HELLO AND WELCOME!
Hi I’m Kim, thank you for visiting!
I’d love to share a little bit about Standing Strong with you…
The dream for Standing Strong was to create a place where children could go to feel uplifted, inspired and supported, throughout the challenges and triumphs of growing up.
The first idea for Standing Strong came in 2000, after going through my own struggles as a teenager. A few months after graduating high school, a chance encounter with a young girl helped me realise I wasn’t the only one who was struggling.
That encounter ignited a dream to create a safe place where children could share their feelings without being judged. A place where they could let their guard down, feel heard and understood, while also being inspired to take charge of their lives.
Today, as a mum of two young boys, I see Standing Strong through my ‘Mumma Bear’ eyes. I understand the importance of having a place like Standing Strong for our children. My goal is to continue building Standing Strong as a support network and community of strength for families to lean on, throughout the life changing journey of raising children.

At Standing Strong we take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Our programs include:
Strong Mind – mindset | Strong Body – movement |
Strong Heart – mindfulness.
At Standing Strong our unique programs and services are designed to work with parents and communities to help educate, motivate, and inspire children to live to their full potential. Through our team of health and wellness specialists, we take a positive, uplifting and non-clinical approach to supporting and empowering children and families.
Through our Strong Mind, Strong Body, Strong Heart classes children learn how to improve their confidence and self-esteem, build inner-strength and self-belief, grow friendships, improve their health and body-image, manage stress and gain the tools essential for living happy, healthy and inspired lives.
Mental health is the single greatest health crisis facing teens and families today. Depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and poor body-image are at the forefront of this crisis.
Our unique classes encourage children and teens to develop the mindsets and skills known to prevent social and health issues including depression, anxiety, stress, disconnection and lack of motivation and drive. At Standing Strong, all children are accepted, encouraged and celebrated for their individuality and uniqueness by our specialised team and fellow Standing Strong members.
Through the support and accessibility of our ongoing programs, parents can feel reassured knowing they are not alone and are being supported by a heart centred team, as the saying goes- “It takes a Village to raise a child”.
Through face to face and online programs, our purpose is to provide families and communities with affordable, professional and inclusive services that help to equip children with the confidence, connection and support needed to face the world Standing Strong!
