I have over 20 years experience working with adults and adolescents. My approachable style aims to comfortably support couples recovering from affairs and poor communication skills to build stronger emotional connections, to empower individuals struggling with overcoming trauma, transitioning to adulthood, career changes, grief, and deep guilt/shame and anxiety.

 

My desire is to provide support, guidance and education so that people can thrive and lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.

 

I also believe in educating people about the impact mental health has on peoples lives. With a strong belief in the importance of early intervention.

Mental Health First Aid Training 

Mental health problems are common - 1 in 4 people will experience an anxiety disorder and 1 in 6 people will experience depression at some stage of their lives. Throughout the course of a person’s life, it is highly likely that an individual will either develop a mental health problem or have close contact with someone who does.

I am passionate about mental health and empowering everyday Australians with the first aid skills to support people who may be developing a mental health problem, worsening illness or in who are in crisis.

 

Just like physical first aid, mental health first aid will teach how you to communicate and assist someone in  need. You could be the one who makes the difference.
