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.
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.
