Amanda has been a relationship counsellor and clinical supervisor for more than 15 years. She is the current Vice-President of the Marriage and Relationship Educators of Australia. Amanda has an education background in Health Sciences and Ethics and Masters Degrees in Counselling and Forensic Sexology.
She has spent the past 15 years working in universities and studying relationships, grief and loss and evidence-based practice and more recently co-authored a textbook on evidence-based practice.
Amanda has a passion for all things relationships and shares this passion through talks, workshops and her books. She loves to understand why relationships work and how to positively build and improve them. She regularly spends short intensive days with her clients to build on their relationship foundations and teach them the skills of communicating effectively as an emotionally-connected couple.
When Amanda isn’t at work, you’ll find her hanging out with her three favourite men: her husband and two young boys. She loves geeking out and reading about relationships, watching Say Yes to the Dress and actually spending time cuddling and connecting with hubby – regardless if it’s over a picnic, scuba diving together or exploring new places. Amanda practices what she preaches and works daily to stay more-often-than-not happily married.
