We have a heart to bring together and support communities who are in unique circumstances or who have specific needs or interests. We value community, and believe that providing a safe place for people to gather provides great opportunity to experience unconditional acceptance and belonging, allowing relational wounds to heal and a holistic transformation to occur. Programs and events will be advertised periodically.

Embracing Me 

‘Embracing Me’ is a 10-session program for women who are traversing the journey of healing and wholeness. Our heart is to see women find freedom from past or present traumatic or emotionally overwhelming life experiences so that they can be empowered to step into the future with renewed hope and courage.

With a focus on holistic, trauma-informed care, the sessions are one and a half hours long and are specifically designed to help women develop a healthy sense of self and confidence to engage in safe and healthy relationships. Each session consists of a time of learning, a time for personal reflection and group discussion.

The weekly topics are: Safe Connection, Self-compassion, Personality, Beliefs, Values, Parts of Me, Boundaries, Communication and Conflict, Shame and Guilt, and Grief and Loss.

Embracing Me is facilitated by Kerri Sweetman, Counsellor and Co-Founder of Siloam Wellness Centre, and Hannah Stringer, Unit Facilitator for the Diploma of Counselling Practice at AIPC.
Both Kerri and Hannah are qualified trauma-informed counsellors with a heart to see all women flourish. 

Our next program will begin in term 1, 2023

The cost is $30 per session and places are limited to ensure participants feel safe and valued.
To get the most from Embracing Me, we recommend that participants attend all 10 sessions. 
We meet at the Uniting Church in Ashgrove West.
