Strong mind, strong heart, strong life!

Shift your children’s mind into learning how to thrive in todays fast paced world by learning our core confidence, self esteem and resilience principles.


Building confidence, self-esteem & resilience in our children.

Calm Mind Hub was founded through a need of  support for my own child. As he started school I could see all the difficulties I had growing up surfacing for him. I struggled through friendships difficulties, had  low confidence and was unable to stick up for myself, I didnt feel I had a voice or anything good to say and put others happiness before my own. This lead to many ups and downs through both primary and high school as I thought I was the only one who felt like that.

What I know now is that all kids feel like this at some stage in their life and with the support of a trusted adult and a group of peers who share their feelings and experiences there is the opportunity to feel  accepted and that everything is normal.


Raising empowered children

Calm Mind Hub is a Licencee of Standing Strong Clubs and runs their Oprah endorsed programs to the Northern Beaches of Sydney. Standing Strong programs are designed to help young people and families by supporting them through the ups and downs of life.

Everyone is accepted here

As parents, we spend our whole lives doing everything we can to raise our children to be happy, confident and strong. We protect them, nurture them, encourage them and support them. We help them to believe in themselves and be proud of who they are. We love them more than anything and do everything we can to give them the best start to life.

Then just when we think we can take a breath, we notice something is different. We notice they’re not smiling as much as they use to. We see their confidence has started to fall. We notice them withdrawing from things they love and having troubles with friends and school. We hear them become negative about themeless and judgemental of others. And for some of us, we notice as they go quiet. Very quiet.

At Standing Strong we are the support system for both children and parents. We are the place to turn to when you don’t know where to go. Since 2018, Calm Mind Hub has been supporting and empowering hundreds of children, teenager and parents through face to face programs. We are the shoulder for you to lean on and the community of support you and your family are looking for.

Our Standing Strong programs take a non-clinical and holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Through our evidence based programs, children not only learn how to improve confidence, self esteem and resilience, they also feel uplifted and empowered by a culture of kindness and support.
