I’m Jude – mystic, dreamer, coach and dancer
I am Verdant Mystic.
It’s kind of funny how often it’s the things that you’ve been told all your life make you wrong or weird are the things that are truly your treasure. That’s certainly been the case for me!
From trying to listen to the birds at sunset as a child, to navigating the shoals of teenagedom, to those ‘little’ life transitions of marriage, divorce, marriage, kids, menopause…
I tried doing what you’re meant to do: study hard at school, work hard at a sensible job, wear sensible shoes… but I always leaked out at the edges. I’ve finally learned to stopapologising to the world for being different, for being weird, for being ME.
My twin superpowers are curiosity and listening. I’m fascinated by the variety and commonality of people’s stories, and I love to help people write the next chapter of their lives.
I love supporting people to achieve their dreams. I especially love helping people deepen their lives, and discover new things about themselves and how they can get along in the world. I also love stretching my own development, and challenging myself to learn and grow.
I’m also Mum to twin teenage sons.
My favourite colours are green, green and green.
