Jeanette Lloyd

I am a Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience as counsellor and therapist, specialising in mental health with a strong focus on building resilience and promoting wellbeing. Whilst I have practiced in both the Government and Non-Government sectors, the majority of my experience has been with the Commonwealth Public Service as a Defence Social Worker and Rural Social Worker. 

During my role as a Rural Social Worker I gained a comprehensive understanding of the problems faced by rural people during the drought and provided assessments and counselling to individuals and families with a range of complex psychosocial problems.
