As a Specialist Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Psychology & Counselling service, Wakai Waian Healing acknowledges the unique historical context of the current lived experiences of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people. As a service that supports healing, we acknowledge and show respect for the inherent cultural strengths that ultimately support the survival, progress & growth of individuals, families & communities. In support of healing, our organisation encourages the promotion of cultural origins, and unity within / across Indigenous peoples.
Wakai Waian Healing respects the uniqueness of individual and collective experiences for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. We accept that “healing,” and how it is achieved, may vary from person to person. It is our goal to lead and join others to inspire, enable and facilitate Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples, to achieve long lasting positive & productive changes to wellbeing into the future. In support of this, Wakai Waian Healing maintains a strong focus on prevention and early intervention initiatives.
