I am an experienced therapist working locally in Cairns since 2007. My professional journey into natural therapies began after a classic ‘sea change’ move from the UK with my family.

It has been a steep and rewarding learning curve, and my clients are a constant source of motivation.

I am interested both personally and professionally in mind body science and complimentary therapies that enhance health and happiness. In my own work practice I wear many hats! The specialities I am drawn to, reflect my own life and work experience: Having babies and raising children, several years working in the corporate sector, and running my own business.

So I am familiar with lifes challenges, and how the build up of stress can compromise the way we think and feel.

I like helping people feel better and exploring ways to keep healthy and vital. Caring therapeutic massage, mindfulness meditation and self relaxation techniques are life tools we can give ourselves that help manage our responses to stress, relieve tension in our physical body, and support mental and emotional balance, peace and happiness.

I am committed to on-going professional development and evidence based practice and I enjoy networking with a range of excellent health practitioners in Cairns.

I like to think I bring to my own work a special blend of common sense with a little bit of magic!


Zoe is a meditation teacher and a human holistic development counsellor.
