Open To Life online program

Struggling to have a baby is a devastatingly lonely and grief-stricken path.

 

It’s the kind of life crisis that requires us to draw on skills that we’re rarely taught in life.

With everything that infertility demands of us, it can feel too overwhelming to seek out and implement new ways of dealing with a challenging journey to motherhood on our own.

 

This is where seeking the guidance of someone who has walked the path before you can really be of help. Someone who not only has first-hand experience, but who also has the expertise and qualifications to be able to support you in a meaningful way.

Welcome to the Open to Life signature online program.

Maybe you find yourself here because…

 

  • You’re overwhelmed by grief and anxiety and it’s making it difficult for you to function in your daily life
     

  • You're tired of suffering in silence and the strain that your situation places on  your relationships

  • ​You're overcome by feelings of shame, guilt and worthlessness

  • You’re struggling to make confident decisions about how to move forward

  • You’re clinging to your current path, unable to open to alternative paths to motherhood
     

  • You're unable to find the support you need from someone who not only has the skills and professional experience, but who truly understands what it's like to walk in your shoes​

  • You’re desperate to get your life back and to start feeling like you again

I can relate to all these feelings and more as I experienced them all on my own 10-year journey to motherhood.  What I want you to know is that it is possible to transform yourself and your life without having your baby first. This is what the Open to Life program is all about.

How the Open to Life program can support you…
ISS-Wellness-Mindful-Living-19.jpg

Drawing on my first-hand experience around what it’s like to struggle to become a mother with the expertise I’ve gained through 20+ years of teaching, guiding and supporting others, I created offerings that draw on the kind of knowledge, wisdom, and support that I wish someone could have offered me when I was in my darkest place.

 

Combining leading-edge psychology-based practices with the wisdom of ancient philosophies, I have created Open to Life's online programs.

 

Open to Life’s online program can support you with…

 

  • Improving your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, irrespective of the challenges you may face on your path to parenthood

 

  • Changing your inherent thought patterns and re-wiring your brain so your habitual thinking is working for you, not against you

 

  • Helping you to manage the anxiety associated with stressful fertility treatments (e.g. IVF) or complex surrogacy or egg donation processes by recalibrating your nervous system

 

  • Providing you with the skills to face even your darkest emotions so they no longer have a hold over you

 

  • Transforming your relationship with yourself from one of self-loathing to one of compassion and self-love

 

  • Supporting you with how to surrender and let go of the futile struggle to control every facet of trying to have a baby so you can allow the path to flow more effortlessly for you.

  • Teaching you to make your best decisions from a place of clarity and inner-wisdom so you can move forward with clarity and confidence

  • Enabling you to open to alternative paths to parenthood that could see you having your baby sooner
