Robyn Frank: My story
My journey has been varied, working in five key areas: performance, natural health, aged care, training and coaching. As a young woman I was fulfilling my childhood dream, working in the theatre in England. Whilst in the UK I became interested in natural medicine and returned to Australia and studied massage, aromatherapy and flower essences. A few years later I opened my private practice and later began working as an Aromatherapy Consultant to improve quality of life of residents in Aged Care facilities.
In 1998 I was given the opportunity to share my passion for aromatherapy as a lecturer for the Australian College of Natural Medicine where I was awarded an Academic Blue Award for Excellence. I developed an innovative and creative aromatherapy subject and mentored interstate lecturers to deliver the training. In recent years I've worked in e-learning and facilitated webinars as an online facilitator and staff mentor for the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences.
In a leadership role for my professional aromatherapy association (IAAMA) I created opportunities for members by helping them to connect with leaders in the health industry in state meetings and the 2012 National Conference. In 2014 I facilitated a business coaching session at the IAAMA AGM which resulted in a national marketing campaign: Aromatherapy Awareness Week.
It was a natural progression to complete qualifications in Life Coaching. Essence of Life Coaching was established in 2005 where I specialise in stress management, wellness coaching and creating opportunities for wellness practitioners.
It is an joy to assist clients to improve quality of life and support wellness practitioners to fulfill their dream of helping others.
The Enhancing wellness workshop weaves together various experiences from my life including health and wellness, sensory therapies and the healing power of art and nature. Sharing the wellness philosophy of Patch Adams brings me full circle: from my current career in wellness back in time to my original career in the creative arts when I studied clowning, mime and Commedia dell'arte.
