Dr Julie Rowse
(Bach. O.T. (Hons); PhD)
I am passionate about helping people achieve positive mental health so that they can lead rich and fulfilling lives.
I use relatable stories, metaphors and examples to help leaders understand their own mental health and how to achieve optimal mental fitness for them to perform at their best. As a qualified mental health occupational therapist, speaker, coach and now author, I work with businesses, organisations, schools and community groups to develop and implement positive mental health programs and behaviours that stick and are sustainable.
I completed my PhD in 2011, and started Healthy Mind and Soul Pty Ltd in 2016. I’ve worked in public and private settings for over two decades and bring a wealth of knowledge and practice wisdom to the work that I do.
I love to share my knowledge to empower others and have presented at a variety of mental health conferences nationally here in Australia and around the world in Canada, the United States, Britain and New Zealand.
I live in regional Victoria, Australia. I value my own mental health and often go bush walking or to the day spa to help me to de-stress.
I believe it is through our leaders that we can improve the mental health and wellbeing of everyone in our world.
