Her passion is facilitating change in creative ways, especially through group work practiced by sitting in Circle. Coming from a background of Performing Arts, Zoë is incredibly comfortable in front of small to very large groups of people, happily and naturally creating a feeling of ease. Her clients are those who long for meaning, connection and depth. Real interactions beyond the social masks worn day to day. She relishes in facilitating truthful, heartfelt conversations that bring us closer together, building understanding through expressing vulnerably, authentically and courageously. Zoë enjoys being a part of building communities, connecting workplaces, and transforming social groups who celebrate face to face interaction and inspiring people to create loving, healthy, aware families and communities who make a positive difference in the world.
A global citizen, Zoë grew up in South East Asia and lived in six countries prior to the age of 18. This experience opened her heart and mind to the intrinsic connection between wellbeing, human rights and environmental issues and inspired her to contribute to various charities as an ambassador/spokesperson including RUOK Day, The Wilderness Society, One Meal, The Alannah and Madeleine Foundation and The Mai Wiru Sugar Challenge Foundation.
Zoë lives with her husband and their young daughter in the beautiful Northern Rivers (Bundjalung Land) of NSW, Australia.
A little from Zoë:
“My intention is to strengthen connection and community, awakening people through shared meaningful experiences and story. I believe there is more that unites us than separates us and that at the core of who we are is a bedrock of similarity more so than difference.
I’m passionate about authentic creativity born of a moment; Ephemeral, fleeting but deeply felt and experienced, so much so that it leaves an indelible impression on the psyche of what it is to have fully LIVED in this unique and magnificent human form.”
