Policing and Front line specialist trainer. I successfully survived as a police officer for over 40 years, leaving well, happy and healthy. Would you like to know how I did it? Until I applied for voluntary severance (as it was the perfect time for me) I was until 2018 a Sergeant with the West Australia Police with 40+ years of service. I hold the Diploma in Public Safety (Policing) as well as the Certificate IV (Training) , manager and principal MHFA trainer at the Joondalup Police Academy. I owe so much of my understanding, appreciation and development in this field to my wife, Dr Jan , a practicing clinical psychologist, and my mentor.

In addition to MHFA, I also deliver 'Effective Communications' and Coaching courses to senior police personal and 'Ethics' sessions to our Police Staff members.

I am passionate in the belief and value of MHFA.
