Fi Peel (they/them) has had a wide and varied engagement with the mental health sector, training concurrently as a counsellor and as a mental health peer support worker.
Fi works independently as a lived-experience recovery collaborator and sometimes peer worker; sometimes peer workforce supervisor; sometimes co-design consultant; sometimes consumer academic; sometimes NDIS consultant; sometimes policy advisor; sometimes podcast host; sometimes human rights, LGBTQI+ and mental health reform advocate; sometimes speaker; sometimes theatre-maker; sometimes writer; sometimes performer; sometimes yoga-stretcher; always curious; always musical theatre geek; always proud young adult parent; always pensive puppy parent; always long walks lover; always contemplative silence seeker; always in search of good food, a decent drop of wine and sparkling conversation; always surprising; rarely sedentary; never bored and completely unable to multitask!
Fi can be regularly observed in unusual behaviours such as rehearsal engagement absorption; crafting worlds in words laser focus; stretching vocal cords and harmonic sequences in curious ways; clumsy and self-conscious dancing or wandering across unceded Country lost in thought, with headphones blaring mixed playlists from Brahms to Broadway, always in search of the next strand of inspiration.
Diagnosis: Utterly Mad.
