For workers

For workers


Interested in “Who’s driving the bus?” training, delivered at your workplace? It’s an acceptance and commitment therapy technique aimed to acknowledge and work with all the factors that help and hinder change thoughts and behavior. I delivered this training at Frankston and Dandenong for SE Mental Health Primary Health Network for PIR support facilitators –  info flyer for SEMPHN

I provide

  • Outreach therapeutic and practical support for clients living in cluttered or hoarded homes. I work from within a harm minimization and  strength based model. My practice includes support to build the capacity of the person to improve and maintain their home and their recovery from mental ill-health
  • Training for workers to increase their confidence and capacity to support people affected by hoarding. This can be delivered in your workplace for multi-disciplinary teams or members of a network or via Skype.  Hoarding Workshop – 2017 04 05
  • Forum planning and facilitation – this year I’ve been involved with the Ballarat Hoarding and Squalor Forum 2017 and theForum 2017 (2)
  • For Council staff including HACC, EHO’s and Local Laws, here’s a summary of topics that can be included all-council-training

2. Secondary consultations for workers feeling stuck or overwhelming or just not sure what to do next. These can be face-to-face, or conference call or Skype. Or it may be a meeting with you and your client from which I write an assessment and recommendation report!

I have just been approved to be an NDIS provider! I am also a preferred provider with Partners in Recovery and am employed by Support for High Risk Tenancies across Victoria to work with public housing tenants facing eviction.


Need some information? Here’s a great list of hoarding resources.

The MFB (Metropolitian Fire Brigade) have developed an information kit, hoarding notification form and discontinuation form. Currently, these forms are for use by community organisations who have identified a significant risk in a home, no personal details of the residents are required. Melbourne only.
