With the use of her background in psychology she has now added Genetic Brain Organisation Profiling to her unique skill set. 

Genetic brain profiling involves an assessment during which the Genetic Blueprint of brain dominance is determined of a person as established at conception.  The basal or genetic dominance profile indicates the dominance of hemisphere as well as that of the 4 modalities namely the hand, foot, ear and eye. The Genetic profile is innate and influences the way that the body and mind process information. The hemisphere and modalities not dominant gives indication of skills and attributes that needs deliberate development in order to function holistically in society. For more information see our blog posts.
