Lucine is originally trained as a mediator and facilitator of conflict resolution (M.A, Mphil Conflict Resolution). Raised in Detroit (USA) she spent a decade in South America working in conflict resolution, teaching movement with ex-combatants and studying the shamanic traditions and medicines of indigenous Amazon cultures, whilst working as a facilitator at an ayahuasca centre.
She fell in love with the practice of 5Rhythms® in 2006 and became a teacher in 2016 with her two young children along on the journey.
Her 1:1 work is informed by this diversity of life experiences; it is somatically guided & trauma informed, embedded in a deep respect for traditional cultures, with a deep bow to the healing potency of psychedelic assisted therapy, and firmly rooted in the IFS protocol (Level 1 Trained)
Each 1:1 session looks different depending on the individual and the parts that need attunement. Some parts need more somatic expression, other parts need to communicate verbally. The foundation of deep respect for the client’s protective system and being guided by client’s Self energy remains the same.

"I had done some past work but struggled to integrate and find cohesion. Body movement is a universal language that has bridged the language barrier between parts of self. Combining 5Rhythms and IFS has brought me to a place of unity within me that I've never experienced."
Zane Williams, Melbourne
"How to describe Lucine? No one label fits. Neither counsellor nor therapist do her justice. She’s a wise teacher, a best friend, a shaman, a spirit guide. She’s my lifeline through major life transitions and the smaller, still challenging, bumps in life. I can share all parts of me with her, even those thoughts I dare not voice to myself, much less to anyone else, and I still feel accepted and loved. At times I feel like she’s working a kind of magic, weaving together threads in my life I haven't recognised. She knows exactly what to say to guide me, to comfort me, to shed light, to challenge me and my limiting beliefs in a loving way. She enables me to go to the places my soul craves and my mind fears. She knows how to walk the line between giving me the love and support I need and when to hold me accountable and push me out of the nest so I can fly on my own. She’s a conduit to a higher wisdom already in me but forgotten along the way. That remembering is like finding my way home and belonging again. "

"I have been working with Lucine in one on one sessions for some years. She is like a dive buddy. Always there when I need support being brave, looking out for my best interests and reminding me to be present and to do the work. It isn't easy. Sessions usually bring a wave of emotions as we dive beneath the surface and explore the depths. I believe I am living more of my life. I am able to give more to my loved ones, to be present and to be honest. I hope I have Lucine in my life for many more years."

"I really benefit from the immediacy of the sessions and the gifts and messages that come to me through movement. These “take-home’s” play into my week, helping to inform how I interact with and interpret the surroundings and situations I find myself in. With a raised awareness and embodied perspective, my understanding is deepened, and thoughtfully layered through the lens of the learnings gleaned from each session. It’s a rewarding self-gift, and with her intuitive, considered, fun and caring approach, Lucine gets to the heart of the matter, and the dance begins. Thanks Lucine, I didn’t realise just how worthwhile this would be until I experienced it and I’m so glad I did."

"I respect Lucine’s work and enjoy her classes. I also love all things to do with the soul’s evolution into love but Lucine takes this from a different perspective to my work. From my position she works with the shadow side of the human psyche and her workshop allowed me to reconnect with a lost side of my childhood. I found this immensely rewarding and satisfying and I left the series feeling like I had gained deeper insight into another aspect of my life. I highly recommend Lucine as a facilitator and I thoroughly enjoyed her Empowered Body series workshop."
