MEET THE TEAM: NOEL AND DEBORAH WALKER
I am psychologist with over 20 years experience in helping people, families and organisations be well. I am passionate about positive psychology, what we know about creating wellness, the ability to flourish, how to recover from trauma, depression, anxiety, pain and creating wellness in workplaces. I believe in the power of relationships to cause hurt and to heal.
I believe it is important to walk the talk, so I am proud of my 30-year relationship with my husband Noel. I try hard to flourish in my everyday life and challenge myself in my other passion that is horses. I started learning to ride in my late 30s and am now learning to show jump in my mid 50s. My belief is it is never to late. In my childhood I lived in Kenya and the West Indies and have ridden horses in Kenya and Botswana (among-st other countries) and can honestly say galloping with herds of giraffe and buffalo, riding close to Lions and elephants as well as galloping away from a herd of charging female elephants has taught me what it is to be truly alive.
I have practiced psychology in Australia for 25 years and helped many individuals overcome the many personal challenges that we all face in Life. I began my career as a Psychologist helping people overcome addictions.
The work I have done over the past few years has mainly been focused on my specialty of helping people with Depression and/or Anxiety and those affected by Trauma.
I have undergone extensive training in the past few years to ensure he is up to date with the latest research on helping people with Depression and Anxiety and the various after effects of Trauma. I have a particular interest in helping couples navigate difficult times in their relationship and along with his training in couples’s work he draws on personal experience from his 30-year relationship with my wife and partner Deborah who is also a psychologist. I have a strong sporting background and in the past decade I discovered a passion and joy to travel overseas on horse-riding safaris where I galloped with giraffe and buffalo and been within metres of a bull elephant.
