Health and Wellbeing for Organisations and Groups

  • Customised workshops to suit your group/organisational needs, focusing on stress management, health and wellbeing, meditation and mindfulness, and personal transformation
  • Programs and workshops tailored particularly for those working in the areas of human services, to capitalise on the close link between practitioner health and wellbeing, and the delivery of excellent care

The Healer's Journey
The Healer's Journey is a professional development opportunity which harnesses the personal realities of life and offers a unique perspective on understanding inter-professional and organisational dynamics and relationships.

Having completed my Masters degree in education at La Trobe University with a thesis on the archetype of the wounded-healer, I developed The Healer's Journey to assist those in the caring and helping professions to access the wisdom and guidance contained in the archetype or universal pattern of the wounded-healer.

The Healer's Journey helps you to expand your personal and professional horizons, allowing you to revitalise yourself and your practice, and explore new directions in your career.

The Healer's Journey can help shed light on intra and inter professional dynamics providing fresh perspectives, and a platform for co-operation and renewed relationships.

While the program can be tailored to the needs of specific groups and organisations, a typical workshop might include:
  • An overview of the journey to healing
    • How we can transform our own life in the service of others
  • Connecting to our call to healing
    • What brought us to this area, how that informs and enlivens current practice
  • Exploring what the wounds can reveal of their own resolution
    • Using archetypal wisdom to uncover the gifts of our difficulties and challenges
  • Understanding your profession and organisation using the wounded healer archetype
    • Taking a step back to see what is going on, gaining new insights and options for action
  • Identifying the consequences of not taking the journey to healing
    • When we hurt ourselves, each other and those we wish to help
    • Understanding toxic work environments
  • Mapping a healing journey
    • What that would look like right now for you or your organisation.
Inviting the wounded healer archetype into conscious action in the life of a practitioner or organisation can be a profound and enriching experience.

Bio-Energetic Therapy - Therapeutic Touch
Healing Dimensions offers the complete training program in Therapeutic Touch. The courses are competency-based and nationally accredited through the Australian Quality Training Framework

I have been a practitioner of Therapeutic Touch for over 20 years and a teacher for 15 years. I am a foundation member of the Therapeutic Touch Association of Australasia (TTAA) and a TTAA Qualified Therapeutic Touch Teacher (QTTTA). I bring a sound theoretical as well as practice base to my teaching.

Therapeutic Touch is a wonderful therapy to use for self care and with family, friends and pets. It is a mindfulness-like process which works to:
  • Support wellbeing
  • Enrich relationships
  • Promote relaxation and reduce anxiety
  • Enhance healing.
Therapeutic Touch has been used effectively in clinical practice by a wide range of health professionals including nurses, doctors and natural therapists. It is an evidence-based therapy which has been shown to enhance relaxation, reduce anxiety and promote the healing response. Therapeutic Touch can be utilised in both mainstream health care and natural therapy settings.

Therapeutic Touch can be a valuable asset in counselling and psychotherapy, spiritual direction, life and wellness coaching practices. In addition, it offers:
  • An enhanced ability to use the mindfulness (centered) state
  • A deeper understanding of the dynamics of intent in the therapeutic relationship
  • Further exploration of the power of empathy in practice
  • An awareness of the bio-energetic flows in yourself and your client and how these may support therapy
  • Centering and grounding exercises which can be shared with clients
  • Self care and personal/professional growth.
More information is available on the Therapeutic Touch website.
