"We create safe spaces for neurodivergents and their families to be, and love, their authentic self through 'Authenticity Architecture'©  "
- Tan ♡

Welcome to our Neurodivergent Empowerment Wellness Service, a proud recipient of the 2023 Provider Award at the ND/Autistic Excellence Awards.

As an experienced Neurodivergent-Affirming Counsellor, Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Neuro-Linguistic Programmer for over 11 years, my journey has been enriched by my role as a mother to an incredible neurodivergent child and my personal experience with AuDHD. Through this combination of knowledge and experience, I discovered the need for a safe space where my clients could truly be themselves, find solace for their nervous systems, and embrace their authentic selves.

In a world where conventional norms often overshadow the beauty of neurodivergence, my mission is clear - to provide a sanctuary where neurodivergent individuals can embrace their true selves, find serenity for their nervous systems, and explore their authenticity through holistic well-being.

For many of us who grew up in an era when neurodivergence was widely misunderstood, accepting our identity can be a formidable challenge, especially after our children are diagnosed. My passion is firmly rooted in supporting my generation and those who come after us, often overlooked and unsupported, as they embark on the journey of self-acceptance and self-love.

Thus, I shifted my focus to create our 'Nest,' a safe space for fellow Neurodivergent Phoenixes. Safety and connection are our foremost concerns, and every person must feel secure in being their authentic selves within our Nest or when engaging with our team members (all of whom are neurodivergent). We work closely with parents, therapists, and support workers during the transition process, ensuring a compatible fit for everyone's comfort.

At the heart of our philosophy is the belief that neurodivergents deserve profound acceptance and love for who they are. We prioritise their well-being by fostering connections with like-minded neurodivergents who share similar interests, recognising the transformative power of these relationships and the potential risks that come with isolation.

Our unique approach extends to our Neurodivergent Leader Program, where each member operates as their own 'mini business,' while I handle the back office tasks that might pose challenges alone.  Our Neurodivergent Mentors and Wolfpack Leaders are all neurodivergent individuals who have risen from adversities, undergoing ongoing neurodivergent-affirming professional development. They work in collaboration with each clients' therapists such as OT's, Speech Therapists, Psychologists, Art Therapists, and other NDIS-related therapists to support our clients in reaching their goals, and they now carry the metaphorical buckets of water for those following in their footsteps.

Together, we empower our neurodivergent clients and their families through Friendship Programs, Online Programs, Fire Circles, and 1:1 Neurodivergent Mentoring Programs, fostering a profound connection with their unique selves.

This is not merely a profession; it's an unwavering commitment that fuels us each day. You are not just welcome here; you are celebrated here ♡

'Water Carrier' Tan

Neurodivergent-Affirming Counsellor, Clinical Hypnotist & CEO

A Bit About Me

Step into my world! I proudly embrace my identity as a late-diagnosed Neurodivergent Woman and a dedicated mother of an incredible Neurodivergent child.

My journey has been a whirlwind of achievements. From excelling in National Management Positions, to running successful Therapy businesses, I've always been driven to excel. I've also had the privilege of playing hockey for Australia Country, honing my skills on the international stage.

For the past 12 years, I've been a Mastery Clinical Hypnotist and Mastery Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner, specialising in the Mind-Body Connection. Running successful Mind Empowerment Businesses as an Alternative Health Provider has been my passion for over a decade.

However, amidst these achievements, I've faced the challenges of not receiving the right support for my neurodivergent brain's needs, especially as a Single Mother and Carer. Witnessing the struggles of other Neurodivergent adults in accessing proper care and support has ignited my passion to be a 'Water Carrier' for those following in my footsteps. This commitment earned me the 2022 Sunshine Coast Community Gala Award for Emerging Community Leader, the 2023 Provider of the Year award at the ND & Autistic Excellence Awards, and the Inclusion Award at the 2023 Sunshine Coast Community Gala Award.

My Vision is to empower Neurodivergent children, teens, and adults with self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-confidence, and self-love. I strive to create a safe space where masks can be shed, allowing authentic happiness to flourish. Each team member is carefully selected, and their personal experiences as Neurodivergent adults make them instrumental in fulfilling this vision.

Moreover, my Vision extends to empowering Families with the same self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-confidence, and self-love. I believe this nurturing connection to their authentic selves is pivotal to their well-being and positively impacts their loved ones and the community.

On a lighter note, here's a Fun Fact about me - I incorporate daily ice-baths and sauna sessions into my self-care and empowerment routine. It helps me stay grounded and focused.

When I'm not empowering and advocating, you'll find me indulging in hobbies like yoga, beach activities, Stand-up Paddle-boarding, and even some Burlesque dancing 🙈. As a devoted mother to my son and our beloved Cat, Pickles 💖💖, I also try my hand at surfing (with varied success!).

Welcome to a space where empowerment, self-love, and authenticity thrive! Together, we'll celebrate Neurodivergent excellence. 🌟
