A Bit About Me

Since 2010, Suzie has weaved her experience into a unique expression of helping pregnant, birthing and postnatal women immerse themselves into the depths of relaxation in their constantly changing body.

With a fascination for the intricacies of healing her own body after fracturing her pelvis in a car accident at 18, Suzie’s journey has taken her into the intricate symphony of interconnectedness between the human body and it's powerful interplay with mind and spirit. Her desire is to help use various modalities to heal physical or emotional pain, so as to allow you to enter into a state of ‘flow’, inner-connectedness and harmony.

Over the years, Suzie has immersed herself in the heart-centred practice of giving and receiving through the ancient traditions of intuitive body touch, essential oils, acupressure, fascial tissue release, lymphatic drainage, remedial corrective techniques, Reiki and other evolving energetic modalities, breathwork and protective shamanic practices. Suzie has learnt the art of listening deeply and is also trained in Psych-K for those wanting to move beyond outdated, unconscious programming. 

She supports clients in gaining clarity of mind regarding Birth Choices, with the intention of helping them work through fears of the unknown. Suzie supports women to uncover the birthing pathway that best suits their desires, from a whole-brain state. Her ambition is to educate pregnant women so they can make decisions allowing them to whole-heartedly embody the unfolding of their unique mothering pathway.

For fun, Suzie enjoys adventures with her teenager, journaling about life in new earth, creating an edible garden, bushwalking, fresh water swims, reading ~ the old fashioned way with a book in the hand, and watching the sun set in her hammock.
