Janelle is an occupational therapist with additional body work training. She supports mothers to connect to their body so they can navigate mothering transitions with self-love, confidence and vitality. With a focus on pelvic health, mental health and menstrual cycles, she explores rite of passage and the ways feminine transitions impact roles, relationships, participation and joy. Her work brings together wellbeing for the head, heart and womb and is strongly influenced by her own mothering journey.
Her private practice is based in Melbourne, Australia, with online support and mentoring also available.
