Experience within the mining and construction industry, post-graduate studies in mental health counselling
Tracey is passionate about facilitating mental health awareness training and support in the resources sector. Her background includes secondary teaching, and several years’ experience within the mining and construction industry. Working in the resources sector, Tracey gained insights into the specific demands and issues facing this workforce and observed a wide variety of mental health issues. With recent post-graduate studies in mental health counselling, she would like to utilise her developing skills to lead and promote positive change and mental wellbeing in this sector.
Tracey became acutely aware of the need in this area, when, 5 years ago, she began a company which offers mindfulness and meditative training to the resources sector with the aim of reducing stress and promoting wellbeing. Her motivation comes from involvement and caring about her past colleagues and others in the sector, and the desire to utilise her background, skills and personal qualities to assist positive wellbeing.
