Name: Speaker Evening: Jeanette Williams, Building Biologist - How Your Home Could be Affecting Health & Behaviour
Organisation: Northern Beaches ADHD Support Group

Posted On: 21/09/2018

Speaker Evening: Jeanette Williams, Building Biologist - Topic: How Your Home Could be Affecting Health & Behaviour Jeanette will be speaking about the potential toxins in the home and how they can affect health and behaviour – particularly for children. She will discuss: · Mould · Electromagnetic fields from household wiring, street wiring and wired appliances · Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Energy from wireless devices and mobile phone towers · Chemicals · Water – drinking and bathing · Lead · Easy changes to make to improve the health of the home and to create a safe haven for the family. Jeanette is a certified Building Biologist, having undertaken her studies at the Australian College of Environmental Studies. Jeanette is also IICRC certified in Water Restoration. Since 2011 Jeanette has consulted to the largest Building Biology consultancy in Australia, and recently has begun to develop her own practice with Building Biology Sydney. As a Building Biologist Jeanette looks at the built environment, looking for environmental hazards that could potentially be implicated with chronic health issues. Building Biology encompasses mould and moisture, chemical exposure, water quality and the electrical environment. Much of Jeanette’s work has been in the field of mould and moisture, however the overlap between exposure to mould, chemicals and electromagnetic fields must always be considered. Increasingly indoor air quality assessments for residential and commercial buildings is forming a large body of her work. Jeanette has extensive field experience, assessing up to six properties every week in both residential and commercial settings. Using testing equipment, laboratory analysis, and visual inspection, along with taking an extensive history of the building and its occupants, enables a Building Biologist to ascertain the potential underlying issues and provide an action plan. A committee member of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists, Jeanette has compiled the case studies since 2016 for the Mould curriculum for the Australian College of Environmental Studies (ACES). This year Jeanette joined the ACES teaching staff. Jeanette has been interviewed for newspaper, radio and television on the subject of mould and other indoor environmental hazards and has also conducted training with the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), training Doctors and other Health Professionals on the subject of Mould Illness.

Essential Oils for ADHD, Anxiety & Sleep Join me and a small group of ADHD mums/dads for a relaxing, social morning learning which essential oils may help your child's ADHD, anxiety & sleep & how you can also use them to live a more low-tox lifestyle, whilst enjoying healthy snacks & drinks.

I've been an ADHD mum for 20 years but I've also had to help my daughter deal with chronic anxiety as well as sleep difficulties, digestive issues and chronic fatigue syndrome. We've found that getting to the root cause of problems and treating them naturally has proved most effective and this has led us to leading a more clean eating, low-tox lifestsyle. Adding therapeutic grade essential oils to our daily routines has enabled us to make this shift so easily. I've loved using essential oils for years and they are my go to remedy for anything from a headache to sunburn and everything in between - skincare, haircare, cooking, cleaning, first aid, emotional support and the list goes on. Essential oils are an affordable, easy to use and extremely effective way to assist many health and behavioural issues. Come join me as I take you on an essential oils journey to empower yourself with natural solutions to enhance your family's wellbeing. You will learn: * What essential oils are & how to use them safely * The potent affect essential oils have on the brain * How to effectively use essential oils to detox your daily life * Which oils will assist your ADHD child and your family to: Enhance focus & staying on task Relieve anxiety & calm emotions Allow deeper, higher quality sleep Support the nervous system Support the immune system Improve digestive health Follow my Facebook pages Low Tox Living with Essential Oils or Essential Oils for ADHD, Anxiety, Sleep & Mumma Self Love or you can check out my DoTERRA website at http://mydoterra.com/lowtoxlivingviviandunstan.

This weekend retreat is for women who are involved in a life transition, or who just feel the need for some nurturing. This retreat will be time out for yourself – to rediscover your direction and focus, and nurture your inner self. You may be going through a personal change, a family change, a new career, or maybe you are just looking to find peace and happiness. If you are at a place in your life where you are ready to move closer to the life you would like to have, then this art therapy weekend in the Blue Mountains is for you. Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art making to enhance emotional wellbeing. You don't need to be artistic, just willing to give it a go. Art therapy differs from traditional art making in that the focus is not on the final artwork's aesthetic appeal. Rather, with art therapy the emphasis is on the process of creating, developing and reflecting on meanings held within the artwork. Art therapy assists to improve insight, process experiences, and resolve inner conflicts. This helps to develop a more integrated sense of self with increased self awareness, self acceptance, and personal growth. The facilitators each hold a Master of Art Therapy, and as professionally qualified arts therapists they are registered with the Australian and New Zealand Association of Arts Therapists (ANZATA). The art therapy profession has been recognised and regulated around the world by organisations such as the British Association of Art Therapists, the Health Professions Council and the American Art Therapy Association. The Weekend is being held on Saturday 30 August from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday 31 August from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm On Saturday you will engage with art therapy activities relating to your life’s journey, followed by therapeutic doll making in the afternoon. Sunday begins with reflection and meditation, followed by art therapy activities for letting go and moving on. The weekend will be held at: Kihilla Retreat & Conference Centre 5 - 17 Queens Road Lawson, Blue Mountains, NSW, 2783 The retreat is nestled in a beautiful, tranquil bush setting. You will spend the weekend with three registered art psychotherapists who each specialise in different art mediums. Together they create a supportive, safe, nurturing environment where you can recognise and break old patterns, let go of the past, and use your new insight to move forward. The facilitators: Sonia Stace - As a registered art psychotherapist, accredited mental health social worker, and an approved counsellor, Sonia brings a wealth of experience and compassion to this weekend retreat. Sonia has a private practice in the Inner West of Sydney, where she predominantly sees people who have experienced traumas (such as child sexual abuse, physical assault, adult sexual assault, domestic/family violence, and pregnancy resulting from sexual assault), as well as people who are relatives of homicide victims, experiencing infertility or pregnancy related issues, or who are caring for a child with a disability. Due to her professional experience of training and managing staff and undertaking clinical work, Sonia also currently provides supervision and training for other professionals, such as social workers, art therapists, psychotherapists, and counsellors. Sue Wildman - Sue has worked primarily with women in the community sector for over 25 years. She is a registered art therapist and counsellor as well as having qualifications in social welfare and theatre studies. She works as a counsellor/art therapist and also has devised creative therapy programs and facilitated groups for the Blue Mountains Women’s Health Centre, Penrith Women’s Health Centre, Relationships Australia, Life Care Relationship Services, Wimlah Women’s Refuge, The Aboriginal Community Centre, Penrith & Emerton, Marrin Weejali Aboriginal Service, and Carers NSW. Sue has provided training for Aboriginal counselling students through the Australian Institute of Relationship Studies and R.A., and also currently provides supervision for Art Therapists as well as mentoring for Group workers. Jane Gover – Jane draws on her 30 years experience of working in as a Professional Artist, qualified Visual Arts Educator and Registered Art Therapist to this retreat. She has worked across the life spectrum from pregnant mums, with their tots, to pre-schoolers and students of all ages, and with women experiencing life transition, even into their 80’s and 90’s. She has facilitated art experiences in classrooms, museums, in her studio, through local council projects and more recently art therapy sessions. She has worked in Australia, the U.K., Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore and France. Jane is a committed and caring professional now working in the inner north area of Sydney in her mobile private art psychotherapy practice.
