Strong mind, strong heart, strong life!

Shift your children’s mind into learning how to thrive in todays fast paced world by learning our core confidence, self esteem and resilience principles.


Building confidence, self-esteem & resilience in our children.

Mind Shift Project was founded through a need of  support for my own child. As he started school I could see all the dificlties I had growing up surfacing for him. I struggled through friendships difficulties, had  low confidence and was unable to stick up for myself, I didnt feel I had a voice or anything good to say and put others happiness before my own. This lead to many ups and downs through both primary and hgh school as I thought I was the only one who felt like that. What I know now is that all kids feel like this at some stage in their life and with the support of a trusted adult and a group of peers who share their feelings and experiences there is the opportunity to feel  accepted and that everything is normal.


Raising empowered children

Mind Shift Project is a Licencee of Standing Strong Clubs and is bringing their Oprah endorsed programs to the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Our Standing Strong programs are designed to help young people and families by supporting them through the ups and downs of life. 

Standing Strong is a unique program designed to work with parents and communities to help educate, motivate, and inspire kids to really live to their true potential.

Through our team of health and wellness specialists including counselors and psychologists, fitness, yoga and meditation instructors, as well as our team of trained mentors, we take a positive, uplifting and non-clinical approach to supporting and empowering kids and families.
