Psychosocial Recovery Coaching

In this one day workshop, we will explore what it takes to be an exceptional Psychosocial Recovery Coach.

Psychosocial Recovery Coaching (PRC) combines the principles of recovery-oriented practice with life coaching and is focused on building meaning in people’s lives and uncovering resourcefulness and resilience.

Recovery Coaches can be game changers, promoting the belief that people are the natural experts in their own lives and have the resources within to move beyond their diagnosis and reconnect with their capabilities and strengths.

In this one day workshop, we will explore what it takes to be a great PRC, including:

  • Recovery Coaching: Roles & Responsibilities

  • Coaching Principles & Practice Frameworks

  • Supporting people through crisis

  • The division of responsibilities between Mental Health & NDIS

  • Tools & Resources


Vanessa Robinson

Vanessa has extensive disability leadership experience including roles at the NDIA as Director Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) and Director Mainstream Interface and Practice Frameworks. Vanessa managed stakeholder relationships across all levels of government, non-government and community sectors and has a firm grip on the complexity of the NDIS approach to ECEI and the many grey issues at the intersection of the health system and NDIS. Vanessa is a highly skilled and committed operator in disability leadership, service delivery, strategic thinking and policy development.

Suzy Berry

Suzy has a keen eye for technical detail and spotting NDIS market trends and opportunities. Driven by a personal commitment to the sector and her own journey of self-advocacy in accessing health services, Suzy has held influential roles in the NDIS since the launch of the trial sites. She’s the former NDIA Scheme Implementation Executive for Queensland and more recently held senior management roles in Australia’s largest providers of plan management and mental health supports in regional areas. She was also a member of the Mental Health Australia’s expert panel on Optimising Psychosocial Supports for NDIS, an important publication that contributed to recovery coaching making its way into the 2020-21 NDIS Price Guide. But it’s not all work, Suzy is the proud ‘Mother of Danes’, well one Great Dane to be precise, Steve, and spends time (and money) renovating her Queenslander.
