This organisation is being built on the foundation of a peer support model. Peer support is distinct from other forms of social support in that the source of support is a peer, a person who is similar in fundamental ways to the recipient of the support; their relationship is one of equality. A peer is in a position to offer support by virtue of relevant experience: he or she has “been there, done that” and can relate to others who are now in a similar situation.
It is the intent that all staff who become part of the team working for Phynix Initiative, have a lived experience of distress and overwhelm or caring for someone who is living it.
I am a mental health coach, instructor, international speaker, international best-selling co-author, mentor, and consultant.
I have a lived experience of:
anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts and
supporting a partner with multiple physical and mental health conditions
all the while holding down a full time job and raising three children.
In 2018 I left my career as an Australasian Award-winning Business Continuity Manager in the Australian Public Service to pursue my passion of helping people overcome distress and overwhelm and achieve their potential.
