It has been a privileged journey to see my vision of a better future come to fruition. I believe that mental health could be made more accessible. Innovation in mental health treatment is the way of the future. But the barriers come from within. Working in conservative models of healthcare prevents discoveries being shared, and stigma prevents the best of mental health being promoted to those that need it. My business provides in excess of 24,000 appointments per year and supports more than 60 careers in psychology.
I am the Director, Founder and Owner of Vision Psychology at Mt Gravatt and M1 Psychology at Loganholme.
I had a vision to attract the best minds to work together to provide services and that dream has seen us develop the largest one stop shop for psychology services. I gained my registration as a psychologist in 2008 which seems a long time ago. Over the years I have been involved in managing and supervising NHMRC projects at Griffith University, published in international journals and more recently I’ve completed my postgrad certificate at UQ in the Business School.
My passion for business and innovation has led me to be at odds with conservative healthcare models. Times are changing and now we need to move to more flexible workplaces and healthcare delivery. No longer is the long term business the best business. Technology and innovation means google is seen to be a good place to find health information, most people looking online before seeing a health practitioner. I believe we need to embrace our future, find new ways and help our community, our country, the world. Australian’s have a lot to offer in a world that is mostly online.
