Personal Empowerment
Most of us are seeking healing and wanting to find peace and happiness.

Many of my clients had tried many things before coming to me. Some really didn't want to try anything else but there was just something inside of them that took a chance. I can happily say that they were truly glad they did.

The fact that you are here reading this is probably a good sign that you too are seeking something that you haven't found yet.

Have a read through this page and if you connect I am happy to have a conversation with you to see if we might be a good fit for each other. I am happy for you to test me out before you commit to anything. Simply book your Free Insight Session with me. 

Personal  Empowerment
Transforming trauma & generational patterns that stop you living your life fully
I help people make sustainable change in both their personal and business life.

I believe that many people are looking for change in the way their healing occurs. To do this we need to move away from the biological (physical) model which has a single focus of working on the part that is sick and embrace a mind/body/spirit/environment attitude toward healing. Your environment (field) is extremely important to consider when working from an holistic perspective, because if your environment doesn't support your desire to change then we need to look at ways to counteract this.

How healing is done is in transition! People are taking back the responsibility of their health and wellbeing which is the first step toward empowerment!

I will facilitate processes that give you the opportunity to unlock your healing potential.

My passion is transforming unresolved trauma and facilitating growth through trauma. The trauma can be any life event that was traumatic, PTSD, complex trauma, cancer or another life limiting illness that has consumed your life. AND trauma isn't always what you think it is. You can read my 3 part series on this in my blog here.

I specialise in working with trauma, stress reduction, grief and end of life support.

I imagine that recovery to some may be something you can't quite get your head around at the moment and that's ok. My clients are usually people who have suffered the symptoms of trauma for many years and do find it difficult to really trust they can recover. They have also often spent a long time trying to find ways to help themselves.

What is clear from working with many clients is that so many people live their lives with unresolved and more sadly unacknowledged trauma, often living their life in isolation. Often people seek an appointment because of the following reasons.

Mental health issues such as:

* suicidal ideation or attempt; * depression; * PTSD; * anxiety; * panic attacks; * eating disorders; and * addictions of all kinds.

Health issues such as:

* insomnia; *IBS ; * excess weight or loss of weight; * chronic fatigue / exhaustion; * cancer; *auto-immune disorders and * chronic illness of all kinds.

Emotional issues such as:

* overwhelm; * stress; * bullying; * domestic abuse; * feeling unhappy / unsatisfied; and *feeling blocked /stuck in life.

Spiritual issues such as: 

* feeling disconnected; * lack of life purpose; * aversion to previous faith; * searching for meaning; and * sense of feeling lost.

I view all of these as symptoms of trauma. Unattended grief or trauma can sit beneath these symptoms.

"Trauma survivors have symptoms instead of memories" (Harvey, M. 1990)
Sometimes we just need someone to listen!
My clients move out of isolation and into community.

Growth through Trauma Retreat

Testimonial: Will I be judged? Will I be in a safe space? Will this work?   Will I ever shift this stuff and be free?   This is a snippet of the thoughts going through my mind as I first arrived to see Linda.  I was promptly greeted by the warmth from Linda herself and the warmth of her safe space.  Aahh, breathe…   I knew I had to shift some serious childhood trauma that has challenged me my entire life.  Let me assure you, continuing to ‘push down’ unresolved emotions just doesn’t work and it’s hard work!!   In a short space of time in working with Linda I have achieved some great results.  Admittely, sometimes it would be easy to ‘take some time off’, from these session - it can be draining, but at the same time rolling with the momentum and releasing/shifting this ‘stuff’ is now beginning to be empowering.  Patience and I are becoming great mates.   My sessions with Linda are like a rainbow of emotions…some are heavier and more challenging, though powerful and freeing at the same time.  Others are lighter and happier, kinda like those ‘a ha’ moments where you go ‘Now I understand’.   It’s not only whilst I’m with Linda that I feel empowered, it’s as I move through life when I’m not with Linda that also empowers me.  Linda has provided me with many practiced strategies for me to use in day to day life.  Big thumbs up for all the strategies, I’ve used them in different moments for different occasions but they have all worked.  I also know that on those really challenging days (like one Monday recently!!) Linda was on the end of the phone for me.   Feeling grateful . Kylie

Testimonial: Where to begin. When I met Linda I was barely functioning due to anxiety. I was an international Master's student in Australia. The fear and anxiety came on suddenly and unexpectedly for me and I just collapsed. Anxiety was so debilitating that I was in a constant state of panic. I couldn't get out of bed, but at the same time I didn't want to be awake and face life. I was so ashamed of this, and not having a "legitimate" reason for feeling the way I did, that I wished I could just get hit by a bus and be in the hospital so I had a legitimate reason not to continue. It was so hard. Fortunately I met Linda. So grateful to my cousin for her help while I was in crisis and connecting me with Linda. I had other supports in my life, good friends back home, and my amazing mother who flew all the way to Australia. But I knew if I went back home, it would be too scary to go back and I would give up on the opportunity to study.  Fortunately, Linda helped me take it day by day. I'm not sure how she did it. But it was the only thing I could do in a week, go to my appointment with Linda. I am not sure how she does it, but manages to help me cut through the narratives, stories and inner critic in my head, and connect with my truth. Well ok, I think I know some of the ways she does it. She is supportive and kind. She helps me question my beliefs and fears, look at where they come from, and ask what do they need. She has helped me learn to identify when I am getting triggered, or if I miss that, what to do to bring myself back down, back "into my body". I have gotten quicker at being able to do this, and recognizing at when I am going to get triggered and either preparing for it and engaging and managing and making new pathways in my mind, or consciously choosing not to engage.

Set in a beautiful environment of mountains, bush and birdlife, I'm blessed to have participated in Rainbow Atma's 'Growth through Trauma Retreat' held at Ocean View, facilitated by Linda Conyard. The Retreat was held over 5 days and during this time I truly did grow!
I am 68 years of age and for much of my life I suffered from unresolved grief and complex trauma brought about by the death of my Mother when aged 12, followed by sexual and physical abuse from my father which began within weeks of my mother's death and continued until I reached the age of 17 years. I had suicidal tendencies and struggled with my spirituality. I had no direction, believing I had lost my way and I had a sense of hopelessness. The 5 days of Retreat were a well-balanced mixture of working through the pain of the trauma, discovering my life's purpose, becoming 'unstuck' in matters which had me bound, understanding what gets in the way of achieving my desires, and appreciating the value of gentleness and love of myself.
I'm now aware how the impact of trauma has played out in my life. It followed a pattern, reflected by years of living an existence of bearing responsibilities which were way beyond my tender years, of being misunderstood, of being voiceless, of reacting fearfully to certain sounds and smells, living a 'double' life, afraid to take risks and being scorned for my failures. All these led to my belief of unworthiness, severe depression and other health issues.
New possibilities and hope were presented and lovingly guided by the skilful hands of Linda. Read more.....
