Barbara has been enthusiastically engaged in the study and research of human potential for many years. She works with the principle that as human beings we naturally desire to operate at our highest level. When we can engage and encompass the whole self, the learning process flows seamlessly. However, life throws us challenges which can discourage and side track us. We fall back into the habitual patterns we developed as children. We begin to “try hard” and limit our progress. These limiting patterns often reinforce physical, mental and emotional stress.
Discover your unrealized potential
Barbara finds that when we recognize our unrealized potential, we are able to explore possibilities in our lives way beyond our imaginings. It was her journey to recovery after a car accident in Egypt in 1984 that led to Barbara to train as a Feldenkrais Practitioner She believes that when approached with awareness, our challenges can be our greatest gifts which can enable personal growth, physical well being and the opportunity to access our full potential.
As a Feldenkrais Practitioner, Barbara works on a one to one basis with Functional Integration (FI). This gentle informative touch process engages the body and encourages communication with all our systems. During Awareness Through Movement (ATM) she uses clear easy to follow instructions to direct gentle informative movement. This helps participants explore and identify their less helpful organizations. These are then replaced them workable, elegant, positive movement strategies to unlock full movement potential.
Based on Barbara’s 44 years of work with children and parents, Barbara has created TransformAction, an integration of her skill as an educational assessor / movement and stress management consultant, By enabling parents to understand and experience the developmental process of their children, not only does the pattern shift but parents heal themselves, therefore enriching the modelling experience of the child
TransformAction works for everyone as it increases confidence, presence, self assurance and a graceful interaction with the world.

Recognizing, honoring and where necessary healing aspects of our lineage can create profound healing for ourselves and our relationships with others.
