About Andrea Holland
Hello, my name is Andrea Holland and welcome to my Access Consciousness Profile!
I have been a Speech Pathologist in private practice and the education system for around 30 years now (and no intention of slowing down!).
About 5 or 6 years ago, my daughter Amanda started talking about this weird thing called "The Bars". I was a bit skeptical at first, but didn't want to miss out on anything so I gave it a go.
I have been running Bars ever since. I slowly started incorporating it into my Speech Pathology practice - I work with a lot of "X-Men" - kids (and adults) who have been labelled with ADD, ADHD, ASD (Autism and Aspergers), OCD, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, you name it!
I have always seen the brilliance in all these children and started using some of the Access tools with them in sessions. Sometimes it was a little of Bars to help them get calm and happy. Sometimes it is sending blasts of energy to the earth with a "1,2,3!" which connects them with their body and gives them energy when they are feeling sluggish... and I add more as I go along.
Access Bars and tools have augmented my therapy sessions, creating more fun and ease for everyone - the kids and their families, and me!
One of my clients' Mums recently said "I run the powerband on my son every night. He picks up so much "stuff" from school during the day and then has trouble sleeping at night. But when I run this on him for just a few minutes when he is in bed before he goes to sleep, he really settles down."
I have so much gratitude for the Bars and Access. It has contributed so much to my life being more playful, joyful and possibility-filled.
If you have any questions about working with children and Access or think this may contribute to you, your life and your family, please feel free to get in touch.
