I'm Lydia Hill

 
LYDIA HILL | SOMATIC THERAPIST | MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION TEACHER | LIFE COACH

Through my personal journey, I’ve learned how to confront my fears and insecurities, face my shadows, honor my deepest desires, and heal deeply rooted trauma. It was in this transformative process that I reclaimed my power, gained self-confidence, clarity, and finally understood what self-love, and self-worth means. I navigated the corporate world for many years while simultaneously embarking on a spiritual journey through yoga, meditation, and mindfulness. These seemingly disparate paths have now merged into the heart of my work. 

life has not been a walk in the park

My journey began in my early twenties when I delved into yoga and into the complexities of the human mind, seeking clarity in the chaos of my inner life. The wisdom of therapy, inner parts work, yoga, mindfulness, and meditation became invaluable tools in releasing anxiety, overcoming depression, ending emotional eating, and nurturing self-acceptance and self-love.

but it brought me to who I am today

My purpose is to guide you as you rediscover your personal power, embracing your thoughts, shadows, and profound emotions without fear. I work with individuals from all walks of life, from teenagers to retirees and I am profoundly grateful to have found my purpose in life.

My never ceasing curiousity

After studying tax law, working in the corporate world for more than a decade, and subsequently owning a trading business, I shifted my interest. I have been trained in a mix of modalities that have lead me to what I offer today. I am constantly refreshing and expanding my knowledge and skills, simply because I love to stay curious, open, learn, and grow. Showing up the best I can for you, my clients, my family, and my friends. With a sharp mind and an empathetic heart, I see you for who you are, unburdened by self-imposed limitations, and I am excited for you to unravel and see your unique self

I will not rescue you, for you are not powerless. I will not fix you, for you are not broken. I will not heal you, for I see you in your wholeness. I will walk with you through the darkness as you remember your light. - The Medicine Woman's Prayer
