Bio

Qualified and experienced in training Standard, Youth and Teen MHFA, I am a Counsellor and also a farmer with a passion for working with Rural people. Having spent a lifetime farming both in England and Gippsland, I returned to study in order to help farming families and rural people. I facilitate MHFA with my husband Ross who with a background in farming and finance makes ours an excellent combination. We believe mental health is of equal importance if not more so than physical health and the health of our farming businesses. We pride ourselves on delivering at the ‘grass root’ level, and as we know how hard it is to sit in training for two whole days, our delivery can be flexible. Our costs are also kept to a minimum in reflection of this. As a team we are will to travel to rural areas through Victoria and other states. Previous courses we have run have been in small isolated communities such as Buchan and Tubbut and also larger towns such as Bairnsdale, Sale and Traralgon, participants have ranged from Community members, farmers, Neighbourhood House co-ordinators, receptionists, health workers, Shire staff, Bush Nurses, through to pharmacists to name a few and, into organisations such as Men's Shed Assoc and Murray Goulburn.
