The TLC work­shop in­ten­sive is a 3-day per­son­alised ther­apy group for fe­male sur­vivors of child sex­ual abuse. TLC will show you a path to heal­ing & free­dom from child­hood emo­tional & sex­ual trauma. If you have the courage to face your past, & put an end to its power over you as an adult in a safe & car­ing en­vi­ron­ment, this work­shop will open that door for you. Led by renowned health & foren­sic psy­chol­o­gist Dianne Per­ret­tAbra­hamsm & based on the ground­break­ing foun­da­tions of in­ner child ther­apy de­vel­oped by John Brad­shaw, our spe­cial­ist fe­male psy­chol­o­gists & sup­port staff will lead you safely onto a path of heal­ing & re­cov­ery. You will learn how to cham­pion your­self in a nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment. This will em­power you to face the fu­ture with other sur­vivors & a strong net­work; you will re­ceive spe­cial­ist coun­selling & di­rec­tion through on­go­ing re­fer­ral. You are no longer alone. It takes courage to heal, re­cover & change; we will help you fa­cil­i­tate that process. Nu­tri­tional chef-pre­pared meals & snacks will be pro­vided. In your own bed­room, you will be housed in self-con­tained cab­ins nes­tled against the back­drop of the Grampians Na­tional Park in Halls Gap Vic­to­ria. The only things to bring are cloth­ing, per­sonal ef­fects, will­ing­ness, & courage. Ses­sions start at 8am, with for­mal pro­cesses con­clud­ing at 5pm. Fol­low­ing din­ners, the pro­gram con­tin­ues from 7 – 9pm. The clin­i­cal pro­gram is ac­com­pa­nied with struc­tured walks into the Grampians & spir­i­tual harp ther­apy. Sur­vival is no longer an op­tion; it’s time to start liv­ing on a re­cov­ery path.

*Sur­vivors of child sex­ual abuse of­ten bury & con­ceal their ex­pe­ri­ences, in many cases for decades. *An in­creased rate of both sui­cide & at­tempted sui­cide are associated with child­hood trauma, par­tic­u­larly child sex­ual abuse (Aus­tralian Bureau of Statis­tics, 2010). A 2010 study in the Med­i­cal Jour­nal of Aus­tralia found sig­nif­i­cantly higher rates of sui­cide & ac­ci­den­tal fa­tal drug over­dose in the CSA group com­pared to na­tional data for the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion (M Cu­ta­jar, 2010). *An ad­verse child­hood ex­pe­ri­ences study in the US iden­ti­fied that adults who have ex­pe­ri­enced four or more ad­verse child­hood ex­pe­ri­ences are 12 times more likely to have at­tempted sui­cide than those who have not ex­pe­ri­enced any forms of child­hood trauma or abuse (Felitti, et al., 1998).

This is a se­ri­ous is­sue in Aus­tralia

There is now lit­tle doubt about the re­la­tion­ship between child­hood abuse & psy­cho­log­i­cal prob­lems as an adult. A study by Colom­bia Univer­sity has re­vealed that 40% of those ex­pe­ri­enc­ing chronic de­pres­sion for at least five years had ex­pe­ri­enced child sex­ual abuse. The com­plex trauma of ad­verse child­hood ex­pe­ri­ences is now recog­nised to be par­tic­u­larly dam­ag­ing be­cause the brain is un­der­go­ing crit­i­cal early de­vel­op­ment. Ac­cord­ing to NSW Health (1998), sur­vivors of child sex­ual abuse ac­counted for 34% of all pre­sen­ta­tions across the men­tal health sec­tor in 1998. Sur­vivors of child sex­ual abuse con­sti­tute the great­est num­ber of women re­quest­ing services both from the public and pri­vate men­tal health sec­tors (Hen­der­son, 2006). Sur­vivors of­ten adopt the fol­low­ing be­hav­iours: *Be­ing over­weight or obese *Smok­ing *Al­co­hol & drug abuse *Poor diet & nu­tri­tion *Lack of phys­i­cal ex­er­cise With in­ter­ven­tion – ap­pro­pri­ate sup­port, spe­cial­ist treat­ment & trauma-in­formed prac­tice in­ter­ven­tions – adult sur­vivors of child sex­ual abuse can lead healthy, pos­i­tive, & pro­duc­tive lives. Their chil­dren, too, will ben­e­fit, be­cause the res­o­lu­tion of trauma in par­ents in­ter­cepts its trans­mis­sion to the next gen­er­a­tion. You will bare wit­ness to that fact dur­ing the TLC work­shop.


Eco-heal­ing is about heal­ing our­selves, com­mu­ni­ties and en­vi­ron­ments by dis­solv­ing sep­a­ra­tion and open­ing into wild flow, ease and con­nec­tion. In places of ex­tra­or­di­nary nat­u­ral beauty, pro­found in­spi­ra­tion and im­por­tant di­ver­sity, such as Tas­ma­nia’s Tarkine wilder­ness and the Kim­ber­ley wilder­ness, we ad­ven­ture in deep com­mu­nity, ex­plor­ing well be­yond the sur­face. Im­mersed in vis­ual beauty, fresh air, space and the web of life, we open our­selves and our hearts, strength­en­ing our con­nec­tions with all be­ings and the spirit of coun­try. Fa­cil­i­tated by ex­pe­ri­enced male and fe­male fa­cil­i­ta­tors and usu­ally with in­put from lo­cal in­dige­nous peo­ple. Deep ecol­ogy, heal­ing ecol­ogy and sa­cred ecol­ogy in­formed by shamanic prac­tices help us con­nect in all kinds of sig­nif­i­cant and life-chang­ing ways. We warmly in­vite you to these eco-heal­ing re­treats as a way for­ward.

“Health de­pends on be­ing in har­mony with our soul” [Su­san Gianevsky, Dip Hom, B.ED, ITF’86] I be­lieve that Bach Flow­ers are even more rel­e­vant to­day than ever be­fore. We are so bom­barded with health pills claim­ing to be the new panacea for ev­ery­thing, from slim­ming to slow­ing the age­ing cy­cle, that we have for­got­ten the im­por­tance of the key ingredient to a happy & healthy self: a bal­anced emo­tional self that en­joys a pos­i­tive out­look. Dr. Bach spent many years fine tun­ing the 38 reme­dies so that they fit­ted into cat­e­gories that are still rel­e­vant to peo­ple all around the world to­day, bring­ing in­ter­nal com­fort, bal­ance, un­der­stand­ing & soul har­mony that cre­ates our pos­i­tive im­print for the fu­ture.

A huge net­work of light is be­ing cre­ated on the soul plane, and it is grow­ing all the time.

All that is needed is the de­sire to serve.
