Siloam Wellness Centre Ltd
Siloam Wellness Centre Ltd is a not-for-profit charity set amongst the beautiful hills and bushland in Draper, north west of Brisbane.
We provide trauma-informed holistic care to:
Those who may be struggling with overwhelming or traumatic life events.
Those who are exploring spirituality.
Those who desire personal growth.
Those who are simply seeking belonging in a safe and authentic community.
We believe that everyone matters, and everyone and everything is redeemable. We believe that wholeness is not an absence of brokenness but an embracing and integrating of all parts of ourselves into our stories.
We believe that holistic healing and wellness occurs as we foster safe relationships, seek the presence and power of God and explore personal hindrances to well-being.
Our focus is providing and facilitating space for connection with God, connection with ourselves and connection with each other.
Honour and Respect
Professional trauma-informed care for those experiencing intrusive emotional, psychological, social and or physical symptoms associated with past or present overwhelming or traumatic life events.
PROFESSIONAL MINISTRY SUPERVISION
Professional supervision for vocational ministry workers including pastors, chaplains, staff and volunteers. A safe space where the demands of ministry can be laid aside to allow for facilitated reflection and fresh perspectives.
A safe and authentic space for spiritual exploration and growth. A place where we welcome the presence of God, pray and reflect on scripture.
A safe and accepting space to gather and experience a sense of belonging and healing through personal growth courses.
Many people suffer trauma in their lives. Trauma is any event, series of events or environment that is experienced by an individual as physically or emotionally threatening and overwhelms their ability to cope. A traumatic event provokes overwhelming fear, hopelessness and helplessness, shattering the person’s understanding of the world around them. Trauma can leave a range of mild to debilitating effects on an individual’s day to day functioning, impacting psychological, emotional, physical, relational, and spiritual well-being.
Trauma-informed care considers the wide-spread effects of trauma in individuals and our community and focuses on offering unconditional acceptance, understanding and a felt sense of safety.
