Support Group Representative
Eimear Quigley is a Clinical Psychologist and the General Manager – Psychology at the ORS Group. She also maintains an Adjunct Senior Lecturer position with Edith Cowan University. Eimear has a lifelong passion for helping others and over the last 20 years, has worked across the mental health, child protection and disability sectors. Working as a clinical psychologist and senior leader in government, non-government and private industries in Perth, regional WA and now at a National level across Australia has given her a strong grounding and focus on compassionately healing others. At ORS, she extends this person-centred humanistic approach to developing the next generations of psychologists through the internship program as well as overseeing the provision of high-quality psychological services by registered and endorsed psychologists across Australia.
Eimear enthusiastically brings her experience and knowledge to the role of Secretary with ConnectGroups. Since 2019, she has contributed to strategic thinking and direction as a member of the Executive Committee and in 2022 took on the additional role of member representative, as a member of the Peel ADHD Parent Support Group. Caring for neurodiverse family members and being part of a Support Group to connect with others in similar experiences helps her to bring the voice of lived experience to the Board discussions. She believes that the solution to human suffering is human connection, and that grassroots Support Groups with people who have lived experience are an essential part of this solution.
