Read about my credentials here.
I’m the Founder and Director of Seeking Balance International.
I’m a vestibular audiologist, registered senior yoga teacher, mindfulness educator and neuroplasticity therapist.
What this means is that I help you rewire and retrain your body so that you can feel at ease.
I have presented at medical conferences, authored journal articles and run professional workshops internationally. My ROCK STEADY recovery program has helped people from all around the world heal their symptoms using neuroplasticity.
I offer a highly needed and refreshing perspective on healing for people living with chronic vertigo of tinnitus.
I am the only vestibular audiologist and neuroplasticity therapist consulting in the recovery of persistent dizziness and tinnitus. I use an integrative medicine approach. (I don’t sell hearing aids or prescribe ‘fixes’.)
Through private therapy and world-class in-home therapy support programs, I teach you how to recover your sensory system and feel normal again. You can do it from home. Read my manifesto.
The back story
My vertigo and tinnitus career started at The University of Melbourne, including working at its world-class Vestibular Clinic from 2008 – 2014, with a team of elite medical specialists.
So why did I leave?
In 2008 my brother broke his neck skiing.
He became a quadriplegic, and I became one of his primary carers.
I chose to leave Melbourne and live near my brother so that I could quite literally be his arms or legs when he needed assistance.
I created Seeking Balance online so that I could live by the coast, offer high-quality, accessible resources to my vertigo and tinnitus clients, and be available as a carer for my brother.
It has quite simply been the best decision I ever made (read more).
Working via video calls and eLearning platforms has enabled me to reach more people globally and see better lasting outcomes in shorter periods of time.
Shifting my professional clinic online has transformed my clients results for the better and given me the flexibility to surf on my lunch breaks.
I do it my way. I give you the freedom to do it your way.
I understand how you feel
I’ve had both vertigo and tinnitus. So I get it.
I’ve had that spinning, swaying sensation. I felt distressed and ‘out of body’.
Why do I feel like this? Will I get better? How long will this take? Is it possible?
Luckily, I could navigate my way to use neuroplasticity.
I got through it.
Now I’ve dedicated my career to supporting vertigo and tinnitus clients through their recovery process. I designed the digital road map.
A bit more about me
When I’m not seeking balance at work, I’m creating, connecting, and jumping into the beauty of nature.
People love my ability to say YES to random opportunities.
I’ve done things like stand-up comedy, walked the Spanish Camino trail and played my violin in festivals around the world.
Music has created a pathway to profound and lasting friendships in my life.
Surfing has helped me use neuroplasticity and mindfulness skills… to go from total overwhelm to ease.
I am told that I am present, warm, engaging, loving and wise.
My calling is to bring you one step closer to your sovereignty, your inner ‘Self’.
So you know a bit about me and why I created Seeking Balance.
Here’s the professional bio with all the serious stuff.
