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 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.

Recovery Coaching

Qualified & experienced mental health professionals

Our recovery coaches are  qualified mental health professionals (with years of NDIS experience including lived experience) who work directly with you or in collaboration with your nominated support coordinator. They will meet with you or check in with you on a regular, often weekly basis.

Like support coordinators, recovery coaches know all about the NDIS, and will help you navigate your plan and ensure you are getting the most out of it, and help build your network of supports & services. They can also assist you with NDIS reviews,  problem-solve and manage unexpected situations.

But recovery coaches are ALSO recovery practitioners, with specialist knowledge, skills and experience in working in a way that supports people with psychosocial disability and mental illness to live as empowered individuals and build a life that’s not defined by their diagnosis.  ​

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.
