Work History

I started work as a clerk while I was studying for my undergraduate degree. I then worked for a year with the Commonwealth Employment Service. After that I worked as a teacher in both the Catholic and public systems in both mainstream and special education.

In 1973 I started work as a TAFE counsellor in New South Wales and continued to work as a counsellor and Senior Counsellor until 1989 when I moved to Adelaide.

After a brief period working in the workers compensation area, I started in private practice in Adelaide and from 1992 in Mildura, Victoria.

During this time I have provided consultancy services to various national companies and governments in the area of trauma services and Employee Assistance Management.

I have continued to work in private practice and now work full time in Adelaide.
