Hello – what brings you here?

If we haven’t yet met and you are just checking me and my stuff out for the first time, well …what an interesting time it is to be connecting – HELLO! It is mid-August 2020 at the time of writing this, and I have just been through my own major upheaval and transition. I embarked on an intentional pilgrimage (retreat) to a wee, remote Scottish Isle  and feel as if I shed many skins in the process.  I am still busy updating my website to align with, and reflect how I will be working going forward, to bring my best self to my life, the world and you.

Here is where I am right now…

The sparkle of possibility exists in the gap between NO LONGER …and …NOT YET. You can read my latest heartfelt sharing here to get a sense of the depth of work I do and what exactly I did on this Isle of Iona. I respect the real power that emerges from letting go: whether physical, body, emotional, mental or spiritual. The intense ritual of letting go and getting closure creates space – what I called The Gap that exists before you can decide what to ‘call’ into your life next. My experience, both professionally, in business and simply the way I have embraced this thing called life, might just be the tonic and support you need at this time in your life?

I can help you get closure, pause, and then re-dream your future. I have helped clients for the past 17 years, be bold and brave and say YES to the right things. To cross those pivotal thresholds and take that leap. That may mean various things – walking away from a partner, a job, a country, retrenchment, selling a home, saying no – or any other manner of things that involve change, moving on, or a massive upheaval and rift in identity. It is about finding your way to sit in the sticky middle, the gap, the unknown. That potentially dreadful and uncomfortable place with hints of peace floating about the periphery.

The next step might involve getting stuck into what really matters: finally writing your book or blog, starting that business or taking that trip. Perhaps do what I have done for the past 5 years and live location free globally, or to speak on stage, or stand up for yourself, accept that invitation to the dinner party upstairs. To become that artist that resides in your heart or go on that date :)

To just live your life! With pride, delight and a sense of purpose. Step into your power & shine your light.

I am known as the QUICKSHIFT DEVA – yes that’s Deva with an E which means “shining one” – and I get my kicks out of supporting you to SHIFT your life in order to “LIVE LIGHT, LIVE LARGE”.

You might be drawn to RETREAT with me if you are: 
*At a huge crossroads in your life.
*What used to work no longer does, but you’re not yet sure what is next.
* Needing to take some TIME OUT and find a way to listen to your heart again?
* Wish to honor the call deep inside you – the one that usually gets pushed swiftly to the bottom of the priority list?

We are terrified of that GAP after NO LONGER, aren’t we?

If you are still reading, chances are you are over 40, probably female (but guys are very here welcome too!), a little bored and stressed and KNOW in your heart there is more to life. But you are too stuck and exhausted in your ways to do anything about it. Sound familiar?

Maybe it’s all feeling a bit BLEH, to be honest?

I am becoming more and more fascinated with the power of creating shifts through the counter-intuitive idea of slowing down, detoxing (both body and tech) and pressing PAUSE in order to PONDER what truly matters. Then from that place of mindful stillness, you can weave your way back into our life and activate your dreams.

I am known to yackety yack (talk) quite a lot on TV, radio, and dole out my “dubiously expert” opinion in Magazines or my blog. You can see some of those on the media hub page, watch my videos on my YouTube Channel or gently stalk me. Mostly I love traveling around the world writing, watching sunrises, swimming, dancing, running retreats, and looking for heart-shaped rocks.

I offer VIP private retreats, group retreats, writing residencies and spend a lot of time writing. I used to work a LOT in the online space for the past 15 years, but I am zigging while everyone else is zagging, and am NOT working as much in that way anymore. Yes, I get the irony in these times where working online seems to be all anyone can talk about – but I’m moving into my next phase! I prefer to do work face to face, heart to heart!

Sound cool? Then maybe you want to stick around.

You can drop me a mail and tell me bit about how I can help, or better yet, simply sign up for a short complimentary series  where I share some ideas about slowing down, titled THE STRATEGIC POWER OF DISCONNECTING and let’s take it from there!

The Strategic Power of Disconnecting

I’d love to share my increasing passion about the Counter-Intuitive Art of Slow. Helping you understand the very opposite of what we view as “productivity” and realising why it’s more important to take TIME OUT. How to disconnect in order to deeply re-connect to what matters. I’ll share how to embrace simplicity, be your own #CalmBalm, and the art of saying NO when it matters.
