"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."
Neil Gaiman, Coraline
"I took a deep breath and a voice in my head said: Maybe the resistance in trying to beat our inner dragons or tame them is not at all the path to self redemption from Trauma. Especially at moments when our dragons awake. What if we were actually killing our own brilliance. From there on, my entire healing journey changed, instead, I learned to dance with the dragons. Long story short, the subsequent learning was metamorphic."
An Inner Factory Immersion Experience Based on Women Who Run With The Wolves by Marisa Pinkola Estes
A specially dedicated series for empowering women or anyone who identifies as a women or embraces his/er feminine energy. Not only that Ghada delivers this series out of the inspiration and inner-mothering she received throughout reading the book, but also combined with her own journey; healing from traumas of abuse and oppression, rebelling against the mainstream and as a liberal British Egyptian who rebelled against most givens in both societies to make her own. All intertwined by her holistic and integrative practices and approaches to deliver an experience where she feels necessary to be passed on from one woman to the other in honour of awakening the witchcraft of those who are keepers of old stories to transform through the power of their authenticity.

My name is Ghada Sharif. I founded The Hoopoe House as part of my vision to create a place where human beings can come to for healing and transformation. So far this is a virtual house, offering multi-disciplinary therapies and approaches to attaining well-being. I wanted to offer a "Coming home" presence where people are listened to, loved unconditionally, values non judgmentally and served professionally. I am passionate about illuminating light on the being experience; to facilitate the path through which human beings can attain their optimal bio-individual potential; whereby the quality of their their experience on earth is elevated.
I am an Integrative Healing and Holistic Wellbeing Practitioner; I work through a number of approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy, Positive Psychology, Transcendental Psychology, Existential Humanistic Psychology, Healing through Storytelling, Integrative Nutrition and Health Coaching, Authenticity, Empowered Connections and Creative Performance Coaching.
I am what you can call an Embodied or Holistic Therapist. I believe in working holistically and interactively and that we can only fully heal holistically on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels in no specific order.
I do immersive experiences via zoom, face-time, skype and face to face. I call my clients Well-being Seekers, so if you are one and want to learn more about me read part of my stories here and here and drop me a line to tell me more about you and how can I support you at this stage in your journey.
