“Over the last 16 years, Colleen has given me theraputic massage and hair care. My body and physical appearence has benefited from Colleen’s expertise. All of it was completed with with her innate ability to feel one’s emotional needs and to feel mentally uplifted after each visit.”
“We have known Colleen for approximately 15 years since moving to Dalmeny and have followed her to Martensville for both our hair and massages. Jim has known Colleen longer as she was cutting his hair….when he had some….back in the late 70’s. It has truly been a pleasure to be associated with Colleen over the years and establishing a great friendship at the same time. I’ve often said that Colleen needs to “bronze her hands” for the magic she does with them when giving massages. She is truly a caring and thoughtful person who is willing to listen to you and give advice if needed whenever you have one of those days! Although it is a great loss to us, I know Colleen will excel in the new path she is taking. We couldn’t have asked for a better friend and wish her all the best in this new chapter of her life.”

My journey with Colleen began about 5 years ago. I had recently moved across Canada after leaving a 20 year relationship with my husband. I brought 3 of my 4 boys with me. My oldest son had totally distanced himself from me based on the decisions and choices I had made in leaving my relationship with his dad.
I was hurting so bad and my boys were out of control. Many saw me as an empty shell. This is where Colleen comes in. Through her counseling and guidance, I see myself today as a beautiful woman with so much to offer the world. I truly love myself and am grateful for Colleen being a part of my life.
Step by step Colleen showed me how to love myself. Over and over she would remind me to be gentle with myself. These words meant more to me than you can imagine because I actually hated myself and the decisions I had made. Colleen was able to bring me back to life and through the process she would say things like, “Keep reaching for a better feeling”!!! That is one of my favorite things to do when I am feeling out of touch with my true self. When I reach for that better feeling, whatever it may be, I come back to “me”, a loving human being. This is what she kept telling me – you are a loving human being. Love yourself and the rest will work itself out.
Another great lesson I have learned and keep learning from Colleen is that I need to live in the moment. Whatever happened in the past has led me to where I am, so it has to be good. This brings a smile to my face as when I stay in the moment I am truly joyous. I have learned through Colleen’s gentle guidance not to live for what might be in the future because all I have is right now and she often says “What’s so bad right now in this moment?” The answer is always nothing – All is well. This is another affirmation she brought into my life – ALL IS WELL. Just saying it out loud gives me power.
My boys are also benefiting from Colleen’s guidance. Because I love myself, my boys want to be around me and they are so beautiful. This, I know, is because Colleen never gave up on me. When I was broken hearted about my oldest son I would call her and she would gently help me reach for a better feeling and remind me that things were exactly as they were supposed to be. She would tell me to imagine a cord connecting me with my son and to send my love through this cord as we are all connected. This is miraculous because I did this and guess what, my son has spent the last two Christmases with me and his brothers. He now phones me for advice and to chat. This is all thanks to Colleen and her gift of helping others find their true selves.
I went through some difficult relationships on my journey and Colleen was there to help me. Colleen would give me a “nudge” when she felt someone was not right for me while at the same time allowing me to come to the decision on my own through my growth and loving myself. That is what is so amazing. As one evolves through Colleen’s counseling they come to their own awareness because they learn to listen to their emotions. Today I am in a loving relationship with a man going on 2 years. Also, I will be receiving an undergraduate degree with a major in sociology within the next few months. Oh what wonderful things can be accomplished if you have the right person in your corner – that being Colleen.
I could write pages and pages of my journey with Colleen and how she brought me out of that empty shell into the loving being I am today. She is a true inspiration. I love to be around her as she is “LOVE”. It is simple she tells me. And today it is. Today I can look in the mirror and say “I love you Shirley, I really, really love you!” This makes me giggle just thinking about it because I believe it. When I say it I am connected with my “Source”. All is well!!!!
I have known Colleen for about 8 years. I started going to her for massages due to an injury. Over the years, our relationship has evolved from simply massages, to one of sharing, understanding, caring, learning and lots of laughter!
Colleen has a true gift of healing- physically, emotionally and spiritually. She cares deeply about people and loves them where they are. She offers them hope and encouragement and opens them to the possibilities of a new way of thinking, feeling and believing and that you can have an abundant life whatever your circumstances. She has a positive and fresh outlook and she has made a real impact on my life.
She is a teacher as well as healer and I have learned much about myself and life from her. Amid times of troubles, challenges and self-doubt, Colleen has shown me that life doesn’t have to be complicated. That amidst the kaos we can find calmness, gentleness and love. She truly desires to help others find their path and live full, rich lives. I always come away from our times together feeling very blessed. Thank you my friend.
