Connecting the world through the power of experience

Amend  is a self-development movement...


Connecting the world through the power of experience.  


We believe life should be lived to the fullest, and that everyone has the right to experience life without limitations. We believe that everyone has the potential for greatness. Our aim is to empower as many people as possible unlock their potential and live their best lives.

Amend was founded in 2019 with the objective to improve as many lives as possible by overcoming generational trauma, releasing limiting beliefs, and rewriting the narrative of what it means to be strong in today's society. Having lived through our own trauma we used our life experiences and professional knowledge to create programs to help guide, support, and demonstrate change.

We knew that in order to create the life of our choosing, a life we designed, we needed a better understanding of ourselves. We knew that healing was our responsibility because if we wanted our lives to be different, sitting and waiting for someone else to make them so, wasn't going to change it.

This involved analysing behaviours, tracking their root causes, and bringing healing to the past. We believe in a life without limits and we want you to, too. That's why we created a movement, connecting people through powerful experiences around the world.

The Amend Vision & Values


At Amend we envision a future in which our work has a beneficial impact on the entire community, resulting in the creation of a community-wide attitude of acceptance and support for all, promoting individual and community well-being. The impact of our work will provide opportunities for individuals from outside our community to learn our approach and share the positive outcomes in their own communities, with Australia-wide and worldwide implications for wellbeing, connection, and the removal of mental health stigma.

To foster generations of connected individuals, families, and communities
To create happy, healthy, and hungry humans
To inspire, motivate and encourage and educate
