Meet Annabel Rees

Annabel commenced working for LifeCare as a Supervisor in 2019. Annabel’s BSci (Psychology) and postgraduate Diploma in Health Psychology, has led her to various roles in the Education, Welfare and Child Safety sector in the UK, NSW and now Queensland.

Her 15 years’ experience in these roles is a real asset as the Senior Practitioner at LifeCare’s Children’s Supervised Contact Service.
