JANELLE TOLLEY

She/Her/Hers

  • DIRECTOR

  • ACCREDITED MENTAL HEALTH SOCIAL WORKER

  • GROUP WORK FACILITATOR

I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker (AMHSW) and member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW). Medicare provider number 6500271K.

I completed my Bachelor of Social Work at the University of NSW, followed by a Master of Social Work at Monash University. I recently graduated with a Graduate Certificate in Managing Youth Self-Harm and Suicide with the University of Melbourne and am currently undertaking a Graduate Certificate in Autism with the University of Wollongong.

I have been blessed with a career that has been both diverse, and rewarding, and have worked in the health, education, disability and community sectors, and most recently as a School Counsellor in a P-12 setting.

I enjoy working therapeutically, using strengths-based approaches, and feel privileged to journey alongside those I work with, as they grow their emotional and psychological health and well-being.

I have a strong interest in groupwork, and value the power of both peer support and lived experience. I am proud of my accomplishment of developing the SHARE (Sharing Hope, Acceptance, Resilience, and Experience) program when working at the Agency for Clinical Innovation, with the program winning the NSW Health Volunteer Service of the Year Award in 2012. I enjoy facilitating the in-house program "Teen Grow" (Teen - Growing Resilience, Opportunity, and Wellbeing). I am a Certified Facilitator of Lego® -Based Therapy, and a trained facilitator in several more programs including Resourceful Adolescent Program (Adolescent and Parent), Sibworks, Seasons for Growth, and Tuning into Teens.

I am also proud to be associated with the RAISE youth mentoring program, volunteering in 2023 as a mentor at a local high school.
