What others have to say about us:

I felt less alone and am very grateful to have been gifted this training course to learn and practice personal skills in wellbeing. Having Angela facilitate the online group also gives me a greater sense of purpose and a safe space to connect with others. I don’t know how I would’ve got through this challenging year without my Wellness Within and ASWA.
Lauren Adams
Our environment is fast paced and ever changing so employee wellbeing is key to having a productive and engaged team. ASWA’s training programs provide practical techniques and tips to support me and my team.
Melissa Blanks

ASWA’s Wellness Within program provides the tools, techniques and support for team members to take control of their own wellbeing.
Michael Blackburn
Business Development Manager, Data Services Group
I was quite surprised by my initial results from the ASWA Wellness Tracker. I scored lowest in Sleep and I had always thought of myself as a great sleeper! After studying the topic on sleep in my course, I realised that although I was able to sleep easily and undisturbed, I didn’t have a good sleep routine. The tracker allowed me to set myself up with a good sleep routine and I no longer feel like I need a nap.

I've enrolled in your Wellness Within Program today and I've just finished the Wellness Tracker, which I thought was spot on in terms of the results and how it is illustrated ... great work. Looking forward to continuing the program!

We wanted to roll out a useful and supportive Wellbeing Program for our team. I am also interested in increasing my own wellbeing and leading by example with my team. These positive impacts will also have a flow on effect from our staff, to their own families and also onto our students. I highly recommend the ASWA team and programs.
Paulette Scaife
Team and Culture Leader – Silkwood School
As a people Manager, what I like about this program is that it’s a great proactive option for me to support the wellbeing of my team as well as adding to their professional knowledge base of introductory wellness skills. It is practical, is based on evidence, and encourages self-accountability. It starts as our onboarding program that continues throughout the year as part of the company wellness ethos. My team know that I value them and some team members have gone on to enrol in the Diploma of Wellness - adding to their professional skill set.
Katie McDonald
Wellness and Spa Director, ASWA Corporate Programs client
My Wellness Within program gave me the life skills, inner calm, confidence and support I needed. It is highly practical and effective. I would highly recommend Wellness Within for anybody feeling ‘stuck’ and/or overwhelmed with stress.
Melanie Norman
Wellness Within participant
The reason this program is so good is that it gives people the opportunity to be leaders of their own lives by providing the opportunity to stand back, in a safe and comfortable space, and reflect on what’s going on for them and what they want and need. It allows a pathway for those ‘aha’ moments. Progression and transformation is amazingly quick. We can see the benefits in a measured way with the ASWA Wellness Tracker and most importantly, we can see it physically and mentally, and that’s really satisfying.
