My Story: SELF CARE, in order to SHARE
When Connor was born in 2006, I didn’t know I’d shift from Architect to Health Coach years later. Without going into the gory details, just know that I found help in the MINDFULNESS that I talk about in other pages of this site. It was likely YOGA that helped me actually listen to my body in the first place. Then, as I researched the biology of autism, I discovered how powerful NUTRITION is and how it could heal us in various ways.
Now, as I feel a bit more at peace, I want to help other parents who struggle with STRESS and especially the extra layers of worry and heartache that come from ASD children. Of course the best way to feel better is our kids feeling great … but meanwhile, we can be our strongest selves with calm peaceful energy for our families. So, please, dig into some resources here and send me a message about what you think might work for you.
My VIDEOS & AUDIOS: How I DE-Stress
These videos talk about each theme from the book sections, sharing stories and coping strategies. Of course we all have different details but could all use some calming mind-frames.
These audio clips are guided visualisations that help us in a number of ways.
