About Patricia



Wisdom, Wellbeing, Writer

Patricia combines her skills and training in the Arts and Health Industries to formulate programs that make a difference to the quality of the relationships with have with others and to optimise the most vital relationship we have with ourselves.


Mentor | Advocacy

Patricia’s natural curiosity and concern about what makes people behave the way they do led her to formalise her studies and training in human behaviour, counselling, community services, wellbeing, personal empowerment, leadership, anthroposophy, drama teaching, acting, writing, directing and disability support.

A deep investigation of her inner life informed her passion to pay it forward and inspire others to meet the challenges of their own life. Her skills set and insights are continually being upgraded and regenerated to sustain her mentorship programs, advocacy and work in human services.

In her unique and playful way, Patricia provides pathways to restore hope and trust; renew enthusiasm and build resilience through personalised programs that are designed to promote intentional change and empower people to empower themselves.

Consultations are available for groups and individuals in person, via phone or the internet.


Human Resource Consultancy

Passionate about making a difference, Patricia encourages her participants to open up and make the most of the unlimited creative resources that are readily available.

Her facilitation style is steeped in a wealth of industry knowledge, skill and intuition. A blossoming of confidence is assured through the artful implementation of proven techniques, tricks-of-the-trade and her instinctive approach that delivers workable solutions to all manner of inner conflict, pain and misunderstanding.

Patricia is a natural trouble-shooter and is accustomed to working across all levels of management and personnel to refine workplace dynamics and nurture organisational connectedness. Her workplace wellness packages are sought after and recognised for their innate capacity to reach the heart of the matter and deliver lasting results.

Workplace packages are custom designed and can include one-on-one facilitation, team building games to promote group cohesion and connection, mediation, regular group meditation, creative play and exercises to identify and encourage personal strengths, challenges, obstacles and opportunities.
