Hi, I’m Athena and I am so glad that you are here.
By trade and title I’m a writer, a qualified psychologist and a self-help columnist for Cosmopolitan Magazine on a mission to help you reclaim your good. But without all of those “labels” I’m just a woman trying to live and love as much as I can whilst I’m alive. I believe that empathy towards self and others is what really matters. I also believe that we all have the innate ability to heal and up-level our lives by unifying the spirit, mind and heart. It hasn’t always been like this for me though… For a long time I felt completely lost and confused. I had no idea what I could possibly have to offer others. It was only when I went within that I realized that nothing outside would ever make me feel what I was craving… Self- acceptance.
So, in the process of following my path, I trained as a psychologist (learning from people who dedicate their lives to understanding well-being within the psyche). And at the same time, I also trained with a spiritual shaman from my old hometown in South Africa. It was a journey and process that took me 7 years to complete. I knew that something beautiful would emerge from my experience. This website is that thing of beauty. My soul calling poured onto these virtual pages. This site is dedicated to you. Ultimately guiding you to trust your head + heart to carry you to exactly where you need to be.
