My name is Christine Wehrmeier, founder of Kokoro Healing Space. I am originally from Australia but have lived in 6 countries and have been living in Iceland since 2020.

I founded Kokoro Healing Space in 2021 to serve as an online healing space and community.

Experiencing burnout and a mid-life crisis in 2017 forced me to stop and take a really good look at my life. My life and health were in a terrible state and I knew I could not keep living as I had been.

Although I already had a psychology degree and a massage qualification under my belt, I had become engrossed in the corporate world for much of my life. In 2018 I quit my corporate career and turned all my attention to changing my life and learning as much as possible about natural health and wellbeing.

The biggest turning point for me was discovering TRE®. It helped me connect with my body and heal trauma in way I’d never been able to do with other therapies or counselling before. With regular practise and guidance from my trainer, I experienced a complete transformation and a new found appreciation for the healing capacity of our bodies.

I continued to study as much as possible about trauma healing, somatic practises, stress management and I discovered all kinds of fantastic tools and knowledge that we all deserve to know about ourselves.

I was thus inspired to turn my energy towards helping others to heal and live their lives wholeheartedly.

KOKORO is a Japanese word that loosely means “heart, mind, spirit”. I am half Japanese and it has always been my favourite word, so the name chose itself really.

I welcome you wholeheartedly to Kokoro Healing Space.
