Kirstie is a conscious, nurturing mother of two strong women, grandmother of two star children and partner to the big hearted Paul.
She lives on GunaiKurnai country, nestled in the hills of far East Gippsland, enjoying a grounded, simple life and a wine or two.
It is from here that she loves taking care of her growing family, creating a home of love and community, where people congregate in deep, soulful connection.
Kirstie's journey of healing through trauma has been diverse. Growing up in an alcoholic home, Kirstie observed the strength of her mother to make the empowering decision to leave.
Diagnosed with post natal depression, Ross River virus and chronic fatigue syndrome after the birth of her youngest daughter, Kirstie started exploring natural therapies, meditation, massage therapy, Reiki and yoga as a means to self-heal. This led her to study psychotherapy, massage, Reiki, life coaching, alternative therapies and yoga. From here Kirstie started her own small business, running healing sessions from her home.
Returning to the workforce, Kirstie moved up into senior management roles, only to have her world come crashing down due to extreme stress, adrenal fatigue and finally a freeze response to her trauma.
Due to her own personal experiences of trauma, anxiety and the black dog, Kirstie is now called to work with clients that are ready to work through their own stories of the shadow self, trauma and anxiety.
Kirstie is a creatrix, she-wolf and pioneer. Her work is soulful and deep, supporting her tribe to see the deep power they hold, reclaim it and live it every day. This entails supporting her clients explore their shadow self, to move through their trauma, adversity, mental illness and the stories they tell themselves.
Kirstie's mission: help people to explore the shadow, reclaim their personal power and voice so that they can live an authentic, passionate and heart-centred life, fully free.
My experience has been built over 20 years as a result of my own healing journey. Starting off in massage and expanding out to yoga instructing and teaching. More recently returning to study dance therapy and shadow work.
