practices community relations to help heal rifts between people and communities and create positive change.
uses her creative ideas, PR and marketing communication skills to promote and improve the operation of community-minded groups and organisations.
she promotes moving from an unhealthy, total dependence on technology, which has caused the destruction of our personal and planetary health, to using our intuition and creativity to restore peace, and connection amongst people and the planet.
encourages us to listen to those who have wisdom and to use love and dialogue and not war to solve conflicts.
Silvana has worked in marketing, public and community relations. She has also worked in the broadcast media, the music industry, for large corporates through to smaller community groups.
Always fascinated with the mind and what motivates human behaviour, she changed her trajectory to study counselling and pastoral care.
Having faced her own health challenge, she began writing a blog to help others on a similar journey. The blog also supported her work as a counsellor. She discovered a long-buried love of writing and decided to purse a career as a writer to help promote spiritual and emotional growth and help build stronger communities. Her aim is to support and inspire others on their life journey.
As a writer and a counsellor she uses a variety of techniques to help people work on their various issues, and improve the quality of their life.
Some of the techniques she uses include:
Encouraging clients and her readers to seek out knowledge through books, counselling and online resources.
Creative pursuits to help still the mind and encourage healing and wellbeing, to bring joy through the process of creation and to tap into the invisible source that helps us create beauty in the world.
