Part of Jen’s mandate to encourage self development and understanding has lead her to organise numerous workshops throughout the years for other skilled presenters and facilitators. These have included various approaches to bodywork, illuminating the Sacred Feminine, wholistic healing with emotional release and breath work.
Highly versed in herbal and natural remedies, Jen has developed her own range of health giving products such as Moisturisers and Healing creams and Herbal teas derived from her own back yard. Due to her thorough knowledge, she was consulted by ‘Gardening Australia’ ABCTV for a story about back yard medicinal herbs in 2000.
Her compassionate nature, empathy and intelligence is evident, and her opinion is often sought by other health professionals. Her professional confidential approach and wholistic view of health and medicine includes consultation with other medical practitioners including local GPs and other health professionals.
Jen constantly updates her knowledge in many aspects of naturopathic and medical approaches so she can best help you. Jen is aware of her limitations and thus has a good professional referral network in place to assist you.
Jeni’s life experience stands her in good stead to appreciate the challenges of work and family, the demands and joys of relationships and the balance we all strive towards. She feels blessed to be a parent, a child, a sibling, a friend, a partner and loves to play regularly in the garden and forest, the table tennis table and with music.
