Simone has been helping people improve their health and wellbeing for over a decade. A warm and natural facilitator and shamanic practitioner Simone thrives on sharing wellness practice and theory.
Her personal journey from chronic illness to vibrant health has provided her with experience in shamanic and energetic healing along with formal qualifications in Nutrition and Health Science. Simone continues to follow the latest evidence based findings to see where science is validating traditional and shamanic healing techniques.
In addition to her Reiki practice and regular meditations, Simone has presented on nutrition at a rehabilitation centre, as a speaker at the Springboard Women's program, along with developing and delivering a series of Worklife Balance workshops.
In 2014 Simone began incorporating coaching based programs into her practice for those wanting a more structured approach to making health and wellness a priority.
Comfortable in small informal groups or corporate environments of 100+ Simone packs her sessions with real life examples and activities to ensure the information is easy to digest and that it sticks.
My journey started with a dark night of the soul where I was chronically depleted in mind, body and spirit. Although taking steps to improve my physical health it continued to deteriorate. I had quit smoking, cut down drinking, was eating right and exercising more, yet I was getting sicker. Clearly the science based guide to health was lacking.
Fortunately I had recently met Medicine Crow, a healer, teacher and enabler. Crow showed me that my negative thoughts were depleting my personal power and, through traditional shamanic teachings and practices, he taught me to worry less, laugh more, and to like myself again.
This was all it took - from my first journey workshop my wellbeing started to improve. So began my interest in, and commitment to, shamanic healing practices. Understanding our connection to nature (we are part of it, not separate) I continued with my Nutrition studies fascinated by the science supporting a natural whole food diet. Subsequently I went on to complete a degree in Health Science and discover emerging evidence supporting other shamanic practices.
My passion is in using and sharing techniques that work. Every choice we make moves us towards or away from being at our best. When we understand what optimum health and wellness is and how to achieve it, making the right choices is easy.
In good health, Simone Ainsworth
