Healer at Heart, Artist by Nature
I am a Healing Guide & Multidisciplinary Artist
with creative outlets shared between photography, writing, makeup artistry, yoga and meditation, cacao healing, menstrual education and design. Diverse in their nature, each artistic and spiritual endeavour shares the same undercurrent; rooted in authentic connection to our truest human nature.
Establishing an authentic relationship with myself has become the catalyst for a deeper connection not only with the work I do but the people around me and The Universe at large. By connecting with our own heart and soul, we connect with the heart and soul of the world. Through my own unique celebration of being, I aspire to remind others to hold this sacred intimacy with life, one another and, of course, themselves.
Life, to me, is an opportunity to appreciate what we have, to express ourselves with authenticity and to savour even the most simple, everyday moments. Through cultivating a meaningful relationship with ourselves, we learn to go about the world in a way that is sensitive yet strong, humble yet wise and grounded yet truly visionary. It is my truest passion, pleasure and honour to inspire others to recognize their capability to love themselves and the world around them in their own unique way.
This is what I teach, share and live with love.
SERVICES FROM THE SOUL
Cacao, an ancient plant medicine, continues to act as a catalyst for many of my heart-led endeavours and thus I have been trained as a Cacao Practitioner. By activating a higher state of consciousness through gentle heart opening, this sacred plant medicine works to expand our ability to heal, transform and love beyond limits. It is my pleasure to offer Cacao Ceremonies, 1 to 1 sessions and Sacred Circles, featuring guided meditation, journalling, heart opening practices, women's healing and poetry sharing.

Photography is an outlet that allows me shine a light upon the diverse individuation of our world, yet unified within soulful connection. Whether through portrait, travel or macro photography, my passion lays within capturing the spirit of the unifying essence that connects us all. Collaborating with like-minded individuals as I capture each person's unique nature allows for a beautiful, rewarding and expansive process to unfold. Learn more about photography services here.
YOGA & MEDITATION
I am a qualified Yoga Teacher in the styles of Yin & Hatha Yoga with over 300 hours training. Yoga, to me, allows for a reconnection to ourselves. Learning to sit with our bodies, even during times of discomfort, unlocks the doorway to self understanding, acceptance and inner peace. My mindful teachings embrace intuitive movement, playfulness and each person's individuality.
Alongside teaching yoga, I combine classes with mindful meditation, hand-written poetry and spoken word which encourages a deep state of rest, repair and relaxation; which I believe is an essential act of self love, healing and compassion. Learn more about yoga & meditation here.
WRITING, CONTENT & DESIGN
Working as a Writer & Creative Content Executive for the wellness industry has seen me collaborate with many established wellness businesses to create a deeper connection with their clientbase through authentically expressing their unique services and creating inspirational content.
Alongside written articles, biographies, copywriting and other content & design services, I also love to share heartfelt poetry in a sacred setting. Writing, to me, holds the power to invoke personal transformation by deepening the understanding of our human nature, thus inviting more self trust, inspiration and belief.

I have been working as a Professional Makeup Artist for nearly a decade. Establishing my business at a young age, I gradually became a reputable Artist amidst Ireland's beauty scene with a strong focus on celebrating each client's individuality. Each client, to me, is a blank canvas inherent with their own unique features that are already there and capable of shining. I simply use makeup for clients to discover a deeper connection within themselves, and to experience the beauty of their own true nature. Learn more about makeup work here.
Connecting with our own patterns allows our menstrual cycle to become an ally in creating a life that aligns with our deepest truth, highest purpose and greatest potential. Menstruality is the fundamental awareness practise which harnesses the cyclical intelligence of the menstrual cycle as a means to flow through our lives, as women, in a profound and meaningful way.
I offer support and guidance for menstruating woman on their own journey of self discovery and womb awakening through dedicated courses and workshops, alongside my work as a Cacao Ceremony Facilitator, Yoga Teacher & Healing Guide. Learn more about Menstruality here.
Rooted in the earth as individual, we are all deeply interconnected; entangled within a greater web of Universal consciousness. To live freely in the world, we must find an internal compass to navigate our conflicting ways of being; integrating both earth and sky, physical and emotional, material and energetic, masculine and feminine, yin and yang, darkness and light. I believe that our hearts are our centrepointes between these realms.
Following our heart's guidance allows us to tap into an intelligence greater than ourselves. Our heart permits us access to our own inner portal of truth, unconditional love and transformation. Living from the heart; we intentionally give back to this world in a way that aligns with our own deeper purpose, greatest potential and unique destiny. My own heartfelt connection to life is shared throughout my own way of being and throughout each of my colourful, playful expressions. Enlisting the intelligence of our hearts and subsequently expressing that power unto the world is, I believe, one of our utmost greatest influences on this planet.
From the earliest age, I have been called to explore life's deeper meaning through my free-spirited, artistic and expressive nature. Guided by both intellect and intuition; my understanding of the world comes from a place of both mind and spirit, feeling and thinking, body and soul.
I understand our very human nature to contain this contrasting duality; both limitless and ephemeral, lightness and dark, eternal yet fleeting.
"Diverse in their nature, each branch of my own tree is connected by a power which governs the full spectrum of life; both yin and yang, darkness and light. It is through my own years of self healing in the face of adversity that allow me to explore the multidimensional avenues of creativity that life continually offers."
"If you allow Martha to have creative freedom, this is where the magic will happen."
"Martha's words have a way of welcoming you home and connecting you to the true essence of who you are."
Paula, Cacao Facilitator

"I feel like Martha has this gift of creating a relaxed space for your natural self to shine through.
