"Change does not lie out there, it starts and lies within us. "
Here I was, all ready to settle down in life with my amazing husband in a beautiful country. I felt that life had thrown enough curveballs in my direction previously, and it was finally my time to shine.
I had no illnesses, well..nothing major. I was eating healthy, meditating daily, loving my workouts and loving my job and so content that I had everything that I could imagine.
Then, out of the blue, I feel the lump. And I just KNEW that something was terribly wrong.
I have seen Cancer in every possible way. I have felt it, I have biopsied it, I have operated on it. I have had to tell the mother that her 7 year old son has Stage 3 Cancer. I have had to tell the 24 year old breastfeeding mother that the ulcer growing in her mouth is Cancer. I have seen Cancer come back in the most unexpected ferocious ways, when we thought we had done everything that the books had asked us to.
I have seen Cancer in my family. I have lost my grandmother to it. I lost my favourite uncle to it. The closest it came to me before I myself was diagnosed, was when my husband had a brain tumour. The fact that it was not cancer did not make it much less impactful.
I have been an Ear, Nose & Throat Surgeon from 1999-2017. During this, I have been actively involved in the teachings, research and treatment of complex Sleep Disorders in my practice.
I also qualified as an ICF accredited Life Coach in 2017 and have undergone a rigorous 6 month mentoring to become a Cancer Coach. I am also a Patient Navigator under the Society of Integrative Oncology as well as work as a Senior Patient Navigator at Auckland Sleep Centre.
I have been featured in numerous Podcasts & International Summits. I have also contributed for Thrive Global and am a Bestselling Author.
As a cancer survivor myself, I know that if there is one thing I could change while I was undergoing treatment, it would be getting a Coach for myself.
Let me help you. I know the complexities around Sleep and my unique integrative approach will help you to get back your sleep. I know that if I can do it, so can you.
