Background

I am currently working part time, 25 hours a week, in my 7th year with the Victorian Education Department, assisting and supporting children with a wide variety of educational, emotional and development needs, including: ASD, APD, OCD and auditory and environmental hypersensitivities. I use Brain Gym® exercises and balances daily with the children. I came across Brain Gym® whilst working in pre-schools and immediately saw how simple and effective these exercises really are. I finished my training in Brain Gym® in 2011. I now run a private practice using Brain Gym® in conjunction with other modalities. The results I see never cease to amaze me.  

Twelve years ago I finished my early childhood teacher training in the Rudolph Steiner philosophy and now blend my knowledge and experience in this area with my current work with the children.
