Davies is a board certified hypnotherapist, trained under Rochelle Jaffe at her modern, mindfulness-based Ashland School in Oregon. She regularly adds to her study in both hypnotherapy and complimentary modalities, like NLP, NVC and mindful self-compassion with various international trainings.
Alongside her private practice, for the last year she's worked as a lead therapist in boutique residential drug and alcohol treatment on Maui, focusing on supporting the healing of trauma. She has eight years training and practice in non-violent communication. She teaches ongoing NVC classes and a practice group (to which you're invited).
Previous to this, Davies lived, worked and studied at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, learning gestalt, reiki, shiatsu, NVC, meditation, creative practice, living in community and making extravagant desserts for everyone on Saturday nights. She's done a lot of her own personal growth work, including years of hitting cushions with a stick in bioenergetic psychotherapy. Before all of this, she worked as a film maker and writer for a couple of decades New Zealand.
The depth, richness and diversity of Davies' life experience and training allow her to offer a wealth of creative and embodied experience to her clients, along with a genuine kindness and sense of humor.
