  • Pursuing inspiring visions and achieving meaningful goals

  • Believing in themselves 

  • Experiencing self-love

  • Living authentically with zest

  • Sharing their gifts with the world

Personal Note

I believe that people benefit deeply from doing inner work, growing emotional mastery and living authentically from their heart.  

And when done so they live with greater wisdom, begin to thrive and are able to create a fulfilling life. 


It is my inspiration to not only share therapeutic change and healing spaces with people, but also to make sure I am living by the pillars of wellness and thriving myself.


On that note, when away from professional endeavours, you'll likely find me wondering amongst the wonders of nature, meditating, reading, surfing, dancing joyfully, savouring music, enjoying the warmth of friendships, and immersing in exciting adventures.

Thank you so much for getting to know myself and Innate Thriving!

I look forward to connecting and supporting you to create the fulfilling life you deserve. 

With gratitude, Jawai.
