Parenting Without Burnout
Valerie's parenting seminar on raising resilient parents was insightful and wonderfully practical. She explained how to use a variety of tools across the age range to better connect with and support kids as they deal with emotions, starting with effectively modelling these strategies to your kids as you deal with your own emotions and responding to your kids/the situation they're in in a helpful way. Valerie made lots of time for questions throughout the seminar and the parents who came found it very helpful for dealing with the particular concerns they had.
Valerie’s burnout prevention program came at just the right time for me. It has given me back my passion, drive and vision. It was thorough, individualised, specific and collaborative. Highly recommend for everyone - don’t wait until you are burnt out to invest in yourself.
Valerie's workshop on burnout was thoroughly enjoyed by both our clinical and admin staff. In a profession frequently exposed to high stress situations it is important that we learn to look after ourselves in order to better help others. Valerie's presentation was engaging and refreshing, I would highly recommend this session to others 😊

I've just completed Valerie's 'Rapid Reset' program, and have so appreciated her wisdom and support in managing burnout. I now have some essential tools in my toolkit, for self-care, so I can continue to help others! Thanks Valerie!
Valerie came and spoke to my clinical team a few months ago and is an excellent presenter and thought leader in the area of burnout prevention. Much deeper, thought provoking questions than the surface level self care discussions facilitated in most professional development seminars and really practical strategies to self-assess and develop helpful habits. If you really want to get a grasp on how to have longevity in a stressful professional role or in the helping professions I strongly recommend speaking with Val about how she can assist you, your team or your organisation.
Valerie’s session on parenting was very helpful and I would recommend it to you. Valerie brings a wonderful combination of deep theory and knowledge that is then grounded in everyday ideas for how to raise kids with humble self awareness and resilience. Very engaging and approachable and able to provide realistic, wise advice for parents seeking to raise their kids well.
For the past two years Valerie Ling has presented to our entire College body on mental health and resilience. Mrs Ling ‘s input has been universally well received as she: i. understands the world of her audience; in this case the theological student and pastor ii. is a clear and engaging presenter iii. is on top of her topic, both in breadth and depth of the issues iv. is sensible in her suggestions of what is required for people in a variety of situations v. provides helpful and achievable processes for individuals to make progress in these matters We intend to have Mrs Ling deliver sessions like this every year. Valerie has also proved an invaluable resource in helping Moore College develop its thinking and support processes in the care of its students during and beyond their College education. Her concern for their wellbeing is matched by her evidence-based clarity and wisdom.

Debra TattersallPresbyterian Women's Teaching and Training Event
It was a real treat to have Valerie assist with the Developing Rectors Program. She is passionate about the issues of burnout and establishing the right foundation for the intense service that can be involved in pastoral ministry. She is so well researched and read, and it is delighted to engage in conversation to challenge our preconceptions - all the while being driven by a wonderful desire to help people start in the right place and run for the remaining decades of their working life. All present were helped to think more about their ministry sustainability, including the other presenters. We look forward to Valerie being a regular part of our self management module.
Rev Raj GuptaDeveloping Rectors Programme
We had the pleasure of having Valerie present to our teaching and non-teaching staff a professional learning seminar- Resilience in Ministry. We found that Valerie was a very engaging presenter who was knowledgeable about issues surrounding those in ministry. She discussed the issues and then gave positive strategies that enable ministry workers to develop resilience. If you choose Valerie as a key note speaker, mentor or workshop leaders you will delighted with the impact she makes to your community.
Dr Tina LamontLead Principal for the Pacific Regional Schools
Her seminar demonstrated a depth of professional experience and thoughtful preparation. As a speaker, Valerie is warm, passionate, genuine and clear. We highly recommend you experience the encouragement of her talks for yourself.
Brisbane Ministry Wives’ Network
We approached Valerie Ling, having heard her speak at a few different events for Christians on resilience, stress, and depression. Her seminar was full of professional and practical wisdom and the latest research....sharing her personal perspective was an effective way of communicating the message... in a way that made it flow naturally, and was easy to hear. We'd love to have Valerie speak again this year on a different topic, but unfortunately she's all booked up!
