As teacher I became interested in helping children overcome barriers to learning that arise, not from a medical condition, but from internal stressors that disrupt the ability to be receptive to learning. Brain Gym® and Kinesiology work well together to effectively improve the physical skills required for learning.

Educational Kinesiology (Brain Gym®)
(Edu-K) is a comprehensive mind/body integration programme that uses specific movement to enhance our abilities and confidence – in learning, sport, performing arts, communication, or whatever our challenges may be. It incorporates the movement activities known and taught as Brain Gym®, and works for children, or adults. Edu-K processes enable us to improve our neurological organisation and flexibility, making it possible to release old beliefs and inhibiting or compensatory patterns of movement and behaviour. When mind and body work together in harmony, the result is wholeness, full self-expression, creativity, responsible choice making and easy movement into new challenges. Edu-K gives us the tools to become our best.

Working with children
When working with children I assess for and work with those with:
• Developmental delays such as retained primitive reflexes
• Learning challenges such as writing, reading and maths
• Physical challenges such as coordination and balance
• Social and emotional challenges
When working with children a parent or guardian should be present and sessions are an hour. All sessions result in home support activities designed to support the work done or identified during the session.
Sessions are $65 and are an hour long. During the first session each child is taken through a skills assessment screening. Following the first session, a minimum of 3 sessions is recommended. Pay for 3 sessions up front and get one free. All session are to be used within 4 months of the original session.
Working with adults
When working with adults I work with individuals in the areas of personal growth, relationship or goal setting issues.
I also work with those who have experienced mental trauma or dealing with physical stress due to brain injury or stroke, anxiety, mobility and pain.
Sessions are between 1.5hrs and 2 hrs an cost between $95-$130.
