FACE COVID – How To Respond Effectively To The Corona Crisis

Covid 19

The current Coronavirus situation is very unsettling and distressing  for a lot of people.  None of us has seen the world change so much in such a very short period of time, and it can be very scary. There is so much uncertainty,  people losing their jobs, financial stress, being isolated from friends and family, fearful of getting sick, worried about loved ones.  Its a lot to deal with and therefore it is really important to look after your physical and mental health and to support those around you.  We need to all help each other to get through this.

I have posted this video that Russ Harris and kindly put together that provides some quick strategies that can help with coping with the Corona virus.

Be Inspired Group’s Response to Covid 19

  • We are now providing services via telehealth (online video platform) or phone to ensure we can still help those that are in isolation or vulnerable.
  • Due to recent government changes we can provide bulk billing telehealth services to clients referred through Medicare Mental Health Care Plans and DVA. 
  • We are still providing some home visit services for those still requiring supports, where telehealth is not appropriate.  We will be maintaining strict hygiene, hand washing and distancing rules whilst on home visits to minimise any risks. 
  • Please note:
    •  If you have recently come back from overseas or interstate or that you have been around people suspected of having Covid 19 or have flu like symptoms, that you please advise us immediately.
    • If we have any symptoms or have had contact with someone with Covid 19, we will also need to go into isolation.  If this happens we will advise all our clients and will suspend home visits whilst in isolation or sick.
  • Be Inspired Group also aims to provide tips and information on our website and Facebook page to help people to manage during this time.
  • We wish you all well, take care, look after each other and if we can be of any help please let us know.

I have been working as an Occupational Therapist for over 20 years.  My experience is predominently in the areas of chronic disease management and adult mental health.  I have a particular interest in pain management, anxiety and depression.  Please refer to above page links to find out more about the different services we can offer.  Please note our services can now be offered via telehealth as well.
Check out the ‘About Us’ page to find out more about Be Inspired Group.  


I offer a very individualised and personal service, you are not a number to me, I genuinely want to help you to achieve the life you want.  I am passionate about this work because helping people to improve their lives is very rewarding.  I am a genuine, honest and caring person and it is important for me to work in a way that aligns with my values.   

I offer longer appointments so that there is time for me to really understand your situation and what is important to you.  I also don’t see too many clients each day as I want to be truly present and there for you, and I don’t feel I can do that if I am seeing 8 people in a day and rushing.   I promise to give you my best to help you become your best.  

Feel free to call me if you have any questions and to see if I might be the right fit for you.
