Event description
The journey to self love isn't a simple formula or a one-size-fits-all approach. Self love is a personal journey that is unique to you.

About this Event


Everything starts with you.

This series is by application only due to the nature of this work. If interested after reading, please book your ticket to access your application form and to organise a 30 minute meet up to see that it's right for you.

Our unique life experiences mean we all have individual paths to living a life with Self Love. When we learn to explore our inner landscape, identify & recognise our own responses & practically apply our inner wisdom, we have the foundations to design a relationship of self love that’s fulfilling and unique to each of us.

This Series is for 6 women who are committed to their growth and have a true desire in learning to create self intimacy in a way never experienced before.

"The Journey Home is truly a transformation program. Deanne expertly guides you to deep dive & uncover aspects of yourself in a way that feels so natural, without the forcefulness & resistance that I’ve experienced with other personal growth programs. I learned to see myself, my experiences & my life with a whole new set of eyes – eyes of compassion, understanding & radical self-honesty which has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me & for that I’m so very grateful. A heart felt thank-you to you Deanne, you & your work is truly amazing. I know that doing this, has been one of those game-changing moments in my life."

C.O. - Self Love Woman, Facebook Review


Self Love Woman is the space holder for deep transformation, helping you to embrace your value, know your truth, and own your voice. Inspiring you to live a life that matters.

Questions to reflect on: 

  • Is trusting yourself and taking deliberate action based on what you feel challenging for you?

  • Do you find yourself feeling an inner truth rising within only to be shut down by self doubt? 

  • Do you wish you could speak what's truthfully in your heart without fear of judgement?

  • Do you wonder what life could be like if you were to confidently stand for yourself and your decisions without seeking external validation?

  • Are you constantly putting others first at the expense of yourself and what you really desire (treating yourself as second best)?

If you’ve said yes to any of these questions, I know how you feel, I’ve been there and I’ve spent the last 30 years exploring who I am with a sincere desire in knowing my own value, and navigating my life from this internal space.

My start to life was not an empowered one. From the young age of three, my childhood was saturated with emotional, sexual and physical abuse. Happening daily until I was 16 years old when I cultivated enough courage to start taking my power back. It was tough. I carried with me an immense amount of shame, self judgement and loads of self doubt. And it took the biggest decision and the strongest commitment to start living a life where I could begin to understand and embody what self love truly is (and let me say this - it's a very different ball game to self care).

Now, I can honestly say (hand on my heart) that I confidently continue to step forward in giant leaps practising this relationship of self love daily with myself. It’s been my biggest challenge and my greatest gift and I would love to share with you how you can design your relationship of self love, opening you to your own place of wholeness and self acceptance.

Regardless of your traumas, and the unhealed parts of yourself - big or small - to me, this is the most important work we can do for ourselves so we can become free.

You matter to me and I dearly want you to matter to you.

Learn about how I came to my place of self love


You'll learn:

  • how to operate from personal power, integrity, and inner authority,

  • to trust the answers that are already within you,

  • to experience inner freedom and peace regardless of circumstance or situation,

  • to give yourself full permission to be your first priority without guilt or apology; or the idea of being selfish,

  • to speak your truth without the debilitating fear of judgement,

  • how to cultivate inner safety so you stay present with your feelings,

  • you'll understand how to create an environment that's in alignment with the unparalleled respect that you have for yourself.

"My initial introduction to Deanne was through her Reiki sessions. She holds a very safe and gentle space for anyone who walks into her studio. Everything you need is in this beautiful space and I always walk out with a weight that has been lifted. But for me her best work has been through her SLW courses, mainly because I had to show up for myself - as myself, and while it can be confronting to see aspects of yourself good and not so great, this change has been the most significant for me. The Journey Home is an 8 - week course, and it’s truly shown me what self love means, how often I “check out”, where I can now show up for myself and how to trust my intuition and inner guidance as opposed to asking everyone else what they think I should do. Deanne is strong, vulnerable, authentic, loving, inspiring, courageous, fearless and a woman who embraces her life’s journey in every way."

S.G. - Self Love Woman Facebook Review



This is a high-touch, experiential program and is limited to 6 women only. This way I can give my full attention and mentorship to each woman who attends.

We'll be working from the perspective of all four bodies: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual/energetic. All four must be communicating and working harmoniously in order for true wholeness and integration to occur. 

We'll work within an intimate, healing and emotive space that encourages the exploration of deep internal processes and embodied experiences. This series will awaken and beautifully challenge your inner self. You'll do this through the use of your voice, embracing aspects of public speaking; including other expressional exercises to support your growth, accessing your deepest wisdom and vision for yourself. Everything presented in this series is intentionally focused on transformation (not just self help, it's my intention you know these processes deep in your bones); providing a clear understanding and pathway of what it means to design a relationship of 'real' self love. This series interweaves and builds upon itself week after week.

This energising work enables you to know and own your value, connecting you to your life force. 

As a powerful catalyst for change, you have the opportunity to experience your relationship ‘with you’ in a very different and empowered way.


❍ Women who are committed to their personal growth.

❍ Women who are ready to invest financially in themselves.

