In the busy lives that we lead, we are always being pulled outwards.
We often find ourselves being pulled in many different directions, and in an attempt to keep up with everything our lives ask of us, we feel pressure to move faster, do more and work harder.
Over time, our mind becomes over-stimulated as it races from one thing to another and gradually we begin to lose connection with a deeper part of ourselves - with our heart's desires, our intuition, our feelings, our body's wisdom and most importantly our true wants and needs.
We know we 'should' take time to rest, to meditate, to practise self-care and journal, but sometimes it is impossible to switch off. Or if we do, we then have to deal with a critical voice in our head telling us we are being lazy or unproductive.
So we end up rushing, stressing, striving and filling our schedules to keep up with it all. We lose touch with our loving inner guidance and instead become ruled by fear - fear of not meeting deadlines, fear of falling behind, fear of missing out, fear of not doing enough, fear of not getting where we want to be, etc... I could go on.
We feel that if we could only get everything in our life under control, we could finally relax... but that day never seems to arrive.
So we work and strive and do more... But all that happens is we move further and further away from ourselves and what makes us truly happy and fulfilled.
Instead, what we need to do is the very thing we are resisting doing. We need to slow down, create space and untangle ourselves from the noise, drama and distractions of our external world.
We need to tune back into our inner selves, so we can reconnect with our feelings, our wants, our needs, our heart and our inner voice, which is always guiding us to what is truly right for us.
We need to prioritise the tools and practices which nourish and refuel us, so we can feel whole, happy and empowered from within.
We need to create space to listen to what we are most needing, so we can step back into our power and begin designing a new way of living that deeply nourishes us.
This is why I created Slow Down & Tune In
I designed this soulful 9 week course to help you unravel old patterns of anxiety, fear and stress and come back into connection with the love, wholeness, power and wisdom that is within you.
You will be supported to slow down your thoughts, release your dependence on your logical mind, unhook from living ruled by fear and instead drop deeper into your heart and your body to access your deeper wisdom and guidance.
You will be held, guided, nurtured and supported to gradually release what has been weighing you down for too long, so you can once again feel light, free and full of joy within yourself.
Each week you will learn powerful principles, teachings and practices to create powerful changes within yourself. You will receive practical workbooks, transformative video classes and live group coaching calls to guide you through the process step by step.
This course is for you if you're struggling with:
√ Patterns of busy-ness, stress and constant doing which keeps you feeling like you can never slow down, relax and rest.
√ A disconnection from yourself where you feel out of touch with your truth, your power, your wants, your needs and what is most important to you.
√ An inability to hear your loving inner voice, receive guidance from your intuition or make heart-driven decisions.
√ Difficulty feeling self-love and instead find yourself seeking for love, validation and approval from others.
√ Negative, critical self-talk, limiting beliefs which hold you back, and a mind full of worry and anxiety that you can't seem to ease.
√ Not knowing how to work through your feelings and emotions (especially those big uncomfortable ones) and instead, you find yourself trying to avoid them.
√ A niggling feeling of emptiness, discontent or dissatisfaction that you can't seem to shake no matter how much you get, gain or achieve.
√ Making everyone happy except yourself, and struggling to say no or implement boundaries out of fear of disappointing others.
√ A need to control everything and never feeling safe enough to let go, surrender and trust.
√ A deep desire to begin practising self-care, self-love and self-connection but feeling totally overwhelmed or confused at where to start.

Hi, I'm Connie
I am an International Life Coach, Speaker, Writer and Host of the Awaken Radio podcast.
For the past 8 years, I have been working with women and men from all around the world, supporting them to build a strong, loving and empowered relationship with themselves.
Through my private coaching practice and online courses, I guide my clients to come back into connection with their true power, their inner voice, their heart's guidance and with the love that exists within them.
But before I began doing this work, my life was very different.
For years I struggled with anxiety, an eating disorder, panic attacks, low self-esteem, control issues and a chronic addiction to external love.
I lived ruled by my head and by patterns of people-pleasing and work addiction. I was always seeking external approval. I was completely disconnected from my heart, my intuition and my body's wisdom. I found it hard to sit still, to be alone and to just be.
And so I was continuously setting goals, creating external change, and rushing and running through life, trying to find a solution to my constant dissatisfaction.
Eventually, I came to discover (the hard way) that nothing 'out there' was ever going to plug up the holes of what was missing within.
So, I went on a big soul seeking mission, and I finally found the courage to turn my search inwards. I hired a Life Coach, bought every self-help book I could find, and I got to work.
I began looking within myself and finally feeling and facing everything I had spent years running from. Rather, than distracting myself with surface changes, I dug deep to finally heal and release the core wounds that I was avoiding.
I learnt how to slow down and find stillness, listen to my heart, feel my feelings and deeply love myself. I devoted myself to self-care and honouring my wants and needs. I stepped into my power, began to courageously follow my intuition and I started showing up for my true desires.
And as I did, everything began to change.
Doing this work competely transformed myself and my life. And now I want to share with you the principles, rituals, and practices that have healed my own life and the lives of hundreds of my clients.

