Over the past ten years, I’ve been dedicated to creating work and spaces that allow people to feel a greater sense of comfort and ease inside the edges of their skin.
My work encompasses a variety of different modalities, simultaneously rooted in science whilst honouring the mystery and magic of what it means to be messily imperfect human.
My approach is founded on understandings of the mind and emotional brain, movement education, and biomechanics in conjunction with nervous system awareness.
I’ve had my fair share of challenges in the past. Anxiety used to be a default channel for me. So much so that I thought it was a part of my personality rather than a communication from my body that something was out of whack.
Given that propensity, looking back, I’ve had what some may describe as an adventurous life. I grew up with horses and competed successfully all around Australia right through my teens.
I lived and travelled abroad for the duration of my 20’s
working as an emergency aid relief worker in some pretty remote regions of the world.
And for the many bumps along the way, horses have always been my touchstone.
What I know to be true now is that horses are my life practice. They have gifted me with insight and self-reflection. They have prompted to me to learn more about myself and how I operate in the world so that I can own my own voice, rest more easily inside the edges of my skin and show up for what’s important to me in bigger and better ways.
Over the past ten years, this journey has led me to not only better understand myself but to help others do the same. My work is an offering of skills and understandings that I myself have found comfort, understanding, and solace in. They are evidence-based, trauma-informed, and allow you to navigate any challenges you are facing with dignity and integrity.
So if you’re reading this and wondering if it’s all for you, I get it. Stepping in to exploring this stuff can feel like a really big deal. And in doing so, it’s important that you know that I’ll show up for you and bring everything I have to our time together. You’ll be met with compassion, kindness and some slightly dry humour (it’s part of the deal I’m afraid) where every part of us is free to have a place at the table.
I get to tie all the threads together- the mental and emotional skills we need- and present them in a way that allows you to develop a wholehearted and fulfilling relationship with your horse, no matter what you want to do together.
