For Clients

Life can be full of joy and wonder. But wholehearted living can also take us to our emotional limits, as we embrace the vulnerability of  love, loss, major life transitions (e.g., adolescence, parenthood, new jobs), relationship or family issues or health concerns.

As social creatures, our wellbeing is deeply connected with our capacity to share life’s joys and challenges with trusted others.

Each health practitioner at Holding Space:

  • Has a minimum of 10-years of experience in their field of expertise.
  • Is registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) to ensure national standards of practice are met.
  • Is a member of their appropriate professional body so practitioners stay up to date with Continuing Professional Development requirements and changes in their respective fields.
  • Holds their own professional indemnity insurance.

Perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with a mental health condition and you’d like to reduce the impact of this on your life?


Perhaps you consider yourself to be doing reasonably ok but want to learn how to feel or function better in pursuit of your goals?

In both cases, it can be helpful having a health professional’s knowledge and experience hold space for you to grow or free yourself up emotionally.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change

For Practitioners

We offer professional memberships for eligible health practitioners who share the conscious intentions of the Collective.

We believe that the healing work of health professionals is a vocation. And yet we cannot become who we are truly meant to be, unless we remain as dedicated to our personal lives, as we are to our professional lives.

As a Collective, we try to hold space for each other in pursuit of more time and energy for self-care, connection, growth, creativity, enjoyment and inspired action.

Do what you do best and focus on your patients by sharing costs, pooling resources and reducing the administrative burdens of running a private practice.

Depending on level of membership, Holding Space Health affiliates will have the option to access to:

  • An instant private practice
    • Powerdiary: a secure, cloud-based practice management software with an inbuilt Telehealth platform and templates to streamline all your administrative processes.
    • Biography on our designer website: allowing you to share your knowledge, skills and passions with your audience and potential referrers. Practitioners also save on the costs (e.g., website hosting fees), time and energy involved in developing and maintaining a website.
    • Personalised business email address with unlimited storage.
    • Virtual administration support with business phone number and email.
    • Virtual book-keeping support including invoicing, payment follow-up, Medicare claiming and payment summaries for BAS purposes.
    • Therapy rooms or co-working spaces at affiliate locations.
  • Regular peer supervision and the support of like-minded health professionals for emergency peer consults, personal leave coverage and referrals.
  • Professional development program with a focus on strengthening your capacities as a therapist.
  • Documentation of all CPD meetings and opportunities to help practitioners organise their records if audited.
  • Access to an online library of resources and workshops from renowned master therapists.

The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are.
