Hi, I am Allan and I am offering NDIS plan training. I hope to connect with anyone who needs to be trained in utilising NDIS plans. I have a unique perspective as I see the NDIS system from both sides.

MPsych (Clinical) | BPsych (Hons) | BN, Grad Cert Midwifery | MAPS | FCCLP

I work as a clinical psychologist in my private practice in Speewah. I have a dual focus on helping people with psychological difficulties and enhancing health and wellbeing.

I have more than 30 years’ experience as a health professional. I've completed a Bachelor of Nursing (General and Mental Health) in 1989 in the Netherlands and worked as a clinical mental health nurse in a forensic facility.

Immigrating to Australia in 1993, I continued my career as a registered nurse with Queensland Health. In 1999 I completed my midwifery study at Cairns Hospital and continued as a registered midwife. While working as a midwife I completed a study of Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and Master of Psychology (Clinical) and continued working the next four years as a private clinical psychologist at Cairns Doctors on Barr St and filling in as a lecturer/tutor for the psychology department at James Cook University. To diversify my practice, I also completed an Equine Assisted Psychotherapy study in early 2020.

I opened my own practice “Boonooloo Psychology and Cairns Equine Therapy” in July 2022. The clinic is centred within beautiful surroundings, allowing connection with nature that can further contribute to healing. My practice involves a wide variety of evidence-based therapies and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. I work with a wide variety of services such as Medicare, NDIS, DVA, Workcover and private health insurances.

In addition to being committed to helping individuals, couples and families reducing distress, I also work extensively with people from diverse ethnical backgrounds, including people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island descent and the LGBTIQ+ community.

At Wellbeing Dogs Cairns, our dogs have gone through an extensive training program and are annually evaluated to ensure that we are compliant with legislation, adhere to the Australian Code of Conduct for the Animal-assisted Services, policies and procedures, with risk assessments in place for emotional assistance support dogs here in Cairns, Queensland. We offer our services at very reasonable rates, and we have full insurance.

Wellbeing dogs, often referred to as therapy or emotional support dogs, offer a myriad of benefits to individuals seeking improved mental and emotional health. These canine companions contribute to a sense of wellbeing by providing unconditional love, companionship, and a non-judgmental presence. Interacting with wellbeing dogs has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and feelings of loneliness, promoting a calming effect on their human counterparts. The act of petting or simply being around these dogs can trigger the release of oxytocin and serotonin, neurotransmitters associated with positive mood and bonding. Beyond emotional support, wellbeing dogs can also encourage physical activity through walks and play, contributing to overall physical health. In various settings, such as hospitals, schools, and workplaces, these dogs facilitate a positive atmosphere and create a sense of community, ultimately enhancing the overall quality of life for those they interact with.

Discover the transformative power of our wellbeing dog services, where the boundless benefits of canine companionship converge with your journey towards improved mental and emotional well-being. Our highly trained therapy dogs provide a comforting and non-judgmental presence. Through gentle interaction, these four-legged therapists stimulate the release of mood-enhancing neurotransmitters, fostering a sense of calm and connection. Whether in healthcare, educational, or corporate settings, our therapy dog services create a positive and uplifting atmosphere, contributing to improved morale and a sense of community. Embrace the therapeutic embrace of our canine partners and unlock a path to enhanced emotional resilience, reduced stress levels, and an overall uplifted spirit. Elevate your well-being with the support and companionship of our exceptional Wellbeing Dogs Cairns service.

Hello, my name is Jessie, and I am a specialist mental health support worker providing services to people experiencing a range of health concerns, including complex mental health, ASD, ADHD, phobias and anxieties, mood disorders, acquired and traumatic brain injuries, cognitive and intellectual disabilities, and chronic disease.

I work with individuals and their families in a therapeutic, non-judgmental environment and deliver services using the Collaborative Recovery Model.

Having worked in the community sector since 2009 in a variety of roles ranging from direct support, case management, and leadership positions I have a wide range of experience and exposure assisting people to gain control of their lives and to manage complex challenges of daily living.

I work collaboratively with people and their existing support networks to co design, plan, and implement strategies for success.

My aim is to reduce barriers to support and build independence and resilience in people experiencing mental health concerns and disabilities. Through ongoing mentoring and capacity building, my supports intend to help others develop habits and routines that promote wellbeing, as well as improve daily living and life skills.

