Combining emotional support with physical and spiritual
aspects of care via Assisted Self-inquiry.

to find answers at your own pace by turning toward
the inner wisdom of your body, where many answers already lie.
Companioning you with gentleness to release emotional, physical, and
spiritual burdens. Supporting as you discover *new ways of being,
through somatic awareness, therapeutic touch and creative practices.
Honouring your unique worldview, faith, philosophy, and life
experiences. Understanding that we all genuinely long
to heal and live with peace.
You ARE, Welcome.
Companion, Guide & Facilitator
Natalie's work has developed from a genuine interest and curiosity in all people and a belief that the therapeutic process can bring transformation for more significant whole-hearted life experiences.
The essence of her care is committed to creating a safe space where you feel supported to make discoveries about yourself and your needs while finding keen understanding, 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 current life difficulty. You've been through a significant life change or illness, experienced grief, loss of community, and 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 already and want to grow more capacity, 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 more balanced as you know how to express yourself and release anxiety or apprehension.
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 want someone who understands religious faith and spiritual themes to help you see what you can't, to have confidence in you when you've lost yours, and support you when you don't know how to carry long-held beliefs anymore.
You desire personal change and want to explore *new ways of being and understanding your body's responses to stress.
You'd like to be more secure and quiet your inner critic.
You're ready to get back on track in life and become confident, calming your inner and outer world; and
You're ready to do the sensitive work of fully understanding all the parts of yourself, your life expression, spirituality, and how your experiences have shaped ALL of you.
What you're looking for
A Trauma-informed holistic 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, manage your posture, perceptions and energy better: and seek a deeper understanding of yourself, others, your environment and the Divine rather than quick fixes or substitutes.
You want to learn how 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 the 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."
Working from a home-based studio,
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 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...
I learnt to recognise my full humanity as a connected & living system, increasing my capacity for being at home
in my body.
Balancing and strengthening my resilient spirit,
I listened to my story through a unique sensory experience.
I discovered the power of _this present moment_, cultivating an experimental & curious attitude in which to explore.
Co-regulating through shared relationships and finding
nourishment in nature and my creative impulse.
I trusted the connection between my posture and beliefs, attitudes and character.
Interrupting habitual patterns, sustaining new neural pathways and uncovering my innate inner ease.
I remembered to embrace all the parts of me with compassion. Deepening the expression of my own Self &
my unique spirituality as "embodied belief".
And now, I am cultivating my life with liberty,
authenticity, meaning and peace.
Reconnect with your whole self, nourish your nervous system, and ground yourself in the present moment.
