Lisa is a Certified Human Potential Coach, a qualified and experienced teacher, a holistic naturopathic nutritional practitioner (DHNNP), arboriculturalist (tree & woodland management), horticulturalist, bee keeper and permaculturalist.  She is a member of the International Coaching Federation, and is working towards Associate Certified Coach status

She is a highly sensitive person (HSP - click here to learn more), a trauma survivor and thriver, a self confessed learning junkie, and a lover of humans and all things nature.

Lisa is very familiar with the written and meditative works of Dr. Joe Dispenza (as an Advanced Student) and Abraham Hicks, as well studying the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer and Baird T. Spalding, amongst many, many others.

Most importantly, she feels healed.  Emotionally, physically, energetically and spiritually.  What from?  Severe eco-anxiety and ecological grief, depression and suicidal ideation, graves thyroid disease, toxic thyroid nodules, goiter, coeliac disease, Raynaud's, severe asthma, histamine intolerance, chronic urticaria, mast cell activation disorder, mould toxicity and being very, very asleep.  What did I do?  I woke up and learned to love myself.  

What are my relevant life experiences in summary?

Tapping into life-giving health after an arduous, life-long past of ill health.

Designing conscious direction after being afloat for so long. 

Feeling in control of my destiny, instead of a slave to subconscious programming and trauma responses.

Being creative, energised and inspired after being destructive, depressed and stagnant.

Finding clarity, peace and connection to replace the overwhelm, anxiety and disconnection. 

Loving, embracing and feeling excitement for life in all its facets, despite a failed suicide attempt and life-long suicidal ideation.

 Having conscious passion for life after so much unfocused attention and misdirected motivation. 

Existing predominantly in a state of light-hearted joy after a life time of despair.

A thirst for clarity, energy and enchantment, in place of the numbing substance abuse of the past. 

Engaging my relationships with presence and compassion, after running from so many.

Tracking my energy capacity and knowledge levels so they continually evolve, allowing me to be the best version of myself.  

My past - running away to the wilderness

For 35 years I was ill, exhausted, lost, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, living alone in various countries on the other side of the world away from family and friends, struggling to connect with others, addicted to unhelpful material soothers and all of this with suicidal ideation (and a failed suicide attempt behind me). 

All the time I spent working for a living as an arborist and horticulturalist in nature, surely should have been healing on its own?

I wandered the world, changing friends, changing homes, changing jobs, doing courses, changing careers, volunteering, binge drinking, taking drugs, over eating, looking for something outside of myself to fill the void inside of me, and running myself into the ground, exhausted. Running away from the very problems my own travelling-within-me ego had created and continued to perpetuate.  Multiple periods of being recluse were the only things I felt saved me. 


A sliver of light

Just as I was about to give up, I found a holistic health practitioner in New Zealand. Her kindness and dietary advice helped with my physical symptoms for a little while, enough to find connection with a new group of compassionate and welcoming people.  I meditated, I went on silent retreats in the mountains, I followed Buddhist teachings, I learnt the principles of permaculture and I walked in nature.  I found I had the energy and renewed connection ability to return back to my family, friends and to connection in the UK. 

But it didn't last. 

A ray of light

So I went on a spiritual journey.  I read spiritual books, I did yoga, learnt more about meditation, learnt more about nature, I trained as a teacher, taught arboriculture, did courses in horticulture, teaching and Buddhism, I devoured endless streams of YouTube videos on self enrichment, followed anyone online who I thought might have the answers, anything I thought would feed my thirst for knowledge and to fill that void within.  And I got a little better.  Again.  

But again, it didn't last. 

The sun starts to rise

So, again, I chased another qualification; this time in holistic naturopathic nutrition. I ate pretty healthily (or so I thought), established new connections with family and friends, practiced more self-care, meditated even more and felt quite a bit better, until... again, it didn't last - and this time the illness and loneliness were worse than before.



Basking in the sun's full rays

QUESTION: So what did I discover that has led to my current health, joy and successful relationships?  


ANSWER: That I have all the answers that I need, that I AM the answer;

That I have all the power within me to be the best version of myself possible. 

That I am responsible for

my emotions (to nourish or to poison),

what I put in my body (to nourish or to poison),

what information I allow into my mind (to nourish or to poison),

the kind of people I spend time with and how we choose to nurture each other,

how I relate to others,

how present I am with nature,

the way I court and manage stress,

the high or low frequency vibrations I surround myself with

and the way I love myself and others.  

You can gain ideas and information from others, but it takes YOU KNOWING and LEARNING IT FOR YOURSELF for true insight and change, and that state of joy we're all searching for.  And the biggest way to love, light, health and happiness; is to know your true self and to love yourself unconditionally.  

So, what do you want to KNOW for YOURSELF?
