Human being. Encourager.
✨Self care ambassador ✨ Encourager of "doing you" ✨ Promoter of making your own rules
✨ Facilitator of mega life changes that feel good
Hiya! I'm Dionne,
Hiya! I'm Dionne, a creative coach, yoga and meditation teacher, dj, writer, spacemaking event maker, but above all, a human being that loves life, good vibes and feelings.
I also love movement, memes, music, food, words, self care, colour, creating spaces that didn´t exist before, cultivating community, collecting inspiration, explorations and adventures.
And sharing combos of these things in spaces and places that might not be the “normal” context. Cause what´s “normal” anyway?!
Most of all, i love sharing combos of these things in ways that are REAL and FUN with GOOD people. Real people. Who are also curious and interested in ways to make life better, more inspired, more abundant, more in-flow. In whatever ways that work for them.
Where are you though?
I'm currently based between the UK (south coast- yo!) and Norway (west and east coast-yo!). I run community events, retreats and experiences in both countries and beyond (thank you, internet!) as well as working one to one with my creative coaching clients all over the world. Life is a bit of a mixup. I like to embrace that.
✨you can feel good and create an inspired life that is meaningful and sustainable in your own unique way.
✨I support people to feel empowered to create real life change that´s purposeful, authentic, balanced and real.
✨It´s my mission to share tools for transformation that are inclusive and accessible
✨so you can feel good whilst carving your own path.
✨I encourage you to do you.
✨I´m into celebrating uniqueness.
✨And getting real, into the guts, and making space to feel the feels.
✨Wherever you have come from, whatever you´ve been through,
✨you are important, of value and worthy of and entitled to designing a life that feels great
(not just one that looks nice from the outside)
