About Me

Cathy

I am a Community Development worker who specialises in movement and expressive therapy.

I have been drawn to music, dance and drawing since childhood. They are my forms of meditation and solace, my self-love and care. It was in 2012 when I discovered movement as a form of ‘therapy’. Movement and expressive therapy opened up an entirely new way of working through life’s challenges and emotions in a profoundly creative and self-reflective way. I find great comfort that this form of therapy can be done at my own pace, based on my own intuition and inner wisdom.

Since 2008 I have worked with a number of community groups both internationally and within Australia, gaining sound experience planning, coordinating and facilitating various grass-root projects, mentoring youth programs and adventure therapy camps.

My passionate, empathic and fun-loving personality creates easeful relations with individuals of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy getting to know everyone’s story: believing in the possibilities achieved by strong community and actions fueled by love.

Having found my medicine, I now wish to share this practice with others. My workshops provide opportunities for discovery and emotional integration, inviting participants to explore a range of expressive modalities such as: somatic body awareness, intuitive movement, breath work, visualisation and symbol work, expressive writing and drawing as well as vocal release.
