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 who feel like they are lost and alone have no voice at work, home or within relationships, embrace who they really are around others.


I never really understood why I felt so alone, lost, fearful, anxious and unfulfilled in life. 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, but I was scared.

My earliest memories of trauma started in my teenage years with 2 significant events that changed the course of my life. The first I was bullied. I felt alone. Constantly questioning my self-worth, and trying do the right thing by others was exhausting.

The second incident was a near death experience, where the car I was travelling lost control around a corner at 140 km/h. Somehow, we survived but I spent the next 15 plus years closing myself off to the world struggling with undiagnosed PTSD.

“It’s not what happens. It’s what we make it mean.”

From that moment on, these events meant I could trust no one.

The pattern of bullying and pleasing others continued throughout university and my teaching career, with the same problems and challenges.

To keep myself safe, I ran from the fears that consumed my days and nights and numb them with alcohol. When emotions crippled me in an instant, I avoided them with exercise.

My relationship also suffered by all these events. As my relationship grew closer and more connected, the pattern of getting too close and trusting people reared its ugly head. To protect myself I found problems with our connection.

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 but I think a part of me thought it was a chance to escape and run again.

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.

Embracing all of me and who I was, was difficult. I knew I was one fun-loving, heart centred chick, with a bright intuitive side and a smart analytical mind. But for me to accept my intuitive psychic abilities was hard. 

Over the years I had always suddenly known things, before they happened, or thought about something and then it occurs. My abilities continue to open but at the same time I was scared to fully embrace that side of me. I always felt different, knew I was not like others and this would set me further apart. But that’s where I found the beautiful healing modality of Reiki.


shedding the mask

Searching for reassurance and courage. I accidentaly discovered the healing modality of Reiki.

I loved the gentle way Reiki gave me a new sense of vibrancy, clarity and purpose without talking. The heavy layers of doubt, insecurity and uncertainty, ingrained over the years simply melted away.

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

Layer by layer peeling away my fear, I could feel my confidence grow and my acceptance of who I truly was started to fall into place. My psychic and mediumship abilities continue to grow and open and finally I started to feel free. I no longer needed to fit into what society wanted me to be or feel embarassed I had these beautiful abilities to offer the world. 

uncovering the real me

Clinical Resource Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy and were also gifts I discovered by chance.

Through exploring my mindset, removing my fears, self-doubt, anxiety, PTSD, limitations and other past baggage.

My thoughts and ideas about my world and the people around me started to change. The real me began to emerge and my husband fully embraced every part of me as well. My marriage was saved!

As I fully stepped into all the parts of my life including my spiritual side. The life that I thought was falling apart was coming back together in perfect harmony. The feelings of being alone, not accepted, and judged continue to just slip away.

I want to reassure you, that you are not alone. If you feel different, lack confidence and searching for answers to how your life can be different. I’ve walked this path for many years and slowly but surely I am climbing onto the exact path of where I am meant to be. 

I now help all different kinds of people who feel lost, alone and have these exact difficulties. I help you clear off negative emotions, addictive behaviours, anxiety and stress which prevent you from embracing who you really are.

I felt so unsure and unsafe of stepping onto this path, facing my fears and my deepest and darkest shadows. Now I create a nurturing environment for others to feel a sense of safety and support to do the same.

There’s no magic wand, quick fix or pill to this journey. But I do know with persistent effort and commitment to yourself, it’s so worth it.


Look forward to connecting with 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!