❍ Women who want to strengthen their understanding of who they are; movIng from thinking ('mindsetting' or 'intellectualising') their way through life to greatly perceiving, feeling and intuiting ('heartsetting') as a natural way of being. 

❍ Women who want to embrace self intimacy and deepen their self awareness.

❍ Women who know what self love is from a conceptual and superficial level (you've read all the books and articles), and still feel something that's not landed yet. For those of you who now have a desire to embrace, embody and live daily the practice (the 'how') of self love. 

❍ Women who are ready to unlearn and re-learn in such a way that allows alignment and living with peace and ease, taking hold of your truest truth.

If you are tired of looking outside of yourself for the answers and want to feel fulfilled, stable, and grounded within your centre, then this series is for you.

There is no pre-requisite for The Journey Home, only a willingness to surrender and be present for your change.


What did you learn about yourself throughout the series?

❍ How to truly embody self love and self trust. Understanding different blocks that I had especially when it came to the drama triangle and the shadow aspects. I felt I really gained a lot more clarity and understanding within myself. Also for me the connection between vulnerability and courage was the catalyst for truly feeling self love.

What did you most value about the series?

❍ The blend and balance between the written work sheets and having that cohesively correlate with soul work - real deep stuff. 

Was this series any different from other personal development courses/workshops - if so, how?

❍ Yes. It was deeper but still had content (worksheets, etc.) that was easy to follow. I also loved how everything interweaved. There was flow between the weeks but also felt there was freedom to explore and be flexible for what came up.

Want to fully yourself.

Want to yourself.

Want to yourself.

The moment you learn to love yourself is the moment you reclaim your wholeness.

Love Deanne

PS: The Journey Home isn't for everyone. For transformation and change to occur, we must be willing to move through discomfort so we may grow. If you are unable or prepared to allow for discomfort, then this series is not for you. And that's ok. And if you are, you will be fully supported.

Deanne's Healing Google Reviews


What did you learn about yourself throughout the series?

❍ Self love is a multifaceted journey - like a fingerprint it's unique to each person. For me, it will be a daily choice to see myself with new eyes - eyes of compassion, understanding and self honesty. It's not a forceful act but is an open curiosity about myself and confidence to do what feels best for me. 

What did you most value about the series?

❍ The way each session built on itself from the previous weeks.

❍ The emphasis on vocalising and connecting to our truths.

❍ The community that is built and the opportunity to learn from everyone's experiences. 

Was this series any different from other personal development courses/workshops - if so, how?

❍ Yes: although this work goes very deep, it goes deep in a way that feels natural - where you feel comfortable in discomfort. It doesn't feel forceful and pushing like I have experienced in other healing and personal growth programs. 

CAROLINE, Melbourne

What did you learn about yourself throughout the series?

❍ I had learned that I had stopped feeling. I had cut off connection and in doing so stopped myself from experiencing self love. The series then taught me HOW to experience connection, love, and vulnerability with myself. I learnt through EXPERIENCING and ALLOWING (not through studious studies) the connection, compassion, awareness and responsibility it requires to love myself. I learnt to 'allow'. 

What did you most value about the series?

❍ I valued most the support, love and compassion by Deanne and also the courageous and loving women walking this journey with me. I valued being able to have space held for me that was REAL, in honesty and in love - it wasn't 'fluffy', it was genuine, it was human - it was powerful women guided by a powerful woman walking the journey home. 

Was this series any different from other personal development courses/workshops - if so, how?

❍ The difference with this series comes in through the 'experiencing' of the work. Of creating time and space for integration of experiences rather than fast tracked lessons over a day workshop that aren't given the time to really sink in and become embodied. The difference comes in the creation of embodiment that the series sustains.

MADDISON, Melbourne

What did you learn about yourself throughout the series?

❍ So much!! I've truly let go of emotions I had suppressed and was holding onto for all of my life. I've learned to embrace my vulnerability and feel as well as share my feelings. I'm learning to let go of control and to trust life and myself. I've let go of so much emotional baggage I no longer need to carry.

What did you most value about the series?

❍ Your ability to guide us through this very well thought out and deliberate journey, making sure to gently but firmly hold us accountable to feeling and not just thinking and going through the motions. Every week was an 'aha' moment that lead to the shift in energy so big it could be felt and seen in every part of me. 

Was this series any different from other personal development courses/workshops - if so, how?

❍ Yes! This felt authentic and was designed in a way that we were able to feel and not just talk things through. It is an energy shift, not just a shift of the mind. I feel my essence and energy, rather than just thinking about it. Having discussions and insights from other participants was invaluable. 

ARDI, Melbourne

What did you learn about yourself throughout the series?

❍ That I need to be my own friend. I learned that I'm a good person who is worthy of so much. Believing in myself and acknowledging that I have so much to offer. Being self responsible and being okay with the wobbly and uncomfortable moments as storms don't last forever.

What did you most value about the series?

❍ Connecting with other women; small group size with even numbers; connecting with Deanne when I really needed it and knowing she had my back, having a safe space to crack wide open.

Was this series any different from other personal development courses/workshops - if so, how?

❍ Yes, this felt super raw. Something that is indescribable and compares to nothing else. Other courses haven't been as long or with a small group, so intimacy within the environment wasn't there like it was with this course, plus being able to talk to Deanne really helped along the way.
