Hello, I’m Christine
I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. I’m half German, half Japanese. I’ve spent most of the last 20+ years living in London, but also in Germany, Czechia, Indonesia and I now call Iceland home.
I am passionate about educating others in how to live a more empowered and wholehearted life. No matter where in the world I’ve lived, I’ve witnessed how all humans struggle with the same core issues. We all have the desire to be deeply seen and accepted, which when thwarted, leads to stress and frustration.
I help people to release stress, emotional baggage and blockages in an embodied way and help to clear the path for a natural unfolding and surrender to peace and joy. I help people to feel deeply seen.
I am a trauma-informed facilitator of healing rather than a therapist.

– MARTHA BECK
After completing my B.A in Psychology at the University of Sydney many years ago, I felt that having a qualification would mean very little if I myself didn’t have the kind of life experiences that would help me empathise with others and to be able to hold a healing space for them.
So rather than continue my studies, I found myself immersed in the “real world”, climbing the corporate ladder at the BBC until I knew I really didn’t want to go any further.
I continued with various further education including massage therapy, meditation, reiki and more.
I also became a scuba instructor, first aid instructor, a published singer/songwriter & producer. Eventually I also set up my own business as a photographer and web designer.
Does the word “overachiever” spring to mind?
I had a burnout in 2017, which I didn’t actually realise at the time. To me it just felt like everything in my life was going wrong.
I was massively in debt, doing my best to run my own business, which was so hard. I had a reputation as a successful sales manager to live up to, I felt like such a failure and it took its toll on my mental and physical health.
This crisis ended up also being my awakening.
I decided to let go of all that wasn’t working for me, including my business.
My partner and I decided to sell all our things and seek a simpler and slower life close to nature. And I was determined to finally start living more wholeheartedly.
Over the years I had seen all kinds of psychotherapists, counsellors, holistic therapists and healers and interestingly the most academically qualified ones were the ones I found least helpful. There was something about the simplicity of working with the body and presence that was so powerful for me.
When I discovered TRE® (Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises), intitally it was in the hope that it might help my chronic lower back pain. It healed that – and so much more. It changed my life.
I decided to train as a certified TRE® provider and to share the best of everything I’ve ever learnt to help others release stress, trauma and to find healing.
So you could say that I have come full circle but rather than work with the mind, I work with the body and self-empowerment.
