I have been honoured to work internationally in a range of capacities supporting survivors of trauma and those providing care and assistance to them
With heartfelt thanks to my clients and partners.
TCTSY with children living with disabilities
Working alongside children's physiotherapy program, I had the privilege of running TCTSY programs with children from 8 to 11 years living with a range of physical and developmental disabilities.
Together we explored feeling whole, we experimented with using our bodies in different ways, connecting with our breath and supporting one another.
In collaboration with TIAFI, Izmir, Turkey
Peaceful Embodiment for Women
Movement programs for women living with the impacts of trauma in Izmir, Turkey and Lesvos, Greece.
These programs supported women who were experiencing trauma symptoms, anxiety, grief and loss, psychosomatic symptoms and depression. We worked together to connect with the sensations in our bodies and explore using our body as a resource.

Short term psychosocial program for children with a focus on social and emotional learning.
These programs were integrated into existing informal educational settings with refugee children in Turkey and Greece.
We worked with body-based practices to explore impulse control, affect regulation and connection and belonging.
