THINK EFFECTIVE CONSULTANCY          can help you create…

A Culture of Wellbeing or An Improved Approach To Mental Health & Wellbeing in your School That Considers All That Goes on For a Student

I work with schools & passionate educators like you who want to improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes for your students and school.

You might be tired of seeing effective programmes being implemented for SEL but nothing truly changing regarding the culture within the school.  

You might have an approach to behaviour but it is not effectively aligned with mental health and wellbeing or perhaps you’re stuck and don’t know where to go next in order to improve mental health and wellbeing outcomes for your students.

The problem is you don’t know where to start, how to create ongoing momentum or how to bring key people together.  You have a vision or desire to make change happen in your school but need to steps to take in order to be successful.

Think Effective Consultancy can provide you with a proven approach for improving mental health in your school and will help you work towards creating a Culture of Wellbeing that incorporates both mental health and behaviour.

WHY Do You Need a Consistent & Planned Approach to Mental Health & Wellbeing in Schools?


Because this is about setting our youth up for life!

We don’t want to keep watching our students fall through the cracks.  We want to start making a difference and changing the statistics!

It is about creating a culture of wellbeing in our schools rather than just implementing a programme.

It is about adopting a process that is done effectively and sustainably and gets MAXIMUM buy-in from staff, students and parents.

It is about using consistent language and approaches across classrooms to ensure that we make a difference in every child’s life!

I have spent extensive working within schools to develop and implement mental health and behaviour initiatives in order to create a Culture of Wellbeing.  This is not just about implementing an SEL programme.  While these are a valuable part of the picture there is so much more to be considered when trying to create a positive school culture.  I have developed processes that are both effective and sustainable and can help you achieve success when implementing change.  I want you to benefit from the lessons I have learnt through my experiences, successes and sometimes failures.  I want to help schools create positive learning environments that have a proactive and supportive approach to mental health.

In addition to that I:

  • Am an Ambassador for the Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association
  • Have worked in Education for over 20 years with leadership roles in mental health and wellbeing & student behaviour
  • I was one of 3 finalists in the 2019 WA Premier’s Teacher of the Year Awards
  • I was one of 3 finalists in the Regional Achievement & Community Awards For Teaching Excellence
  • Have presented at a variety of Mental Health Conferences across Australia including the Rural & Regional Mental Health Symposium & the Mental Health Services Conference.
  • I have helped many schools across Western Australia implement Mental Health and Behaviour iniatives effectively
  • I have worked with the Mental Health Commission,Local Govt and Community Action Team to create a Community  Improvement Plans for mental health.

I am passionate about the difference we can make in the space of mental health.  I want to help you have the success I have achieved so that you can start making a real difference to your students too!

I have found Renee to be highly inspiring both personally and to those working with her.  Renee has woven best practice mental health strategies into the schoolwide Behaviour Management Policy that is unprecedented in my experience of working across schools in the South West of WA.  Renee has supported the staff to follow her lead to ensure mental health care for all students is at the forefront of staff planning and classroom behaviour management, thereby enabling students to achieve much better overall outcomes.
