I had contracted Campylobacter and Helicobacter which attacked my autoimmune system, brain, gut, certain arteries, and spine and ignited the onset of accelerated osteoarthritis resulting in multiple surgeries over a period of 15 years.

Debilitating pain, weakness, feeling overwhelmed, guilt, my loss of self, and wondering who I was, finally drove me to make changes in my life. I no longer wanted to be friends with walking sticks and wheelchairs. Having lost my job as a result of this, I re-trained and took a Masters in Coaching & Mentoring Practices. I was determined to make something of my life, manage my symptoms, and understand the psychology behind the science of the body’s own healing potential from the inside out.

This lightbulb moment helped me to realize I had been living in a dysregulated state for 20+ years. My body was alive with trauma, anger, stress, chronic pain, and guilt.

Today I cannot explain how I feel after so many years of struggling. I found a way to heal my body and mind, and my purpose now is to share this gift and work with others to support and help them live a healthier, symptom and stress-free life.

Short additional background:

I was born in London, United Kingdom, into a traditional Polish family who were first generation WWII refugees.  I moved to Poland in 2017 and live in the tri-city area of Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia on the Baltic Coast. I love the Sea and the Forest and living in the Spa town of Sopot I now have the best of both these worlds. Long walks along the beach and forest in the surrounding hills with my husband Marc and Biewer Terrier Huxley, help clear my mind, reflect and get in touch with my thoughts and with nature.
