workshops & events
I am an experienced Secondary teacher, also having 2 years experience in a leadership role teaching Positive Psychology at a tough Western Sydney High School. More recently I have become a qualified Yoga teacher and Holistic Health Coach. My teaching career has highlighted the the importance of supporting students to build resilience and their capacity to develop a growth mindset, so that their experience of high school is maximised and sets them up for their best life outside of school. I see school as an intervention site for issues like stress and mental health challenges.
Building our students’ capacity to become self regulating and emotionally intelligent young adults is paramount. I fundamentally believe that our youth need help navigating the inner workings of their minds, habits and beliefs about themselves so that they can approach their education and life with mindfulness and awareness. This support will help to cultivate sustainable living habits and self empowerment. I believe that a holistic approach to education is the key to cultivating optimal health and wellness in our youth, so that they become lifelong learners, self-study through reflection and become functioning global citizens that our 21st Century world needs.
This said, I offer my expertise and practical strategies in stress management, mindfulness, health and wellness tips for a sharper mind, improved self-concept and positive relationships. I have outlined two available options:
