Michael B

People we collaborate with

Dianne Halliday

I hold a Bachelor of Social Work (first class honours); Professional Practice Certificate in Individual and Couple Therapy; Graduate Certificate in Public Health Research and Evaluation; Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and most recently a Professional Practice Certificate in Mental Health for Older People.

Prior to becoming a social worker, I was a small business owner in an arts-based industry from which I bring a myriad of learnings not least of which is the value of developing and maintaining good customer relationships.

Partnership and collaboration have been the mainstays of my social work practice whether that is at an organisational level or with clients and their broader family and social networks.

I have extensive experience in project management and research-based change management processes. This knowledge and experience ensures that I undertake change management processes collaboratively, based on best practice research and situated within the philosophical and operational framework of the organisation.  

I have managed services and projects and I believe that strong leadership depends on being a part of a team and valuing everyone’s contribution and input.

I have experience in developing and delivering training tailored to individual needs as well as in delivering accredited training packages. Successful outcomes are achieved through making sure the product fits the audience, that it is relevant to their learning needs and that it engages them in active learning through the sharing of personal experience.

I am a registered trainer in Mental Health First Aid for Older People.

Although in recent years I have been mainly focussed on providing care for older people, as a social worker and counsellor I have worked across all age and socio-economic cohorts of people.

My practice framework is always client centred and this guiding principle ensures that I listen effectively and act ethically to meet client and organisational needs.

Katrina May

I have over 25 years experience in the aged care industry, the last 5 years as an Enrolled Nurse prior to that as a carer.

I have experience in assessing continence needs and skin integrity in relation to continence and suitable products to manage these needs.

I have a passion for Dementia care and improving the quality of care and the way it is approached. I use a person centred approached when working with clients to achieve the best outcomes for them whilst ensuring dignity and respect. I believe teamwork, support and collaboration are important for achieving these goals.

“Katrina really does change lives for the better. She works towards best practice Dementia Care and has had some great results leading to happier people in her care”
