Dr Marny Lishman is a Health & Community Psychologist, Keynote Speaker, Author, & Media Commentator.
Marny’s work involves creating agility of the mind, increasing people’s psychological capacity to not only design & create the life that they envision, transforming their internal capabilities to beyond what they thought possible, and providing them with the skills to deal with individual and collective disruptions that they will inevitably face on their life journey.
A nurturer at heart, Marny has worked in private practice for many years, has worked in academia in several Perth universities and now predominantly designs and delivers bespoke mental health & workplace team mindset learning and development experiences.

A 'nature child' who requires lot of outside time, Marny is her best self when she can indulge in long walks with her dog, pop along to her local pilates class, read, meditate and spend time with her shiny (but rather) loud children.
Coaching & Mentoring Packages
For those who want to engage in personal intensive mindset work can work on an individual basis with me. My mentoring packages encompass not only psychological & coaching techniques but mentoring based on my own life experiences.
I teach people how to become calm, confident and in control by working with you to facilitate psychological wellbeing and put you on the pathway to where you personally want to go. I do this by working through a holistic process which includes evidence-based techniques and strategies I know will make an enormous difference to your wellbeing and success.
It can take courage to change but if you are prepared to find new ways of responding to old situations and redirecting your life by taking on board what we discuss in our sessions, then our work together will be life changing. I've had the privilege of working with hundreds of clients over the years and watching their stories unfold has made me love my job even more!
You can expect that I will provide an open and accepting space to explore your challenges and develop workable solutions, hold you accountable for the goals you set yourself, and collect feedback from you during every session. I'm sure you will enjoy working with me and my down-to-earth approach to life and all it's challenges (and successes of course!).
Please EMAIL ME for more information about package costs or for a free 20-minute strategy session.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT IN THE WORKPLACE

** NEW CORPORATE WORKSHOP **
FLOW: ‘Psychological Flexibility’ In the Workplace.
There are definite advantages to being conscientious and able to follow a certain schedule, and especially to show up when you’re expected. However, as irritating as imposed changes can be to our schedule and life, do you ever wonder if you’d get less worked up if you just let life "happen"?
Researchers suggest there are benefits for us to just go more with the flow. Psychological flexibility can allow people to better cope when situations don't go according to plan. And TBH right now, most things aren’t going to plan for most people across the country. Going with the flow does not come naturally to many, but research suggests that psychological flexibility can be a tool to promote positive change, and we can certainly learn how to be more flexible and apply it to our personal and professional life during pandemic times.
This presentation is available as a 1 hour seminar or half day workshop, where Marny will teach workplace teams how to develop the 'Psychological Flexibility' needed to perform at their best in the current climate. Available in person or online.

NEW BOOK! OUT NOW
A BEAUTIFUL MESS - DR MARNY LISHMAN
Marny has worked with thousands of people as a psychologist, and knows a little about how people think, feel and behave. So much so that she notices time and time again the main areas where people get stuck and what little things they could start doing from now to get unstuck. This book is part personal, part musings and part how-to. Whatever page the reader turns to will give them a tool to action, but even more importantly, the knowledge that they’re certainly not alone. We are all a beautiful mess, and the first step is us owning it.
