Hi, a warm welcome to my profile. If you are on a path to wellness, then you are in the right place. I am a trauma therapist, physiotherapist, rehabilitation counsellor and chronic pain therapist who is Medicare, private health fund and SIRA approved. I work both with trauma (anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD), and with chronic pain. You could say my expertise is in getting the nervous system to relax to allow healing to occur using various top down and bottom up relaxation techniques. Often, but not always, trauma and chronic pain are interrelated, in which case I always address the trauma first. Managing clients with anxiety, pain and suffering for 40 years in my rehabilitation work, along with my own personal experience of trauma in my teenage years, I have loads of experience, training, and practical life wisdom to offer. I always come from a position of curiosity and compassion, seeking first to understand, then educate and empower, then provide the therapy required. Given the right conditions, I believe in the power of the body to heal itself; I just direct that process. I do virtual and face to face sessions and I love my work.
