Meet Joann Farkas
Joann Farkas is an accredited Holistic Counsellor, Kinesiologist and Usui Reiki practitioner and has recently been accredited to teach her training course ‘Informed Communication & Counselling for Practitioners’. Jo has also been privileged to study the Buddha Dharma education including spiritual nutrition & fasting at the Dharma International Healing Centre on the beautiful island of Koh Samui in Thailand.
Having a specific interest and passion for the neurological aspect of the impact stress and trauma has on our ability to think, process, function and thrive, Jo has participated in further training and specialised kinesiology programs addressing Neuro-emotional pathways, Neuroplasticity and Brain Nutrition. Combined with a specific counselling model, Jo has worked successfully with PTSD, grief counselling, chronic anxiety and stress, as well as many neurological disorders, chronic illness, learning delays, sleep disturbances including insomnia and night terrors, migraines, hormonal imbalances and many more issues that affect an individual’s ability to fully function in the world.
Jo also holds a certificate in Nutritional Wellness & Lifestyle Coaching and has participated in a number of workshops including wellness retreats, yoga & breath meditations, nutrition, fermentation & raw food classes. Wim Hof method, functional movement, yoga, and a passion for community and connectedness are an essential part of Jo’s life. As a mother of two young children, working with kids, sharing this approach with her own children and paving the way to keep our kids conscious, connected and enlivened in a world of growing technology is also a passion of Jo’s.
Jo's philosophy and approach to health and wellness coaching is that it is important to work with the physical, emotional & spiritual body, and to become an authentic, empowered & motivated human being, it is essential to connect and synergize each of these parts of ourselves. Being able to listen to your body, connect and hold your emotions in mindfulness and develop a greater awareness of yourself is an amazing and empowering journey that can bring about healing emotional difficulties & struggles, identify and address physical blocks and reconnect us to our innate physical intelligence, opening us to the creative & divine aspect of our higher selves, our spiritual self.
Jo is an allied health specialist and you can find her working with her team at Karrinyup Wellness centre, or at her clinic in Mount Lawley.
After feeling a little stuck in my new business, I was recommended by a close friend to try kinesiology with Joann Farkas. It has been such a gift and an amazing experience in learning to break through negative emotions and blocks within myself. It's refreshing to meet someone who totally gets my journey, and is genuinely supportive of moving forward with me.
Jo, you're an angel!
