Yara was born and raised in Brazil. She also lived in the UK, London and Greater Manchester, from 2001 to 2012, during that time she studied Psychology at Metropolitan Manchester University. Her dissertation focused on Mindfulness and Psychological well-being.
In 2013 she moved to Cape Town, South Africa, with her husband and son, where she built a successful holistic practice using Mindfulness tools, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and many other 'out of the box' approaches. She is now back in the UK, where she plans to settle for awhile, until life takes her somewhere new.
In the last 30 years of Yara's personal path towards physical, emotional and spiritual wellness she has had firsthand experience with Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis, Functional medicine, Meditation, Mindfulness, A Course in Miracles, Law of Attraction teachings, EFT, Kinesiology, Reiki, Bio energetic healing modalities, Homeopathy,Theta Healing, Kundalini yoga, Hatha yoga, Past Life regression, Intuitive massage, non dual investigations and finally, as the last piece of the healing puzzle, Somatic Experience (SE) and trauma integration work.
Yara combines her knowledge of Psychology with direct experience of her own self-discovery journey, adding her spiritual gifts, intuition, empathic abilities, Somatic experience and creativity to the mix. In the sessions Yara will create a safe space for self discovery and transformation. She tailors each session to the client's needs. With Yara you won't get a general approach. Each client will be treated as an unique being and she will dynamically guide you according to your needs. Yara meets you 'where' you are in your journey and she aims to give you an exclusive service based on your life's circumstances.
Personal note from Yara:
I am a transformation catalyst. I am also a wife and a mother of a very busy and delightful primary school boy. I love exercising! Pilates, spinning and yoga are my favourite practices. I also love the sun, blue skies and animals, especially dogs. Furthermore, my family loves exercising in nature. Hiking is our favourite outdoor activity.
I used to hide behind the 'Introvert label'. I am an 'Introvert' and a ‘Empath’ who didn't know how to deal with people's and worldly energies. With Somatic and Trauma integrative work I have learnt to feel safe in my body and to implement healthy boundaries; as a result I now use my empathic abilities and connection with the higher source for the greater good. Now I see that it wasn't my introversion that stopped me connecting with people, but the lack of understanding of my own intuition and empathic abilities. I also now realise that the depression I felt for many years of my life was also intertwined with unprocessed traumas.
I spent many years stuck in the wrong jobs and studying the wrong subjects, until life delivered a big wake up call. I was diagnosed with D.R.E.S.S syndrome in 2007 (rare immunological hypersensitivity to pharmaceutical drugs). A few years later I also developed other uncomfortable health issues, including auto-immune issues, chronic fatigue, brain fog and food sensitivities. Because of my allergies I wasn’t able to take any medication. I had to find a holistic way to heal myself. I am now fully recovered from food sensitivities and auto-immune issues. Chronic fatigue and brain fog are things of the past.
It's my desire to provide a safe space to everyone who feel stuck with life’s challenges. Most people don’t realise that everyone hold emotions and trauma in their bodies. The body can only take so much unprocessed emotions. Life gets so busy and people tend to switch on the ‘automatic pilot’, living life with little awareness. Unfortunately after awhile all the unprocessed issues gets on top of us, manifesting themselves in the physical realm, as diseases, financial struggles, relationships challenges or even spiritual crises.
I am not a finished product. None of us are. We are all looking for new experiences and expansion. Growth is unavoidable. I am here to help and hold space for you to align with your intuition, purpose and joy; creating the next chapter of your life with mastery and intention.
