Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less

— Marie Curie


Ms Joelle Compton

Hi, I'm Joelle Compton. I believe in each person’s capacity to change, grow and rise to the challenges life puts ahead of them. I believe that every person has a story that deserves to be heard, no matter how big or small. I feel strongly connected to this world; I have travelled for many years, worked hard, cooked, loved, studied, danced and everything in between. I have also suffered, struggled, been heartbroken, and put in the hard yards to build a more fulfilling life. My passion is understanding people, and helping people find new pathways to reach their deepest aspirations. 

I work as a coach and trainer for the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) and train people in various skills including confidence, self-expression, self awareness, vocal skills, voice and body connection, and emotional strength. I coach professionals, beginner actors and community members to learn new skills and hone existing skills.

I have also studied with Queensland University of Technology and the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors. I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association and I have worked as a Nationally Accredited Mediator. I have a background in relationship counselling and mediation, having helped a variety of people resolve issues in their personal lives and work lives to find a pathway toward fulfillment. I also have a strong understanding of abusive backgrounds and I have worked in advocacy roles for survivors of domestic violence.

I take a holistic approach to group training, and use the following methodologies:

  • Vocal Training
  • Movement Training
  • Action Based Learning
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Narrative Learning Techniques
  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Active Learning Methodologies
  • Meditation Techniques
  • Yoga and Exercise Techniques

I also offer one-on-one appointments for coaching, for more details visit
