Hello beautiful woman, I’m Rachel.

A Transpersonal Guide & Mentor who helps soulful Women trust their inner wisdom so they can express their uniqueness in work and life.

I HOLD COMPASSIONATE SPACE FOR:
Sensitive and intuitive women who hold a vision for a better world and who want to make an impact through their Soul Work.

I LOVE SUPPORTING:
Women to deepen and expand their sense of Self through soulful exploration, emotional embodiment and grounded heart-led action.

I love it that you’re here. Welcome.

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had this ability to tune into the deeper realms of life and to see the potential that lies within. I’m naturally wired to look at life through a psycho-spiritual lens and to tune in emotionally to the undercurrents of a situation.

For a really long time I didn’t take my intuitive and empathic gifts seriously. I followed along with what I ‘should’ do and be, until I learnt how to harness my sensitive nature into my ultimate strength. 

For over 20 years I’ve studied and experimented with spiritual and soul-based personal development and therapeutic modalities. But it’s my lived experience that is most valuable. I’ve learnt that understanding something intellectually is simply not enough – integration and embodiment is what creates lasting change.

MY STORY SO FAR

In 2011, I moved from inner city Melbourne to the lush and spacious South Coast of NSW, Australia.

 

I was tired of the rat race, working just to pay rent, surrounded by concrete and traffic lights and…disconnection. Ensconced in a system that didn’t match my inherent values. I felt an insatiable desire to strip back, simplify and reconnect to what really mattered. 

 

At home on the coast, I began growing my own food, learning about permaculture, nutrition and living in alignment with seasons. Simultaneously, I committed to doing my inner work, completing a Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling and diving way deep into my own soul expansion and earthly potential. Something I continue to do to this day (the work never stops, amiright?)

 

Then Motherhood happened. A rite of passage and life transition that side-swiped me. Four pregnancies and two beautiful children later I’m only now emerging back into life as a transformed woman. Pregnancy loss, birthing and early motherhood has been a tumultuous journey for me, one that has brought me closer to my essence and made me a better human.

 

Now, Earth to Self is the container I work within to inspire and guide women to anchor deeply within and realise the beauty and magic of their personal potential.

I BELIEVE
It’s our sacred responsibility to do our healing and self-awareness work.


I’M INSPIRED BY
The potential that personal transformation holds for humanity and the future of life on Earth.

What I can offer you.

Therapeutic sessions and group work that are a fusion of deep soul journeying and enquiry, emotional healing and embodiment and client-centered mentoring. I draw upon my training in Transpersonal Counselling as well as knowledge of depth psychology, astrology, mythology (all the ology’s), soul and earth based practices, energy work and emotional embodiment. 

 

When I work with clients I’m equally empathic and intuitive as I am grounded and real. I’m always able to meet you exactly where you are.

There are two assumptions that underpin my work:

1. You are your own expert

AND

2. You have everything within you to heal and transform yourSelf.

My role is to witness, guide and support you in your healing and Self-realisation.

After a recent session, a client referred to me as Anam Cara – which is a Celtic term that means ‘Soul Friend’. According to poet and philosopher John O-Donohue, Anam Cara is a person who ‘acts as a teacher, companion & spiritual guide’ AND… ‘someone who you can share your innermost Self, your mind and your heart’.
