After my journey of adversity, grief, loss & marginalisation, I uncovered the brain & nervous system's response to stress and distress. Through my experience of how 'repeatedly talking 'about' an issue (or challenge) didn't serve me, I specialised in non-verbal body-based modalities. I am an expert in invoking creative expression and building strength and resourcing through imagination and somatic practices.
