About Me

I am Anne-Marie

Originally from Dublin, but living in the beautiful county of Sligo since 2006, with my husband and kids. My adorable children are my constant teachers who have taught me more about life than I could ever have imagined.  
 
I facilitate one-to-one sessions in various healing/therapeutic modalities. I run courses, workshops, and events in the areas of shamanism, ancestral healing, women’s empowerment, personal development, self-care, yoga, breathwork, and meditation. I also teach weekly yoga classes in Ballisodare. 
 
Yoga and shamanism have transformed my life. They offer a profound connection to nature and spirit, providing me with a unique avenue for personal growth and healing. Through them, I have personally uncovered the power of awareness, intention, connection, and healing.  
 
I thrive on experiential learning, nurturing an insatiable curiosity to delve deeper into the mysteries of life. My passion lies in empowering individuals and guiding them in the cultivation of joy and self-acceptance. Every person possesses inherent strengths and capabilities, and I am committed to utilizing my own strengths, life experiences, and ability to connect with people to make a positive impact. My aspiration is to lead a conscious and meaningful life.
 
I am happiest when spending quality time with loved ones or connecting with nature. I spend a lot of time exploring the woods or walking on the beaches near where I live. When I feel brave enough I dip in the cold water or try my hand at surfing. My deep-seated love for nature and the land has been ingrained in me for as long as I can remember, and I remain eternally grateful for its wisdom and beauty. 
 
In addition, I am also passionate about music, art, singing, dancing, and various forms of creative expression.

I first heard about the Gallups Strength test when my brother James O’Halloran, (who is also a life coach), did a coaching session with me, focussing on strengths.  Doing the test was vey affirming gave me great insight into why I am drawn to working with people in the areas of personal development and empowerment.   

These are my top 5 strengths and a brief Gallups definition of each:

Empathy: can sense other people’s feelings by imagining themselves in others’ lives or situations

Developer: recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from evidence of progress

Adaptability: prefer to go with the flow. They tend to be “now” people who take things as they come and discover the future one day at a time.

Connectedness: have faith in the links among all things. They believe there are few coincidences and that almost every event has meaning

Responsibility: take psychological ownership of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty.

Over the past couple of years, I’ve felt drawn to working with women, the feminine energies and the cycles of nature. I believe that great healing will happen through women supporting women in an open, honest, and non-competitive way. I have attended many unique circles and courses where women have come together to share their wisdom and life experience, to express their emotions and feelings, and also to engage in various practices as a community, whether meditation, yoga, dancing, singing, cooking, craftwork, swimming or ritual and ceremony. I have experienced first hand the powerful transformation, and deep healing that can happen through listening to, supporting and holding space for each other.
