Tom is a beautiful proud Warramunga Man from the Wiradjuri Nation. He is a son, brother, husband and friend but touches so many more people every day as he shares his knowledge and stories through his work as the founder of Red Dust Healing. Today we are blessed to learn so much from this very wise man of very few words in our latest Conversation on the Couch.
Vanessa Eylward engages us with her insight and wisdom of valuable life lessons from a life well and truly lived, and from her latest life experience, living with breast cancer, for our latest Conversation on the Couch. This is laugh-out-loud funny and poignant all at the same time.

Earlier this year, six-year-old Scarlett (she's 7 now!) wrote to us at The Psychology of It asking a very important question - "Why do people live if they're only going to die?" We answered Scarlett in an open letter. So impressed by the curiosity and intelligence of this young lady, we thought it only fitting to invite her over for a cup of tea and what turned out to be a very special Conversation on the Couch. You can see it here.

In early September, 2016, we discovered by chance a Facebook post by Christopher Sewell describing in raw detail, his first-hand struggle living with anxiety and depression. Christopher is a husband and a father and a surfer and a mate who is not defined by his disorders. Instead, he is brave and generous and shares this incredible insight into his experiences.

Melissa Reeser Poulin is a poet and prose writer with a passion for cultivating creativity in the lives of busy people, especially parents. In her own pursuit of creative fulfillment while raising an active 16-month-old, she has come to embrace shortcuts of all kinds-- including 20 minute workouts and cooking with Trader Joe's. She is an overly ambitious reader with far too many books on her bedside table. 


Sandra Bucci is of Swiss-Italian heritage and a Novacastrian now residing in Manchester, U.K., with her husband and two beautiful children. She is a Dr of Clinical Psychology and an academic at The University of Manchester; her academic interests lie in understanding the development and maintenance of psychotic experiences such as hearing voices and having unusual beliefs. She is motivated to develop novel ways to help people have better access to mental health support and intervention. Sandra is a world citizen who has travelled extensively. She is a former competitive aerobics champion, tennis player and doesn't particularly like being in a field of cows (one might go so far as to say she has a bovine phobia!).
