Ingrid began her career as an occupational therapist in the 1980s and discovered Touch for Health (TFH) in the 1990s which naturally led onto learning many other kinesiology trainings. She has worked in Australia and the U.K and currently resides in Melbourne, Australia. Over the years she has taught TFH and the International College of Professional Kinesiology Practice (ICPKP) syllabus. As part of the Australian Institute of Kinesiologists (AIK) national committee in 2012-2014 she assisted with the AIK conference planning committee and more recently contributed to the Australian Natural Therapies Review working party.
Ingrid is also a Buddhist practitioner with experience teaching meditation and retreats. She is also passionate about using communication skills to complement her kinesiology practice having engaged in non-violent communication (NVC) and compassionate communication courses. She currently runs a TFH-based kinesiology practice from her home in Melbourne and works as an occupational therapist in a community-based rehabilitation setting. She loves walking her dog in the country, listening to music, yoga, meditation and spending time with friends and family.
Ingrid became keen to contribute to TFH-based kinesiology research when realising how very few peer-reviewed research studies had been published in the field. She completed a Master of Clinical Research degree which included conducting a qualitative research study on clients’ experiences of kinesiology which has recently been published.
