About / Bio
Creative arts and conscious dance have enhanced my life, helped me through some challenging times and deepened my experience of life. I have danced my way through loss, despair and inertia. I have used art to shine a light on the shadows within.

I believe that you don’t have to be an artist or dancer to express something that is almost impossible (and often painful) to put into words, you just have to have a go. I have my many years of experience working therapeutically with people and a huge range of resources available to draw upon. More recently I have trained in Open Floor movement practice and offer Therapy in Motion to people who want to blend and integrate a body (bottom up) approach with a mind (top down) approach, using the wisdom of their own physical experience in the therapeutic encounter.

I have built an eclectic mix of skills and incorporate the creative into whatever work I do. I have extensive experience working with sexual abuse, trauma, anxiety, and self harm, with families, adolescents, children and groups. I am a registered ACC provider.

I have a private practice at my own studio in Lyttelton. I facilitate dance classes and workshops in Open Floor movement practice. I run art and dance workshops in Christchurch exploring common themes of being alive and embracing your humanity.

I offer individual sessions; group work; and supervision for counsellors.
