Speaker, Psychologist, Facilitator for
Farmer Mental Health:
Empowering rural Australia to  thrive 

Farming life is full of uncertainty and unpredictability, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. 

When we learn to relate differently to the uncomfortable thoughts and feelings that show up day to day, we create space to choose to take action based on what's truly important to us.

As a farmer, farm wife and mum, I know first-hand just how challenging it can be to navigate the juggle of farm, family and life. 

I also know just how beneficial it can be for my family, my farm, our business - and most importantly ME - when I take the time to prioritise and care for my own wellbeing.

Let's work together to improve farmer mental health and wellbeing

Psychological Flexibility Training

Providing accessible mental health skills to rural Australia 

Psychological Flexibility skills can be accessible and usable by everyone. When we begin to strengthen our skills in Psychological Flexibility (in a nutshell - being able to be present in this moment right now, and adapt to challenging situations, choosing to take valued action) we  improve our wellbeing, strengthen our mental health, increase our ability to manage stress, and improve our relationships. 

I would love to chat with you today about how I can help you.

Keynote Speaker - Rural Mental Health

More than just "ticking the box" for mental health awareness, I absolutely love attending events and sharing my personal mental health journey. 

If you are looking for an raw, authentic and engaging speaker - who brings the reality of farming life and the mental health juggle into the picture - I'm here!

As a farmer, psychologist, farm wife and mum - I've learned just how important it is to put into practice strategies to support my wellbeing. And, if I'm honest, I've learned (and continue to learn) the hard way, that we are all human and even with the best intentions the road can get rocky at times.

As a speaker I share my own experience with my heart wide open. 

Topics I cover:

  • It's the AND - highlighting the struggle AND the joys of farming and farmer mental health
  • Change The Picture - how we can redefine farmer mental health
  • Surrender & Embrace - my journey from a city girl to life on the land, navigating farm life, motherhood and me.

When we share our stories we learn together.
