Work with Angela, online or in-person

An experienced therapist who is obsessed with how you use your time, focus and energy.

Hi, I'm Angela

I am really excited you are here as we must have a common interest; using our time, energy and focus well. I have the belief that the time we have is precious and in an age of distraction it is becoming difficult for us all to focus on the things that truly matter to us. Whether this is our kids, our work, our health or our relationships. With distractions and noise surrounding us we are finding it difficult to filter them out leaving us unfulfilled and questioning how in the world we are going to keep up. 

I have been working with for the last 20 years as an Occupational Therapist and have been on a quest to see how we can focus on what is important to us by understanding how we think, how we learn and how we engage with the world around us. But along the way I too became distracted, I too have found it difficult to filter the noise of what can be done, what I haven't done and what I think I should have done. After sustaining a brain injury at 17 years old finding a way to work with a brain that was often tired or distracted became an obsession for me to help both kids and adults better understand what distracts them and how to create an environment that supported them to thrive.

My work has led me into schools working alongside teachers supporting them to build learning environments to cater for the diverse learning needs of all kids. It has also led me into corporate environments where distraction is a constant source of wasted time, energy and resources and employers are looking for ways to cater for the diverse needs of employees and help them balance work satisfaction and productivity. I have shared my messages of finding calm and thriving in the age of distraction across multiple sectors and industries through my key notes and workshops. I am so honoured to do the work I do.

I am very proud to have authored 2 books, The Power of Conscious Choice and Switch Off, how to find calm in a noisy world which both helped me to go deeper on how we can make better decisions about where we focus our attention and thrive. 

My purpose is to help us learn the tools that allow us to stay connected to what is important to us despite the distractions that can pull us off our course. I look forward to working with you.

Take a look below at the ways we can work together.

Leanne Robbins

Parent Assembly Cluster Coordinator

We have been extremely privileged to have Angela Lockwood present to a number of parents in our school communities across the Lismore Diocese and most recently at our Diocesan Parent Assembly Representative Gathering. After a disruptive couple of years Angela set the scene for our parents to reflect, review and refocus themselves and their families. Angela has also shared with our school communities strategies for parents on how to create a calm family life and on understanding sensory behaviours in children.

Angela’s presentations are always very informative and engaging. The stories and examples Angela shares are relatable and easily applied in family life and her “down to earth” approach is appreciated by parents wanting the best for their children. Angela is dynamic, engaging and inspiring, delivering messages that resonate with all in our parent community. I highly recommend Angela Lockwood
