I am an artistic therapist and developer of Laughter Percussion. Laughter Percussion is a revolutionary new therapy that brings together people, culture, rhythm, percussion, physical energy and interaction, and most important, laughter. My workshops/sessions brighten everyone’s day, encourages interaction and connection among people and provides positive reinforcement and extra support to encourage participation, regardless of one’s abilities. It is a bliss to watch people open up and combine their joy of laughter with the joy of playing rhythmic music and singing. I am currently working with GIFSA, a non-profit organization, as a Support Worker and provide workshops/sessions to their clients through one of their programs called Rejuvenation Through Recreation (RTR). This program develops social and individual skills for youngsters and adults working on social community participation, and capacity building support as identified in their NDIS funded plan.
