"I’m Iseut and my goal is to guide you through your life journey. I started my professional life as a PR in a financial company. After 7 years, I realised that what I was doing didn’t feel right deep inside – my heart just wasn’t in it; I was not following my life purpose ! It was quite instinctive to reorientate myself to learn about alternative therapies.
Since I was a child, I have used sophrology, kinesiology, homeopathy, plants, flowers and essentials oils to enhance my well-being. My mom shared her own experiences and passion with me. I became aware that I could find all answers within myself.
It was an obvious to me that I had to learn more about healing. I followed different training courses in therapeutic foot reflexology, acupressure, shiatsu, reiki, nutrition, aromatherapy, kinesiology, yoga, meditation etc.
Since then, I have been busy discovering more and more about the body, the mind, the energy and the soul. Everything lives and intercepts in harmony and symbiosis. For the last 4 years, I have been working as a holistic practitioner. It has allowed me to hone my feelings and intuition and it led me to become the right support and the right channel to my clients.

Energy blockages can hold you back in your life, It is essential to take the time to clear them and be totally empowered. At the same time, I discovered the power of the subconscious. It’s truly wonderful to live with more awareness and to use all opportunities, obstacles ; and experiences to learn something new and to grow.
Life is a journey. The caterpillar-to-butterfly transformation is possible for everyone with the right support and that is exaclty what I would like to share with you !
My main aim is to see people become more radiant, self-confident and full of vitality in order to live a totally happy life. So, let’s listen to your body and your mind together and let me show you how beautiful your journey can be !"
Carly has always felt a deep connection with the earth and all the creatures living therein. After completing her studies as an interior designer, her heart guided her to another -somewhat less travelled- road entirely, as she spent months living in the South African bush and gaining her field guide certification.
Carly’s other great loves are cooking and nurturing, which inspired her to train as a patisserie chef, learn canine hydrotherapy, host a slow food retreat and gain a diploma in canine health.
It was her abiding devotion to the creatures we share this earth with which led her to return to her roots, as she taught herself to craft mouth-wateringly delicious plant-based meals at her farm guest-house.
Combining her various and varied skills, Carly brings a stylishly earthy insight into nature’s bounty: sharing her knowledge about herbal remedies, foraged food, farm to table cooking, natural healing and more.
