A note on healing:
“Stemming from my own experiences, I have an interest in how one can take and draw from a range of sources to find balance within our patterns of disharmony. Listening and learning from change, assisted through reflection, often bit by bit we realise that we can holistically take charge of our own health. I am interested in medicine that facilitates this process both for myself and the world around me.”
