We are excited to bring to you a synthesis of Yoga & Psychology in our latest Workshop Series 

SUNDAY December 12, 2021

The Spirituality of

Non-Violent Communication

9am - 1:15pm

Graceville Bowls Club, 16 Wylie St, Graceville Ave

Join us in exploring spirituality from a psychological perspective; an approach which sees connection as central to mental-emotional wellbeing.​ 

Connecting deeply with another, we experience transcendence, a state beyond our personal limitations or neuroses.

Non-Violent Communication is the central practice of The Yoga & Psychology Community. Otherwise known as Compassionate Communication, this simple 4-step process enables emotional regulation, mutual understanding and more satisfying relationships.

Dr Rachel Hannam is the principal psychologist and owner of a busy practice with multiple locations.  Alexis Dennehy draws from post-graduate research in Public Health and over 15 years consulting in contemplative practices. They draw from over 10years each in clinical practice treating anxiety and depression, grief and loss, shame and trauma including social anxiety, substance abuse, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder using practices shown to

reduce emotional hyper-reactivity and increase prosocial behaviour.

Rachel Hannam

Rachel runs a busy psychology practice with multiple locations across Brisbane and still makes time for her own clients. Rachel holds a doctorate in Psychology and draws heavily upon acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), positive psychology, schema therapy, emotion-focussed couples therapy (EFCT), The Gottman Method, neuro-psychotherapy, and nonviolent communication (NVC).
Rachel draws from over 10 years of organisational psychology and mediation in facilitating Compassion-Focused Communication. You can catch her podcast "Help me! I'm a Comedian".  Rachel is also a wicked 80's dancer and we expect to be seeing much more of her stage performance in the future.

Drawing from over 15 years of private practice as a naturopath and yoga therapist in Brisbane's CBD, she's taught mindfulness to individuals and organisations, mostly in the legal and finance sector.  Alexis holds a Master of Public Health, and maintains a special interest in the application of sensory and breath-based practices for recovery from trauma.
