Letter recommending our training (received 2 October 2015)
“I was privileged enough to attend the two day training workshop at Woomera (Albury) earlier this year. Firstly, I commend you and your team for providing access to this invaluable workshop. More importantly, I would endorse the type of program conducted by ‘Heal for Life’ as an invaluable method of assisting those most difficult of clients to make positive changes to their lives. These clients often present as clients of multiple agencies and are at high risk of harm to themselves or others. Many of these people have often been ‘written off’ as too difficult to deal with, or beyond help.” David Cottee, Detective Chief Inspector, Albury Local Area Command, NSW
Testimonial recommending our work (received April 2015)
“Public Mental Health Services are not resourced for the long term management of the sequelae of childhood trauma. NGOs such as the “Heal For Life” programme are an urgently needed and valuable resource for unresolved trauma issues.” Dr Andrew Walker, FRANZCP, M.Psychotherapy (UNSW), Psychiatrist, Toronto, NSW (April 2015)
We provide a proven, long lasting solution in a safe and supportive environment.
We have helped nearly 6,000 people heal during the last sixteen years.
Over 90% of people who have attended our residential retreats have said it was ”life changing” or “very positive”.
Our healing programs are carefully designed to help survivors understand the impact trauma has had on their lives. We provide the knowledge to understand and some tools to help you start healing from the past so you can create a new and better future.

The Mayumarri property is a picturesque, tranquil and completely safe place with rolling hills and wildlife where my soul felt nurtured and cared for completely.
