Delivering the how’s and why’s of living, working and parenting well with easy-to-apply guidance that inspires audiences to thrive.

Contact Me About Speaking


I am often invited to give talks and offer workshops to organisations, schools and social-care/health settings.

I love to translate complex constructs and research findings from psychology, brain-science and child development into accessible, down-to-earth and easily applied concepts and strategies for parents, teachers, educators, business leaders and anyone with an interest in embodying the art and science of well-being and thriving in their lives.

And I love to equip my audience both with easy-to-use, in-the-moment strategies that they can apply immediately and with an understanding of the why behind the strategies, as we know from research that when we know the why, it will make the change easier to apply!

I love speaking to audiences - big and small - delivering my message from the heart, with levity and the odd anecdote drawn from my clinical experience and research background as well as from my experience as a parent (and a human being).  

I invite participant interaction during my sessions, creating a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere, which we know from brain-science is the best way to learn.
