Bio

I am the CEO and Founder of Phynix Initiative, a company dedicated to raising mental wellbeing around the world. I am a Mental Health Resilience and Recovery Coach, an international best-selling author, international speaker and Australasian Award winner.

In 2018 I left my 27 year career in the Australian Public Service to pursue my obsession of helping individuals and organisations around the world to improve their mental wellbeing. This is done through Mental Health training and coaching in First Aid, Resilience and Recovery.

I have a lived experience of my own mental health struggles as well as supporting colleagues, family and friends who have experienced mental health concerns. I am driven by a desire to ensure early intervention and support is available when people need it to enable them to recover, remain connected and live full and productive lives.

I have reinforced my lived experience with extensive studies in mental health practice and I work for two organisations in the community sector as a Mental Health Support Worker.

I am based in Canberra and able to deliver courses anywhere in Australia, in person or online. All travel is priced on a cost recovery basis. Please email me at info@phynixinitiative.com.au to discuss.


Here is what some participants from my courses have had to say:

"Just want to thank you for making the whole online thing interesting. I have worked with many train drivers that suffer from PTSD, I just wish I had the information at hand then that I now have. My current situation relates to a train driver that also happens to be a family member, the thing's I have learned from the study of the material and your presentation have been very helpful over the last week. I now feel confident that we are doing the right thing in the way we are approaching the situation with him." G.

"Tammie clearly understood and was passionate about mental health. The course was informative and well run. She was approachable and encouraged interaction. Very good." Anon

" I attended your Mental Health First Aid course 19/20 August. Thank you for your comprehensive and interactive delivery of the course, it was really informative." J.

"Just wanted to thank you for providing us with such comprehensive training over the last two days. I’ve taken a lot away from the course that I can apply directly to my work." D.

"Tammie was excellent, with a great voice. She spoke calmly, slowly, and was very easy to understand. She made me feel comfortable enough to answer several of her questions, and the workshop environment was friendly and responsive to her teaching style. If I ever want to look into future mental health training, I will be looking for her name." Anon.
