My study early was as a Scientist and completed my honours researching animal behaviour. I have utilised this in my other current work with animals providing training and behaviour for pets. I continued on to complete course work to be accredited as a dog training instructor but went on to study through numerous workshops and lectures. At the same time I delved into further study working with animals in other avenues, providing benefits with body work, movement, emotional and nutritional advise (massage, bowen therapy, TTouch etc). Some of this study involved human therapies that I have adapted to use with animals.
The further I have studied therapies for humans the more I have become interested in treating various issues. The course work has involved kinesiology (not currently being used), bowen therapy (NST – Neurostructural Integration Technique), DORN method and Craniosacral therapy. I have completed a Diploma in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) through an international training organisation, Body Intelligence Trainings. I consider BCST to be at the forefront of healing therapies. It is from this work that I have expanded to treating people and seeing some amazing results.
My passions is to help people improve their health and wellbeing as a whole but more specifically working with chronic physical pain and dysfunction that has not been dealt with through other means as well as acute and chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma. It is these issues that I have dealt with in my own life and found relief in many different modalities, but have found BCST to have made the most profound long term change.
I am an accredited member of the Pacific Association of Craniosacral Therapists and the International Institute of Complementary Therapists.
