It’s time to re-claim and include the parts of us we have left behind.  At source, we ARE love and pleasure.. both of which we can mindfully and intentionally recruit as allies in our own healing and transformation.  Research continues to provide us with robust evidence that mindful embodiment is key to whole body health.

I am a midwife, bodyworker and birth & sexuality educator.  I support people through life transitions, and facilitate embodied, trauma informed explorations in sexuality, relating and trauma resolution.  I am a member of the Somatic Sex Educators Association of Australiasia (SSEAA) 

1:1 sessions, online and in person, pre and post natal  parenting groups and online education.  Focusing on embodied consent education for relating, sexuality, birth preparation and debriefing.  Specialising in scar tissue remediation (STREAM),  bringing health back to scar tissue and the whole body.  Facilitator of Thrive! mothers groups, and Whole Body Birthing birth preparation.  Based in Essendon, Melbourne and online.
