it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.                                                                                                                            Maya Angelou

Beautiful one, my name is Carlene Kupke

I help people heal their past traumas when their whole world has been turned upside, and assist them to rediscovering parts of their soul.


I never really understood why I felt so alone, lost, fearful, anxious and unfulfilled in life. On the outside I had it all! An amazing career, husband and lived in a beautiful seaside suburb. But it felt not enough, there was something missing. I felt there was more to this world, and I longed for deeper connections and more richness in my life.  

My teaching career that I once loved, did not give me as much joy as it used to. I continued to feel totally disconnected from my husband. Life that I once knew was falling apart and I was in a constant state of anxiety, fear and stress. 

I continued to avoid all my feelings and fill this space with exercise, emotional eating, people pleasing, alcohol and more behaviours. That I thought at the time helped, but the emotions and feelings were still surfacing.

The bullying I had experienced from high school, university and my first teaching job plagued me every day. Constantly questioning my self-worth, what’s wrong with me and emphasising the feelings of being lost and alone.

On top of that the car accident that nearly took my life when I was a teenager, continued to surface as PTSD. Something I had hidden from everyone for 20 plus years. 

I wanted to seek help and talk to someone, but I was so scared and I did not really know who I could trust. I finally had the courage to seek some psychic guidance on what I should do with my life, and this sparked my curiosity.

one door closes: one door opens

When I was asked to teach in Cambodia I leaped and quit my 15-year teaching career into the unknown. Maybe this would fill that empty space and longing for more. But I know a part of me thought it was a chance to escape and run from my life altogether.

And that’s when the real me, started to emerge.

Embracing all of me

The emotional roller coaster of quitting and losing began very quickly.

The part of me that I thought I knew, was gone. I had lost complete idea of my identity and where I belonged in this world. The feelings of helplessness, unworthiness, being alone, fear, anxiety and the rest continued to surface.

That’s when I accidentally discovered the healing modality of Reiki. 

Slowly I started to heal my past with Reiki, but to embrace my intuitive abilities was hard. Deep within me I always felt different, I knew I was not like others. But I knew I had to take this risk to open up to my spiritual side, as I wanted to feel happy again.

shedding the mask

Clinical Resource Therapy, NLP, Hypnosis and TLT and were also gifts I discovered by chance. Through exploring my mindset, my thoughts and ideas about my world changed.

The so called “real me” began to emerge and my husband fully embraced every part of me as well.

The constant overthinking and worrying started to disappear. My head felt clear, at peace and almost empty.

uncovering the real me

Just as you feel your life is starting to bloom and you think you’re on the right path, I was thrown another curve ball.

My whole world as I knew it crashed down in front of me. The close connections and those that I thought I could trust, no longer could be trusted. The same pattern of bullying and narcissism had surfaced again.

I thought I had healed this pattern? But as I found out, it needed a much deeper level of healing.

This time my health was failing me. I had severe pains and fatigue, to the point where I could only walk 45 minutes in a day. Weekly Reiki healings and the physical symptoms and other feelings continue to just slip away.

New intuitive abilities started to emerge out of nowhere. Another “new me”!

a continuous cycle

Life continues to throw us lessons, triggers and challenges to help us grow, it becomes a continuous cycle of growth unlocking, remembering and changing. At times it pushes you down to the very brink of your existence, where nothing makes sense and it feelings like a never ending cycle of hopelessness, loss and feeling alone.

But as life throws you curve balls it’s what you start to do with them that creates the changes in your lifeFacing and healing our triggers, past and unconscious memories is not an easy ride. But with serious determination and commitment, I assure you, you’ll move through the other side a different person. 

If your soul is craving for more richness, happiness and deeper connection in your life, then I would love to hear from you. 


Much love

My connection has become so flowing since our session. I’ve had to send love to that previous memory several times and wish it well but remind myself it has no place in this life any more. And things have really started to change. My weight continues to drop and I can see and feel the difference. My clothes are looser. I’m finally listening to my heart and my soul. Your session gave me the clarity to do that. Once you helped me identify clearly what the issue was, I knew what I needed to do. So thank you Carlene. I feel such lightness and clarity.

I had a fantastic Emotional Freedom Therapy session with Carlene yesterday. It was to let go of grief. Carlene listened so well and asked all the appropriate questions. She also listened to what was NOT being said. After a few rounds of tapping and release I could feel the sadness shifting to happiness.

It is really amazing what this therapy can do when led by an highly professional therapist like Carlene!

Thank you and I would highly recommend you to reach out to her.

Thank you!

The appointments we had were so helpful! I’ve been using EFT Tapping for several years now, but it was so helpful to have help from your perspective.

This has helped when I’m tapping on my own, a lot of forward movement, old memories were cleared.

I appreciate you!
