Need a safe space to talk?
Approximately 50% of all my current clients are LGBTQI+, and working with the my community is a passion and a privilege for me.
I am proud to be supporting members of our community through their own process of acknowledgment, self-acceptance and building resilience.
Through my own experiences, training, and working with clients, I have the empathy and understanding required to work with the LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, etc) community on what can be quite intimate and delicate matters, with total confidentiality.
How can Breathwork help?
Self Discovery & Building Resilience
Through Breathwork, I learned about what thoughts and patterns held me back from accepting myself, and where I 'fitted in'. As I began to understood these thoughts, patterns & behaviours I learned how to build stronger relationships - not only with others, but more importantly, with myself. I also learned which relationships to step back or distance myself from.
Learning about our self is not only about our gender/sexual identity. It is also about us as an individual person. Being a part of the LGBTQI+ community does not exclude us from dealing with many of the same struggles as non-LGBTQI+ people. Everyone can have relationship problems, issues around self-worth, loneliness, anxiety/depression, sadness/grief, money, sexual problems, etc.
Whilst most of the solutions are the same, there are additional nuances that are specific to our community, and also to specific parts of our community.
The more we learn and understand about ourselves and others, the more resilient we become to be able to move through and beyond any struggle, hurt and difficult situation. We can learn to be less triggered, and to cope with greater strength and confidence.
Path to Acknowledgment and Acceptance
Acceptance and belonging are core human needs - no matter who or what we are.
Breathwork starts with our Self. We may logically acknowledge who we are in our minds, however, we often find resistance in the heart, usually in the form of fear.
As Breathwork is an active inward journey, access to our true thoughts and feelings are more easily reached, seen and acknowledged. Once we can acknowledge these, then we can make the changes required towards full acceptance of our Self, then look beyond.
Breathwork Therapy has helped me got to where I am at, and can help you to get to where and who you are meant to be.

Abuse – physical, sexual, emotional
Difficult relationships - partner/family/work
Difficulty seeking relationships
Addictions – including pornography & sex
Coming Out / fallout of Coming Out

Family separation and dis-ownership
Workshops for LGBTQI+ & their allies
Commencing in early 2022, I will be conducting workshops exclusively for the LGBTQI+ community and their allies.
Whilst the topics are not exclusively LGBTQI+ topics, I understand that some stories around these topics may not be comfortable telling in a wider public forum, so I am creating a safe space for you to explore and learn
