Reception and Administration Team

Miku Nishiwaki:

Hello! My name is Miku and I am an administration assistant at Headspace Camperdown. I have always had a love for helping people and enjoy it thoroughly. After struggling with my own mental health when I was younger, I developed an interest in further understanding human behaviour which led me to finish my Bachelor’s in Psychology.

I have two lovely rescue dogs (two staffies) and adore them to bits. I love spending as much time as I can with them on my days off but I also enjoy watching my anime (tensei slime!), reading manga, following vtubers (Nijisanji), or playing games (LFD2, animal crossing, splatoon 3) in my spare time. My favourite food is a lemon meringue pie, I love pastries and all things sweet.





Inyoung Choi:

Hi! I’m IY.  Before joining the admin team at headspace, I was in photography/film production. My favourite part of my previous job was having the opportunity to share some of the amazing stories of people I met along the way through my work.

If I’m not at work, you might find me listening to my favourite music, playing games or at the gym. I am a huge advocate for a good balance between mental health, fitness and nutrition- though, my favourite food changes every couple of months. I might find something new or have it introduced to me- but I could eat the same thing every day for those phases.




Tia Jackson-Murphy:

I am a part of the administration team at headspace and am currently at university studying Psychology and English Literature. I have previous experience working in the office at schools and with young people. When I am not at the front desk, you can find me either surfing, reading a good book or trying not to fall off my moped. My favourite food is anything involving seafood and I am really interested in travelling more around the South Pacific & learning more about their culture.

Allied Health Team

Leesa Pech-Exercise Physiologist

I’m an Exercise Physiologist who is passionate about combining my two loves of Psychology and Exercise Physiology, with a special interest in youth, LGBTIQA+, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ health. I also work as an EP in orthopaedic, neurological and cardiac rehabilitation.

“Exercise is medicine” is a saying you’ll hear us EPs frequently say, and it’s a motto I live by. My approach to physical activity is to celebrate what our bodies can do but most importantly, to have fun!

Outside of headspace I love hanging with my toy cavoodle, eating Italian food and watching AFL – sometimes all at the same time. Go Swans!




Cresta Markovic-Occupational Therapist

I have experience working as an OT in the disability, mental health and research sectors, and have a particular interest in mental health, neurodiversity and championing the value of lived experience. I am always learning from my clients and like to take a collaborative approach in my practice.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, swimming at the beach and chasing after my dog at a local park. I love watching the sunrise and get up early most days to enjoy it.

I enjoy variety and trying new foods, but my favourite food is probably chips and gravy. Perfection!

I think the cultures of our First Nations people are pretty awesome – their values towards country and connection with community is pretty special.


Renee Oldfield-Executive Tutor

I work as an Executive Tutor at Headspace Camperdown. I focus on helping young people develop all the necessary executive functioning skills for study and work,  such as planning, self-monitoring, time management and organisation.  I am also an Occupational Therapy Assistant in my other role - I enjoy working 1:1 and in groups with young people, helping and empowering them to achieve their goals. 

I enjoy watching movies and tv series, listening to podcasts,  drawing, swimming, bush walking and climbing mountains!  I also have two furbabies - If you ask me about my cat and dog, I will probably spend way too much time telling you all about them. 

My favourite food is always going to be pasta! I love anything Mediterranean. 

I enjoy learning about different cultures. My most recent trip was to Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I loved the history, art and the yummy street food.


Youth Engagement & Peer Worker

Helia Nateghi Baygi

I'm Helia, currently pursuing my Masters in Pharmacy. I have been working as a Research Assistant, Fitness Trainer and Peer Learning Advisor at my university's library. My experience gave me  the opportunity to connect with young individuals and provide peer support.

My personal experiences with mental health struggles have fueled my passion for mental health. I'm dedicated to promoting positive mental well-being and destigmatizing mental health issues.

During my free time, I enjoy bouldering, dancing, and diving into books. The Latin culture, particularly in Spain, fascinates me, and I hope to live there someday.

I’m a Research Fellow at headspace Camperdown, and currently studying a Master of Brain and Mind Sciences. I have previously been involved in research on sport performance, working with young elite athletes, who are inspired to become the next Ash Barty.

I am interested in travelling, whether that be in my own backyard, or the steps of the Parthenon. Coincidentally, my favourite food is Moussaka (a Greek version of lasagne, with the addition of eggplant). I believe that Mexico has one of the most fascinating cultures in the world, hosting many festivals and fiestas – maybe Mexico will be my next travel destination?

In most cases, a payment is not expected when you visit headspace Camperdown.

These include Medicare-subsidised services provided by private clinicians at headspace Camperdown, services where the maximum amount of benefits have already been paid by Medicare, and services provided to young people who are not eligible for Medicare.

International student fee information

What is Overseas Health Cover (OSHC)?
OSHC is the required health cover for international students in Australia and must cover the length of your
stay. This would have been organised when you arranged your visa. OSHC benefits are similar to the cover
Australians receive through Medicare. Every OSHC provider is different so check your cover by contacting
your Overseas Health Cover provider to avoid any unwanted charges.

For students under OSHC, there may be a fee that you will need to pay if your policy does not cover the
service or if your OSHC insurer determines there is no benefit payable. Contact your membership provider
for further information.

What should I do if I have a complaint about my OSHC provider?
If you face a situation where you feel like you’re being taken advantage of or unfairly treated in regards to
your OSHC, you can contact the Private Health Insurance Ombudsman (PHIO). It’s a free service designed
to help you out of trouble!

  • http://www.ombudsman.gov.au/about/private-health-insurance
  • Phone: 1300 362 072 (within Australia)
  • Email: phio.info@ombudsman.gov.au


Please note: To ensure young people are not deterred due to cost, headspace Camperdown ensures 'no cost' options are prioritised where cost may be a barrier to a young person accessing support.
