Speech and Language Pathologist

Acey Holmes


I spent much of my professional life helping people of all ages and abilities to communicate, mostly through play. I’m experienced as an educator and speech-language pathologist with years of experience in paediatrics. I now focus on bringing play to adults through consulting and facilitation all based in the neuroscience of play. Personal and professional lives can be improved through a simple application of play and playfulness seeking transformation of individual and team well-being, creating happier communities.

I also support individuals and organisations by developing and facilitating fun and interactive sessions covering the power of play at work, the neuroscience of play and personal play identities, helping to improve employee development and team dynamics.
