For over 4 years, Mia has had the pleasure of training in and working with people with disabilities and mental health concerns under the NDIS. Using her training, experiences and love of the human experience, Mia has been blessed to work up close with people, creating strategies to support their wellbeing and enhance their experience of day to day life through ABA Therapy techniques and other documented methods.
Mia has been creating safe space for people to thrive and expand in for many years, beginning her respite work journey in her own space about 10 years ago and now opening into that work again for families who require the feeling of deep support on a regular basis to truly support families and their loved ones with a disability to feel a sense of community and connection in their journey.
Graduating in 2014 from the Academy of Hypnotic Science in Cheltenham, Victoria, Mia has been practicing Hypnotherapy and expanding on her knowledge of the mind and brain function through a Diploma of Neuropsychology and an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, as well as ABA Therapy (Applied Behavioural Therapy) and a Cert 4 in Disability alongside other courses in ABA Therapy and Positive Behavioural Therapy, to ensure that she is able to meet the needs of those who have Neurodivergent needs. Drawing on the practice of Lomi Lomi (level 1, 2014, level 2 and Hot Stone 2022) and the basics of Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy to bring trauma informed care into the physical experience of safety in the Central Nervous System through Flow Relaxation Massage.
Teaching people since 2014 of the art of flow through Hula Hooping, Ecstatic Dance, Creative Expression courses (The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron), Empowerment and Meditation Workshops and courses.
Mia has been living the life of flow, open to the beauty the world has to offer for many a moon, being led to the medicine of dance through her own challenges as a youngster...in this way, opportunity arose to perform across Australia, to teach classes and workshops, and to be honoured to be Creative Director for the GWNH Annual Solstice Celebration for the past 10 years and performing both solo and with Phoenix Rising Troupe as a fire twirler while raising her 5 beautiful children. It is through the experience of living in this delicious flow, leaning into it through challenging times, that birthed and underpins all of the rich learning of flow and teaching strategies on how to stay in "That Happy Place" regardless of the outside world.
While the Certificates and Diplomas have given rise to much in the way of analytical framework for the offerings here, in working with Mia, you are working with one who practices a life of living in the flow with a focus on wellbeing and a compassion for where you are at, wherever that might be.
With a passion for people and community, Mia has been regularly volunteering since she was 15 years old in numerous programs with a number of different organisations. Serving in programs that support people with Disabilities, the elderly, families and the general community and creating a welcoming environment for people to step in to. Mia has served on the board of the Geelong West Neighbourhood House, and currently is on the Committee for Turtle Bend Events as well as volunteering for the Red Cross.
