Healing Waters Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Counselling and Wellbeing Service is being established to address the trauma experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Townsville region through a whole-of-life healing process. With an ongoing strong commitment to social justice, self-determination and culturally sound healing practices, we aim to establish a service that works towards breaking the cycle of trans-generational trauma, grief and loss that affects the daily lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their families in our community. This includes particular support to Stolen Generation survivors and their families through their healing journey. Through ongoing intensive community consultation, we aim to establish a safe private, confidential and culturally appropriate healing service. This service will allow clients to work through issues in their lives and through appropriate professional practice and healing styles, be empowered to identify solutions that will lead them on a path of healthier, stronger and fulfilling lives.
