2022-2023 Management Committee members

Alice Bullivant

President

Alice has been a member of the AKA since 2017, and is currently a Level 2 RSKP member.

Alice graduated from the College of Complementary Medicine in early 2015 with Diplomas in Kinesiology and Mind Body Medicine, and then went on to study an Advanced Diploma in Complementary Medicine with the same college.

Since opening her business, KinesiAlice, Alice has built up her business from a home-based hobby business into a full-time clinic at Riverstone, NSW, where she shares a thriving practice with a psychology business.

Alice is also a twice-published author, corporate wellness facilitator (currently with a large pharmaceutical company!), retreat facilitator, meditation instructor, and workshop facilitator, especially for those newer to working in natural therapies and running a business.

Alice has developed a small range of her own essential oils and aromatherapy products and has also had additional training in tissue salts and essences.

Alice is a wife and a mother to two kids aged 15 and 11.  Her 15 year old is the reason she discovered kinesiology and she is grateful every day that he led her to this path, and for the many lessons she has learned on her journey so far.

Alice comes from a corporate background, having worked with a large pharmaceutical company and for a large fast food corporation, and is also a qualified audiometrist.

Alice has variously been a volunteer coordinator, facilitator and worker bee for corporates, schools, dance schools and sports clubs, and believes that all her varied experience over life serves her well to step into a role with the AKA, and is looking forward to getting to know everybody.

Alice loves her work, and loves to learn, and can’t wait to learn more from our members.
