Emma, your presentation was incredibly powerful and the girls were very moved by your strength, resilience and your wonderful sense of humour. Scott Pannam

Yr 12 Strathcona, BGGS Coordinator

Emma had us (me) laughing one moment and trying to hold back the tears the next…She is inspiring on so many levels. Genevieve Cooper

Manager, St Vincent's Hospital

Emma’s honest, raw and often humorous depiction of her journey was both engaging and compelling, and challenged us all to re evaluate our attitudes and practices as allied health practitioners. She reminded us to see the patient as a real person, to empathise with their loss of roles and lifestyle, whilst simultaneously giving hope to patient and working with them to regain their valued roles in some form.

She also reminded us of the importance of partnering with patients in achieving their goals, and the need to have empathy and foster relationship between patient and therapist.

I would recommend this presentation to all health professionals as it certainly challenged and inspired me to strive towards making client centred practice the most important aspect of my practice, as sadly this is often overlooked and forgotten.
