About Well Creative Minds

Well Creative Minds (WCM) offers bespoke psychosocial recovery coaching and support services for self-managed and plan-managed NDIS participants and their families who are experiencing unique mental health-related challenges or conditions that severely impacts them from living a fulfilling and meaningful life.

Well Creative Minds was founded by Tess Philip who in 2020 started working as an independent support worker & recovery coach while completing her psychology degree. Since then, WCM has grown organically through word of mouth into a team of highly-skilled, experienced & qualified individuals dedicated to providing a premium service that is as unique as the participants we support. 

Psychosocial Services


 We work collaboratively with the participant’s wider network of providers, support coordinators and allied health team to help participants feel empowered and supported as they achieve their goals that promote well-being, and personal development so they can live life to the full,  as independently as possible. Our services are individualised, flexible, evidence-based, holistic, and collaborative with a person-centred focus.

Well Creative Minds has been the pinnacle step in my own (mind illness dilemmas). I as an individual have blossomed. I have found that having a stable rapport with a particular person, as apposed to just variable workers from an agency has allowed my ability to settle. This further enhanced my ability to connect. Anxiety is a predominant factor in my disability. Well Creative Minds offered an opening with which I could choose to flourish, into deeper independence and confidence, sharing my discoveries into community once more. I have gained tremendously with Tess and her “Well Creative Minds”, and continue to feel the sense of hope, which has returned to my life, can stay. This, along with and within her continuing support through “Well Creative Minds” brings my future into a better light.. Thank you. Sincerely,  Marc.
