I am a native of County Cork and moved to Limerick in the early '90's. Having had a professional career in the software industry for twenty years, I became more and more interested and curious in personal development and freedom. It was during a particularly difficult time when my first marriage had broken down and I believed I had lost everything, was no-one and had no future. I found that that the only time I felt somewhat 'OK' and forgot myself was when I sang in a local community choir. As my healing journey began from this place, I started to delve deeper into the power of the voice, the power of sound and the power of the breath in an attempt to rediscover freedom and joy and peace in my life. This incredible journey lead me to study with some of the most incredible teachers of voice, poetry, breath and movement and then to train in order to share this with others.
My work comes from a desire to serve, to seek in myself and in all those I meet that place of wholeness which is already inside and has often been hidden by earlier conditioning and past traumas, old beliefs that we need to do, to be, something or someone ‘else’ or that we are not good enough or whole and perfect enough as we are... it is a process of rediscovering and remembering your wholeness.
Having gone through my own (always ongoing...) healing journey and I am using the experience, insights and teachings I have learned through that to work with others on their challenges. This means that I come from a place of understanding the human condition, understanding sadness, grief, confusion, depression, shame, stuckness, aloneness, disconnection and so on... and offering the tools and wisdom I have gained through many trainings and experience with my clients.
The type of work that I'm so passionate about is through voice, sound, breath and poetry. I work in both group and individual settings incorporating all the modalities and experience to serve my clients.
My wish is help those who sense that they have been living behind a mask of ‘normality’ for a long time and are now ready to discover who they really are and re-connect with that buried self and start living their lives guided from a strong internal sense of confidence, belonging and wellness. Often there is a sense of having lost one’s true voice and my work offers a reconnection and a remembering of that voice opening up all the possibilities that have been denied.
I see my work as more than a profession, it is a calling, to firstly discover true freedom in myself and then offer that experience and wisdom to others who are called to work with me.
I have had the honour of sharing all that I have learned in workshops, retreats, trainings and one to one sessions. It is such a joy to me to share this work in my own unique way. My deepest passion, my commitment to myself and my invitation to all that I meet is freedom. Freedom to live fully, undefended lives and to your full potential.

Lucia Sheehan is one of those special people who, on first meeting, you feel at home. She comes from a place of love and kindness in all she does. That is why I put myself in her capable hands for a sound healing. It was such a beautiful experience. From the offset, Lucia made me feel safe and loved. She performed the session with skill and compassion. The overall result was profound and very powerful. I would highly recommend Lucia. Nadine
