Having recently gone through her own transition from her 20’s to 30’s, Anita understands that both challenge and confusion play a significant role in paving the road to a life you’ll love. Her work pulls from a spectrum of fields in coaching, psychology, and neuroscience to energy and spiritual science. Together, these fields bridge the gap between mind, body and soul while leading towards life-changing transformation.
Anita’s focus is on moving beyond old belief patterns in not feeling good enough, emotional eating, and lack of self-integrity in romantic relationships and relationship with self. She helps her clients gain trust in themselves again and find healthier ways to self-soothe and self-nourish. Anita currently lives in Vancouver, Canada, but you can often find her exploring and living in other parts of the world. She’s an active member of Toastmasters International, and creator and writer of the blog The Heart and Soul Expedition.
I believe that life gifts us with a trail of breadcrumbs. Each breadcrumb is a clue as to what we are meant to do here on earth. You can tell when you’ve stumbled upon one of your unique breadcrumbs because you suddenly feel a burst of excitement, curiosity, goosebumps; as if you have stumbled upon a secret that was meant for only you to find.
The breadcrumbs in my life always pointed in the direction of helping people in an intimate, authentic and heart-felt well. I always had this vision of lifting people up. Actually, for the longest time, I didn’t know what exactly it meant. All I knew was that I wanted to help people believe in themselves again.
When I was a young girl, listening to the cautioning words of my mother who said, “if a stranger ever grabs you and tries to take you away, you stomp on his feet, kick him, hit him and run away!” I remember thinking for a long time about this, that if I were ever kidnapped by a stranger, I wouldn’t want to harm them. I was more concerned about what made this person resort to this life of kidnapping an innocent child instead of living a life of happiness and joy. I was curious about what happened in their childhood that made them into this person.
Beyond the hurt we put onto others and ourselves, is a cry for acknowledgement and understanding of what we went through and how it hurt us. Rather than our pain being dismissed by those we love, we are comforted, soothed and supported until we can find our bearings again.
