Anxiety Specialist, Body Psychotherapist, Counsellor & Dance Movement Therapist based in North Brisbane.

If you have anxiety, then you can probably relate to feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by life. Anxiety really sucks all the life out of you, until you feel like a shell of your former self. Suddenly, everything feels too hard, your resilience seems to crumble, your perfectionism kicks into overdrive and your work, relationships and sense of self get affected.

I get it. I am passionate about helping my clients because I know what it is like to go through anxiety and crises. As a university educated body psychotherapist and counsellor I have now helped hundreds of people to discover the power of working with the body – not just talking about the problem. BUPA, Police Health, Emergency Services Health and Medibank Private rebates available. Learn more about whether you’re eligible here.

Sessions are available in person (in my studio in Kelvin Grove), via secure video counselling over Skype/Zoom or via phone.

Why does body psychotherapy help?

Most psychologists just do talk therapy. I’m a body-oriented therapist, which means I combine talk therapy with movement and breathing. Talking about an issue taps into the newest parts of our brains “the prefrontal lobe”. But when you get really overwhelmed and anxious that part of the brain can shut down. Especially if you go through trauma.

It is the other two-thirds of the brain that can actually shift things for us. We have the emotional part of our brain “the limbic system” and the survival part of our brain “the brain stem”, which both play a HUGE role in where our anxiety is stored and how to release it.

Movement and music help us to tap into the emotional parts of our brains – where we connect with memories and feelings, helping us unlock what is buried. Breathing helps us connect with the survival part of our brains where we can affect the nervous system and help ourselves calm down and not get overwhelmed.

My story

I get it. I am passionate about helping my clients because I know what it is like to go through what anxiety and crises.

Over 15 years ago now, I experienced a crisis of my own, stuck in a job that drained my soul and caused chronic stress which led to anxiety, depression and burnout. Like many people, I was at a cross-roads in life — torn between what makes sense logically and how terrible I felt in my body and mind. I was completely lost and overwhelmed.

I ended up spending over a year stuck somewhere I didn’t belong and I now know I never want to let anyone else suffer alone the way I did. I discovered Body Psychotherapy and my life changed so much that I felt passionate about studying my Master of Mental Health (Psychotherapy) and many subsequent qualifications in the field. After spending years chasing a career that I thought I ‘ought’ to do to be successful in life but felt disconnected from, I finally found my calling.
