Hello, I’m Christine

Certified TRE® Provider

Embodied Healing Practitioner

Originally from Australia with German and Japanese heritage, I have lived in the UK, Germany, Czechia, Indonesia, Iceland and home is now New Zealand.

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Sydney and I trained in various stress and trauma healing techniques after I experienced a burnout that forced me to go beyond what the clinical world had to offer, in order to find effective and lasting help and healing in my life.

I know what it’s like to feel like no matter how much outer success you have, how hard you work or achieve in life, happiness just always seems to be out of reach. I used to live as though my body was a burden rather than a joy. I was totally oblivious to the impact that certain life challenges, set backs and traumas had left on my body and nervous system.

Eventually my body won, I was forced to stop and listen to it, learn about it, trust it — and ultimately to love it.

The body has a huge influence on the state of our mental health and is far more effective than talk-only therapies. I love being able to help others learn about, and re-connect with, their bodies, and ultimately to heal and find happiness.

I don’t believe we are ever broken, but that healing is a process of unfolding. As we release that which no longer serves us, we are able to blossom.
