"Working with Yve enables a gentle entry into the core of emotional triggers and relationship dynamics, examining ‘jagged edges’ and releasing pain. I found it to be deeply healing, especially as it ended with the catharsis of fun and laughter. I heartily recommend Yve to all those in need of love and healing."
If I'm honest, I was always a dreamer, even from a very young age. I thought that people who didn't want to live authentic lives and be their authentic selves, were crazy!
Of course, I didn't have the language to express that as a child, but my soul knew what was what! It expended a lot of energy trying to remind me of that over the years.
Those reminders showed up as me always seeking depth, substance, meaning, passion, and joyful creative expression in my life. I wanted to create without running myself into the ground. I wanted to live life on my terms. In my heart I was most definitely a freedom seeker.
In other words, I forgot to listen to what I knew instinctively, and to listen for, what I most needed. I'd listen to my inner whispers guiding me along my rightful path, and then I'd tell myself to get real!
I did that one too many times until I ended up being fired from two totally unfulfilling jobs. I felt devalued, unappreciated and frustrated. Yet the only one doing the devaluing, under-appreciating and frustrating of myself, was me!
Eventually, I had to listen. I started out by deciding what a self-honouring life would look like, especially work-wise. I knew that I would have to work from home and that I would have to choose when and how I worked. After various iterations I ended up with freelance writing as my main income source.
I started to create music again. I'd sung in several local bands in my 20's, but took a break that ended up being a decade long. Then I started writing lyrics and singing again just for my own pleasure. This led to me creating my first album. It was a self-healing endeavour that allowed me to process and express a lot of inner frustration and trauma in a pleasurable way. I've created two more albums since then. The latest, is a 5 track self-titled EP
I culled toxic relationships from my life and began to truly honour my deepest and most heartfelt needs above all else. I'd finally learned to honour myself and my heart. I'd learned to value my gifts and passions.
I learned to trust my true power of being a wayshower and challenger of blindly accepted norms and oppressive societal conditioning. I embraced my abilities as a coach and a healer of unloving and unhelpful misperceptions of self.
Here I am now supportng my fellow dreamers, healers and freedom seekers. Allowing them to see and then shift, their limiting stories and beliefs. Helping them to truly get, that they deserve a life they love!
Then supporting them to go out and create that life.
I LOVE to help you gain clarity where you're confused and courage where you're fearful. You have what it takes. I get to keep revealing that to you.
You choose to walk a conscious path, but that path isn't always easy. Reconnecting you, when you feel lost is what I get to enjoy with you.
Music. Music. Music. Are you my first or second love? I have always loved to sing for as long as I can remember. It gives me great joy.
Building a track, Adding rhythms and counter-rhythms. Playing with melodies and harmonies and creating lyrics too? J'adore!
Writing poetry, short stories and skits was my first love. I love that I still get to create with just pen and paper. Words are beautiful. I love them.
"You always give me the reminder I need through your words, pointing me back to my wisdom and truth..."
"You know how to go really deep and yet that depth feels rich and so empowering. I feel transformed."
"An amazing workshop that left me feeling whole and grateful and full of giggling joy."
I offer online gatherings, group coaching via workshops, and guided meditations and audio courses that are available for immediate download. I only offer limited one-on-one sessions these days. If you'd like to explore working with me individually, use the contact form to get in touch.
I've honoured my passions and my desire to consciously create in multiple genres and via a range of platforms. When you merge that with my love for revealing clarity and empowering others, my love of singing and music and my fascination with words; you can see that my focus has been on creating a life I love.
I'm a published author, having written a book of conscious short stories called 'Awakenings - Are You Ready?' A book of essays, poetry and articles entitled 'Musing on The Path' (currently in revision.) I'm also working on a novel, a spiritual adventure, that merges the metaphysical with the grit of human life. You can listen to book excerpts here.
I've written music since my teens and sung with local bands and solo and had a great time! I even got a chance to open for Gil Scott Heron - a musical genius, in my moody, younger years. My self-titled EP and singles are now available to stream or purchase on all major music platforms. Music previews and links to purchase or stream.
I have worked as both an editor and writer for the popular online magazine: The Good Men Project and have articles published in New Spirit Journal, Elephant Journal, Sivana East and The Wellness Universe.
As a workshop facilitator I've been invited to host workshops at LoveSpirit Festival, Brighton Dome, QuintaSensual, BMECP Events, Love Spirit Festival, WOW Women's Conference in Portugal, and the Celebration of Life Festival in Prague.
