I believe high quality education and preventative health care provide Lifetime Value.


I believe Transformation and Healing require objective Compassion, Trust, Love, Empathy, Dignity, Courage and Freedom of Expression; without judgement.

Change is the only thing we can be sure of. For many people change is very scary.

Therefore, in order to take the risk we need to have a strong support system.


I offer an integrative toolbox of services dealing with mental health and behavioural health challenges.


I provide support for people healing from and coping through grief, loss, PTSD, trauma, stress, addictive tendencies, substance abuse, burnout, compassion fatigue, ADD, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder and the various co-occurring disorders and dis-ease. Through practises of self-care including self-awareness, self-regulation, self-nurture, emotional intelligence, gentle therapeutic yoga, meditation, intuitive art therapy and journalling I offer harm reduction tools cultivating self-compassion and Personal Insight.


I offer personalised programs with the personal sensations of what is happening in your being as the basis of your wellness program, in which your dignity and your rights are Always fully respected. I offer lifestyle tools and support while You do Your inner work.

I offer an opportunity for you to explore and gain personal insight into the cause and effect of your condition fostering a collaborative client-centred approach based on a strong foundation of the mind-body connection to support your recovery and maintain balance.

Alumni Testimonials

Tiffany Larson is a qualified social worker in Utah USA.
She joined the January 2018 course.
This is her experience.


  • I have attended Colleen's yoga class several times now and every time it has given me exactly what I needed. I particularly like her practical and physical approach combined with practices to go inwards and experience glimpses of your true being. The restorative yoga poses she often teaches leaves me with a strengthened body and mind. Looking forward to her class every week.

  • Colleen draws together her depth of knowledge & experience across a diverse range of disciplines, offering an informed & holistic approach to health & wellbeing. Her dedication, sensitivity & integrity are reflected throughout her practice. I value Colleen's advice & expertise as a holistic therapist & trust that what Colleen offers comes from a place of embodied wisdom.

  • My son is a special needs child, who suffers from uncontrolled epilepsy, is severally physically and mentally disabled, is dependent on a wheelchair and has generalized weakness. He is unable to participate independently in normal developmental activities. Colleen has followed a programme of therapy based and developmental play activities with my son in a main stream school environment, as well as at home. She has worked closely with his therapists, including his Speech Therapist and Occupational Therapist. She has learned alternative methods of communication and specialized devices. I have seen a noticeable improvement in his general strength, function and emotional well-being. I attribute this primarily to Colleen's hard work, determination and dedication. She has showed compassion and empathy whilst still being able to challenge him to improve. I know he will miss her. I have no hesitation in recommending Colleen and wish her luck in her career.

  • She communicates well at all levels from patients to consultant physicians. She is forthright, cheerful, and works well under pressure. I recommend her as a conscientious, hardworking individual.
