After seeing as much of the world as possible, and my world view changed by volunteer projects in Thailand and Cambodia, I ventured into my next life stage as a mental health practitioner, then a family violence specialist and trainer. This work has given me the priviledge of working with incredible people from all walks of life, all of them wanting to heal, to be safe, to live their best life.
This work also took me on an unexpected journey of my own mental illness which gave me first hand experience of the daily struggle, the isolation, the fear that it will never get any better.
I shifted between psychologists, self care plans were created and then recreated, hope was lost, found and then lost again; I just couldn't find the help to find sustainable change.
Then I found TRTP - The Richards Trauma Process, and it changed everything. I experienced such incredible change that I decided to become a practitioner myself, and I can't wait to welcome you on this amazing journey with me.
My sound healing path started in early childhood, moving from piano to violin and eventually becoming a singer-songwriter at 15, and fell in love with performing my own songs with my guitar. I spent years performing around Melbourne and London in my early adulthood, honing my skills and sharing music with amazing people.
Fast forward to a few years ago, when I turned to energy healing and sound baths to help with my mental health, I formed a new relationship with music as it healed my soul. As a qualified Reiki practitioner, I now combine energy healing with shamanic practice and sound medicine, and when I'm leading a Sound Medicine Hike, I love to share my passion for forest bathing and connecting with nature.
