Let me introduce myself.
A Passionate Pioneer in Health Professional Training
Professional Vision: Hello, I'm Angela, driven by a mission to provide accessible, up-to-date training and well-being services for health professionals. At Concinnity, our vision is to revolutionise healing by integrating Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Embodiment (SE), and Polyvagal Theory into health practices.
My Journey: Traversing the globe for trauma training, I've invested in my professional development to combat outdated models and long waiting lists in healthcare services. My frustration birthed Concinnity – a platform for evidence-based, affordable, and accessible professional development.
Who I Am Professionally: As of 2021, I am proud to be New Zealand's first trauma therapist certified by Bessel van der Kolk and the Trauma Research Foundation. My toolkit includes Neuroscience, IFS, Polyvagal Theory, Safe and Sound Protocol®, Mindfulness, and more. I approach client work with a 'do no harm' ethos and am a lifelong learner, committed to integrating IFS into everyday health practices.
Author and Innovator: I have authored three books, including 'Parts Of Me: A Kid’s Guide to Internal Family Systems'. I'm also the creator of The Advancing Protocol®, a neuroscience-based process for trauma release.
Leading Concinnity Group: As the director of Concinnity Group, I oversee three therapeutic services:
- The Trauma Release Centre, focusing on neuroscience-based therapy.
- The Phenomenal Therapist, an online IFS community.
- Concinnity Limited, dedicated to supporting health professionals.
Join Me on This Journey: As we continue to uncover the mysteries of the brain, body, and heart, I invite you to join me in this journey of discovery and growth.
In service, with abundant love and kindness,
Angela – Your colleague and cheerleader
