Attitudinal Healing Western Australia (Inc.) (AHWA) is an independent, not for profit, community service organisation registered as an Association under the Western Australian Associations Incorporation Act, 2015.

Attitudinal Healing Western Australia Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide educational and support services to the community in the greater Perth metropolitan area of Western Australia, using the Principles of Attitudinal Healing.

History of AHWA — Perth, Western Australia

Attitudinal Healing Western Australia (AHWA) was established in May 2010, separating from the Perth based Centre for Attitudinal Healing, to focus more exclusively on providing Attitudinal Healing education, training, support groups and programmes in the greater Perth metropolitan area of Western Australia.

The programmes are based on the principles of Attitudinal Healing and seek to assist individuals to choose and direct their lives in ways that give meaning and bring fulfilment to their relationships and life situations.

The programmes are mainly delivered from Attitudinal Healing Western Australia’s premises at 6 Hickey Street, Ardross, located in the greater Perth metropolitan area, although some are provided in other venues as appropriate.

Attitudinal Healing programmes are open to people from all traditions and cultural beliefs. They are offered in a supportive environment and allow participants to discover that as we learn to change our attitudes and change our minds, we change our lives.

Attitudinal Healing Western Australia is a volunteer organization and depends solely on the work and efforts of its members and volunteer friends. There are no paid positions. Membership of AHWA is open to all who are interested in living, and promoting, the benefits of Attitudinal Healing.

Attitudinal Healing Western Australia is affiliated with Attitudinal Healing International which was founded by Diane Cirincione and Jerry Jampolsky. Jerry was the founder of Attitudinal Healing and is a psychiatrist and author of a number of best selling books on Attitudinal Healing. These are available from the resources link of our website.

We welcome your support and attendance at any of our programmes!
