Working with Amber this year has been fundamentally life changing. I don’t make that statement lightly. It’s the biggest and best investment I have made in myself to date - Rebecca Riley
Alchemy is like nothing you have ever seen before.
It’s not coaching, it's not therapy, it's not healing, it's not meditation, it's not neurological re-wiring, it's not even cathartic extraction of all your buried parts that need to surface, be seen, be heard and cleared the fuck out.
It's more or less, all of it.
What sets it apart is not a new technique, nor is it “the” way, a higher knowledge, enlightened mentors, special processes, or coaching tools. It's not even the delicious retreat food (even though it’s fucking delicious).
No. It’s the format. And that, love, would be you. You are the format, the process, the guidebook, the steps and the solution.
We combine all of you and where you are, with exactly where you want to go and we:
a) remove what it is that you, specifically as an individual being, have taken on, suppressed, raised walls to, or have simply bypassed, that’s preventing you from reaching that. And we,
b) empower you as a human being (and let’s be fucking real, an infinite soul) and show you the fundamental block that you’re facing in your world that all of us need to overcome in our lives.
Being part of the retreat and working with Amber was the scariest, bravest and most worthwhile thing I have ever committed to. It was the best decision of my life

And I'm here to tell you that this kind of alchemy isn't found in a news feed scroll or IGTV binge.
This is the real deal that requires human to human, open-heart to open-heart connection, where you can learn and master some of the most profound foundational tools, whilst doing the deep embodiment work.
Like, the bottom of Trumps fears kinda deep. Oh yep, did I mention bad jokes are also totally necessary? Loads of them. Because what's the potency and power without the play?
This is what Alchemy is all about.
The ultimate balance of learning, sharing, delving, releasing, revealing, growing, wisdom tapping, heart opening, battery charging and manifesting. Simultaneously working through your blocks whilst learning to embody what it is to flow and cultivate confidence and resilience from within.
Alchemy is my signature program that brings the best of both worlds together to give you the firm love and support you need whilst challenging you to be the highest version of yourself.
Through both one on one coaching with me and a powerful retreat experience, you finally open yourself up to the most potent experience of working through fears, blocks and resistance in a way that sees you knowing and loving yourself on a level you don't even know exists yet.
And ultimately, isn't that really everything you've been wanting all along?
Let me give you an example...
Let’s say you have a deeply fulfilling life, partner and lovely kids. You even love your career, but in all honesty, you find yourself sometimes shrinking back, feeling a little insecure about whether you’re really that good. You may or may not be aware but (for example) that’s why you also can’t seem to make any more money than just enough, or find the discipline to care for you body the way you know you could. You think this might just be it, but actually; No. Fuck that. The pull inside you is fierce. An undeniable knowing from deep within, that knows that nothing else is going to set you free. Hmm, but wait - it doesn’t really seem too tangible. A pull??? I mean, c’mon. Where are the stats on a knowing?
There aren’t any. And it's frustrating because you know it to be true in your insides. But your head says, mate, just keep working harder. Learn more, grind more, stop complaining.
And to that, at Alchemy, we sit in appreciation of the necessity to honour logic, whilst simultaneously knowing it's time to finally dive head first into that heart of yours. We crack the walls wide open to life and master the mind that keeps holding you back.
We take the symptom that you’re experiencing and together, discover where it began. What it's root of existence is for you as an individual and address the neurological, emotional and energetic blocks created from that root.
Then, as a being, we learn about the universal challenge you’re coming up against so that you can see it when it arises in the future and also apply it to other areas of your life.
The work we do is deep, it’s raw, it’s mental, emotional, spiritual, and most of all, it will change your life beyond recognition.
No, not overnight. We plant seeds and remove weeds and it takes time to grow your garden. You’ll notice your lightness as you pull out the weeds that are sucking the energy from your life, and the changes, well, like roots that take time to grow deep and wide, you’ll be turning around in 6-12 months wondering with love in your heart, who the fuck that person was that you hardly recognise.
"It is really hard to describe or put into words just how much working with Amber has changed my life, my mind and my soul. With her knowledge and guidance I challenge myself, I motivate my own behaviour and I am the messy human and unfuckwithable version of me that I am – I love that!!!
Being part of the retreat and working with Amber was the scariest, bravest and most worthwhile thing I have ever committed to. Real and accountable, in a supported group of individual people with AMAZING support staff. Our group exercise on unconditional love had a profound effect on me, no bullshit and raw – it simply took my breath away.
Would I do it all over again?….. You betcha!! It was the best decision of my life."
"Working with Amber this year has been fundamentally life changing. I don’t make that statement lightly, but it’s the biggest and best investment I have made in myself to date. I came into working with Amber thinking I had a pretty good level of self-awareness and understanding, but it was all taken up several notches during our coaching calls together. Amber has a unique ability to see though your bullsh*t and help you identify the root causes of what’s going on.
Because of the deep level Amber works at with her clients, I feel like the changes I have made are sustainable and long-lasting, because they are rooted in my core truths and values. It’s not easy work, stripping back layers of beliefs and ideas that no longer serve, but it’s also ultimately rewarding and living a life of purpose, truth and acceptance."
"Attending Amber’s Alchemy retreat had a fabulous effect on my mind, body and soul. I went having only meditated on a couple of occasions, with a body that was letting me down both functionally and mentally. I was surrounded by people that had different goals and understandings in regards to mental health and mindfulness. While on the retreat I worked through many patterns and wounds that had been holding me back and learned where to start in my meditation journey. Since coming back I have a passion for my mental wellness and giving myself space to feel and surrender. I have also gained a connection with an amazing group of supportive and inspirational people who have enabled me to feel more connected to society as a whole."
It's all about strength and unity. Safety and depth. Nurture and nourish. Pushing boundaries. Let our defences down. A space to be. A space to laugh so hard your belly hurts. And perhaps cry a little, or a lot, if need be.
