    My facilitation style is inclusive and respectful.
    I am Co-Founder of Augmenting Workplaces, providing services to enhance all aspects of your workplace.
    I'm a PACFA Provisional Registered Counsellor in private practice, and the Director at Mental Health Intervention Skills Training.

    I strongly believe in the MHFA model and will continue to enjoy facilitating courses for humans from all walks of life. I have been a volunteer educator with MIEACT ( where I visited high schools in Canberra to reduce stigma, raise awareness of mental health problems, discuss the importance of early intervention and help seeking. I have diverse life skills and experience assisting people of all ages with a range of mental health problems including 10 years in university student residences.
