Hello, my name is Dr Alice Brown and I'm a Family and Educational Psychologist.
I empower parents and teachers to find practical solutions to challenging emotions and behaviour so that children, families and schools develop positive mental health and wellbeing through connection.
I help worried and overwhelmed parents who have tried to get help for their families but haven't found services that meet their needs.
I help stressed teachers and schools struggling with behaviour to develop a trauma-informed approach that promotes the mental health and wellbeing of the whole-school community.
I believe that families and schools shouldn't have to fight to get support. Services should be accessible, flexible and available when you need them.

I am the daughter of immigrants who dreamed of something better than the life they had back home. My parents' struggle to realise their dream gave me opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise had. I had access to a good education, parents with high aspirations for me and grew up in 'the land of opportunity' (AKA Australia).
This is what drives me to create opportunities for children who, for whatever reason, have barriers to their success.
“Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength”
I believe in supporting local community businesses.
I give back to the community by offering low cost training events for parents, teachers and professionals
I support the mental health charity MIND
I support the climate action charity Offset Earth
