These include the Australian Women’s Basketball Team and the Australian Women’s Cricket Team. She has also established and run a number of private practices.

Since ceasing her clinical work she has devoted her time to becoming an expert in the field of therapist/client communication. Annette’s aim is to build a team of like minded people that are passionate about language, communication and making a real difference to treatment outcomes for both the health professional and client.

Passions: Providing health professionals with the tools to make a difference with even the most unmotivated and challenging clients. Annette is inspired by those clinicians who want to refine the way they work with their clients and who’s aim is to enjoy the process of working with every client they see.

Personal Likes: Continuous learning, finding ways to keep an ageing and injured body mobile, photography, animals and spending time in nature with my partner. Annette also loves being able to make a difference to the lives of those not so fortunate through B1G1.
