Our Presenters

David Hains

David is a Mental Health Nurse Consultant working in a variety of settings including Headspace (youth mental health service) where he does single session therapy, and a hospital emergency department in Adelaide, Australia (he's not a kiwi, but he did spend all of 2019 in the Bay of Plenty). People don't come to see him because they are having a good day. His job is to have them leave in a better state than when they arrived, but he may only have a short time to do this. 

David is the former President of the Australasian Solution Focused Association and in recent years he has been awarded the Leadership Award from the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation, the Achievement Award from the Australian College of Mental Health Nurses, and the South Australian Premier's Nursing Scholarship. In 2016 he started a private business ‘Left Turn’ as a way to bring his knowledge, experience and passion for the solution focused approach out of the hospital and into the real world.

Emma Burns

Emma is a registered psychologist who was introduced to the Solution Focused in 2011. She immediately fell in love with the approach, and has been a passionate advocate for it ever since.

Emma has worked in mental health, education, traumatic incident response and was the national clinical advisor for suicide bereavement. Since 2010 Emma has been working within the justice field, supporting families experiencing violence and abuse, and has a special interest in suicide prevention. She is the President of the Australasian Solution Focused Association and has a small part time business delivering training, supervision and counselling.
