The Ultimate On-line Space for Sensitive Souls.
We all know how important self-care is, but putting this into practice is often the biggest challenge; especially with busy lives, lots of responsibilities on our shoulders and the constant curve balls that come our way.
When we feel exhausted, anxious and overwhelmed the first thing we ditch is self-care. We tell ourselves that we don’t have the time, energy, head space, or even money, to make those necessary changes or to focus on ourselves. Our inner voice is telling us to choose the path we know, to not rock the boat and to accept what we already have.
As sensitive souls, we’re also extremely aware of the needs of other people and we do anything we can to avoid judgement, rejection and criticism. Instead of making our decisions from a place of authenticity, we make our decisions from a place of wanting to please and to avoid conflict.
I’m Marie Houlden, and author of ‘I Choose To Be Happy’. I’m a unique hybrid between a therapist and a healer; helping sensitive souls embody self-care, self-acceptance and self-belief. As someone who is highly sensitive myself, I felt called to help others.
For many years I struggled with understanding and accepting who I was, I was overwhelmed, stressed and often on the brink of burn out, placing everyone else’s needs before my own. I know what it feels like to be ruled by perfectionism and to have that horrible feeling of never being enough, or never having done enough. I was a terrible people pleaser, with poor boundaries and just wanted to make everyone else happy; which left little time and energy for my self care and living an authentic and happy life. I felt such responsibility for everyone else, their emotions, well-being and happiness. It was overwhelming at times and life lost all of it’s joy.
Through working on myself and learning to embrace my sensitivity, feeling confident to express my truth and accepting who I am and what I need; I now have an amazing life and a thriving business. Over the last 13 years I have worked with thousands sensitive souls all over the world, helping them to understand, appreciate and nurture who they really are, to see their sensitivity as a unique gift, and to live a life that they truly love.
My work and sessions are completely unique as I blend healing modalities to provide clients with exactly what they need in the moment. I am a qualified Breathwork Facilitator, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Kinesiologist, EFT Practitioner, Strategic Intervention Coach, Reiki Master and Practitioner of Transformational Bodywork. I am also trauma trained, after studying with Gabor Mate for a year.
