About me ...

Hi, I'm Mary-Claire Hanlon ...

I’m committed to helping people to appreciate and boldly embrace who they are and who they can be, which entails honest self-evaluation and reflection.

I provide consultation, training and workshops that are fun and confronting, but completely safe for all.


My background includes higher education and health research, science and self-help, as well as big business and small.  I use all this, and more, in my awesome workshops, training sessions, and award-winning conference presentations. What I do can lead to deep transformation on the individual and team levels.

My broad experience in the corporate and health worlds, along with my life experience and my extensive education, means I appreciate the world and all it's intricacies, from many different perspectives.

Over the years, some of my titles have included ~

Author, Project Manager, Site Coordinator

Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscientist

Psychological and Mental Health Researcher

Lecturer, Lab Demonstrator, Tutor and Facilitator

Manager, Workplace Trainer, Mentor

Since 2017, I have been invited to speak at international and national conferences, and publish scholarly articles, on various mental health topics.
