Trauma-therapy, Body-based therapy, Self-care, Team cohesion, Urban Retreats & Family groups.
MayaKosha Healing is a unique Sydney-based well-being business. I use a combination of trauma-specific and yogic frameworks to support individual recovery journeys and social work practices. The integration of therapeutic mind and body interventions support individuals, families or teams to experience relaxation, rejuvenation and holistic recovery. Trauma informed therapy and body based tools increase resilience, stress-reduction, interoception, emotional regulation, better sleep and other well-being benefits. Clients are provided with a variety of options when it comes to managing their overall journey towards wellness.

Alys is a Hatha Vinyasa yoga teacher, social worker and a trauma therapist specialising in children, young people and families who have experienced of trauma, abuse, out of home care and the child protection system.
Alys founded MayaKosha Healing on 26 May 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, her yoga teaching was placed temporarily on hold due to the Government restrictions on Sydney businesses. As a front line officer and specialist practitioner at one of Sydney’s leading trauma therapy services, Alys is privy to the distress, overwhelm and trauma that our community and essential workers all experienced during the pandemic. As such, her belief in the importance of available, holistic therapies to support clients in their healing journeys, and their workers and services involved, was further consolidated. Alys could see the benefit to providing both trauma- informed care and body- based well-being services to reduce the impact of stressors. Alys can work from her North Strathfield practice setting or in outreach capacities with external agencies for special projects.
Alys has worked in the out of home care and trauma therapy field since 2013 and is a NSW Victims Services registered counselling social worker. Prior to that, she worked at one of Sydney’s main disaster hospitals in front line and managerial positions within the Switchboard and Mental Health Departments from 2010 until 2013. These combined experiences provided Alys with a multi-layered perspective of healing from acute crisis through to longer term therapeutic support.
