Authentic Reflexology in the Algarve 2018

22nd May 2018

Therapy for mind and body in sunny Algarve

I had a dream in 2018 so I decided to explore a way to make it real. A life in the sun can sound exotic when you’re used to the cold and rain. In previous years, travel brought healing & heightened creativity and my confidence soared after every exploration. My journey in Peru is one example, when I lived in a small town in the Sacred Valley near Machu Picchu. The lessons I’ve learned through travel have served me in business and life.

Luckily, Portugal’s Algarve is closer to home, with regular flight options and it’s even in the same time zone as Ireland. I imagined the people who could benefit from my relaxing therapeutic reflexology treatments and coaching programmes while being surrounded by the beauty of the sunny Algarve.

Authentic Reflexology in the Algarve

I found a therapy room in Carvoeiro, a picturesque fishing village with a pretty beach. It’s a tranquil place offering good food, gorgeous sunsets, morning walks along cliff tops, boat trips to solitary beaches and caves and ambient street festival entertainment to pass the night, Carvoeiro had it all. 

It was an exciting time, travelling to a new country, making new connections and making new opportunities. Such a different life than the one I was living prior to 1999 when I worked as a maths and science teacher burning myself and not paying attention to my wellbeing. I’ve written lots of stories about my Authentic Path because I want more people to see that life can be so much more when you step out of your comfort zone and confront your fears. 

The Algarve was my home for a very short while and I got a taste of what it is like to live there. Life has changed since the coronavirus pandemic that swept the world. I will definitely return the Algarve it’s not far from home.

I provide personalised reflexology treatment plans and coaching services to people who dare to be authentic and want to make their dreams a reality. The best guides are the ones who have walked the path, academic knowledge doesn’t come close to lived experience. Let me help you on your Authentic Path. Check out my range of books, online courses and coaching programmes.

  • I Discovered My Passion

    I was stressed with a lot going on in my life. I needed to find space to clear my mind. Caroline helped me to relax. Then, by asking me a few relevant questions I got an ‘aha moment’. I left with an idea for starting a new business doing something I really care about. I discovered my passion and left feeling energised.

  • More Aware of Signs of Stress & Anxiety

    The biggest benefit of the coaching programme was having someone to listen to me, who ‘gets’ what’s going on with me. Caroline helped me to put in place a step by step self-care routine. Also, I’m more aware of the signs of anxiety and stress now and am able to do things that reduce their effects.

    Caroline poems are soothing and inspiring. Her words have the power to captivate and charm the soul.

Reading poetry is an instant way of inviting peace and tranquillity into your life. Caroline combines both in ‘The Whisperings of Nature’.
