About Me

Carolyn_QPark_Dec17

I am passionate about supporting the transformation of negative and outdated emotional,

mental and behavioural patterns to free ourselves, realise our potential and embrace who we are.

The work I do focuses on connections,

 connections to ourselves, to others and with the world we live in.

I am a motivated, creative, and compassionate person who sees humanity with both

its lightness and its darkness and am willing to ‘dance’ with both.

I specialise in the areas of suicide and crisis and see these as gateways for transformation.

I have worked on the frontline with people for 17 years, within the mental health

and addiction fields, working with people who have experienced multiple traumas,

those in crisis and individuals wanting to kill themselves.

I love to dance and express myself through movement on my own and with others.

I have been practising Movement Medicine for over 10 years

and am now a Movement Medicine Teacher and Facilitator in Training.

I am passionate about creative expression and storytelling

and have an Advanced Diploma in Physical Theatre Practice.

My passion for the work that I do is fuelled by my own challenges with my mental,

emotional and spiritual health which created suicidal despair when I was younger.

In my adolescent years I was in a constant battle with myself and others

as I tried to make sense of my childhood experiences.

This manifested through destructive relationships with drugs, alcohol, food and sex.

These struggles carried on into my early twenties, I was lost and desperate for this to end,

for a long time I didn’t know who I was, I felt like I was two different people.

With various supports internal and external, I have worked through these issues,

and have made it my life’s purpose to support others who struggle with living.

I have worked in various services from a volunteer to project worker to management,

as well as setting up and running a crisis intervention service

for people at risk of suicide and those who are self harming.

I support people to reconnect to their bodies, and to themselves.

Rebuilding a relationship with your body and your physicality

can be an important step in transforming and empowering yourself.

Most important to me is our reconnection to hope, joy and love;

to our true selves.
