Name: Robyn Hunt

About: I have been a member of Yellow Ribbon since 2007 and enjoy volunteering in the field of Mental Health, giving back to my community and meeting people from all walks of life.

Since returning to study as a mature age student, I have qualified in Holistic Counselling, Artistic Therapies and become a Facilitator for Conversations for Life.

It has been a rewarding and positive experience working with Expressive Therapies since 2005, with the use of mediums such as water colour, crayon, clay and sand play.

My particular area of interest is Grief and Loss and completing courses like Emotional Literacy, Seasons for Growth and the Map of Loss have complimented my facilitation of the Yellow Ribbon Suicide Bereavement Groups.
