Trauma Informed Workshops for the Workplace

For many of us, a great deal of our life is spent in the work place or traveling to of from. During these times we may experience life changing events due to witnessing or being the object of a traumatic incident. Maybe you work in an environment where you are exposed to trauma as part of your profession. Does your workplace have the knowledge to provide Trauma Informed Care for you or other work colleagues?


  • Working in intimate spaces with the public , like those in the beauty and tattoo industries, educators, health care and disability industries. Staff may be exposed to stories of trauma and clients may possibly over share, unknowingly off loading their stress onto staff. This may affect staff members personal mental/physical health.
  • Target Focused Industries often require high bursts of adrenaline. This may be the case in industries such as hospitality, health care and emergency service work. These are also Industries in which workers may experience burn out. 
  • Carer Fatigue can occur when we don't take the time to process the information that we see, hear and experience as we care for others. We may take on the angst that belongs to a patient , client or student and hold onto it, allowing it to eat into our psyche. 
  • Personal Memorials/Rituals. Rituals are held to celebrate or honour important event, and are vital for the human psyche in event of death or other life changing events that may be affecting an individual, community, team or work space. While creating safety, repect and confedentiality as a priority, I will  facillitate groups for non-religious rituals, co- designed with you to meet your needs and honour the individual or occasion.  
  • I am niether a celebrant nor Justice of the Peace.
Early Childhood Education
I have 14 years previous experience as an early childhood educator and can offer comprehensive but entertaining professional development in areas such as attachment theory, relationships, mindfulness and positive communication with children, parents and staff members.

Business owners

I have wide and varied hands on experience in the business world. I have experienced the fast and competitive elements of being a business owner and manager.I understand the complexities  and the complications of balancing work, family and the joys of life.
Forums and Workshops
Often the material offered in forums and workshops can be very draining on the participants especially if the material is of heavy contextual substance. Engaging in some right brain activity can give the left brain the opportunity to absorb challenging material.
