Velvetmoon Health and Wellbeing


Trained through the Australian College of Applied Psychology in Counselling, I apply my varied counselling skills, experience and methods knowledge to help you to understand how your mind works, how culture, family, trauma and life events have shaped you to date. Counselling can help you to gain insight into what is happening for you right now, understand moods and behaviour, find clarity, think in a new way to promote change.

You can learn how to improve your Interpersonal skills, motivation and self esteem. Understand relationships, increase conflict management skills. Explore trauma, grief and loss and manage negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I also use Clinical Hypnotherapy to help with issues you may be facing.

I often use EFT in conjunction with traditional counselling modalities to address negative thinking, perceptions and fears.


Emotional Freedom Technique is also known as Tapping. It is a simple but effective technique somewhere in between hypnosis, meditation, and acupressure. You can learn it in a matter of minutes and use it to apply instant relief to stressful situations in your life.

Most people find immediate relief from applying EFT to the most stressful feelings in their present situation. Continued application can then produce profound changes in your life.


Touch affects the whole organism, be it human or animal. It's ten times stronger than verbal or emotional contact, and it affects nearly everything we do. No other sense can arouse you like touch ~ it has a biological basis. Those animals who did more touching instinctively produced offspring that survived, and their genes were passed on and the tendency to touch became even stronger. We forget that touch is not only basic to our species, but the key to it (Ackerman, Diane A Natural History of the Senses, in Jean Liedloff “Babes in Arms: Why Infants Need to be Held”)

Infant Massage Classes

I am a certified Infant Massage Instructor with Infant Massage Information Service (IMIS). I run classes or coach 1:1 if required. Classes are limited to very small groups for quality attention and instruction. Individual classes are 3 sessions of 1 hour each, and small groups are 4 sessions of 1 hour each. This is so that your baby can take in what is happening and you can absorb the information and techniques.

Aromatherapy Massage

Trained in AromaTouch® Massage, I use dōTERRA® CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils which have been recognized as the most therapeutic oils in the world. This technique is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet. Not only will you be calmed and relaxed, but your immune and anti-inflammatory systems will be stimulated and balance restored to all systems in your body. It has to be experienced to be believed!


Reiki is a method of stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. When your life energy is high, you'll feel strong and confident, be more relaxed and centered and less likely to get sick. When it is low, you'll often feel tired, be more easily affected by stress and less resistant to illness.

The attuned Reiki healer has had their body's energy channels and chakras opened and cleared of obstructions by a course of Reiki attunements with an accredited Reiki Master. Upon receiving the first attunement, the healer becomes a channel for this universal healing energy, and is able to heal self and others by placing their hands on or above the receiver's body to allow the life energy to flow through the palm chakras into energy channels of the receiver.

I am a Reiki Master under the pure and dedicated Rev Lynette Leckie-Clark of Kuthumi School of Wisdom in SE Queensland. My lineage and session include Tibetan Usui Reiki practices, in conjunction with crystal and vibrational essences healing.


Dogs and cats, as mammals, have physical anatomies quite similar to that of people, and a similar but enhanced sensory system.

Animals, like humans, have a physical body, an emotional body, a mental body and a spiritual body. Pets are as spiritual as people, if not more so, and the spiritual body is also a principal factor in healing animals. Healing an animal is optimal when all systems are treated holistically using veterinary intervention, good dietary practice and a metaphysical treatment. Working exclusively on only one of the planes does only a small part of the job.

Reiki on animals takes a fraction of the time that it does on a person. When the energy is not needed, cats may resent it (they invented this energy after all, and aren't sure they want to share it!), and dogs get silly about it (“I love you, Mummy, let's play now” as they bounce away). When they are hurting however, they accept the healing. It is highly soothing for an animal upset or in pain.
