Hi. I’m Tash, and welcome to Standing Strong Bayswater. I have been involved in Standing Strong for a number of years now as an Instructor and a Mentor, in fact, I completed my practical placement for my Art Therapy degree at Standing Strong Head Office. I hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood), a Graduate Certificate in Children’s Art, Cert IV in Training and Assessment and an Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Art Therapy. Through this I acquired the knowledge needed to understand the nuances of people as well as provide me with strong investigative and analytical skills. I have a strong empathy and commitment to helping people from all walks of life. I possess the ability to provide a trusting, open, kind-hearted atmosphere that encourages learning and participation. Due to the nature of my previous work environments and studies, I can deal with difficult, perhaps painful and embarrassing situations and this I do in a calm and respectful manner.
My passion lies with empowering young people to be who they want to be. I am presently enrolled in the Graduate Diploma in Sexology at Curtin University. I have a strong passion for working as an Art Therapist with those young people in the LGBTI community or who might be struggling with their sexual or gender identity. I am also the mother of two teenage girls on the Autism Spectrum.

“It is such an honour to be part of conversations with the incredible girls at Standing Strong, in a place where they feel safe and supported, discussing ways to build self esteem, self love, build confidence, learn to think big, speak up, be motivated, feel inspired and inspiring, and leave feeling EMPOWERED.

Inspired by ageless wisdom, human evolution and spiritual intelligence. I am a dedicated father, coach, mentor and teacher whose colourful, positively charged perspective can illuminate the bleakest of nebulas, and re-wire redundant patterns that withhold mental and spiritual freedom.
My holistic approach to transformative personal guidance has been developed from over 10 years of study and practice. I consult using energetic-psychological practices such as Raja Yoga, and PSYCH-K® to work through overwhelm, uncertainty, major change, transition, and inner growth.
I am a subject matter expert in specialties of mindset performance, higher awareness, leadership development, right human relations, emotional balance and stress management.
I dedicate to a lifelong education on the art and science of evolving consciousness for humanity and sharing the qualities that will govern the new age; assisting team leaders, individuals and organisations through expansions of well-being.
