Psychologist and Trainer with over fifteen years experience
Leanne aims to empower women to thrive, giving them access to freedom, choice, joy, balance, success, and inner strength.
I am delighted that you have decided to focus on pushing through your own obstacles to create the life and work you want.
I have worked in the corporate world, in clinical settings, and extensively in my own business. My first career was in information technology, where I progressed to program development and management. Then in my twenties I found myself more interested in talking to people about their problems (usually at the pub at lunch!) than in doing my work. So, after much contemplation, I decided to drop everything I knew in my life and go to university to become a Psychologist.
For the last seventeen years I have managed mental health teams, implemented state-wide innovations in mental health, created a busy private practice, conducted research and evaluations, and developed and managed suicide prevention programs. My experience in the field of psychology is vast and varied.
I am also a survivor of frequent childhood injuries and illnesses, domestic violence, childhood sexual assault, workplace bullying, and financial hardship. Overcoming challenges has become second nature to me – from scraping tomato sauce off the floor as a kid to re-use it because we had no money to replace it, or moving to the USA for eight months with my children a few years ago. I have learned both in my private life and professionally what it takes to manage competing demands and push through adversity.
I am a property investor, a business owner, and a passionate advocate for the rights of women. I am a single-parent with two beautiful young children that I blend with my career – there are times when it is a challenging mix!
And I love to travel! I have been to more than 15 countries so far and I continue to build that list now with my children. You will no doubt see some of my travel photos as you get to know me better.
I look forward to being able to help you make a habit out of overcoming adversity and support you to create the life and business / career that you have always wanted.
