Hi. I’m Heidi Nemme, psychologist and founder of the one-woman-show at Shift Consulting.

In my 30 years of work, I’ve had the honour to work with an array of incredible people and organizations. Along the way, I’ve developed an understanding of the people challenges faced by businesses. And there are many.

Being somewhat of an idealist and eternal optimist who questions assumptions to find finding practical proactive solutions, I became unwilling to accept that “people will always be hard work”. And so I founded Shift Consulting in 2017 to put my creativity, psychological skills, and people superpowers to good use.

I wear a number of hats – I am a workplace psychologist, EAP Counsellor, trainer, facilitator, and coach specializing in wellbeing and resilience, conflict management, leadership, and behaviour change. My passion lies in helping people shift mindsets to fulfill their potential to become their best selves at work.

My experience working in a variety of workplace industries and settings means that I am able to connect with a diverse range of participants to facilitate a powerful learning experience.

Having recently relocated to Far North Queensland, my goal is to share knowledge and information about Mental Health with regional and rural Australia, areas that can sometimes miss out.

If you are an organisation wishing to run a course for 6 or more participants, and the workshop dates listed are not suitable, please contact me directly for more date options. Remember to ask about group discounts!

Additional Information


If you were faced with someone who is in the midst of a mental health crisis or experiencing an emerging mental illness, would you know what to do?

I usually run my MHFA programmes in-house and can accommodate up to 16 participants. This is a 12-hour course which is usually delivered as either a 2-day training package (6 hours per day), or as 4 separate modules (3 hours each).

P.S. I LOVE travelling to other parts of Australia, and am more than willing to travel to conduct training.

Please contact me to discuss your upcoming MHFA training needs.
