Hi I am Geraldine Zadkiel, founder of Heart Connection - A Self Empowered Approach to Health.  I have been specialising in Anxiety, Depression, PTSD and Childhood Trauma for over 15 years now.  As a qualified Kinesiologist and Meditation Facilitator my focus is to empower you to be free from pain.  Physical Mental or Emotional Pain.  


First and Foremost I am deeply passionate about working with emotions and healing past trauma on all levels, specifically childhood abuse and trauma. I work directly with subconscious behavioural and emotional patterns to identify original patterns causing disharmony and pain, whether that be physical pain (disease, injury, chronic pain), Emotional Pain (Depression, Anxiety) or Mental Pain (Overthinking, Insomnia).


I believe that happiness starts with the first step towards change and an understanding that healing is a process of the movement of energy. My entire business is structured around "A Self Empowered Approach To Health." This means I want to empower you to heal yourself by giving you the tools to do this, both on a conscious and subconscious level.


You have the power to heal yourself!
