redefining selfishness by giving you permission to feel


Happy, angry, sad, laughter, tears, joy…emotions are what tell us we’re alive. Without them we feel numb, isolated and begin to question what the point is.

Living your life vicariously through other people is thought of as a bit of a joke for pushy mums, but what if, through no fault of your own, not through conscious choice anyway, that’s what you’ve ended up doing? How do you even begin to work out who you are again? What you want? How you feel?!


When everything feels too much like hard work and things aren’t flowing in the right direction,


I step in and together we find your centre again by redefining selfishness and giving you permission to feel.


I’m a random mix of logic and intuition and a yogi on a mission to teach people about ‘selfish-centering’. I 100% believe that the most important thing we can do for our well-being is be selfish and give ourselves permission to actually feel our feelings; good, bad or indifferent; accepting ourselves and every facet of ourselves, including our feelings, is the only way to truly be comfortable in our own skin (a lesson I learnt the hard way!).


I spend my time identifying truths, challenging beliefs and empowering people to feel again. Remember that? Actually feeling something? I went on my own journey to feel again and redefined selfishness for myself when I overcame depression and an eating disorder in my early twenties. It also inspired me to complete my Yoga Teacher Training and Advanced Counselling Diploma.


My compassion, therapeutic experience and yogic philosophy connect mind, body and soul beautifully.

Then we REALLY need to talk.

Hi! I’m Emma.

I work with beautiful, intelligent, compassionate and spiritual ladies like you, who have somehow stepped away from their true selves and aren’t entirely sure how to get themselves back again. In my signature program, I take you step by step over an eight week period from overwhelm and mental exhaustion to selfish-centeredness – knowing what you want, what you need and how you can make yourself and those you love feel fulfilled and complete.

Thank you for opening the door of a new life chapter and leading me through from the dark in to the light and hope.

You are a remarkable lady with a big warm heart and I am forever grateful for all your help.


It became clear to me that since we had our session, my CONFIDENCE has improved massively, I feel FOCUSED & CONNECTED especially since I am trusting in my INTUITION these days! Yep, slowly over the last few months I have been getting more in touch with myself. I have come to understand how I connect to this world. What I also realise is that I am most in tune with the world when I am in tune with MYSELF. Whenever I listen to my intuition I know how I truly, deeply, authentically feel about something. It’s powerful stuff!

So just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for what you do, for your work and for being so AWESOME!


I have a new awareness around what I need most at the moment, which is to fully engage with my power – the opportunity to build on this is fantastic. I feel as if I have been plugged into an electric socket! All jangly. Also, you gave me an amazing (and very useful) bit of intuitive information.

When I came to you I was feeling stressed generally and negative about my future. I was lonely.You allowed me to fix me, which was very important. I loved how some suggestions, aimed at one thing, opened up a whole new other area for me. I never cease to be amazed at that. I felt safe and secure in your care.I have been feeling wonderful, enthusiastic about life, more positive, relaxed, content, and very happy. Thank you. I feel more powerful, content, and happy.

Thank you for being very patient and to listening to me rant on. I will always be keen to refer people on to you, so watch this space!


How did our work help you in general?
Our work helped me examine the motives for my anxiety and disarm them, either by disproving them or by learning better coping techniques; therefore lowering the general level of my anxiety.
A huge benefit was having a safe space to speak my thoughts out loud. I tend to get stuck in my head with repetitive, often toxic thoughts and then I feel trapped because I feel horrible for having these thoughts, but can’t talk about them. Beyond just releasing those thoughts, hearing you question them and help me get to the root of them was amazing. Sometimes, a thought that had been plaguing me for months lost its power altogether.
I have also been consistently improving in self-care in the past few months and I attribute that to our chats. You helped me see that taking care of myself was not only ok, but necessary to prevent burning out on everyone else.
What did you like about working with me specifically?
You have such a calming voice and I could feel over the phone that you were listening and thinking through what I was saying. You never rushed to give easy conclusions, but had a gentle way of leading me to realize the fallacies in my thoughts. And you were personable. I liked talking to you and looked forward to our chats, even though I always ended up crying.
Any reservations you had and whether these were removed during our work together?
I definitely had some fear about the things that would come out of my mouth. Some of the thoughts I had around my marriage and my family life felt like only a terrible person could feel that way, but you were so calm and non-judgmental that I soon started letting it all come out. It wasn’t just a “well, I don’t know this person, so who cares if she thinks I’m horrible,” but you really made me feel like it was ok to feel that way and that I could work to change that. This helped me shift the focus from beating myself up for having those thoughts and feelings to accepting them and working to move past them.
