Mental health, physical symptoms + emotional distress, including fertility difficulties, PMT, PCOS, thyroid + digestive complaints, physical pain and relationship stresses are all symptoms of a body and/or mind that are out of balance
As a 3rd generation herbalist I grew up immersed in natural healing and an awareness of the inter-relatedness of all things, working for over 25 years alongside my parents, master herbalists, homoeopaths, authors and internationally renowned hormonal and conception care specialists Ruth & Dennis Sharkey. (Named ‘Australia’s Babymakers’ by A Current Affair, Today Tonight and others for their work with hormonal balancing & natural fertility successes.)
Now I listen and work with you to create lasting, holistic healing using a blend of physical and emotional healing techniques + modalities for mind, body and emotional wellbeing.
Angelart Holistic Living… the art of healing body, mind & emotion…
To insure good health: eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life. William Londen
In the classic chicken + egg dance, our mind affects our body affects our emotions; holistic care helps to break this cycle by addressing all aspects of care simultaneously.
After a lifetime in the alternative healing as well as visual and performing arts, plus study with some of the masters of modern positive psychology, Angelart Holistic Health blends a range of modalities including: Western Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, Mineral Therapy, Counselling, the Australian Bush + Bach Flower Remedies, Strategic Intervention Life Coaching, Human Needs Psychology, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Theta Healing™, Hypnosis, Time Dynamics, the Law of Attraction, Art Therapy and more. I have gained a deep understanding and appreciation of the power of the mind, body, heart + soul, and an even greater passion to help others heal their issues during personal consultations, course and workshops.
By stimulating and balancing the body’s many systems, (the endocrine system or hormone producing glands, lymphatic system, digestive system, and nervous system to name a few), we employ mind + emotional release techniques to find the past wounds, distresses, and core emotional and life patterns that repeat and continue to cause you pain today; and finally give you real relief to be able move forward in your life.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. World Health Organization, 1948
When out of balance these systems they can lead to dis-ease in the mind + body including:
When your heart, body and mind are working together these symptoms can all ease; creating peace, harmony and successes in your life.
With personalised herbal formulations and life + relationship coaching we work together to help your body’s intrinsic natural healing methods bring your body back into balance, restoring peace in your mind while revitalising your body and spirit.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does ‘holistic health care’ mean?
Holistic health / medicine means to observe and include the health of the whole person - body, mind, spirit, and emotions - in the quest for optimal health and wellness, as we are more than just a series of 'mechanical parts'.
How does natural medicine fit with life coaching?
Natural medicine (western herbal medicine, homoeopathy, nutrition, mineral therapy, Australian bush or Bach flower essences to name a few) work to aid the body’s own intrinsic methods of healing, balancing the many systems of the body; including the hormone producing glands or endocrine system, digestive system, nervous system, lymphatics and more. When these systems are out of balance they can cause dis-ease. By addressing the physical changes alone a big part of the picture is missed, as emotional and mental issues can either ‘show up’ and/or be ‘brought on’ (exasperated) by physical conditions or symptoms or vice versa. Extreme or extended stress can create havoc in the weaker systems of our body - and we all have weaker and stronger systems, it’s just our particular mix of genetics.
For those seeking assistance with fertility issues the approach is the same, plus we will pay close attention to your daily changes through temperature / emotional chart recordings to see exactly how and where they are influencing each other and hormonal imbalances are causing issues.
I only want help with a physical complaint; do I have to have coaching or other therapy as well?
Our journey together can be a combination of herbal (physical), coaching (emotional/mental) and soul-healing (Theta Healing™) depending on your needs as we go, and starting from any of those points. However I feel you cannot heal the physical without addressing the mental/emotional and vice versa - our bodies (emotional, mental, physical and spiritual) are whole and fully-connected systems not isolated mechanical components or individual symptoms. The wonderful thing about a ‘holistic’ approach is we can apply strategies to overcome emotional/mental stresses in the ‘now’ while underpinning the physical so real change can occur.
I don’t live in Tasmania, can you still help me?
Absolutely, we can converse by email, Skype or telephone, which ever works best for you, with your herbal medications sent via Australia Post anywhere throughout Australia and most places overseas.
You use Sharkey in your name, are you affiliated with Ruth & Dennis Sharkey?
Yes, Ruth and Dennis are my parents.
Are you affiliated with Ruth and Dennis Sharkey’s (old/other) clinic on the Gold Coast?
No. Ruth and Dennis sold their clinic and the rights to use their name on the Gold Coast in 2004. They and I have been saddened to hear of how things have changed since then, which is one of the reasons why I have decided to return to herbal medicine and reclaim my family name.
Is it possible to meet or see Ruth or Dennis Sharkey?
Both Ruth and Dennis retired in 2004 when they sold their clinic on the Gold Coast and do not see clients anymore. However as my mentors I refer with them frequently and you may be lucky sometimes when they join in on consultations
Do you work with medical doctors or other therapists?
I am happy and willing to work with your medical team towards your optimal health.
