My background is as a visual artist, and I have been working as lecturer in higher education for the last 10 years. I spent much of this time trying to understand how to creatively connect the mind and body.
Over the years of research and teaching, I have been lucky enough to collaborate with experts from a wide range of disciplines. I have worked with scientific community, which included neuroscientists, biomechanical engineers and bone and skin specialists, as well as creatives in dance, choreography, fashion design and other visual artists.
My background in creativity and education offers a unique approach to teaching the Wim Hof Method. During my workshops, I will teach you the fundamental components of the method in a creative and enjoyable way. You will leave feeling enriched physically and mentally and with a new set of skills, that if used regularly, will help you to deal with all of life’s challenges.
Working in higher education provided a devastating insight into just how prevalent mental health issues are. I have seen and dealt with an increasing number of young people who feel desperate, confused, anxious and with few places to turn. This left me feeling helpless, as I lacked the knowledge on how to help these people with their pain and suffering.
I decided I needed to learn more about what I could do to help, which led me to the world of health and well-being. I began with traditional therapies, specifically psychotherapy and CBT, before moving on to more alternative methods like yoga and meditation. During this process however, I was required to confront my own mental health. This took me on a personal journey of self-discovery and soul-searching, which has ultimately led me to this very point.
I started to understand what was causing my difficulties and I was able to see how they could be repaired. The Wim Hof Method has shown me how to heal, how to grow and how to unlock hidden strengths I did not know were there. Now, as an instructor, I can show you how to do the same.
