Why Choose Us?
Connection and relationships are at the heart of everything we do. We see, hear, and value you with no judgement and offer strength and belief in you and your healing journey.
We know “what happened to you?” is a much more powerful way of understanding distress and advancing healing than “what is wrong with you?” We understand that abnormal thoughts, feelings, and behaviours in response to abnormal events is a normal human experience.
Why We Are Different
ARC a 100% lived experience organisation and provides a range of NDIS supports, including Recovery Coaching, Peer Support and Counselling. We offer human connection and understanding to support the way you heal from mental and emotional distress.
Each person’s recovery journey is unique. We offer belief in your ability to heal because we ourselves have experienced the power of recovering through someone else’s belief in us. We work with you to make sense of your experiences, identify what you want to achieve and take steps towards this together.
What You Can Expect
You deserve the best support from your team – the kind of connection where they listen and take the time to understand your story as well as your hopes, dreams and aspirations. We’re here to offer you precisely that. Your first visit begins with us getting to know you, what your interests are and what you need to feel safe.
We’ll walk this journey together, sharing experiences, celebrating achievements, overcoming hurdles and moving forward on your healing journey.

The best way I can put it is I’m happy. Now that I have someone I trust entirely
I feel very happy and much more settled in the process and myself.”
I am very happy with the current people and have built good connections. I appreciate all the support and as a result, my life is much better than before. I look forward to seeing my ARC people and feeling better about having my house clean and having more good days.
Some days I felt like giving up, and ARC helped me understand and make sense of what was happening and helped me feel better about receiving support and letting people into my life.
