Psychotherapist Jackie Furey is one of the country’s leading experts on Relationship Success for both business and personal growth. Her aim is to help people to bring out the best in themselves, as well as those around them, in love, life and work.
Sydney-based, Jackie is a specialist in the area of personal and professional development. During the past eight years, she has delivered keynote presentations and facilitated workshops in over 40 major cities around the world.
Jackie appears regularly on a variety of radio stations and hosted her own radio talk back show for 3 years. Her comments are sought for electronic and print media and the ABC documentary, “Welcome to Intimacy” credits her work for supporting people in having rich and rewarding relationships.
In addition to her public speaking and media commitments, Jackie has also been running a successful private practice. In all parts of her professional life, Jackie is able to share her insights into the human mind, as well as her sensitivity towards human life. She is as astute on a stage in front of thousands as she is with an individual.
Her theories are underpinned by the belief that a good relationship with others, and with ourselves, is crucial to having good relationships in our personal and professional worlds. Life is rarely simple or easy, and choices abound – bringing a great deal of responsibility and the sense of overwhelming obligation. Through trying to be all things to all people, individuals go to bed each night exhausted but with a mind still focussed on what needs to be done and what hasn’t been done. Jackie emphasises how important it is for people to get to know themselves and what really matters to them – and why.
As she puts it, “I am passionate about showing people how to replace their confusion and angst with clarity and peace. This results in a more satisfying life from the ‘bedroom to the boardroom. ®’”
