caring for Carers


I believe carers deserve to feel supported and valued, and not feel that they have to compromise their own wellbeing to carry out their role. 

My wish for you, as a carer, is to experience support and peace of mind, knowing that there is a time and space for you to offload the burdens you carry and recharge. 

Our work together provides you with practical strategies and emotional support to help you better manage the unique challenges and stresses that come with being a carer, so that you can approach your caregiving duties with renewed energy and resilience.

The prevalence of high psychological stress in primary carers of people with disability is almost three times higher than that of the general population.


Carer support has been a major focus of my professional life. As a speech pathologist specialising in stroke recovery, I have assisted many caregivers. I’ve trained and worked with volunteer carers in various settings and am currently providing coaching for disability support workers.

I was involved in the design and implementation of one-day workshops called Caring for Carers, held in various Melbourne hospitals for nursing staff.

In addition, I was involved in co-designing and facilitating the “Fill Up Your Tank” workshops.
