About this website

I end all my seminars with this quote,

“You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of your choice”

choice and consequencesIt is often easier to make tough decisions with and for our children when we think about the type of adult they will become. As parents it is our responsibility to guide our young people toward healthy life choices.

While developing a strong sense of self, in an increasingly individualistic world it is imperative that we guide our children toward choices that develop into an equally strong sense of social justice. Changes starts with us, in our own hearts, homes and schools and it is imperative that kids and teens are taught to look outward, at the impact that their choices have on those around them.


About Collett

As a registered psychologist and qualified school teacher I have spent the last 20+ years of my career in both private and public schools, as well as working as a consultant psychologist in private practice and at a Sydney university. I have worked with children, teens and their parents around Australia, inner city London in the UK, and in Africa. (full bio here)

Although there is no cookie cutter approach to parenting, there are tried, tested and researched guidelines that I have experienced as being effective for many families.

My aim is to bring both the research and practical experience of counsellors, academics, nutritionists, specialists, teachers and youth liaison officers, who work with teenagers every week. I endeavour to bring you their sound advice, so that together we can raise this generation of world changers.
