Hi there, I'm Olivia. Breathwork Facilitator. Women's Circle Holder. Intuitive Artist. Self-Healer. Sober Warrior.
I believe deeply that we are our own healers and I'm here to show you how to access the heart medicine within you, to guide you home within yourself.
For over two decades I considered myself irrevocably broken, clinging to the belief that I’d be forever lost in an abyss of self-destruction and despair. From the age of twelve I felt suicidal and within a few short years I’d discovered what I believed to be my elixir: alcohol.
In some ways drinking saved me from myself – it quickly became my survival strategy and provided what felt like a glorious reprieve from my tortuous thoughts and immeasurable pain, but any relief was temporary and I sank rapidly and helplessly into the quicksand of addiction.
I also started self-harming and so began my 11 year battle with another utterly heart-breaking, violent ‘coping mechanism’. What seemed at the time to provide a release from my emotional pain only served to strangle my emotional growth.
I learned to self-medicate and smother every single emotion I ever had, resulting in an endless well of unfelt, unprocessed pain.
I was a walking wound – explosively angry, volatile and unpredictable. My inner landscape was dark and turbulent, the very antithesis of peace and harmony.
Then one day I woke up (with the worst hangover of my life) and I was just done. I was spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically bereft and knew I couldn’t live like this anymore. I couldn’t visualise another way of life, I couldn’t visualise what healing would look like or feel like, but the gaping hole in my soul was screaming to be filled by something else. I knew I couldn’t do it on my own. I needed help.
Through Breathwork I experienced energetic sensations and emotional revelations where there was pain and indecision, profound inspiration & direction where there was emptiness and stagnancy, and awe-inspiring expansion with floods of self-love where there was constriction and despair.
Self-love, self-compassion and self-acceptance no longer seemed like illusory ideations and instead became my reality. I no longer needed fixing because I wasn’t broken. I never was. A feeling of wholeness started to fill the hole in my soul as I learned to embrace all the parts of me, my light and my shadow.
If you’d like to work together, you can schedule a Breathwork session with me here.
Or message me with any questions.
Together we will uncover where you’d like to heal and grow. As a Breathwork facilitator my role is to hold space for you – to be fully present alongside you in your unfolding, in your journey, without judgment or trying to fix you. The space I hold with my heart is entirely yours.
