Dr Nicole Highet is a clinical psychologist and the Founder & Executive Director at COPE: Centre of Perinatal Excellence. Previously Nicole worked at Beyond Blue as the Deputy CEO and National Perinatal Advisor.
Nicole has a Doctorate in clinical psychology specialising in community approaches to treating postnatal depression. After her training she moved from Perth to Melbourne, and detoured into the world of marketing and advertising.
The combination her clinical and marketing skills ended up being the perfect stepping stone for her to join Beyondblue in 2001, just after the Initiative began.
Beyond Blue is an Australian, independent non-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related mental disorders. Nicole worked with beyond Blue fore 12 years.
One of her most passionate endeavours at Beyond Blue was the success of the National Perinatal Depression Initiative. In response to this issue and the need for a dedicated focus in perinatal mental health, Nicole established COPE, Centre of Perinatal Excellence.
In this episode we discuss iCOPE - an interactive, digital screening platform that facilitates efficient and effective screening in the perinatal period (during pregnancy and year following birth).
Nicole's passion is contagious, and she encourages us to think big picture and follow our passions. So let's see how we all wear it differently with Nicole Highet.

Today my guest is Clay Cockrell, LCSW, a therapist based in New York City.
Six years ago, Clay began his journey into the online world by the creation of Online Marital Counseling (www.maritalcounseling.com), where he works with couples all over the world to improve and/or salvage their broken relationships. He and his clients have found it incredibly valuable, particularly when the couple is living apart (perhaps as expats) or having scheduling issues that prevent them from engaging in traditional couples counseling.
As Clay chatted to colleagues about the benefits of online counselling it became evident many didn't’ know what it was or liked the idea but were fearful or put off by the technological side.
In 2016 he founded Onlinecounselling.com – a listing directory with the mission of helping clients all over the world to find the therapist or life coach that will best meet their needs. The site also provides educational resources and podcasts to help counselors work online in an ethical, responsible and legal manner.
Whilst clearly savvy with technology, Clay is also one for the outdoors. He started his career as the creator of Walk and Talk Therapy (www.walkandtalk.com). Instead of meeting in a traditional office, he conducts counseling sessions while walking through Central Park in NY.
ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN and New York Times were interested in walkandtalk.com and Clay’s other endeavours as was I. So let’s see how we all wear it differently with Clay Cockrell.
