  • "We come into the world inbuilt with some amazing natural healing mechanisms. To heal from overwhelm, stress and trauma through crying laughing and playing with loving connection. Life is much easier, happier and more connected for us and our children if we embrace these processes rather than working against them "

    (Marion Rose)

  • "Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back toyourself "
