My Approach & Values

My What — What do I do?

I help others recognise their patterns, blockages, negative beliefs and deep core wounds and I support them to heal, cleanse and release all that does not serve them.

My Why – Why do I do what I do?

I believe my work contributes to the healing of the planet, by raising vibrations, one emotion, one belief, one heart at a time.

My How — I use guided meditations, inner child healing treatments, supportive intuitive counselling and traditional Psychological therapies.

My Gifts — A listening ear. A compassionate heart. New perspectives. Ideas, challenges, hope, support, love and care. I see the bigger picture. I inspire, illumine, nurture and empower. I point the way to your Soul.

A lifetime of experience!

Barb currently lives on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland. She loves the simple joys in life: walks on the beach, conversations over a coffee or meal, having a massage, watching the sunset and the full moon rise, traveling to new places & experiencing new things, connecting & sharing stories with newfound friends, hanging out in her garden, going on rainforest walks, snorkeling, practicing yoga with others, sitting around an outdoor fire with friends. In short, Barb loves tapping into “flow,” living in the moment, finding her bliss in the simplicity and beauty of life.
