Hello – what brings you here?

If we haven’t yet met and you are here for the first time, well …what an interesting time it is to be connecting.
HELLO! It is February 2021 at the time of writing this, and I have been through a wonderful upheaval and transition this past year. You too? I took some much needed time off mid-year and embarked on an intentional pilgrimage (aka personal retreat) to a wee, remote Scottish Isle and feel as if I shed many, many skins in the process.

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 heartfelt sharing of that retreat 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 support you to find a proud sense of yourself again.

To get closure, pause, and then re-dream your future. I have helped clients, for the past 18 years, to 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, yes to a new a job, leaving a country, facing 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 also about finding your way to sit in the sticky middle, the gap, the unknown. That potentially dreadful and uncomfortable place we do not find it easy to sit with. We want to chase after the 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 world trip. Perhaps do what I have done for the past 5 years and live #LocationFree globally, or to speak on stage, start your family, finally stand up for yourself,  accept that invitation to the dinner party upstairs, 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, then chances are you are over 40, a little bored, stressed and KNOW in your heart there is more to life. But you are too stuck, scared or exhausted 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 your life and activate your dreams.

I am known to yackety yack quite a lot on TV, radio and podcasts and share my “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 social media links above. 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 (bespoke exclusive retreats online for now), group retreats, writing residencies and spend a lot of time writing. I used to work extensively in the online space running groups, masterminds and mentorships for the past 15 years, but I am zigging while everyone else is zagging. Yes, I get the irony in these times where working with groups online seems to be all anyone can talk about – but I’m moving into my next phase! I prefer to offer more of my work heart to heart now, so am working wth less people (rather than more) yet at a deeper level.

Sound cool?
