We all go through periods in life when we need to prioritise our healing. Be that physical healing, mental or emotional healing.

If we’re not in the habit of integrating self-care into our day-to-day lives—and most people aren’t—then during times of illness or trauma, it’s particularly important to focus on how we can begin to take constructive steps to support our wellbeing.

A fundamental starting point should be our home. Whether we live alone or in a shared household, it’s important to have a space within our home where we can retreat to in order to relax, renew, rehabilitate, release emotional pain (cry!), reflect on our lives and where we may need to make changes.

Sample times when we particularly need this, more than usual:

  • Experiencing, or recovering from serious physical illness.
  • Experiencing mental health issues.
  • Focusing on healing emotional trauma.
  • Experiencing bereavement, be that from death of a loved one, the end of a significant relationship, the loss of a job (which can have identity and self-esteem issues attached)—or any kind of loss that’s knocked us sideways.

It was a joy to work with Hilda. She is so generous and insightful. Hilda took the time to get to know our family’s needs and came up with a really simple solution that is working well for us. It didn’t cost a lot of money and I have been able to slowly implement the changes over the past two months.
She also generously gave us insights for our whole home and I have a plan I’m working towards to support us create a beautiful energy in our home.
I am so grateful to Hilda and would not hesitate in recommending her.
