I respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin nation. I pay respect to elders past, present and emerging and to the profound wisdom and beauty of the land that holds, sustains and homes us.
As a therapist and facilitator, my intention is to meet you exactly as you are in a safe, supportive, trauma informed, impartial space and to share resources and techniques to enable you to connect with yourself, your body, your health and to balance within and without. Welcome home.
My values as a therapist and facilitator are mutual respect and non judgement. In our sessions there is no imposition, we work together establishing your concerns and intentions and meeting you exactly as you are. A variety of techniques and practices are tailored to you providing a supportive hand with wisdom and experience to meet, resource and facilitate reorganisation of any concerns you are encountering. The modalities I offer, I continue to explore in my personal journey and have found them invaluable in navigating life and challenges from traumatic events, grief and loss, pain and injury to a deep felt sense of understanding of myself.
