Speaking

Hi. I’m a nationally registered Clinical Psychologist with a research background in Behavioural Neuroscience and Positive Psychology from The University of Melbourne. My expertise lies in the delivery of tailored wellbeing talks, workshops and content that is relaxed, relevant, and research-based.  

I have delivered talks for all kinds of audiences from exec boards, to athletes, accountants, lawyers and health professionals, to teachers, activists and musicians. Every session, although tailored to a specific audience, has essentially the same aim to help you understand how your inner wellbeing is the key to happiness and success in your outer world. I achieve this through sharing personal stories, science-based knowledge and practices, and by having some laughs along the way. We retain more, are less defensive and are more receptive to new information when we are happy and relaxed    so joy, laughter and connection are not a bonus, they are the key.

I have had the privilege of working with some brilliant organisations dedicated to improving the wellbeing of their people and community, including collaborating with ANZ and Deloitte on their organisation’s mindfulness strategies and roll out, as well as partnering with the legends at Medibank to help all Australians eat, move and feel better as part of their Live Better At Home initiative. 

Check out the Deloitte Meditation Series here.

In 2019 I pivoted to use my knowledge of human behaviour and behavioural neuroscience to help people transition through the current worldwide narrative of environmental denial, grief and despair into centered states of motivated action for our earth.

Great. So now we have those formalities out of the way, I can tell you straight up that I just really enjoy talking to people. I think it comes from years spent at the family dinner table, youngest child, trying to get a word in.
The more people in a room, the better. The more sceptical a person, the better the moment the penny drops and they become the biggest supporter in the room. There are few things more meaningful to me than the feeling of a present room of people connecting over shared ideas. It leaves me joyous and on high. I’d do it even if you didn’t pay me, but I’d probably prefer that you did.

You can feel my joy firsthand by booking a talk, workshop or initial chat via the link below. If you’re not sure what your organisation needs just yet but think it would be handy to have a chat to try to work it out, then also feel free to get in touch.

The little girl inside is finally getting a chance to speak… hallelujah!
