I know what it's like when your mind can't switch off at night, your thoughts spiral out of control and you lie awake for what seems like forever. I know what it's like to wake up flat, when the demands seem never ending and when every day seems like a constant struggle.

I know it - because that used to be me.

For years in my late teens and early adulthood, I suffered sleeping problems, major depression, extreme anxiety, chronic stress, recurrent burnouts and disordered eating. Laying in hospital one night, admitted due to physical exhaustion, I realised: if I didn't learn a new way of living, my life ahead would be the same. Pausing on this realisation, it was the dawn of an completely new path for me. Although I didn't know exactly what to do, I knew there was only one thing I could do: learn how to function better. My life literally depended upon it.

From then, I dedicated myself to making it happen: firstly in personal, daily practices such as meditation, exercise and healthy eating; and further by formal education - Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology), Certificate 3+4 Fitness, and Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional Medicine; current). Grounding myself in scientific research, a strong why and substantial support, I was - and still am - successful; I am at my physical and mental peak.

As a reward, I have been able to experience the richness of life: my modelling career is now global, I travel extensively, I do not experience sleeping, mood or eating problems, my relationships have flourished and I enjoy my life fully, exactly as we all should. After my experience, it became evident this was my life purpose - to help others through the same transition, and allow them to function at their best, just as I do. Because of this, I created The Sleep Solution - as from personal experience alongside statistics, I know proper rest is the first step. 

If my story has resonated with you, this may be exactly what you've been waiting for. 
Come on the journey to becoming your best you - I'll show you how.