"I HAVE GROWN SO MUCH & STEPPED INTO MY POWER"
"Slow Down & Tune In brought me back to myself and my practice of self-love. I was in a major period of transition — life, moving, career and relationships — and it helped me trust myself and surrender to the unknown. I feel like I have grown so much and let go of many beliefs that were not serving me in order to guide myself back to my truth. The power of journaling and other self-care practices have really been an amazing revelation! I was not writing very much before and was doing self-care rituals, but since the course, it has definitely become a non-negotiable for me. I feel I have stepped way more in power and I now have tools and ways to grow further in a healthy way."
"I HAVE DISCOVERED A LOVING SPACE WITHIN MYSELF"
"Slow Down and Tune In has been amazing. It's packed with all you need to know to really start a journey inside the self. At times I found it challenging, but Connie is really supportive and sharing the journey with other beautiful sisters is really important. I was full of fears at the beginning of the course but step by step, I've discovered a loving inner space and the tools to access it. I'm beyond grateful!"
"I LEARNT HOW TO CARE FOR MYSELF IN A MUCH DEEPER WAY"
"Connie's Slow Down & Tune In course came at such a significant time in my life. I had made a huge decision (with medical advice) to treat my depression and anxiety with a more holistic approach. Every Saturday I would make time for myself, on the couch, at the beach or on a walk and I would listen to everything she had to say. To have this course and support along with other therapies, I am forever grateful. Thank you Connie for reminding me why I am so important and for all the tips and support you share. I have taken away so much knowledge and feel completely supported. I have learnt a lot about what my soul needs and how I can care for myself on a much deeper level."
"I HAVE THE TOOLS TO SLOW DOWN & SHIFT MY THINKING TO LOVE"
"I came into Slow Down & Tune In with an open mind and I gained so much more than I would ever have imagined. Connie has provided me with so many tools to handle life, but most of all she has reminded me how amazing I am and to let that shine through into the world. Too often I get caught in the spiral of self-doubt and negative self-talk, and Connie has given me tools to slow down, listen, acknowledge and shift my thinking to love and understanding. She has helped me cut myself some slack and stand proud because I understand myself better. Whatever you are struggling with, this course with help you. Thank you Connie, for holding space for me and all the other people in our tribe. "

"I CREATED A REGULAR MEDITATION PRACTICE & SELF-CARE ROUTINE"
"I had been seeking something to support my spiritual growth for some time and Connie's Slow Down & Tune In programme was the perfect remedy. The tempo of the classes was perfect and the content wonderfully challenging. The programme supported me to create a regular meditation practice and make self-care practices a priority. Even the content I was familiar with, it was useful and powerful to hear Connie's spin on those topics. I would recommend this programme for everyone, particularly those women seeking spiritual growth, connecting to a supportive 'tribe', and curious to learn more about themselves."
"I HAVE CONNECTED INWARDS & DISCOVERED WHAT IT MEANS TO TRULY LIVE"
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for Slow Down & Tune In. Thank you for such a beautiful course, and for articulating the process of connecting inwards in a way that allowed me to understand how we are all truly meant to live. Every week I have enjoyed getting your emails and listening to your beautiful words of wisdom, your guidance and encouragement to live from within. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to live their highest self and connect with their intuition to do your encouraging and supportive course."
"I AM IN TUNE WITH MY INNER WISDOM & FEAR IS NO LONGER CONTROLLING MY LIFE "
"Slow Down & Tune In came in to my life at the perfect time. As a re-formed people pleaser listening to my own guidance and intuition had not been natural for me and it has been a learning process that this course has helped to facilitate. I can confidently say this course has taught me how to tune into my loving, higher wisdom and taught me how stop my ego and fear based thinking from controlling my life.
I experienced significant shifts in each module, and have witnessed my own personal growth week by week which has seen me hold stronger boundaries personally and professionally (this was becoming a significant issue prior to this course). Connie’s active involvement provides a safe and nurturing environment to explore these concepts. I can’t recommend this course highly enough for anyone who wants to learn how to trust their intuition."
"THE GROWTH HAS BEEN MASSIVE. I HEALED WOUNDS AND FOUND ME AGAIN"
"Thank you are not a big enough words to express my gratitude for my experiences during Slow Down & Tune In. I had ummmed and ahhhhed over joining and I am so glad I did. You have taught me so much and how to look inwards is something I never knew was possible. The growth from doing so has been massive. I have seen things in a new light, healed wounds and have the tools I need to live a happy life. I’m so sad the course is over. You are truly amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me find me again and showing me the path back to happiness and for my family to have me back."
"I FEEL SOFTER & I AM FINALLY IN RELATIONSHIP WITH MYSELF. "
"Connie has woven together a beautiful offering with Slow Down & Tune In - one that is holistic, supportive, insightful and loving. I felt she was speaking to my higher self the entire time. I began to remember who I am at my core. Through Connie's soulfully crafted work, I am finally in relationship with myself. I take the time to ask, listen and act on what it is my body-mind needs.
Connie's guidance has begun the shift of old stories that had caught me in holding patterns. And as this healing works its way through me, I feel softer. I have a stronger sense of self, and why I am here in this present time and a greater sense of engagement with life. Connie, your course is utterly amazing and echos how I choose to live my life. Feeling, sensing, slowing down to tune in. Thank you for so joyfully guiding, sharing and holding space so that I was able to step into who I am."
"I DISCOVERED HOW TO TRUST MYSELF AND STOP SEEKING EXTERNALLY"
"With Connie's support, I've learnt how to accept and embrace my feelings and not be frightened of them. Rather than running from my feelings I now know how to get in touch with them and sit with the uncomfortable ones. Another big shift has been my willingness to go within and be guided. I have discovered how to stop searching externally, and I am now able to trust myself. I have released my self-judgment, and I finally learnt what it feels like to accept myself. It has been life-changing!"
