About Melinda Phillips

I am an experienced teacher, psychologist and consultant dedicated to enabling teacher and school staff wellbeing.

Based on my psychology honours (Class 1) research into Australian school staff's experience of compassion fatigue following critical incidents; and subsequent organisational psychology Masters research into experiences of workplace burnout and engagement, I bring a deep knowledge of how schools operate and combine this with an Australian evidence-based approach to supporting school staff and schools as an integrated community.
