There’s a difference between recovery and recovering. Recovering signals a destination, whilst the term recovery signals a process and state of mind. Curious to know more?


What does recovery coaching really mean?

We believe that people can improve when they set clear and achievable goals.

Your recovery coach helps you identify your needs and aspirations and walks alongside you as you achieve your goals. Bridges can help you apply for recovery coaching support. And, map the way you’ve chosen to go forward. Bridges staff have professional qualifications in mental health, disability, and community services. Our recovery coaches also have training in recovery-oriented practice and self-determination.

What is personal medicine?

Bridges offers unique, specialised services through our Certified Personal Medicine Coaches.

Personal medicine comes from within. It’s not medication that you take. This means that there are endless options and pathways forward: they’re not prescribed, they are personal to you. Bridges doesn’t take your opportunity for growth lightly. Your starting point will depend on what you want to achieve. We’re ready when you are.

The Bridges approach to recovery coaching:

Bridges is accredited against the NDIS Practice Standards. We can help to meet your individual needs through a high quality, personalised service.

We understand that everyone’s path is different, and sometimes things just aren’t quite right. We walk beside people on their journey and assist them to live their best life.

Bridges is culturally sensitive and has Indigenous cultural support workers available.
