As Managing Director of PESI AU, I bring almost 30 years of experience as a psychotherapist, supervisor, educator and business manager. My love of learning and education led me to open the Professional Development People (PDP) in 2011; an organisation committed to providing quality training opportunities to mental health professionals, regardless of their approach or expertise.
In 2021, my collaboration with PESI Inc in the USA resulted in the formation of a new company PESI AU Pty Ltd. This development has allowed us to offer a growing catalogue of presenters and training programs from around the world to better serve our professional community.
Working from our Sydney headquarters, my team and I maintain an accessible and personal style toward our community with programs and resources relevant to current needs and challenges in the professions we serve.
In my work as a Psychotherapist and as Managing Director, I remain committed to upholding a diverse workplace environment, and with my team feel proud to support respectful, equal opportunity in our dealings with others.
