About

Rebecca is a yoga teacher, counsellor and remedial massage therapist who draws on a range of modalities to support physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. She offers personalised yoga, including trauma-sensitive and therapeutic yoga, relaxation and remedial massage, myofascial release, dry needling, and counselling. Rebecca specialises in supporting clients who experience chronic pain, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress. She practices holistically, aware that there is no separation ... between body and mind, and with the understanding that for any treatment to succeed, it must address all layers of our being – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Having personally experienced debilitating chronic pain, Rebecca offers insight, empathy and understanding to those clients whose lives are currently impacted by ongoing pain. She is aware that many people living with chronic pain may feel that their pain is disregarded, minimised, misunderstood or misdiagnosed, and believes that genuinely understanding and acknowledging chronic pain is an essential step in the healing process. Rebecca defines chronic pain as dysfunction of the nervous and immune systems. Her research has established that women’s systems work very differently to men and as a result, the experience of pain is very different in women and men. She also says most of the research done on chronic pain is done in men, which means suggested treatments for women in chronic pain are often not suitable or effective. As a one to one yoga teacher, Rebecca creates a personalised practice, incorporating asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), yoga philosophy and meditation specifically adapted to her clients’ needs. Her intention is always to deepen the connection between mind and body to support her clients to develop insight, self-awareness, emotional balance and peace of mind. As a massage therapist, Rebecca tunes into what a client’s body is telling her and supports the body’s innate healing mechanisms. Her approach is deep but gentle, encouraging the body to release tension, trauma and compensatory muscular holding patterns rather than attempting to forcefully override the body’s protective mechanisms. She loves seeing her clients find freedom from their chronic pain and creating the opportunity for them to heal. She believes a client needs to be an active participant in their healing journey, open to a new way of thinking and prepared to move on from their “stuckness” in order to find real transformation, mentally and physically. As a counsellor, Rebecca believes that trauma and disconnection from our essence or truth is what drives most dysfunctions that we experience. She supports her clients to deepen their self-awareness and insight, connect to their truth, heal past wounds, experience personal growth and genuine healing, and make positive changes in their lives. Rebecca was suffering severely from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia when she sought healing from her pain through yoga, meditation, myofascial release and plant-based medicines. She also made changes to her diet, lifestyle, mindset, and emotional awareness, all of which are necessary to restoring genuine health and wellbeing and creating deep- seated healing. Emerging from this transformative healing, Rebecca believed she had been given a second chance at life and decided she wanted to help other people heal from their pain. She then established her practice in 2016. Rebecca is a lifelong student of yoga, bodywork, the body-mind connection, psychology and philosophy. When she is not working or studying, she is likely to be found cooking, spending time in nature, deepening her own personal practice and spending time with family and friends. Read more
