Liz, Communications Manager, Ireland
Lisa's coaching has helped me to become more conscious of what my body is saying and taught me how to tune in and maximise my energy levels when I need to. The benefits are huge and it's such a good feeling when you notice even the smallest changes in yourself and how you deal with certain situations.

Hearing Lisa's talk on Cyclical Awareness and Cyclical Living was amazing. She approached the subject by sharing years of experience, with openness, vulnerability and warmth. I learned so much in the short session, and she set us up to continue learning with creating a discussion group, and sharing resources! Thanks Lisa <3 your work is invaluable!

Lisa is gifted at this work and I'm so pleased she's decided to take it out into the world in the form of her coaching business. She has made an immeasurably positive difference to me and my own relationship with my cycle, and I would encourage any woman to delve into this work with Lisa by your side.
I have had menstruality healing and coaching with Lisa, and will continue to do so. I have a difficult cycle and there are several areas of my menstruality and fertility which have been of concern and pain to me: I started my cycles very early (aged 9) and had a painful and difficult time from the off, I was diagnosed with PCOS several years ago and have recently found out that this has worsened, I have experienced (at least) two miscarriages and I still don’t have children. I also have a genetic blood condition which affects my hormone levels, particularly making my thyroid on the side of underactive. In addition to this, and unfortunately like so many women, I carry trauma around past abuse, maltreatment of my body and various traumatic experiences as a woman. Phew, is that all?!
Every cycle, I experience a plethora of symptoms - from pain to exhaustion - alongside difficult emotions around my body not working 'as it should' or being 'broken’. The more I have spoken to other women about this subject, the more I have found these symptoms and feelings are so common.
For several years, I had read about and lightly explored the world of cycle awareness by myself - from scouring the internet to buying and reading books. Meeting and working with Lisa was the first time I had shared this with someone else. I took particular joy in finding a shared passion and belief in the importance of this work for all women. I had felt a little silly and private about it before I met Lisa.
She has absolutely been the catalyst for making this work a firm part of my life, my health and my healing. I could not have made the progress I have without her. She also enables me to proudly declare it as something that is vital to me, that I am allowed and permitted to give time and energy to.
Lisa has held precious and gentle space for me to explore my cycle with more love than I have previously given to myself. She will give you space to try, explore, fail, to raise questions without demanding immediate answers, to safely go deep inside yourself.
She has also put the work in herself to truly learn this subject and is a reliable and knowledgeable source. I have particularly enjoyed her providing me with a combination of the 'soft' things, such as space to explore, alongside the 'firmer' areas such as knowledge, hints and tips. I run my own business and she has particularly helped me to explore how I can work in a more loving, gentle way for myself and in line with the energy and rest periods my cycle already provides me with.
Lisa is gentle yet joyful, serious about her subject yet down to earth, approachable and lighthearted. If you have the opportunity to take part in this work with Lisa, I encourage you to go for it! I firmly believe cycle awareness can be a wonderful part of the female revolution, starting with a more gentle and loving way of relating to our bodies and selves. I wish you all the luck!

Just read your guide, and wanted to let you know how great it is! It's super practical, beautiful and inspiring. I've been tracking my period for quite some time, but I feel inspired to actually keep more notes throughout my cycle now.
Leanne O'Sullivan - Irish poet on Lisa's poetry
I very much admire the atmosphere this poem creates through its technical achievement, it's use of rhyme and repetition and a wonderful rhythmic sway the writer brings to every line. But what impressed me very much is how the writer is able to marry that musicality with maturity and wisdom. She brings together past and present, myth and experience in a way that is immediate and intimate and incredibly moving. I look forward to meeting this writer in our workshop!
