— Welcome, I’m Jenny…

About Me

I am a psychologist, clinical supervisor, trainer and educator based on the Sunshine Coast. ​

I run my counselling business, Jemeco Psychology on Tuesdays in Caloundra.

I am the author of the Mental Health Reference Resource for Drug & Alcohol Workers for NSW Health; Trimming the Grass, a self-help resource for reducing cannabis use and co-author of the chapter “Alcohol and Young People” in Practical Interventions for Young People at RiskThe Do-It-Yourself Guide to Peer Education with Parents and the APS’ substance use position and discussion papers.



I have a Masters of Education (Adult Education) and a Certificate IVs in Assessment and Workplace Training, Alcohol and Other Drugs, Mental Health and Community Services Work. I have written a variety of workshops and managed a number of projects involving education and training.



I provided training for NSW Health, QLD Health, the Community Centre for Welfare Training (CCWT), the Centre for Education and Information on Drugs and Alcohol (CEIDA), the NSW Department of Community Services (DOCS), Centrelink, the Network of Alcohol and Drug Agencies (NADA), the Mental Health Coordinating Council (MHCC), QUEST College, the QLD Workforce Council as well as a number of other services and organisations. I also travelled to Indonesia a number of times to deliver training to government and community workers. I had the role as the secretary for the Australian Psychological Society’s Interest Group on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy & Psychology. In the past I was an educator and clinical supervisor at the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) over a ten year period.


And now…​

I currently run the Caloundra Private Clinic’s Alcohol and Drug Programs, where I provide individual and group therapy to both inpatients and outpatients. I also assess students for competency of units from the Community Services Training Package for CCWT.

I live in the Sunshine Coast hinterland with my two daughters and an adopted cat and thoroughly enjoy a good belly laugh.
