A life changing experience 20 years ago caused Katrina to change direction in her life. Ten months apart two of her nephews passed away due to illness. It was at that point Katrina began the move away from teaching and administration and decided she wanted to be able to help people find a sense of well-being and improved quality of life. She does this to honour the memory of her nephews.
In her search to find the most appropriate form of helping people, Katrina found Bowen Therapy. What drew her to Bowen was its effectiveness, gentleness and that it is Australian.
Katrina had never had Bowen Therapy before she studied to become a practitioner. However, she had heard how wonderful it was from others, how gentle, effective and non-invasive it was and how children as well as adults responded positively to it.
In 2003, Katrina founded what was then Harbour Healing and began her life as a practitioner of Bowen Therapy and educating the community on the benefits of Bowen.
Katrina continues to endeavour to help people experience the best quality of life possible regardless of their circumstances. Infants, the aged and frail, the ill and infirm, those with sports or other injuries or living in chronic pain may all benefit from Bowen Therapy and that is what continues to drive Katrina in her chosen profession.
Educating the broader community about Bowen Therapy and its many benefits has also been important to Katrina. She is a member of a local small business networking group that meet regularly to educate each-other on their services and products. She has been a member of a local complementary therapists organisation and been invited to speak to community groups such as Probus, CWA etc.
Improving a person’s quality of life is paramount and a major reason why in 2010 Katrina began the process of becoming a qualified Trainer in Bowen Therapy. Helping like-minded people help others.
Katrina is a member of Bowen Training Australia RTO#41134 and trains people in Certificate IV in Bowen Therapy 10846NAT as part of nationally recognised training.
