Everyone has suffered some sort of trauma or stress in our lives; no one is immune from this.
Childhood trauma can have a significant impact on the health and well-being of children right through to adulthood.
My passion is to support children in need by providing understanding and education to people working with, caring for and creating policies that affect the lives of children. As well as this, I strongly believe that children need a champion and an advocate.
I am the founder and chairman of Sancss Australia Ltd, a non for profit charity that supports disadvantaged children in Australia and other countries.
I have been working in the area of families and children in both government and non government agencies for over 20 years covering areas of Mental Health, Juvenile Justice, Family Relationships, Parent Teen Conflict, Child Protection, Substance Use, Out of Home Care, Trauma and attachment and the list goes on.
As well as supporting others I make it a personal habit to look after my own mental health, that’s where Scuba Diving comes in.
Everyone needs a good healthy hobby.
Understanding the effects of trauma on health and development lead to better outcomes for children and adults alike.
Conflict is natural and dealt with properly is a great growth tool.
We all make thousands of choices every day, the power of these choices ultimately define us.
