Empowering You to Live a Happier, Richer and Fulfilling Life!
Hi, I'm Carolina the heart, soul and founder of Heartstream Wellness Centre and the powerful and transformative process called the Heartstream Process. To discover more about the Heartstream Process click here.
I feel very honoured to be practising and helping many others be free of their emotional and mental health challenges, quickly and permanently so they no longer need to continue to suffer unnecessarily.
The Start of My Healing Journey
It was not always like this, in fact, rewind 22 years ago and I was in a very different place. I was a successful lawyer in the UK, married with a young daughter and on the surface, it appeared that I had it all together but underneath I was struggling, trying to be perfect in every aspect of my life, and my health was suffering. I was overweight, had developed health issues and I was exhausted. I was admitted to hospital in a critical state. I was told by the cardiologist that my "heart has doubled in size as a result of having your foot down hard on the accelerator" and had I not been admitted that week I would not be alive today.
This really was my wake up call. I had to face myself for the first time and ask myself “what am I doing that no longer serves me and my family; how can I change my life starting now”.
Nothing in mainstream medicine could help. I knew in my heart that something deeper was going on so I began to research and discovered the field of holistic health. To discover that illness was a “dis” “ease” in the mind, body and spirit from an Eastern perspective was a revelation to me.
The Road to Healing and Self Discovery
I began counselling, yoga classes, walking in nature, made significant changes in my diet, all of which helped but nothing seemed to shift permanently or consistently this deep discomfort within me. Quite by chance, I was told about EFT Tapping and despite some scepticism, I booked to see a practitioner. I kept thinking what have I got to lose.
From my first session, I began to release the traumas of my past which unbeknownst to me lay at the very root of my anxiety and physical health issues. I felt a huge relief and release from that first session and I was hooked.
I had no idea that my past traumas lay at the root of my anxiety and that it became the doorway to my recovery.
At first, I was unsure this could last but it did and I continued my journey with EFT, Matrix Reimprinting and other therapies to heal my own past and discover who I truly was under all the layers of trauma.
I later began to train in the UK with Alan Morisson, who was then a certified trainer with AAMET (the International Association for Meridian and Energy Therapies) now EFT International and continued to train in New Zealand where I now live with my family.
The Benefits I experienced with EFT Tapping
The results I experienced in working with EFT and similar somatic therapies were many and included:-
A vast improvement in my physical health. The falling away of excess body weight without trying, I no longer needed to comfort eat.
A dramatic reduction in my anxiety and the lifting of my depression,
I began to live my passion and do what I loved based on my natural qualities,
I became a much more tolerant, confident and happy mum and a much better role model for my daughters,
Most of all I was finally able to accept myself fully and completely.
I still have challenges that arise, but having the tools that I have learnt I know that I can move through these challenges with greater ease and resilience.
In recent years I have been practising meditation and incorporating ancient Eastern wisdom teachings into my everyday life. These teachings and daily practice have helped me to stay balanced, focused and calm and to grow in greater compassion for myself and others.
I qualified as a solicitor in the UK (LLB Hons) in 1992 and practised family law in England for over 10 years. With marriage and the arrival of my two daughters, I chose to become a full-time mum, carer and householder. Travelling and living in different parts of the world and eventually settling in New Zealand in 2008, I gained many life experiences and an understanding of other cultures.
I began training in EFT in the UK in 2006 and have continued my training in EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, and NLP. I have been in practice since 2013 working with clients here in NZ and around the world. I am a professional member of EFT International (EFTi) and the EFT & Matrix Reimprinting Academy (EFTMRA) and an Accredited and Certified Practitioner.
(These Associations require continuing professional development as well as regular supervision. This ensures that my competence, knowledge and skills are up to date and relevant to the services I provide.)
I first met Carolina when doing one of her weekend EFT courses. Her story was genuinely sad and touching, and yet to see the dynamic, happy, strong, empathetic woman in front of me was astounding - truly. She worked on herself using the skills she practices, and changed herself and her life, releasing past suffering, guilt, shame.
During my subsequent sessions with her, she helped me release many dark, old, twisted (and totally obsolete) experiences and memories that felt embedded and stuck. She did this with intuition, insight, empathy, sensitivity, humour and lack of judgment. It seems that those who have overcome their greatest obstacles in life and who understand what it is to suffer, often want to help others and Carolina embodies this.
If you’re even slightly curious that she could help you, get in touch. You will not be disappointed, and have your peace and freedom to gain.

"Words cannot express how much I respect, value and trust Carolina in her skills as a therapist, healer. mentor and human being. Her professionalism and confidentiality allow for a trustworthy relationship and her skills and life experience really truly helped me overcome and deal with stuck limiting beliefs from the past.
Personally, the Heartstream Process work was so powerful on clearing old patterns and pain, I didn't even realise I was still carrying. I understand now why it is called emotional freedom therapy, as the freedom, I now feel after only after a few sessions around past trauma and pain is a miracle.
I recommend Carolina to others and they too have had incredible results. Thank you, Carolina, for sharing your skills. knowledge and healing energy with me and others. Namaste"
