Do you or your child need a little guidance and support to understand and accept yourself or your differing way of thinking?
Do you often feel overwhelmed by life, sensory stuff or anxiety?
Do you or your child need some new social skills to help you connect with, understand and communicate better with others?
Would you like support to learn practical daily living skills and work towards independence?
Is it difficult to slow your thoughts down and focus, or to even eat, sleep or relax regularly?
Do you or your child need some strategies to support learning, listening, focusing or autism advocacy/inclusion support for school?
Is it a struggle to get or stay organised or motivated?
Are you stuck at the Procrastination Station and would like to move on?
Do you feel you need help to understand, connect with and care for yourself?
Would you like support to make some positive life changes but don't know where to start?
Whatever the reason, I look forward to walking alongside you on your journey of discovery and awareness, self-acceptance, empowerment and personal growth. My goal is to guide and support you to reach yours.
I am more than happy to collaborate with your other chosen therapists and do ensure regular reviews and feedback. I encourage
family/home participation and support networks to maximise all outcomes.
Where do we start?
1. Initial functional screening consultation
To find out more information and discuss your/your child's needs, goals, aspirations, likes, dislikes, strengths,
challenges and support networks. We then make and sign a Service Agreement (with relevant, achievable goals) and
a regular time/day/duration and fees for your sessions. I will then make up a Therapy Plan with relevant activity
programs, strategies and supports to help you reach your NDIS Plan goals.
2. Coaching sessions
Your / your child's coaching sessions may be at my clinic in Kewarra Beach, at your home, in the community or online. Where ever we get the best results.
Let's build your personalised therapy plan!
Improving basic nutrition, hydration, sleep, exercise, relaxation and daily routines
(People, sometimes even doctors, have asked me why this is where I start. I explain it from a personal and professional perspective. It makes complete sense to me, as someone who has qualifications, 23 years of clinical practice in nutritional and lifestyle strategies as well as personal and professional experience of ASD/ADD/ADHD/anxiety.
I understand the challenges we come across, how to stop, review what's going on and get back on track. We are all a work in progress and the sooner we put the pieces in place regularly, the better we feel. Don't worry, I know this scares lots of people, especially if they have no routine, arent hungry, like to sleep all day or only eat toast. I get it. You won't be pushed to do anything you don't want to do, but I would like to help you reach your personal sweet spot.
