TEACHER TESTIMONIALS

"The level of engagement was so high!"

This was a great seminar enjoyed by many of our students. They really felt empowered after the discussion. It was highly engaging and the information was presented to students in a safe and inclusive environment.

Nicole Parry
 Teacher

"From the start of the presentation, Demi had the girls laughing and excitedly talking about content that covered the female reproductive system and menstrual cycle. Demi tailored the content to the needs of the cohort and used age appropriate language and anecdotes to explain key ideas in a clear and concise manner. She offered a wealth of advice and made recommendations that addressed the needs of a diverse student group."

Effie Mellas
 Teacher

"I really enjoyed the way you started the whole thing – it didn’t come across as a seminar and just another talk. You caught their attention and were relevant to them. I think the way you broke it up with little hacks and discussion was good – this makes them accountable on the spot. Sometimes these things go in, but not much happens after that. The fact that you made them talk about it right there was great. You created a safe place for them to feel comfortable to share. It was SOOOOOOOOOOO good. I spoke to a group of girls at recess to get their feedback and their responses were: “It was really good” “We could relate to her. She’s just like us” “She was inspiring!”

Sally Rawson
 Teacher

“It was an amazing experience for the girls involved. we had girls from year 8, 9 and 10 who were a challenging group, who were all absolutely enthralled and engaged for the entire 2 hour period. I’d thoroughly recommend it to anybody.”

Matthew Mortimer

HEALTH EXPERTS WHO SUPPORT BRIGHT GIRL HEALTH

“Bright Girl Health Seminars are switching the way young women approach their hormone health for the better – showing them we don’t need to fear our health but embrace it, simply by understanding it better. It’s a total game changer!”

Nat Kringoudis – Doctor of Chinese medicine, fertility expert, author

“There is a plethora of health information online and in practice. I see many young women affected by misinformation. Bright Girl Health seminars debunk health myths and provide accurate, educational health information in a sensitive and non threatening way. This education is a gift for young women, setting them up for a happier and healthier future!”

Jodie Bees- Naturopath & Clinical Nutritionist

“The impact of Bright Girl Health is boundless. We see real change in students who are empowered because they understand their bodies and learn from the positive truthful tone that Bright Girl Health always strikes”

Saalt co – Saalt co menstrual cups

“As a naturopath and women’s health expert it saddens me how little women know about their bodies. Bright Girl Health is changing all that by empowering the next generation of women with the knowledge I’m sure we all wished we knew as teenagers!”

Jacqui Lamplugh – Naturopath and women’s health expert

“As a Naturopath and Acupuncturist, everyday I witness the confusion women have about their periods, ovulation, hormonal health and fertility generally. I remember my Yr 10 sex education was listing all the rude names for sexual body parts. I wish we had access to this brilliant information from Bright Girl Health back then. It is such important information missing from mainstream education”

Miranda Myles – Naturopath, Acupuncturist, “The Contemporary Conceptionist”

“As a mother and Midwife, I feel really passionate about young women learning how amazing their bodies are! I wish I had this information when I was in school”

Candice Bauer – Registered nurse and founder of Bare by Bauer

“As a Chiropractor, I regularly see patients with aches and pains that are actually influenced by an imbalance in their hormones. I am so grateful for Demi and the Bright Girl Health initiative for putting in the hard work and getting to the roots of hormonal health throughout high schools, to prevent it from becoming a major issue later in life. I wish I had this kind of resource as a student!”

Ellen Ribolli – Chiropractor

“Bright Girl Health seminars are a must for your teen girls. With her heart centered approach and experience as a high school teacher, Demi will guide your teen to knowing all things menstrual and reproductive health and help her make empowered decisions. You have got to get your hands on this.  

I wish these programmes were in my school when I was a teen so I didn’t have to get the awkward convo with my mum about periods that just didn’t make sense.”

Diana Baybrooke – Anxiety life coach and mind detox practitioner

“If only we had something like the Bright Girl Health seminars when I was growing up, the information and support for young girls is inspiring to see”

“The Bright Girl Health Seminar, specifically the ‘Know Your Flow’ presentation, was such a valuable experience for girls at our school. Demi is a highly engaging, honest and encouraging speaker who inspired our Year 7s to learn and talk about topics that they would have otherwise been embarrassed to explore in other contexts. From the start of the presentation, she had the girls laughing and excitedly talking about content that covered the female reproductive system and menstrual cycle.

Demi herself was really professional and presented the material in a really personable manner. She certainly had the girls laughing within the first few minutes and that made it a really enjoyable presentation”

I really think the girls would have enjoyed the fact that Demi spoke to them at their level and talked about things that they probably don’t get to talk about all the time. They would certainly learn some really helpful things about self talk and the way they think about themselves and their bodies, their own attributes and why they need to love themselves a bit more.”

Sharlene Fracarossi – Teacher

“This was a great seminar enjoyed by many of our students. They really felt empowered after the discussion. 

I think that all of the presentation was valuable as it allowed a platform for the students to talk about a topic that can somewhat be confronting. 

It was highly engaging and the information was presented to students in a safe and inclusive environment.”

Nicole Parry – Teacher

“Demi was very enthusiastic, honest and engaging with the students. They were obviously engaged and even connected with each other when they did the group work. I particularly liked that what the girls left with were all positives. They didn’t leave sad about bullying or what others were doing, but left with positive ideas about themselves and a plan of action.
I asked the girls what they thought this morning and they were quite enthusiastic. Specifically they said they appreciated the personal stories and how you put them into context and made them relatable. They felt safe to talk to you and like the environment was safe to share with the other people. They enjoyed your sense of humour and appreciated the ability to share with the person next to them positive things rather than focusing on their negative experiences.  
It was really fun”

Beth Fuller – Teacher

“The Bright Girl Health program is an ideal way to provide quality information regarding a sensitive issue for young maturing girls. A very much needed program that would suit high school girls and assist school well-being staff in their whole school programs which aim to develop girls understanding of their physical and emotional development. Presented in an interesting fun way it will assist girls to engage confidently in discussions and pave the way for further understanding. A much needed professional program.”

Catherine Duncan – Retired Deputy Principal

– Student responses

“In a time where most families are time-poor and opportunities for conversation between parents and their teenagers are limited, Bright Girl Health offers a great way for girls to be educated and engage in conversation around some very important topics. This is a most worthwhile program that will be significant in the lives of the girls who interact with it”

Brom Morphett – Teacher

“The Bright Girl Health seminars take the often taboo topic of periods and provide a deeper, holistic understanding of menstrual health. By opening up positive conversations and by offering critical information to students these seminars empower and inspire”

Jacqueline – Teacher

“As a teacher and youth leader I understand the importance of giving our girls the knowledge and confidence to know how to deal with everything that comes with having your period. Bright Girl Health equips young people with a voice and allows them to be confident with who they are. Bright Girl Health takes away the anxiety and fear of having a period and replaces it with knowledge and value. I highly recommend this seminar for any school!”
