There are only four kinds of people in the world.

Those who have been caregivers.

Those who are currently caregivers.

Those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.’

Rosalyn Carter

We are all caregivers in one form or another but the level of service offered is either based on conscious responsive interactions or unconscious reactive behaviour.

Consciousness needs to be understood as a commitment to unearthing the emotional and conditioned legacies of the mind. We have all inherited so much baggage from culture and from unconscious parents and as a result, we grow into these legacies without ever questioning how it all works. Unravelling our behaviours is the great mystery of life and relationships present conditions that open up opportunities for growth and expansion. 

The care industry is no exception. Our biggest breakdowns can illuminate the path to our greatest breakthroughs and our shared humanness nurtures our collective evolution. There is power in simplicity and when we play ‘the inner game to win’ we cross the threshold from victimhood to ownership. This process of enquiry starts to unravel the matrix.

A conscious caregiver is in pursuit of liberation, and the success of our work is based on meaningful conversations with our clients that really help us to understand the background of the person we are working with. Building a profile in respect of their emotional capacity is equally if not more important than getting to grips with their physical concerns. It is the unknown and seemingly less obvious that can initiate embodied healing –

‘Until we make the unconscious conscious it will direct our life and we will call it fate’ 

Carl Jung

My specialities are expanded into 3 primary offerings that suggest an alternate way to address the needs of the vulnerable. My spiritual background has given me the gift of awareness and enabled me to align to a transcendent purpose rather than a material quantifiable purpose. This release of egoic attachments has created an opportunity for wholehearted living and my hope is that I can serve others and forever remain committed to leading by example…

First Carer In

Change can be difficult but it can also be uplifting and calming. Choosing the right caregiver can make or break a situation plagued with anxiety and self-doubt. Relationship dynamics can be complicated if the transition into care is not met with compassion, understanding and kindness. I have no doubt that most carers have these qualities, but not all carers are conscious – an evolutionary skill that takes mindful awareness and practice – the ability to pause and offer careful consideration in the present moment.

Client Rehabilitation

Attaching pleasurable experiences to the drudgery of rehabilitation work requires creative thinking and skilful planning. A light-hearted approach to a frustrating situation can increase productivity especially when the enthusiasm for the most part is one-sided! Engaging with understanding and validating the effort required goes a long way toward promoting self-motivation and self-initiation in the healing process.

End-of-Life Care

Flexibility and adaptability are essential to the unique experience that is inevitable as we approach death. The processing of one’s life takes centre stage and important work starts to take place ‘inside’. It is the beginning of separation from the outside world and a connection to the spiritual energy that is nourishing and peaceful. An intimate connection with the right carer is essential. Someone who is able to discern individual preferences – who understands the relationship between the personality of their client, how they have lived their lives and the unfolding of the dying process that best supports their needs.
