About

“A dynamic duo who work seamlessly together, providing research and practical support whilst providing endless empathy and genuine care.”

I have over 25 years in education, research, and academia. Working within primary, secondary, tertiary, government, and business environments I am able to bridge the gap between research and practise. 

I love to study and use that information to improve the well-being of the individuals, families, and organisations I serve. 

“Amanda is a brilliant presenter! Her enthusiasm and infectious personality really helped our school get it!”
Amanda Hicks | Professional Development OZ | Specialist in Education, Psychology, & Wellbeing

With a background in community health, acute-care, private health-care, rehabilitation and academic settings, Rachel's specialist area of expertise is working with children and their families across a range of presentations including anxiety, low mood, emotion dysregulation, anger management, trauma, issues of attachment as well learning and behavioural difficulties.

“Rachel’s empathy and insight has helped us understand the importance of listening to our students.”

Our Approach | Professional Development OZ | Specialist in Education, Psychology, & Wellbeing
Our Approach

We have lectured to over 10,000+ educators, health professionals, families, and caseworkers over the past 8 years. Our approach is that lectures should not only provide research and evidence-based information but give real-life and practical strategies that can be used immediately. 

We believe that lectures should not have you grabbing a third or fourth coffee before the first break but be engaging, dynamic and dare I say enjoyable. 

I have been to so many PDs over my long career and non can compare to Amanda's phenomenal presentation.
