Get to know Rita
Rita Carino began her career in 1996 as a Social Worker. In her 12 years of Social Work employment, she has worked in the community health sector, mental health sector and hospital sector. She has worked with a variety of people who have been homeless, drug and alcohol dependent, those suffering from emotional pain and trauma, people with psychiatric and mental health problems. She has worked with young people, mature aged people and senior aged people.
In 2006, Rita commenced on her journey to learn more about Mind Body Medicine to assist her clients to better understand the messages their bodies were sending them. It was an opportunity for her clients to understand how their stresses and negative reactions to life situations began, affected their physical and emotional body and how they could be released. In her Social Work career and as a Holistic Counsellor and Mind Body Medicine Practitioner, she has worked with people in a positive way. Rita has been able to assist others with their anxiety, depression, body image issues, self- esteem issues, grief and loss, pain and energy problems associated with daily stresses and the pressures from daily living.
She has assisted her clients to attain inner peace, and has helped her clients learn from their life choices and patterns and in turn make positive choices and decisions.
Rita practices what she preaches.
She uses Mind Body Medicine in her daily life and with her family.
As a mother of 2 children, (an 11 year old son and 6 year old daughter), she understands the struggles and difficulties that arise from parenting, and also the different life stages children go through. Both her children have experienced different challenges in their life. This includes self – confidence, anxiety, fears such as nightmares and being scared of the dark and anger outburst to name a few. Rita’s children regularly take flower essences remedies and she is has seen significant changes. Her 6 year old daughter began prep this year. Her daughter was feeling extremely overwhelmed, scared, insecure and shy. Within weeks of beginning her remedy positive changes emerged.
She is now a very confident, happy child with lots of friends and loves learning and going to school! Flower Essence, Reiki and Massage are also used on the family for pain, aches, accidents and fatigue.
