Kristine Bull

Psychologist and founder, Brain Boot Camp

2023 TAS Local Hero Nominee

Kristine Bull has been a practising psychologist for more than 20 years. She’s now using that knowledge to build a strong support network for children and families in Devonport.

Kristine was instrumental in creating Pathway Shed, a youth and families outreach centre, and Pathway House, which she set up and manages.

Pathway House provides low-cost psychology, counselling and social work services to the community, with a particular focus on people living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She also volunteers at both centres.

Kristine developed her own mental health program for children, ‘Brain Boot Camp’, which is a safe space for participants with disabilities, social difficulties, for those who have suffered trauma or come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Through her paid and voluntary roles, Kristine has given the community access to mental health training, affordable counselling, and facilitated connection and understanding.
