    Connection and wellbeing in education

    A very honest conversation with Rachael from Let's Grow - a private practitioner as well as a servicing a wellbeing role at a primary school in Melbourne.

    We discuss Rachael's challenges in the classroom

    Lacking inspiration as students

    How we hope to see wellbeing and self commitment becoming more mainstream

    As well as actionable steps to help take accountability of our own mental health day to day.



    Rachael is no nonsense, yet supportive and compassionate.

    A great conversation to get me back into the season after an unexpected hiatus.

    Sing with Emma Boult

    Sing with Emma Boult

    Emma and I met in 2013 when we taught at a school together.

    Emma was working part time as a Drama/English teacher while teaching singing outside of the traditional classroom.

    I have continued to follow along with her journey on socials and was thrilled to see she opened up her own vocal studios in 2021.

    We discuss the shift of the music industry since the introduction of streaming services.

    Why she is happier in a coaching role rather than pursuing her own stardom.

    The importance of following what makes you happy, even if others are concerned for you and so much more.

    Have you ever met someone that you have felt so completely aligns with your beliefs that the conversation is effortless?

    That is what I feel while I have this conversation.



    Kirsten Cobabe is literally a teen whisperer. 

    She works with families to support their teen in being heard, held, supported and truly understood.

    We discuss how she came up with the idea of shifting the paradigm regarding educating and raising our children.

    What she believes is a deeply empowering space for her.

    What education could look like as well as so much more.



    Also - we recorded a live together discussing how to be the 'spark' in the system. Click here to listen.



    This feels idealistic and hopeful - but we are primed for change post pandemic. Let's dream big!
