Hi, I’ve been involved in the healing field for over 20 years, helping people become more aware of the mind-body-spirit connection and to live a more authentic life. People come to art therapy at a time when they’re looking to heal, and to find meaning and depth in their lives. The process of art making is known to alter brain wave patterns enabling us to move from stress to relaxation, dis-ease to well-being and confusion to clarity. It uses creative and sensory interventions to process experiences, creating new neural pathways to facilitate developmental, behavioral and cognitive changes.

I offer experiential counselling methods to all age groups and life stages with particular specialty in working with children and helping people process trauma.

Modalities : Art Psychotherapy, Counselling, Work at the Clay Field
Focus Areas : Trauma Recovery, Developmental Delays, Mental Health, Addiction Recovery, Grief/Loss/Bereavement, Family Violence, Personal Development, Clinical & Peer Supervision, Corporate & Business Team/Vision Building, Cancer Support, Palliative Care, Chronic Illness & Pain Management

Clinic : Mind Body Birthing
Location : 8 Hakea Court, Mt Helen 3350

Many women have fear and anxiety related to childbirth. This fear can stimulate the release of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, which can result in a racing heart, increased tension and tight muscles. This often results in a more painful and longer labour, and may increase the likelihood of intervention, e.g. forceps or Caesarean birth.  

Mind Body Birthing teaches women and their birth partners techniques such as breathing, relaxation, visualisation and self-hypnosis to instead induce relaxation/love hormones (such as oxytocin) and endorphins (morphine-like hormones). These hormones are important in the birth process and can alter our perception of pain. These techniques, combined with good knowledge and support, empower couples to have a more calm and positive birth experience.

Modalities : Hypnobirthing, Childbirth, Pregnancy
Focus Areas : Childbirth, Pregnancy, Hypnobirthing, Calm Birth, Positive Birthing, Empowering Pregnant Women, Childbirth Education, Relaxation, Pregnancy Support, Self-Hypnosis, Visualisation
