We teach you how to unpack and empty out your emotional baggage

Healthy Shame verses Toxic Shame. There is a very real difference between healthy shame, which is our Jiminy Cricket - our Conscience in determining right and wrong and Toxic Shame which is when we believe that we are wrong or flawed.

Improve Self Esteem and re build your Confidence. We judge ourselves and others harshly. We cover up by trying to be perfect.

Do you question who you are and can't seem to find the answer? Uncover your real self, under the masks and behind the walls we put up to protect ourselves.

Overcome the fear and pain of rejection & abandonment.

About Us

A self funded community service organisation, providing specialised services, for all who are suffering from any and all emotional pain. For over twenty five years I have been running a Non-Funded, Not for Profit Community Service Organisation called Breaking Free. This organisation’s original purpose was to provide specialised affordable and effective Intensive Healing and Recovery Programs for Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse for women and men. To date, over six thousand people have completed our programs and the services offered have increased according to the need in communities across South East Queensland.


My work has been recognised extensively though the many awards and accolades’ during this time, including being a twice winner of the Earle Deuce Mental Health Award 2000 and in 2015 the Individual Mental Health Award.

One of the most in demand programs offered; are the Anger Management Program due to the structure and focus of this program.

The focus of this program is;

1. Learn techniques to manage the day to day stressors and frustrations and not allow the build-up that fuels the volcanic eruptions.

2. Identify and heal the original wounds and learn the tools to eliminate the triggers and sabotage behaviours.

Know Somthing

For over twenty five years I have worked tirelessly, to offer services to the community that will reduce and eliminate the toxic, destructive behaviours we see in our society. All my work is founded upon gaining awareness and understanding of themselves and the destructive impact of their behaviours on themselves and those around them. This gives them Hope and empowers them to take responsibility for the choices they make.

Through the program, they gain the tools and strategies necessary, to enable them to heal their emotional baggage, pain, and rage. The outcome of this is men and women becoming empowered to make proactive, healthier decisions and choices, which leads to healthier positive behaviours.

Have the things that originally helped you to avoid your pain and numb out, are now the very things that are contaminating your relationships, your health, your life? . Do they now control your life? . You don’t want to use them, but you don’t know how to live without them? . If you answered Yes to any of these, then this program will help set you free. Over many years of working with people, everyone acknowledges the reasons they use drugs, alcohol, food, sex, pornography, violence, gambling, shopping, spending money, work, making money, ect… is because they will do anything to avoid feeling and to shut down their head. So they find what works for them, to help them numb out and escape from themselves, their families and the world for a while. Unfortunately, they soon discover they need more and more and then this takes over and becomes the very thing that keeps them trapped in a cycle of misery, conflict, pain and hardship. If you have had enough of this endless rollercoaster then there is Hope! . These unique and effective Healing and Recovery Programs can and will Set You Free, Ifyou’re ready to try something different! . This 10 week Healing and Recovery Program will teach you “How To” get off the rollercoaster and win the battle that rages from within.
