Transformational Love Therapist

My name is Simone and I am a mother of a beautiful girl. Before starting my company, SIY, I had a turbulent life. Being a single mother has its wonderful moments, but it has also been challenging and continues to be at times. I believe every mother can relate to this.

Looking back, I have suffered a lot. I found life difficult, with ups and many downs. I have experienced depression, anxiety, and insecurity. Often, I lived in survival mode. Of course, I can talk about how tough my life was and what I have been through, but it has not always been that way.

For about 20 years, I lived with addiction. The substance itself did not kill me, but the behaviors around it became overwhelming. I often did not know how to navigate life. I have been to addiction clinics, undergone treatments, etc. Daily use was not for me, but I used substances on a weekly basis to numb myself. This seemed like the solution for me at the time. As a result, I went through periods of abusing different substances.

Addiction is a terrible disease and difficult to overcome. I searched for solutions, but the traditional mental health care system did not work for me. I found a plant medicine. From the moment I stepped into this shamanic ceremony, my journey began, albeit with ups and downs, but slowly I started feeling better. Through experiencing various plant and animal ceremonies, I have come closer to myself step by step.

My journey went uphill quickly. During my own healing process, I have seen various trainings, sessions, ceremonies, and body therapists, including Lomi Lomi trainings and sessions, Tantra retreats and meditations, holistic therapy and coaching, De-armouring retreats and sessions, and Yoga therapy and trainings. Initially, I do all of this for myself. I need it to connect with myself and to develop. Each training and retreat is a new process, and I am grateful for that. It keeps me aware, and I get to share with others what I have received myself. Daily yoga and meditation also help me.

I am grateful that I believe. I believe in what the Universe has given me. My life is good now. I am a happier person and a better mom to my girl. Of course, I still have struggles occasionally, that’s life, but I can handle everything much better now, and the low periods are much shorter. I accept the challenges I encounter in my life, and I also appreciate the good times. I couldn’t do that before. I make wise choices now and enjoy life.

With love,
