About Willow:
Willow has been a licensed trainer and coach for The HeartMath Institute for the past 6 years. Prior to this, his journey has taken him around the world to study with shamans, spiritual teachers and esteemed practitioners in the areas of personal and spiritual growth and optimal health and wellness.

He has been an emergency room nurse and military paramedic – he is committed to grounding spiritual practices into genuine depth and practical action

He has also been holding Cacao Ceremonies in Perth regularly for the past decade.

Willows story:
Suffering is a state I know intimately – I had a violent, unsafe and lonely childhood. I left home at 16 years old and over the next decades I wandered the world in search of peace, happiness and connection.

I descended into, and overcame addiction. I slept on the streets and found myself in incredibly isolated situations. Through all this, I never gave up hope of becoming well and whole. I dived into personal and spiritual growth, I worked deeply in learning how to forgive, how to love and how to transmute my suffering.

Over time, I began to heal. I noticed that I was always in the right place at the right time to support someone to have the courage to make the changes necessary for the next positive step in their life journey. I became a nurse in order to serve my community in the places where a compassionate act or laugh could transform someone’s experience of suffering.
I continued to train in strategies that would support myself and others to make positive lasting changes and to alleviate suffering. In 2013, through a series of synchronicities, it became clear that the tools from The HeartMath Institute were going to be a powerful nextstep in this commitment.

I firstly became a licensed coach and then travelled to the USA in 2016 to attain their Trainer certification. The knowledge, research and evidence backed tools from The HeartMath institute have been incredibly supportive both in my own life, and the hundreds of individuals I have worked with. They focus on helping to bring the nervous system back into balance, to reduce anxiety in real-time, to give you awareness of emotional triggers that may be keeping you depressed or unable to see solutions to your current challenges. They also focus a lot on gratitude and self-compassion – vital emotions that lead to a richer, more satisfying and meaningful life.

If you are someone that is in a difficult spot, where you know you need to make some changes, you are willing to make some changes, but are not sure what to do, I may be able to just help you to get unstuck and take some empowered steps forward.
