While we didn’t win last night at the Illawarra Business Chamber Awards, we had a fabulous evening networking with other business. We want to congratulate 🥂 all the winners last night and All Care for their win in our category ‘Start Up Superstar’.

This year was our first year in entering awards 🏆 and we have been pleased with our achievements of winning the Illawarra Women in Business 'Best New Business' in June and then becoming finalists in the Illawarra Business Chamber awards.

As we have started to network with other inspirational business and business leaders in the community, we decided we cannot let fear stop us from trying new things to challenge us and to reflect on our practice.

From this process we have further reinforced to ourselves that:
☑️We can step outside of our comfort zone
☑️Fear will not stop us from trying
☑️We enjoy expanding our networks with other inspiring businesses and their leaders
☑️We have done the best we can and will continue to learn as we grow and develop.

We are growing and expanding our team to be a valued psychology practice to help more people daily with their mental health needs.

Keep watching this page as we share 🆕 things to provide a valued psychology service to our community as well as local businesses.

Yours truly
Empowering People to Make Meaningful Changes with their Lives

PS: With new psychologists on board we have reduced our waiting times. Ring us on 42445636 to chat to our friendly team about how we can help you!

Having ADHD is not a choice, but an opportunity for us to actively participate in supporting an individual’s needs. Punishing children for ADHD perpetuates their feelings of low self-worth and self-confidence.
