The Self Discovery Centre

Here is where you will solve

The Mystery of Being You


and discover how 

What you believe today

Shapes your reality tomorrow

At The Self Discovery Centre

you will solve the mystery of being you

by providing opportunities for women to understand how their thoughts, beliefs and

behaviors have led them to the life they are living today - and then empower

them to make different choices so they can live the life they want.

Understand Yourself

To understand yourself we ask and find the answers to the questions:

  • Why do I think the way I do?

  • Why do I feel the way I feel?

  • Why do I do the things I do?

  • Why is my life the way it is?

Because when you learn, understand, and begin to recognize why you do the things you do, then you can clearly see the patterns of your behaviour in your life.

Which makes it much easier to change what you want or need to. 

Live the life you want

As you empower yourself you will naturally begin to focus on living a different life that what you have now. You will think of a positive healthy and happy future. 
We turn those thoughts into reality as you learn and are coached into the process of living and manifesting the life you want.

You will be guided and held as you discover what you want and where you want to be instead of where you are now.

Empower yourself

Once you get the answers to your questions, together we teach and guide you through the process of change.

This includes learning and practicing

new coping skills, healing emotional wounds, overcoming physical pain and visualizing hope for the future.

During this you process you naturally become empowered as you realize and see the different results in your life. Then you naturally look forward to your future and 


Think of the process (your journey of being at the SDC) of self discovery like going on a road trip.

Take out your map or open your GPS.

Pick a destination.

Plot it on your map.

Add in your starting place.

Decide how you are going to get there - walk, bike, bus, car.

Plan your route.

Plan your leaving time.

Pack what I need.


* this is when I would give examples:

At the SDC it would look like this

destination = happiness

starting place = mild depression

how = workshops and individual sessions

route = take time for learning adventures and being in a like-minded community

leaving = next month workshop on Help! my Life is out of Balance

pack = willingness to look within, try new behaviours, ready to personally grow, be with like-minded people

go= even though i have never done anything like this before, I am committed to myself and know I can have a better life.


like going on a road trip to a new place and using a map to get there.

It is easiest when you know where you are and where you want to go to.
The route you take from A to B can be as long or short as you want it to be -  and can sometimes detour into places that you didn't expect to be. 
But when you have a destination point and a map you will rarely get lost. And if you ever do, then you can check your map and find a new route to get back to your destination. 

Is the Self Discovery Centre right for you?

Yes if you haven't had the time or opportunity to look deeply inside yourself to figure out what makes you tick.

Yes if you feel your life is not going the way you want it to.

Yes if you want to love yourself more than you do.

Yes if you never had much guidance with this "life" thing

Yes if you have more stress than you want even tho 

  • read self-help books but they haven't really changed your life much

  • do your best to be holistic through yoga, mindfulness, exercise, meditation, but still have stress

Yes if you currently feel:

  • out of sorts

  • a bit uncertain about who you are in your world

  • not feeling as happy as you used to

  • frustrated by fluctuating emotions

  • increased stress about a recent situation and not sure how to be rid of it

  • like your life is out of balance

  • silently struggling or overwhelmed with a past or present situation 

  • unable to cope at times

  • increased physical issues



And want and are ready to:

  • discover why you are the way you are



Yes if you want to meet and hang out with other cool women like you who know that the best way to influence others is to be the best and most authentic person want the best for themselves, children, grandchildren, and the community  

A double yes if what you want instead is to:

  • be able to easily cope

  • enjoying your life

  • relieved, calm, peaceful

We know that stress, emotional and physical pain is linked to unresolved emotions that are from past or current painful or traumatic events.

Our approach is holistic and we teach how and why your mind, body, and spirit are intricately connected.

We follow the science behind how the heart, brain, and body are connected. And how life is primarily led by your subconcsious thoughts in your brain. And those thoughts are connected to your beliefs.

What we believe today 

Shapes  our reality tomorrow


Why you make some decisions and not others?

Why in hindsight some of those decisions were wrong but you still keep making them?

Why some relationships are good but some are bad?

Why is your life the way it is?

Why you sometimes feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster?


And most importantly, how can you make it all change for the better?

The Self Discovery Centre was created for you so you can understand yourself.... the who, what, where, when, and why. Then the most important - is how to make the changes you want so you can live the life you want.



The physical space has just the right conditions for you to relax, be comfy and leave your stress outside the door.

While here you will have the time to slow down, breathe, stop 'doing' and start 'BEING'.

You will be emotionally held by myself and your community sisters who are also on the same self discovery journey.

In this relaxing, positive, encouraging, nurturing, and peaceful environment we take the time to listen to and be with your needs. Time slows down your mind and we listen to what your body has been trying to tell you.

This homey surrounding is authentic, caring, and designed for you to be a soft place to land if your current reality is hard and prickly. 

If you are anything like I was, then you have read lots of books, taken courses and workshops, but still
