The Sacred Nest

Nurturing Wellbeing for All Abilities

The Sacred Nest is a nature-inspired sensory studio and garden that was purpose built to reduce over-stimulation, particularly for those who are sensitive to their environment. In this calming space, we deliver therapeutic programs that are tailored to a diverse range of clients, with an emphasis on reducing anxiety and improving health and wellbeing. 


Wellbeing through the Senses...


… I’m Cynthia the creator of The Sacred Nest, welcome to my website! I started my journey to build the nest in 2016, but the real journey was over many years and continues today. My lived-experience as food scientist, a mother and a carer of two children with diverse abilities has driven me to learn more about the environmental and lifestyle choices that contribute to our physical, mental and emotional health.

With a passion for learning, I have expanded my knowledge and training over the years to encompass nutrition and gut health; neuroscience and sensory processing; and the many benefits of being in natural spaces and living mindfully. My goal is to share some of this knowledge with you to empower you to nurture your own nest, in a practical and sustainable way.

All of my programs are evidence-based and can be tailored to your needs. To enhance therapy outcomes, I also offer Support Programs for clients with diverse abilities. You can learn more about me and my training here.

Whether you are an individual, a family or an organisation, I would love to work with you to achieve your wellbeing goals.
