Meagan has a BA in Dance and Anthropology, Dip Dance Movement Therapy, is currently completing a Masters in Creative Arts Therapies at Melbourne University and training at The Synergetic Play Therapy Institute™

 

Meagan is passionate about the healing power of creative arts, play and movement to support a healthy development of the whole self, and for a child to embody their highest potential in health, happiness and relationships. She has a special interest in working with children with ASD and children experiencing the negative effects of stress and trauma, to support emotional regulation, cognition, self-expression, communication and harmonious ways of being in relationship.

 

Meagan’s practice utilises the psychotherapeutic use of movement, developmental patterns, the therapeutic power of play and nervous system regulation, and is informed by attachment theory and the interpersonal neurobiology of trauma.

 

Outside of Play Therapy Melbourne, Meagan provides specialist creative dance within the early childhood education sector and works in private practice to educate, prepare and parents for birth and the postpartum time. Meagan balances her professional therapy work with her own artistic practices of dance and being a Mum.
