Are anxiety, overload, or emotional dis-regulation a part of your family’s existence?
If you’ve just silently nodded to yourself, well, you’re in the right place. I’m here to teach you about your child’s brain, emotional & sensory needs so that you can help them to function at their best, kicking these problems to the curb and supporting your children to thrive.
I’m Alli ~ Mum, Wife, Educator, Advocate, Speaker, Neurologic Music Therapist and creator of Brains = Behaviours.
Since 2005 I’ve run a private music therapy practice in both clinical and community settings in the areas of early childhood intervention, special educational needs, autism spectrum disorder, juvenile detention, youth engagement, mental health, aged care, palliative care, dementia care, perinatal care and speech-rehabilitation.
In 2016 AMP recognised my workshop Brains = Behaviours with a grant and I was named a 2016 National AMP Tomorrow Maker for my contribution to helping create a better tomorrow for Australian families.
My aim is to offer you lightbulb moments. New levels of clarity that help you understand your child that little bit better, give you the knowledge you seek to empower you in making positive change for your families, classrooms, clients and friends.
I’m here for you, I love to hear from you, and I wish you well on the journey. xxx
