We’re all on a journey, moving through daily life, navigating what’s ahead, as well as just “being”. Soul Trail offers unique experiential services to help you progress skillfully along life’s path.

Panel 1


I don’t claim to have the answers, nor any magic fix to offer. But after more than 25 years work as a Counsellor specializing in life and career direction with several thousand clients of all ages and life stages, as well as through my own journey, I’ve assembled a diverse and functional tool kit that can provide some skills, knowledge, and strategies helpful to navigate and effectively travel life’s journey.

No doubt a reflection of my own personality, my approach to personal development weaves together practical and tangible methods with esoteric and intuitive concepts in a balance which changes slightly to meet each person as their authentic self.

I can be “out there” occasionally but at the same time down-to-earth, there is always a pragmatic slant to these experiential services. Like trees, healthy personal growth happens by stretching up and out while staying well-rooted.

Forest Therapy – Also called Shinrin Yoku or Forest Bathing, this gently-structured practice fuses spending slow time in woodland areas, nature exploration, and elements of mindfulness to promote presence, calm, well-being and innate natural healing. »»

Labyrinth Walking – Distinct from a maze, labyrinths have only one path to follow. The focused activity with no thinking required allows the analytical mind to slow and intuition to emerge.  Sometimes called a “walking meditation” labyrinths have been found to cultivate peace, surrender and clarity on matters that perplex us. »»

Breath-focused Yoga  – Yoga is much more than a physical practice. With an emphasis on the breath and foundational postures, it opens the door to being fully with yourself and being better connected with both your body and what is beyond yourself. »»

Personality Insight – Understanding how you characteristicaly interact with people, and appreciating your similarities and differences with others, can make the difference between feeling in flow or swimming against the current whether at work, with family, in personal relationships, or any type of interpersonal communication. »»
