Elena and Dana have a shared passion for the deep connection between mind, body and spirit, which has led them on their unique journeys of self-discovery and exploration, spanning many years.
They each draw on a variety of approaches including somatic (body) psychotherapies, neuroscience, nervous system regulation, mindfulness, early attachment, characterology, family constellations and family systems as well as a range of creative therapies in support of:
Sexuality and gender identity
Early childhood and adult trauma
Personal and spiritual development
Their approach is trauma-sensitive and collaborative - they work with you to help create healing pathways unique to you.
Dana is a trauma-informed somatic psychotherapist, yoga teacher and Reiki Master and has been in private practice for in excess of 10 years. Following 5 years of professional training in somatic (body) psychotherapy and energy medicine, she joined the teaching faculty for several years before undertaking a further 3 year accredited study in somatic psychotherapy. She co-presented mind/body grounding classes for several years, which were a source of joy and connection for participants.
To further her passion, she completed her yoga teacher training in 2017 and led many classes to local residents by the beach in the Redcliffe Peninsula.
Dana has provided front-line counselling and clinical supervision to counsellors in community sectors for over 7 years and is a professional member of the Australian Counselling Association.
Her joy lies in empowering women to remember their innate beauty and wisdom and to reconnect them to their true essence.
ELENA DI FABIO
Elena is a somatic psychotherapist and remedial massage therapist.
Elena's passion for human behaviour evolved through her own experience as a child growing up surrounded by family with mental health issues. In her adult years, this led her on a journey of self-discovery where she is now living more consciously and being present to the moment.
Our body contains the maps or stories that govern the way we move, breathe and feel in this world and in essence, this is part of our body's wisdom. Elena's desire to learn has followed the path of knowing more about the connection between mind, body and spirit.
Her studies have included a wide range of modalities that combine talk therapy and somatic bodywork and she brings an array of therapeutic techniques through remedial massage. Elena is a professional member of the Australian Massage Association.
