Trauma Counselling Therapy Programs - You Can Recover | Heal For Life

We believe everyone has the right to Heal For Life

Our residential programs empower people to heal from childhood trauma, as part of a holistic approach to trauma counselling and healing.

Trauma can cause mental illness and addiction

If you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotional pain, relationship issues, or just struggling to cope with ‘normal’ life – you may benefit from a trauma recovery program.

Our healing programs have helped over 8,500 people to heal. We can help you too.

What's the link between trauma and mental illness?

Trauma is often diagnosed as depression, anxiety, mental illness and addiction.

Watch Heal For Life founder, Liz Mullinar explain how childhood trauma physically affects the development of the brain, which impacts the way we think, process emotions and how we behave.

Healing Programs

We empower you with the knowledge, tools and support you need to heal and feel hopeful about your future.

Our trauma recovery programs have been carefully designed to help you understand the impact trauma has had on your life. Each program honours your intuitive knowledge and incorporates the latest research about the impact of trauma on the brain.

Attending our programs can complement trauma counselling by helping you feel safe and get ‘unstuck’.

Why health professionals refer to our programs

We empower survivors to heal the painful emotional triggers that can impact their ability to engage with  services or trauma therapy.  After a Heal For Life program, health professionals tell us their clients are more receptive and resourced to help themselves.

We can help you understand your trauma responses and heal them to experience new levels of empowerment and enjoyment in your life.

Our counsellors and psychologists are either survivors of childhood trauma or are trained by survivors to understand what you and other survivors need to feel safe and validated.

Neuroscience based, independently evaluated

Our model is based on the latest research in neuroscience and is aligned with recommendations from the Australian Centre for Post Traumatic Mental Health. 

Independent evaluation has found that our program is responsible for long-term, statistically significant improvements in mental health, emotional and social functioning and improved pain and vitality scores.

Trauma therapy facilities - Heal For Life

Run by Survivors for Survivors, supervised by Registered Psychologists

Our programs are supervised and run by qualified health professionals who are also survivors of childhood trauma or abuse.
This is called ‘peer support’ and it’s universally recognised to be an essential part of trauma recovery. This approach is what sets us apart from general trauma counselling. We understand what it takes to heal because we have walked that journey ourselves.
