About Liz Mullinar

AM, B.Th, M.Couns


Liz Mullinar is a survivor of childhood trauma, a published author and a globally renowned trauma expert and keynote speaker. As the founder of Australia’s first advocacy organisation for child abuse survivors, Liz has been at the forefront of fighting for the recognition and rights of survivors for over 25 years.

In 1999 she founded the Heal For Life Foundation (Mayumarri) to provide a safe centre for survivors where they could heal from the devastating impact of trauma and abuse. The Heal For Life model has helped over 8,500 people across Australia and the world and has been independently evaluated to achieve significant, long-term improvements in mental, social and emotional health.

In 2000 she was awarded the inaugural Australian Humanitarian of the Year Award. In 2009 she was honoured with an Achievement Award on Australia Day, as well as being named as NSW Volunteer of the Year. She was a finalist for Australian of the Year in 2010. She has written three books to encourage survivors of childhood trauma to begin healing.

Liz concentrates her time on the training and supervision of therapists in the use of the Heal For Life treatment model in their private practice and in training teams in other countries to run the program. Liz is also working with remote Indigenous communities in the Kimberly (West Australia) to help them develop and train teams to run Heal For Life programs in their communities.

Before her career in trauma healing, Liz was Australia’s leading casting consultant for over thirty years, casting films such as Picnic at Hanging Rock, Babe, Street Fighter and Shine. She was responsible for starting the careers of many of Australia’s leading actors. In 1995 she was listed by The Age newspaper as one of the ten most powerful people in Australian television, and gave up her career to dedicate the rest of her life to advocating for survivors of childhood trauma and abuse.

Liz is available for speaking events, interviews and research collaboration projects in Australia and around the globe.
