Aims to Teach & Empower Individuals & Communities
To Treat & Resolve Stress, Overwhelm & Trauma
Our aim is for people to feel safe and connected by creating a world where they feel understood and valued.
Restoring Resilience intends on achieving this via a suite of training programs that empower counsellors, mental health practitioners; organisational team leaders and managers; teachers, parents, families and communities.
The programs are underpinned by a neuroscientific map, the Polyvagal Theory, and incorporates a combination of Somatic Experiencing and Gestalt Therapy interventions. The programs are interactive, theoretical, incorporate experiential exercises, self-inquiry, case studies and interventions.
The Training Program
Our Working with Kids programs are designed for practitioners and parents to help build a strengthened bond with kids and youth that supports healing, growth and resilience; to increase practitioner understanding and provide effective powerful interventions for working with varied behaviours and presentations.
Our Reflective Practice and Supervision programs are designed to support practitioners in both their professional and personal development. The programs are designed to support practitioners to track their own nervous system, to learn to work from a place of regulation and embodiment, skills essential in protecting practitioners from vicarious trauma/ burnout. Sessions teach practitioners the importance of self care, maintaining healthy boundaries and achieving great client outcomes.
- “Working with kids” for Practitioners
- “Tuning into Teens” for Parents
- “Reflective Practice” for Practitioners

Our work in developing a high school program has become highly acclaimed as quoted within it this newly released book.
Stop trauma in its tracks, address disruptive behaviors, and create a safe and thriving environment with a neuroscience-backed approach to running your classroom.
