  • Pascale Schroenn - phone: +27 83 265 7977; e-mail:
    Over the past 20 or more years, Pascale has been discovering how to navigate her life through joy and learning how to evolve from her small self into her big self, her Divine self. She believes we are such magnificent beings and yet we live so much of our lives contained; contained by the lens through which we view life, by our unconscious patterns and behaviours, by other people’s ideas of how we should be living, by our fears - by our small self - the one that keep us from living our biggest, most expanded and joyful lives. One of the most powerful tools she discovered to guide us in stepping out of this containment is the Enneagram. “The Enneagram, much more than just a personality profile that tells us how we might behave, highlights the underlying motivations, defence mechanisms, and fears buried in the unconscious layers of the psyche. It reveals the why behind the what of our thinking, feeling and actions... .” If you would like to find out more about how the Enneagram works, contact Pascale.
  • Maryann Franke - Choices Holistic Healing; phone: +72 83 250 7312
    Maryann is a Biochemic Therapist who utilises Tissue Salts to restore balance in our bodies.  Minerals that are essential for the proper functioning of cells in our bodies are often found to be deficient in some way as we are sometimes unable to obtain the necessary minerals from the food that we eat, and the stresses of our lifestyles also have the effect of depleting minerals. Restoring mineral balance to the cells enables our bodies to function optimally and to restore health.  Tissue salts can safely be utilised by babies, children, adults, pregnant ladies, and even animals.  Consultations can be done in person or on Zoom.  Please visit her website for further information.
  • Carike Laroque - phone: +72 83 278 7708; e-mail:
    Carike is an internationally recognised Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) Health Coach and Bach Flower Remedy Practitioner, who offers Bach consultations for the balancing of negative and extreme emotions, moods and personality traits. The Bach remedies help us cope with everyday stresses and strains and with continued use of the remedies, they also guide us towards finding our true purpose and potential. They are gentle yet profound in their working. Carike conducts confidential client interviews online via Zoom or by phone. She is mainly concentrating on supporting people with emotional stress and anxiety at the moment. We all need balance in our lives to function optimally and harmoniously. We need balance between our minds, our bodies and our souls. Imbalance, if left long enough will manifest itself in poor life style choices, which will lead to stresses, pressures and eventually ill health, inflammation and disease.
