School & Teacher Courses
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 first break but be engaging, dynamic and dare I say enjoyable.
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 wellbeing of the individuals, families and organisations I serve.
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.
PD Service Options
We have many options available for schools and individuals to undertake
I have been to so many PDs over my long career and non can compare to Amanda's phenomenal presentation.
