Professional Interests 

Angela is passionate about foundational reflex integration and rhythmical movements and how focused intervention can support children across areas including emotional regulation, attention and concentration, sensitivities, anxiety, handwriting challenges and much more.

Creative Skills 

Angela loves using the piano as a tool during her sessions. The piano cultivates wonder and expression for her clients, whilst allowing her to identify underlying support needs such as fine-motor skill development, posture, perseverance, attention and concentration. 

Angela's experience and passion for singing allows her to understand the benefits and it brings, such as facing new challenges, building confidence and expressing emotions. Before sharing these skills with her clients, Angela performed in choirs, vocal and choral groups and in a number of duos, gigging throughout high school and university.

In addition to piano and singing, Angela has a flair for ventures such as yoga and mindfulness, role-play and dance, all of which are immensely therapeutic in a variety of ways.
