With Compliments


Psychology Johnathan Thurston JT


"Jo is great at helping athletes prepare for their mental game and

managing the balance of professional sport and life. 

Actually, she is better than Lego – you should go and see her!



Sport Psychology Townsville Crocodiles

As captain of a national sporting team, the Townsville Crocodiles, for 5 years, a husband and father and community icon, the pressure can be unrelenting. Knowing that Jo is only a text message or phone call away is like having your own personal bulletproof vest. She makes you feel like nothing can hurt you and everything will be great. Following a serious injury I managed to play 2 more great years in the NBL. Jo is every bit as responsible for any successes I was able to have as the Coach was". 


Positive Education Townsville Psychology

"Dr Joann Lukins has been an amazing facilitator and professional mentor for our staff at Townsville Grammar School in our journey of embracing Positive Psychology and a strengths based Positive Education programme. Joann has delivered inspirational addresses, facilitated exceptional workshops and always been a pillar of support in our quest to be better skilled in our role as teachers of young people. We have been truly fortunate as a school to have had such a consummate professional to assist in our growth as an organisation”.  


Psychology Townsville Fire

"I appointed Jo to work as Team Psychologist with the Townsville Fire in my role as Head Coach.  Working with Jo has had a significant positive impact on both the team and myself as a coach.  Working with Jo has allowed us to reflect on our capabilities and improve ourselves as players and people.  I acknowledge the contribution Jo made to the team in us reaching 4 grand finals, and being victors in 2015 and 2016.  I highly recommend Jo’s professionalism and ability to bring out the best in people”.


 Positive Education St Hilda

 "We were really fortunate to enjoy Joann’s Staff Wellbeing presentation to our combined Teaching and Support Staff at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls (Perth), during our January professional learning days. Jo’s engaging style meant that her message inspired our staff with a positive start to the 2016 academic year.  Our staff were able to identify their signature character strengths through an online survey prior to the presentation.  Joann’s ability to connect with the audience, via the sharing of personal stories meant that staff have since shared it was the best PD they have attended in years".
