Allison has enjoyed presenting and guest speaking for more than 15 years and is renowned for her ability to entertain a room in her unique ‘storytelling mixed with science’ approach to educating, as well as sharing enlightening excerpts of her lived experience of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder.

In this live chat we answer a handful of questions from our followers including how to know if your child is coping with anxiety, what the difference is between anxiety and a child's struggle with emotional regulation and how to best support your child on a daily basis. Plus loads more!

Episode 102: Surviving and thriving after depression with Natasha Stewart

In our second episode of Simply Kids’ UNPLUGGED I have the opportunity to speak with the remarkable Natasha Stewart from Business Jump. You may have seen Natasha on a TV interview or maybe her fantastic articles with SMH and other reputable sources. Nat is a regular in the Sydney business spotlight and having her on board for a chat was a wonderful experience.

Natasha is not just a successful, six figure business owner, she’s also a mum recovering from post natal depression. In this amazing interview we deep dive into the world of mental health, parenting and juggling a successful business. She shares her key tips for creating her balanced life while carrying twins!!

You will not want to miss this chat! Set aside just over 30 minutes (maybe while you enjoy a cuppa!) and tune in for some insight and wisdom around mental health, depression and motherhood.
