"LIfe has always been my best teacher"


What if...

You decided to show up and humbly readied yourself to pursue life at a whole new level?

Hi, I'm Wendy McMurdo. I have grown into my role of a writer, healer, life coach, slow living mentor and  creative maker.  I am gifted with psychic insights, in particular around emotions. I bring hope to a world where there is far too much focus on scarcity and negativity, I help women shift their focus so that they develop a deep inner knowing that all the answers to their suffering lie within them, they can choose to change the course of their life, if they are willing, it all starts with mindfulness and slow living.

From stressed out, depressed and living with chronic illness and yes cancer - to healing and courage, I found peace and freedom within.

I am here because I would like to see a world where there is less suffering to dis-ease and emotional trauma - I believe in kindness and global unity. My work will gently peel back the layers, which you have so sweetly packed away and bring to your attention a whole new awareness around how you process your emotions.

Why I am so passionate about sharing my story

Genetic cancer runs in our family, we were brought up with this awareness,  my mother was 'the guru' when it came to health and wellbeing, but she died 5 years ago of cancer, and the experience of watching her die was and still is painful, especially painful because I watched her sister, my aunty die in the same way some years before.

My diagnosis of cancer, was the beginning of my authentic life, which is why I call my cancer the gift which changed my life.

I work with gentle hearted women who struggle with setting boundaries, saying no, expressing their voice, being seen, putting themselves and their dreams first, people pleasing with a low sense of deserving. I help women rise above there emotions, find courage and passion to build a life they love.

Her visionary insights in the field of psychoneuroimmunology ( the study of the effects of the mind on health and resistance to disease) and research have led her to believe that our emotional health is almost always deeply connected to our physical health and this area is quietly evident in all of her writing, coaching and healing.
