About Me

Hi, I’m Emma.

Wife, Mother, Nurse of 22 years and Priestess of Shadows (What? We’ll get to that later).

I’ve been caring for, protecting and soothing people my entire life. But I didn’t realise that I was doing so at the expense of myself. Up to my eyes in the prescriptions of others I had failed to notice the toxic, misdiagnosed prescription I was taking myself:

Wake up, sacrifice your every need for others, if possible, sleep again. Repeat daily for 50-60 years”. 

I hadn’t realised there was anything wrong with this until I found myself in the depths of chronic illness, postnatal depression, a complete unravelling of my self esteem and self worth, and my relationship in tatters.

I was broken, any hope of change completely cast dark by the shadows of life. Until I realised those shadows were my power. They were my opportunity to explore, question, unravel everything I had been taught and nurture the parts of me that KNEW it could be different.

I hadn’t realised there was anything wrong with this until I found myself in the depths of chronic illness, postnatal depression, a complete unravelling of my self esteem and self worth, and my relationship in tatters.

I was broken, any hope of change completely cast dark by the shadows of life. Until I realised those shadows were my power. They were my opportunity to explore, question, unravel everything I had been taught and nurture the parts of me that KNEW it could be different.

The shadows built my strength in a way the perfect career never could.

What I thought had stripped me of hope and resilience turned out to be the very thing that restored me to my natural power.

I sat in the shadows, felt EVERYTHING, prescribed myself the right to choose, create and take control.

And I rose, accepting all challenges as nothing more than opportunities to learn, grow and expand further into my ultimate vision. The vision that calls for me to help you make this transformation too. 

Now, with my relationship healed and stronger than ever, illness a thing of the past and standing in my power as Priestess of Shadows, I want to gift you with care, protection and nourishment. But not the kind we’ve been taught is the only acceptable form of giving, the one that depletes us until we have nothing left.

I want to gift you with the nourishment you have inside of yourself.

The one that allows you to take care of others AND yourself. I want to guide you through your own shadows so you can see that there IS another way, there IS more, and you get to have it all.  

From the umbrage of life’s prescription emerges the brightest of colours. A life of my own creation, one I get to pass on to my children, showing them that life is there to be LIVED, to be experienced and to be felt in all its glory.
