Since we were opened by the then Governor-General, Sir William Deane, in 1999 we have helped over 4,000 people throughout Australia.
In Western Australia we offer a five day residential program to help you heal from your childhood issues. It is run by trained survivors for survivors in peaceful rural surroundings. Carers and facilitators will help unlock the childhood trauma which you wish to address. If you feel that your childhood has had an effect on your current life today it's you we want to help.
Independent research has shown that 98% of guests found the program effective in helping them heal from childhood trauma.
Although it costs us over a thousand dollars for each person who attends at the adult centre we make the cost achievable and affordable to anyone no matter what their financial situation. We never refuse a guest on the basis of finances.
There are many forms of childhood trauma and abuse equally impacting on the development of the brain are such traumas as abandonment, neglect, death of a parent at a very young age, or serious childhood illness as well as sexual, physical, emotional and satanic ritual abuse.
Our carers and facilitators who will support you through the week have all been through some form of childhood trauma and now want to help others find healing. They have received extensive training so as to provide effective support.
The program includes workshops on Boundaries, Inner Child work, Attachment theory, and Effects of Trauma on the Brain, all of which help you understand why you act behave and feel the way you do and you also learn how you can change. Yes you can change because science has now proven that the brain can change, we provide the tools so that when you are triggered or suffer from the many impacts of child abuse or trauma such as flashbacks or nightmares you can process though this on your own.
The program is run in groups with a maximum number of twelve, however all our work is done independently and we do not share our stories in the group.
