Meet Emma

Meet Emma, a seasoned performance and sports psychologist specializing in the unique world of pole dancing and aerial arts. With a rich history of competing at the State level in sports like swimming, athletics, and volleyball, Emma seamlessly transitioned into the captivating realm of aerial training and competition.

Drawing on seven years of pole dance expertise and five years of mastering aerial lyra (hoop), Emma has not only honed her skills but also showcased them in various aerial and circus competitions. Notably, she graced the stage at the Bend The Air National Finals in 2023, marking a pinnacle in her aerial journey.

Beyond her personal achievements, Emma channels her passion into applying the principles of successful high performance to athletes, business professionals, and, of course, her own aerial performances.

With a diverse professional background spanning elite sport, career transition and coaching, recruitment and selection, crisis support, drug and alcohol programs, health psychology, and behavior change, Emma has become a trusted figure. Having provided one-on-one sessions, group workshops, and performance support both domestically and internationally, she has collaborated with some of Australia's most accomplished athletes, coaches, and entrepreneurs.

Emma's unique approach is rooted in her varied experiential background, offering a supportive, client-focused, and practical foundation to her work. In addition to her expertise in the realm of performance, Emma extends her counseling services to address mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety. Driven by a genuine passion for helping others achieve their personal best, Emma is dedicated to supporting individuals on their journey to success.
