About Cheri

I live at the ocean’s doorstep and am profoundly grateful to be able to draw on its depth, abundance, power, and beauty to revitalize my spirit and live each day to the fullest. Surrounded by water and nature, with deer, otters, ducks, bears, coyotes, ermine, and soaring eagles as my neighbours, my home is truly a sanctuary.

Why I became a practitioner of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST)

I am drawn to the exploration of human nature and am fascinated with how some peopleIMG_0842 are able to develop a powerful sense of self-esteem, while others are damaged or shattered beings.

As a student of Biodynamic Craniosacral Balancing, I set out to learn how to:

  • Create a better harmonic resonance with others and feel received
  • Ask for support and be able to receive it
  • Feel self love and act on it
  • Live with a sense of being on my true path

I wanted to help other people learn how to tap into their own inner vitality, so they could enjoy greater physical, mental, and spiritual well-being and show up in the world as their best possible self.

But I also wanted to learn this for myself. 

When I became a parent, I was struck with a forceful realization of how little healthy attachment I’d experienced in my life until that point. I’d been a “surprise” baby for my parents, and I believe that my experience of feeling unwanted in the womb resonated throughout my childhood and much of my adult life.

As a small child in a large family, I struggled to be heard or noticed. I discovered that it was easier to bend to another’s wishes in order to be liked rather than to stand my ground from a sense of secure self love. As you can imagine, this had a profoundly negative impact on my self esteem and made it impossible for me to develop in a healthy way, with a secure sense of self love and attachment to others.

And so, when I became a mother, I was unable to deliver these gifts to my son. Although I tried my best, I didn’t know what was missing from our relationship because I had never experienced it myself.

On top of that, I had to deal with serious complications with my pregnancy only weeks before giving birth, adding to the stress. As a result I went into post partum depression that lasted for four years. I had a new baby, a husband who was also struggling with depression at the time, and no support.

My nervous system went on overdrive. I felt no harmonic resonance with anyone in my family — even my baby. I had no sense how to read him, or to know how my shattered nerves and inability to cope were affecting him. Even worse, I had no idea how to ask for help.

With my adrenal system in constant overdrive, I developed chronic insomnia. Overwhelmed with stress with zero energy or resilience — this was my life for nine years.

They say someone who’s carved through a path, can pave the way for another…

Since studying Biodynamic Craniosacral Balancing, I have paved a clear path toward self love. My training has provided me with powerful tools that have helped me gain a clear sense of who I am and what I’m here to do. And they’ve given me the strength, vitality, and resilience I need to meet life’s challenges with a smile on my face and truly thrive, no matter what my current circumstances.

I would love to help you achieve this same sense of profound well-being.
