Join us for our next discussion on the topic:

Navigating big life transitions: Finding ways to move forward

We have some great guest speakers coming along to guide us through this topic.

Rod Quintrell will discuss some common, big life transitions and explore the process of what can be experienced internally.

Rod is an experienced Counsellor & Psychotherapist who has worked with a range of clients including in community settings and in palliative care. In 2021, Rod ran a pilot program at Sonder, ‘Covid and Your Wellbeing’, working with seniors experiencing isolation exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. He is currently practising as a Co-Morbidity Clinician within Sonder’s Partners Toward Wellbeing, a program delivered in partnership with Mission Australia, which supports individuals with both alcohol and other drug use concerns and mental illness.
