"I believe sharing tried and true techniques and skills related to wellbeing is a privilege.


If you are an individual looking for a holistic experience designed to foster a lifestyle of true self-care preserving physical and mental health, or a therapist interested in integrating creative and embodied techniques into your practice, I have an event for you."  Elle

This page is where you can find out about events I will be hosting or participating in. Wether I am invited to speak at an event, or hosting my own event related to physical and psychological health, I love to create interactive and engaging experiences for those attending.

Participant Feedback 

"Very timely session, the experiential workshop helped me feel more grounded whilst working with complex young people online. I keep returning to the safe space in my imagination from the guided meditation one day on." 

BAAT Experiential seminar participant

I find it so exciting to tailor experiences related to my skillset incorporating movement, art making and multi sensory elements such as aroma or sound to make each experience unique. I love to create connections in both online events and in person events, with small groups, or large groups.

'Thank you Elle your workshop was definitely a highlight of the day. It was nice mix of theory and practical implication and left me with much food for thought. It was really good to get some exercises for self-care at the end of a full day too.'
