going on inside of
you and you have
no control...?

About Janine

Janine considers herself a "Kaussie" (a Kiwi born Aussie).  She is a wife and mother of adult children.  She also has a very old "guard dog" called "Blitzen" (named after Santa's reindeer when the kids were little).  Janine has a great sense of humour.  Her creed is that therapy should be fun - and her motto - "if we're not having a laugh, we are doing it wrong".
