Welcome to Heart Place with Nurse Jacqui

Nurturing wellness at every age & stage of life.

Heart Place with Nurse Jacqui (and previous BeYOUtiful Young Women) was born after a mixture of self-discovery, and thoughts of ‘if only I knew then what I know now’. There was so much about ourselves including the menstrual cycle, really important things about us as Carers that we’d never been taught. Not at school, not from our mothers, nor from our friends. So many people still don’t know this information. It’s my mission to teach all Carers including our future Carers to understand and celebrate their body and mind so they can create UNSTOPPABLE inner- confidence, self-belief and their own self-worth.

These wonderful individuals are the people who deal with our most vulnerable citizens – our children, the sick, and the elderly. I believe that with holistic support our Carers and future Carers will be better equipped to handle the demand of their vital roles. And how much better would that be for both the Carer and the recipient of their care?

I think you’ll all agree the world desperately needs truly empowered Carers and future Carers who are fiercely aware that everything about their body and mind happens for a reason

Meet Jacqui

Jacqui O’Connor

Did you always want to be in a Caring or Giving role? A nurse, teacher, social worker, parent …

Did you want to make a difference in other people’s lives?

I did! I did because I’d been cared by these amazing beings who I thought were angels (there were some who were meant to have moved on from this assignment) They made me laugh when I wanted to cry, they hugged me when I needed oxytocin and they held my hand when my people went home because they weren’t allowed to stay the night with me. I was 4 years old the first time and 8 years old the next time. I was having my broken heart mended

Not a day went by where I didn’t think I would be in the position to do what those angels did for me, for others.

I studied how to take a blood pressure, how to fold a fitted corner and learnt the hierarchy of needs.

However, I never studied how to care for myself or other Carers so that we could care for others. I never learnt how to put boundaries in place so that my gift of care and giving wasn’t taken advantage of. I gave away my power every single day because I had an imbedded belief that I wanted to make a difference to other people’s lives no matter the impact on my own.

AND then …. something shift . I went still and silent. I wanted my power back and right then and there I made the decision …. NO MORE

I’m here to help you carve out some time so that you too can take your power back.

Are you ready ?

From Miss 12, said she was feeling 5/10 and awkward when she arrived at the workshop and left feeling 9/10 and empowered


“I had the absolute privilege of attending Jacqui’s Empowered Cycles Masterclass and it was life changing! The wealth of information compiled and Jacqui’s passionate delivery allowed me to learn and embrace a whole new way of looking at my monthly cycle. As a result I feel much more informed and empowered and have found myself being much more compassionate to myself than I’ve ever been before. All women need this knowledge and Jacqui does a fantastic job of sharing it! Thank you x”


“Thank you, Nurse Jacqui, we thoroughly enjoyed the session yesterday and my princess and I are still beaming about it”


“Thank you for the snow globe, it was very good and highlighted how far I have come on making sure my daughter’s experience is “different” to mine.

I loved the positive period messages and the body positive meditation”

“Thank you so much my daughter and I both absolutely loved your workshop. Your gentle wise, loving and spiritually connected style had our full attention. I only wish I had received this brilliant education when I started my journey into womanhood. I highly recommend Nurse Jacqui, her care and commitment to empowering young girls is second to none.”


“Just wanted to say Thank you for Sunday. My young lady and I LOVED today – we are both feeling amazing and loving our wonderful earth suits!

And check out what she popped up on the fridge (cycle chart) You are amazing Nurse Jacqui! Much love and gratitude from us x…”


“Hello, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for last Monday (international Womens Day Nurse Jacqui Cycle Masterclass)

As someone who was put on the pill at a relatively young age to regulate my periods, I found some of the content confronting as it challenged so many of my beliefs about periods and being on the pill. But as I let the information sink in I realised how much it made sense and I started tracking my last two periods and looking at my moods. I feel like now I can predict when my inner critic is going to pop up and to not put pressure on myself during those times.

I hope we get to see each other at another Dreamers Duo event in the near future.

Aroha nui”


“Mōrena Jacqui. just wanted to say thank you for the course. it’s opened up a whole new way for my daughter and I to talk about periods. it’s a new understanding for me around seasons and my full time study(distance). I’ve reached out to my study community and there are a number of people who use the seasons to make study efficient and have offered support to me. last night I had a chat with my daughter about what im doing and how it might help her in the future. it’s been a moment of clarity for me, for which im truly grateful for your work and passion. Thank you”


I just wanted to say Jacqui’s workshop was really great.  Eva felt special having some time with just me.  I always mean to have 1 on 1 time with her but it never eventuates.  And we both learnt a lot.  I think it’s helped me better understand where we both are in our cycles and to be a bit more empathetic towards her behaviour.  The behaviour and attitude that would have normally driven me mad.  It was also lovely to spend some more time chatting with Anna and having some mum time too.  I totally recommend you do it with your girls and maybe team up so you can go for coffee when the girls have there craft time with Jacqui.

Oh by the way @Jacqui O’Connor I meant to say Eva is keen for us to do her special rite of passage moment over the next couple of days while they aren’t at school.  Watch this space (they had a pedicure and eye brow wax session together)
