Counsellor & Coach

  • Sherene has a special interest in healing and resilience. To quote the Resilience Research Institute, helping people navigate to and negotiate for psychological and physical resources to sustain their wellbeing and for those resources to be provided in culturally meaningful ways. Healing stories are described in her book - In Balance: Workbook on Resilience & Wellbeing.

Consultant
