Who We Are
Yamurrah hosts a number of contractors who are Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal trained in either psychology, social work or law. This combined creates a professional service that is trauma-informed and guided by Aboriginal worldviews and Aboriginal healing frameworks. We value culture and connections. We are able to deliver workshops and events specific to the needs of a service or a community.
Yamurrah can provide guidance on planning and development, strategic planning or review and evaluate programs and services. We are interested in connecting with you.
This deadly team is collectively supporting you in your well-being and self-care. “We believe culture and reconnecting with culture will elevate you both culturally, spiritually, physically and intellectually”.
Yamurrah is bounded by ethical standards including confidentiality, cultural safety, professional and social justice.
Reciprocity – a mutual exchange of clinical, give back when you receive. The business ethos is contributing to giving back. Deconstruction of power – removing the hierarchy of power. Mutual relationship.
Empowerment – we believe in the empowerment of the individual and the collective. Our recovery techniques are immersed in working in a way to help you re-connect and feel re-empowered.
Connection – central to our Aboriginal worldviews, the core purpose of our existence is a connection. Our ways of working with recovery look at connection and re-connection with country kind ships relationships and culture we work in an intimate and connective way with our people.
