Community Psychologist FRANZCP FRCPsych
Presenter, Facilitator, Keynote Speaker
The principle role of the community psychiatrist is to communicate matters relating to Mental Health by any means that might be available – Dr. Boulnois says he has been fortunate to be able to do so from places as disparate as the pulpits of cathedrals to a regular spot behind a microphone at the ABC , inclusive of “The Other Side of The Couch” and indeed many other places to many folks who have been kind enough to ask him to talk about the lessons that he has been privileged to learn from those who have sought to share their life’s experience with him.
“There is so much to learn, especially within a society that appears to be in the midst of so much change, seeking to redefine marriage, family and even community, but perhaps uncertain about what should take its place; as a result so many folk feel lost, they have no real idea precisely where and with whom they belong, and in consequence living seems to have become more a matter of surviving and have lost any real sense of meaning”.
Clearly, being told that you shouldn’t worry, it’s all a matter of having a “chemical abnormality in the brain” often feels like cold comfort indeed; there is no doubt that experts abound, even psychologists appear to have been thrust into the role of some kind of secular priest, complete with fast track mindfulness and tuition in deep breathing!
Dr Boulnois can deliver a wide variety of topics, facilitate discussion and address personal and workplace issues around mental health and wellness. His voice and content knowledge makes for excellent broadcasting and a popular keynote speaker.