I am passionate about quality care and strive in all areas of my work to provide person centred, evidence-based supports.

I offer a wide range of services including Home Organisation and Decluttering supports and provide specialised services to work with people experiencing hoarding and squalor. The main difference between me and a regular cleaner is that I am a mental health professional with years of experience supporting people through the underlying cause of this disorder, I also provide the practical support to achieve the results.

Cairns
Business Description

Expressive arts therapy, eco therapy/nature healing, and a combination of both, available to children, adolescents, adults, and small groups.

Eco Art therapy is a gentle way to work on habitual patterns of thought and behaviour which are causing disharmony, to reduce anxiety levels, to attend to trauma, to build self-confidence/sense of agency, develop communication/emotional intelligence and social skills, and to learn new ways of regulating the nervous system.

At Innerbloom Art Therapy, we combine the arts and nature into psychotherapy (talk-therapy), offering opportunities to connect to the natural world, to develop self-awareness through exploration, expression, and growth.

Combining nature into the creative process, clients may explore new ways of considering different situations and gain new perspectives that help them to move forward into the future with a healthier self & world-view.

Within a nurturing therapeutic relationship, expressive arts offer a way to connect to the Self, and to communicate in ways which often cannot be put into words through visual art-making, sand-play, sculpting, ephemeral eco-art, drama, play-based, and movement modalities.

Trauma-informed, client-centred services are NDIS eligible for clients who are self or plan managed, where-by together we may develop a tailor-made therapeutic plan for individual sessions that attend to both plan and personal goals.

While I am not a registered NDIS provider at this stage, services are NDIS eligible for plans that are self-managed or managed by a support coordinator.

I am mobile, servicing the Cairns region south to Gordonvale, north to Northern Beaches, and the Atherton tablelands. I also offer zoom sessions and can offer in-person sessions at an indoor location.

We embrace a “family” culture that is key to providing the person-centred boutique service we are well known for in the communities we serve. Our team takes time to listen and is genuinely caring. As a result, we are known for our excellent reputation for prioritizing quality and caring service for our valued NDIS participants.

Business Description

Servicing Northern beaches and Cairns to Gordonvale
Konnect Em Services Pty Ltd., we are a registered NDIS service provider, based in Cairns. I am excited to embark on this new journey. Although new, I have a strong team of dedicated and experienced workers who have been in the industry for quite some time who share the same passion as I.
 
My background is in child protection and behaviour support practice in NDIS. I have a Master’s in Social Work, Graduate Certificate in Human Services Management, and a Bachelor’s in Business – HRM.
 
I am originally from Papua New Guinea (PNG) and have been in cairns for the past 23 years.
In saying this, I’m proud to say that majority of my team are from PNG and are hard workers and are passionate about the helping and caring work and services they provide. They believe that it’s important to connect with the participant and truly deliver work from the heart in a consensus and collective way.
 
Our motto that describes the guiding principles of the company, derives from the ‘Motu’ language of Papua New Guinea; Bahetura, Baheduru, Bahavaraia.
Bahetura means ‘relationship’ – We believe it is vital to have a good relationship with the people we support. Having good relationships creates respectful friendship and connections that help to inspire positive outcomes and builds trust that allows our participants to have the confidence to count on us. We honour these qualities in our services by strongly incorporating good relationship traits of awareness, empathy, communication, dependability, accountability, and honesty.
 
Baheduru means ‘support’- It takes courage, faith, and confidence for one (worker) to be patient enough to provide care services for an individual in need of support to help them achieve their goals, especially in the disability sector. We believe this plays a big part in social change and growth when we deliver support services with care, integrity and congeniality that promotes equal opportunity to help build a sense of confidence in people as they cultivate a sense of belonging.
 
Bahavaraia means ‘success’ – We pride ourselves with the quality of services we provide in caring for our participants and successfully meeting their short and long-term goals. We do this with a holistic approach in considering their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. We promote a culturally safe and appropriate practice standards to our First Nations people and the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) background people and celebrate with them the small and big wins.  However, our services are tailored around a person-centred approach that promotes the client’s best interest, choice, and control on how, where and when they want to achieve the best outcomes through a collaboration effort.
