Stress Management & Resilience
The Equan Story Where Equilibrium Meets Equanimity
The underlying vision for Equan is to work with individuals and teams to create a sense of balance, control and calmness in the workplace and personal lives.
The name Equan comes from the words equilibrium and equanimity, which in my mind are where we all want to be, balanced and calm.

Workplace Wellness Programs
‘In the UK there were 12.5 million working days lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2016/17.’ (Health and Safety Executive, 2017)
Workplace stress is something that has huge ramifications for individuals, teams, managers and productivity. A successful workplace wellness program needs to consider how individuals cope with stress in and out of the workplace and offer solutions to manage this holistically.
With over 15 years management experience I know how challenging it is to provide a supportive environment where all staff thrive. Alongside this experience I have the most up to date knowledge on what it takes to improve staff wellbeing.
I will meet with your management team and develop a wellness program to suit the needs of your organisation, team and your budget.

Are You Ready to Take Action on Your Dreams?
Shirley has been instrumental in my career and personal development. She has the ability to create a thought provoking space, which allows you to clarify your goals, explore opportunities to grow and build your confidence. Shirley provides meaningful direction to your ideas and thoughts and repackages them in a way where it is easy to take the next steps. If you are looking for someone to guide you in your quest to know more about you, your skills, your potential and your career goals, who is passionate, empowering and experienced to say the least- look no further than Shirley.
I first met Shirley when I commenced in my new role of Executive Director Clinical Operations – Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network. Shirley was tasked with leading a review of the organisational structure. The structure itself is very complex being a statewide service located in over 60 sites with multiple service streams and a complex management structure reporting through to the Chief Executive. The process if not handled respectfully and with technical expertise would never eventuated, however, under Shirley’s guidance, expertise and leadership, what was delivered was an advanced and exceptionally well executed proposal that was accepted by the Network. I believe it was Shirley’s, methodology, expertise, relationship management skills and ability to problem solve “with people” that allowed the restructure to be a success. I would have no hesitation in re-engaging or recommending Shirley to any professional seeking to elevate individuals, teams or organisations to a new future.
Shirley has been a mentor/ coach for me over the past ten years while working in Sydney. Over this time I have worked in various roles and Shirley has guided me in my development from a junior to senior manager. She provided invaluable advice and support to me while enabling me to grow and learn from my experiences and roles. Shirley is an inspirational leader, an innovative thinker and understands the needs of individuals and groups working in the healthcare industry. She is dedicated, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Shirley time and time again, she is greatly missed in Sydney.
