The Shoalhaven is more than just a locality; it's a tapestry of vibrant communities, breath-taking landscapes, and incredible individuals. However, recent events, whether natural disasters, COVID, interest rates or fuel prices, the cost of living has shaken our paradise, affecting countless lives and disrupting the essence of what makes us a community.
We are fundraising to create a safe space for our community members—a haven where they can heal, reconnect, and rebuild. This space will be more than just a physical location; it will be a symbol of our collective resilience, our determination to bounce back, and our unbreakable spirit.
Hello, I'm Travis Ford, a proud resident of the Shoalhaven region and the owner of the Catharsis Society, the mental health specialists of the Shoalhaven.
This cause is close to my heart because the Shoalhaven has given me memories, friendships, and experiences that are irreplaceable. It's now our turn to give back, ensuring that the more vulnerable Shoalhaven residents feel supported, heard, and loved.
Join us in weaving the fabric of our community back together. Your donation, no matter how big or small, will make a world of difference to your community.
Together, let's give the Shoalhaven a safe space to heal.
Every cent raised will go directly towards:
1. Infrastructure: Moving to larger office space equipped with resources for mental and emotional healing.
2. Programs: Initiating community outreach and healing programs, workshops on trauma relief, and activities that bring the community closer.
3. Support: Providing safe and affordable relief to those most affected, be it through counselling services, personal assistance, or essential supplies.
We are so proud to showcase the Must Agapè Seal. This certification means that we are among the handful of professionals that are trained in Strategic Interpersonal Action (SIA)
I am a registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Nowra providing counselling and therapy for adults, children and adolescents.
My role as your Psychotherapist is to focus on assisting you to explore and understand aspects of yourself and experience. I assist you to understand how past experiences influence and shape your current responses to life events. The focus is on the here and now, the past simply provides the platform for understanding.
Wow!!!! Isn’t this Fantastic. So proud
Clients often ask me
“Trav, how do you do it! How do you listen to all of these terrible stories”

I am gifted everyday by being in the presence of such beautiful people. You are all champions in my book.
