Darleen Barton

Resilient children and young people are better able to cope with life's challenges and knock-backs, and are less likely to experience mental health problems in the future. Be You promotes mental health and wellbeing, from the early years to 18, and offers educators and learning communities evidence-based professional learning, complemented by a range of tools and resources to turn learning into action. Untreated anxiety and depression cost Australian businesses $10.9 billion every year in lost productivity and compensation claims. Creating a mentally healthy workplace where everyone feels supported has huge benefits for employers – it’s better for your business, your people, and your bottom line. I have successfully worked with hundreds of individuals, couples and families over the years, tailoring therapeutic strategies, goal-focused planning and coping mechanisms to address trauma, anxiety, sobriety and weight challenges, and am adept at delivering solution focused sessions focused on mediation, grief or anxiety, relationship and emotional management. I have a proven history of being able to identify client needs and to train, counsel and advise clients who are in challenging and complex personal or professional situations and refocusing them on goals, actions and outcomes. My communication and interpersonal skills allow me to build a strong rapport with clients and business owners at all levels and from a range of backgrounds. I have received consistently positive feedback from my clients due to my personal approach, ability to listen and empathize, diverse and capable skill set, willingness to go above and beyond for my clients, and my ability to achieve tangible results.
