Speciality: Anxiety, Self Esteem and Women's Issues

Please describe yourself in 20 words or less.

I am a mother passionate about all things motherhood. Inspiring myself every day to inspire those around me.

What is a hobby you love to do in your spare time?

Techno yoga. Techno Yoga is a very free form of yoga done to techno music. This approach is very different to the competitive, mechanical and gymnastic yoga forms commonly taught.

Why did you choose this career path?

I was always a good lister, extremely empathetic so people always came to me to talk. I have an interest in human behaviour, even though we have different experiences - we have similar outcomes. All we want is to be heard, understood and felt included.

Tell me about one experience which has kept you doing what you’re doing.

It happens every time I sit down with a client, the sadness and fear at the beginning of the session then lead to hope and optimism at the end of the session. Makes me happy to see people evolve into the versions of themselves they have always desired.

What is one piece of general advice that you would give to a client starting out their mental health journey?

Be authentic to yourself, don't try to be something that you are not. When you find the right person, you will grow in ways you did not know were possible.

What career would you have pursued if you weren’t doing what you were doing?

After a long life of trying new careers such as accounting, flight attendant, hospitality, circus work, flying a plane, travelling all around the world and living in different places in Australia - this is exactly where I want to be.

What is one item in your fridge that would surprise us?

Vodka - nice and chill, just like me!

Is there anything about you that you would like clients who are reading to know?

Things can always get better. You may not have had a choice over the things that have happened to you in your life - but you can decide if they define you, or motivate you.
