Welcome to Vicarious Insights Podcast

Hey there! Welcome to Vicarious Insights, a podcast where we dive into the fascinating and sometimes wild world of disability services, support systems, and personal growth. I’m super excited to have you here!

Why I Started This Podcast So, a bit about me—I started out as a personal trainer, just trying to help a young autistic man with his fitness goals. Little did I know, this experience would open my eyes to the mind-boggling complexities of the disability sector. Like many newbies, I found myself drowning in information (or the lack of it) and feeling pretty overwhelmed. Determined to not just float but swim, I decided to embark on a mission to educate myself.

This podcast was born out of my desire to learn from the best—experts, advocates, and those with lived experiences. I realised I wasn’t alone in feeling lost; many of us are just trying to figure things out. Vicarious Insights is my way of bridging the knowledge gap and sharing practical advice, heartwarming stories, and a few laughs along the way.

For My Clients: Each episode is packed with strategies, support, and solutions that my clients and their families can actually use. It’s all about making their lives a bit easier and a lot more awesome.

Whether you’re a parent, support worker, caregiver, or just curious about disability services, this podcast has something for you. We cover everything from the roles and impacts of allied health professionals, combating bullying, and learning techniques to make life easier with disabilities, to what goes on in the daily lives of support workers and the goals of psychologists. My goal is to give you the tools and insights to make a real difference. My goal is to give you the tools and insights to make a real difference.

I also started a networking group to connect with other professionals in the industry. Listening to their stories made me realize just how much there is to learn. This podcast is an extension of that mission—to learn from others, uncover the mysteries behind closed doors, and find people who truly get the amazing and sometimes scary world of disability.

Thanks for joining me on this journey. Let’s learn, grow, and have some fun together!
