Bio

I am a Counsellor and the Director of MHIST - Mental Health Intervention Skills Training. I worked for 10 years with residential students on campus at The Australian National University in a role assisting residents with academic and personal development.

Qualifications

My qualifications include a Graduate Diploma in Counselling, Graduate Certificate in Community Counselling, Master of Management, Bachelor of Communication, Certificate IV in Training & Assessment, SCUBA Instructor and Chef. I am also an ASIST trainer (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).

Facilitation & Instructor Experience

My facilitation style is inclusive and respectful. I have delivered over 100 courses including:

Alt text--Standard (adults helping adults)
Alt text--Youth (adults helping youth)
Alt text--Blended Workplace
Alt text--Blended Tertiary
Alt text--Standard & Alt text--Youth Refresher
Alt text--MHFA for Gambling Problems
Alt text--MHFA for the Suicidal Person
Alt text--MHFA for Non-Suicidal Self Injury

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 (mieact.org.au) 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. I currently work as a counsellor at Menslink supporting young guys between the age of 10-25.
