I am a senior yoga, meditation and certified Trauma Sensitive Yoga facilitator (TCTSY-F). I works as a trauma informed embodiment practitioner, educator and coach. Through my own experiences with trauma, adversity and the subsequent process of healing and integration, I am committed to a practice that focuses on creating safe spaces for people to reclaim their bodies, innate wisdom and power. My areas of expertise include mental health, trauma recovery and psychedelic and plant medicine integration.
My work has included facilitating roles within the prison system, youth homelessness, foster care and not-for-profit sectors, as well as universities and corporate environments. I regularly run retreats, trainings and educational workshops on trauma informed approaches to support the wider community and professional development.
I offer a 10-week person-centred program that is based on a multi-dimensional approach and the creation of mutually respectful and supportive relationships. My mission is to meet people where they are at, moment to moment, through engaging compassionate inquiry, somatic/embodied processes and the spaces between. The program welcomes individuals and groups.
Most recently, I developed a trauma informed program in collaboration with Victoria University. As the co-author and facilitator, I guided 300 students through the mindfulness program centered around mental health, wellbeing and trauma informed yoga over the course of 10 weeks.
