Naomi has had a lifelong fascination with the intersection of dance/movement and wellbeing. Since 2017, she has facilitated many groups using therapeutic movement, dance & creativity. She uses a blend of modalities to create a safe space for participants to reclaim, integrate and embody all aspects of self.
Her journey has involved her own processes through recovery and empowerment, which began at an early age and still continue. Her purpose in this work was awakened during a transformational trip to New York and Niagara Falls.
She has worked with: aged care organisations, the Inner West Council to create not-for-profit Dance by Donation workshops upon receipt of a grant, participants of varied abilities, toddlers, teenagers, young adults and adult carers, with a finding that this work resonates widely.
To support the safety of all offerings at Hope & Motion, Naomi's trainings have included: a previous chapter in competitive dance, Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), Diploma of Leadership in Expressive Arts & Group Work and a Graduate Diploma of Psychological Sciences. She is currently completing her Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) on the path towards registration and aims to eventually create greater accessibility for related sessions under Medicare.
At the core of her practice is a passion for providing affordable, accessible, multi-modal, trauma-informed support for mental and emotional health, using ancient, innate and holistic tools, such as movement and dance. To learn more explore her insights & musings on the blog.
