The people who come to see me are vast and varied; people from high stress, long hours and demanding occupations to people who require regular maintenance or the chance to relax and unwind. I have experience with endurance athletes and folks who love to be in the outdoors as well as creating an oasis to escape to and de-stress.
I’m a very social person who has always had an interest in people and the way the human body and mind responds to different life events and stresses. I’m also an outdoors girl at heart and enjoy sea kayaking, hiking, rock climbing and camping, any excuse to be outside and amongst good company and nature. I’m also quite partial to an afternoon session on the couch with a good book or movie!
I have always been interested in sports and activities that were deemed a little bit different, which lead to my previous career in Outdoor Education. I have facilitated and coordinated teams of both adolescence and adults on short and extended outdoor adventure trips in Australia, New Zealand as well as internationally. I am Wilderness First Responder trained and have seen my fair share of ailments from trauma, medical and emotional causes and after suffering a long period of recovery for a simple ailment myself, I felt that there has to be a better alternative for me and others like me. I moved into my career as a Massage therapist where I can now help my clients return to what they enjoy doing, faster!

I believe that the road to recovery is different for every individual.
Focus is able to provide a range of quality practitioners who want to see their clients happy and healthy and they use a holistic approach to get there. I love the fact that a clients’ recovery plan can be tailored to their needs and concerns for the best results.
