Not all disabilities and health challenges (physical, mental or neurological) are visible. Hundreds of recognised conditions are defined as a disability because they significantly impact daily life. However, as they are not apparent to the external observer, the sufferer often keeps the condition and the challenges it creates hidden. Many also struggle to accept their disability, which can lead to serious problems, both for themselves and the people around them.

Passionate about supporting people’s wellbeing through preventative mental health
Wayne is passionate about supporting those living with disability to accept who they are and identify previously unseen pathways to personal and professional fulfilment. He offers coaching to individuals and groups through his business, Mighty Ability, which specialises in empowering people living with disability to realise their vision. He also partners with major NGOs, such as Anglicare, to run wellbeing programs that support people with low-intensity mental health issues.
Wayne knows first-hand what it’s like to experience life-altering health conditions and what it takes to move forward and succeed.
The people, organisations and communities Wayne supports benefit from his empathy and personal experience with the issues they face. His early personal struggles to own and accept his invisible disability led to a host of unhealthy choices and challenging outcomes, including alcoholism, divorce and deteriorating health. Having done the work to turn his life around, he knows what works and what doesn’t when working with others.
Wayne’s personal and professional development journey is diverse and spans over four decades.
Wayne has successfully broken through his challenges, and the results speak for themselves. In addition to his success in the corporate and social enterprise sectors, he has built a business aligned with his vision and mission and has coached leaders, teams and community groups for more than ten years with outstanding results. It has taught him the most effective ways to not only deal with unique conditions such as the one he lives with daily but thrive and live a life of fulfilment.
25+ years demonstrated leadership success in the corporate sector and 10+ years coaching experience

The need for specialised coaching and support for people living with disability is on the rise.
Wayne is acutely aware of the high number of people living with disability who lack the support they need and deserve. His vision is to grow a community of coaches with the experience, knowledge, empathy and passion to support people on the NDIS. In this way, he hopes to bridge the gap between disability and ability, individually and collectively.
Wayne is guided in life by his faith and is a proud father of three young adults. He enjoys spending time in nature, fishing, kayaking and other water sports.
