As a Registered Psychologist, Meditation Teacher, and now Mama Rising Facilitator, I am a passionate advocate for working with people to empower them to understand themselves on the deepest level to help foster and nurture their growth.
I believe that more than ever, we are in need of tools and practices to recognise what we stand for and why we feel a certain way, and to explore and unpack our core beliefs that may be impacting our ability to thrive. When we are feeling stressed and anxious, we can be a volcano of emotions, and we can find it hard to navigate through the problems and challenges we face.
We can find ourselves feeling exhausted, debilitated, our resilience is lowered and burnout can result – I too have been there. I know the struggle and place great importance on understanding and recognising emotions and thought patterns for active healing.
I have been a practising Psychologist for 8 years and have recently embarked on my own private practice in Torquay, Victoria. I employ a holistic approach in my clinic, engaging clients with various psychological therapies, including Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), and mindfulness-based approaches.
I completed my Meditation Teacher Training in 2015, and I maintain ongoing study in new and evolving psychological and wellness techniques.
After the birth of my second baby and the challenges I faced in becoming a mother to two children, I embarked upon a transformational journey to learn about Matresence (the transition to motherhood) and the profound impact it can have on a woman. The Mama Rising training is the most empowering and transformational training program I have ever embarked on and offers women and mothers a formula of support to revolutionise the way they are seen and valued.
The training provided me with a toolkit of ancient wisdom, personal experiences, somatic body exercises, and allowed me to unpack my own experiences of becoming a mother; one that I can now share with clients and hold the space for deeper exploration and integration.
I enjoy soaking up the energy of the ocean and nature, cooking healthy meals, reading romantic novels, and hanging out with my friends, family, and fur baby Coco.
In my spare time, you will find me tapping into the wisdom and knowledge from different thought leaders in the fields of wellness, self-compassion, holistic psychology, meditation, and mindfulness – all to improve upon my own knowledge, but also to share and empower my clients with. I love to travel, but often a good Netflix series, a book and some ‘alone’ time on the couch is what I need the most.
