About Heart - Somatic Psychotherapy
Mobile 0412 210 339
I work in partnership with you to deeply understand your unique experiences and discover habitual patterns ('seen' or 'unseen') that may be holding you back. Through respectful exploration I can help you find more fulfilling ways of being. Through this process of transformation, you will discover a greater freedom of being more authentic with self and others. I have a special interest in the impact of chronic trauma and stress on the mind-body.

Buddhist Psychotherapy, Existential, Meditation, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, Self Psychology, Somatic Psychotherapy, Systems Theory
As a somatic psychotherapist, I believe the body (soma in Greek) and its sensations are an integral part of my work. Using mindfulness and self-psychology, I apply the latest developments in neurobiology, trauma, development & attachment theory to
- Help develop self awareness at a mind/body level
- Deepen relations with your self & others
- Increase your sense of freedom & creativity
- Help you let go of your emotionally and mentally limiting patterns
- Help you connect with your authentic self
As an associate member of the Australian Somatic Psychotherapy Association and provisional member of PACFA, I continue to undertake professional development training, including regular clinical supervision of my work and my own psychotherapy to help me to continue to grow personally. I practice in accordance with the stringent ethical guidelines of the ASPA and PACFA associations.
I worked in the corporate world for 15 years, seemingly having a good life until chronic illness struck. This led me on a path of self exploration and a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma and stress on the mind-body.
I discovered the benefits of Somatic Psychotherapy, mindfulness meditation and AcuEnergetics first hand. As I remembered to listen to my body's sensations & accepted disowned parts of my self, my way of being in the world changed. I am passionate about sharing this learning.

Psychotherapist, Somatic Psychotherapist
I am a registered somatic psychotherapist, trained in self psychology, trauma, neurobiology and attachment theory.
I am passionate about helping you to resolve the impact of trauma on the mind-body. Early life experiences greatly influence how we experience life today. Therapy gradually helps unshackle us from the past, so we are free to respond rather than re-act to life events and loved ones.
I look forward to welcoming you, irrespective of your history, sexuality or cultural background....
