Mark Le Messurier is a teacher, counsellor, author and public speaker.
He works in private practice as a mentor to children and adolescents, and as a coach to parents.
Mark is passionate about creating real community, or socially and emotionally literate cultures, in classrooms. He, along with notable others, believes it falls to us to create safe spaces where students in classrooms can share, connect, feel as though they matter and are encouraged to explore their emerging worlds together. Mark is often invited as a critical friend into schools who want to develop this ethos.
He has a strong interest in the young people he affectionately calls the 'tough kids'; these are children who for all kinds of well-known reasons do life tougher than most. Mark's work focuses on strengthening their success through mentorship and targeted interventions. He sees the encouragement of stronger, trusting relationships between parents, teachers and students as key.
Through invitation, Mark regularly presents at conferences for Universities, public and independent schools, for parent organisations and interested groups throughout Australia and Australasia.
