Danielle Hayes

Counsellor, Educator, Parent Coach, Speaker

Danielle Hayes is the founder of Calm Kids: Counselling & Wellbeing Services - a holistic mental health support service for children and adolescents in Australia. She is also the co-founder of Time For Change: an educational wellbeing and consulting service in Bali, Indonesia.

After a 30-year career in education as a teacher, school counsellor and the principal of a holistically-based International School, Danielle felt that she needed to step out of the school system to advocate further for increased trauma awareness within schools and families. Danielle now works individually with children, adolescents and families as a holistic counsellor: providing time and a safe space for children and parents to explore their challenges and co-create their own healing journey. She is fascinated by current research into Interpersonal Neurobiology and Polyvagal Theory and describes herself as an avid lifelong learner.

Danielle is deeply passionate about the mental health challenges faced by educators and parents, and together with her partner, Anthony presents engaging workshops to educators, parents and community groups in Australia and internationally. Her workshop topics include: ‘Conscious Parenting’, ‘Parenting Your Anxious Child’, ‘Calm Teachers - Calm Kids’, and ‘Co-Regulation For Learning’, to name a few.

Danielle loves to travel the world, and she is inspired by her partner of 33 years, Anthony, her two adult children, Caitlin and Connor and her new granddaughter, Blair. Danielle now divides her time between Australia and her ‘soul home’, Bali.
