You'll be guided to explore the most supportive self-care for you as an individual, so that you can enjoy a healthier, happier lifestyle (which overflows to those you
care for).

Abbie is a Self-Care Coach who supports people to put their own health and happiness first, for the benefit of themselves AND their loved ones.

In a society that has brought us up feeling that Self-Care is selfish, Abbie believes that a Self-First approach is win-win and actually essential for our collective health.

It's easy to get caught up in a pattern of swirling thoughts—thinking about a laundry list of things that need to be done, ruminating on past events, or could-be situations of the future—and learning mindfulness can help. But what exactly is mindfulness? 
 
It can be defined as a mental state that involves being fully focused on "the now" so you can acknowledge and accept your thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment. Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that teaches you to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both your mind and body.
