I have always had a love of all things holistic and have studied many modalities over the years including, Reflexology, the Language of the Feet, Indian Head Massage, Aromatherapy, NLP, Spiritual Life Coach, Angel and Oracle Reader, Numerology, Astrology and various energy modalities including EFT, The Balance Procedure and Reiki. I set up my holistic business 20 years ago. That business grew organically and evolved into Balance with Lavinia.
My world came tumbling down 5 years ago, when I got diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Despite having many skills and tools that I was using to help other women with cancer and various chronic illnesses, when it comes to yourself that is a different story. It was at this time that I discovered The Balance Procedure, and it really helped me to navigate my cancer treatment and gain an insight on what was truly important to me. Today my life on the outside looks similar to what it was before I got cancer, but it could not be more different. Before, I would worry internally about everything, making sure everyone was happy and ok, trying to make sure everything was perfect, not thinking about what I needed or wanted. What I do different now, I consciously create my day and I really enjoy the beauty and simple things in life. I am grateful every day for all that I have and all that is possible. As a result of putting my focus on what I love and believe in, my reality has changed beyond even my expectations. My business has grown to an International Business. I have worked sharing my workshops and retreats in Ireland, France, Dubai, Cape Town, Holland, Spain and all over the UK including Neals Yard London, and Glastonbury. I have been interviewed on various radio stations, podcasts, magazines and local business groups. I had the opportunity in 2020 to join 17 phenomenal women from around the world to tell our stories in a book “Notes to my Younger Self – Pay it Forward Series – Volume 3”. The book became a No 1 International Best-Selling Book in 8 countries around the world. The reason I tell you this, is not to impress you, I tell you this because when you have the tools to consciously create your life anything can happen, anything is possible.
I believe we are all unique, and we are all connected. By being our true self, we can move forward in life with ease and grace to live a peaceful life full of joy and balance.
Today is your day.
