Companion, Guide & Facilitator
Natalie's work has developed from a genuine interest and curiosity in all people and a belief that the healing process brings transformation for a more significant whole-hearted life.
The essence of her care is committed to creating a safe space where you feel supported to make discoveries while encountering sensitive understanding, emotional resourcing, and tools to overcome life's difficulties.
Reconnect with your whole self, nourish your nervous system,
and ground yourself in the present moment.
If this sounds like you, you've found the right place.
You're looking for someone to support you through a life difficulty, or have been through a significant life change or illness, experienced grief, loss of community, or maybe burnout or faith deconstruction, and am now looking for sensitive care that's more than just talk-based therapy.
Or perhaps you have a sound footing in life but desire to grow more capacity for pleasure, understand your barriers and develop more healthy relationships, particularly with yourself and your body.
You want to learn how your body holds and responds to stress, becoming balanced as you express yourself more fully, releasing anxiety or apprehensionn.
You are a primary carer or work in a caregiving role. You desire more 'space' to develop effective and meaningful self-care that promotes your well-being and resilience as you care for others—longevity, not intensity.
You're looking for someone who understands religious faith and spiritual themes, who can help you see what you can no longer, to have confidence in you when you've lost yours, and to support you when you don't know how to hold long-held beliefs anymore.
You desire personal change and want to understand your body's response to stress and are willing to explore
*new ways of being.
You'd like to be more secure in yourself and quiet your inner critic.
You're ready to get back on track in life, find your ease in everyday living; and
You're prepared to do the sensitive work of fully understanding all the parts of yourself, your life expression, spirituality, and just how your experiences have shaped ALL of you.
What you're looking for
A Trauma-informed, body-mind therapist you can relate to and find an empathetic connection with; who understands grief & loss and speaks your language.
A safe space where you can explore your experience, needs, values, thoughts & beliefs.
Discover new ways to respond to stress, move forward, discover meaning, and manage your posture, perceptions and energy.
Seek a deeper understanding of yourself, others, your environment and the Divine rather than quick fixes or substitutes, learning to live in your body with greater ease, hope & joy.
"Working in the present moment, I support you to develop a curious, compassionate, and embodied listening presence. This spacious presence allows the psycho-biological impact of early developmental & relational trauma, grief and significant life changes to be witnessed, felt, and calibrated.
As we experience this within a safe therapeutic relationship, our most authentic and essential selves unfold, transforming our present-day relationships with ourselves, each other, and our world
(And our God). We discover our innate sense of ease, widening our capacity for change and discovering a solid & grounded posture that promotes an authentic expression of creativity, compassion and hope."
Located fifteen minutes south of Perth near
Cockburn Central, Natalie respectfully acknowledges the original owners of the land she lives and works on,
the Nyungar people of Beeliar Boodja. Who long ago, now and in the future care for country, with a continuing connection to land, waters and culture and Nat pays her respects to the Elders, past, present, and emerging.
Natalie also shares her home-based studio space with domestic pets, so you may hear them announcing your arrival, but they are not allowed in work areas
(Unless you need a little puppy therapy!).
*New Ways of Being
Recognising my human being as a connected & living system,
I increased my capacity to live at home in my body.
Balancing and strengthening my resilient spirit, listening
to my body's story through a unique sensory experience.
Discovering the power of this present moment, I cultivated
an experimental & curious attitude in which to explore all my parts and release the noise living in me.
Co-regulating through shared relationships, found nourishment in nature and unfurled my creative impulse. Trusting the connection between my posture and beliefs, attitudes, and character.
Interrupting habitual patterns, sustaining new neural paths, and uncovering a state of ease, I embraced my whole Self with compassion. Deepening my unique spirituality as "embodied belief".
And today and every day forward, I live with authenticity, meaning and peace, embracing every affinity with presence, perspective,
Reconnect with your whole self, nourish your nervous system, and ground yourself in the present moment.
