Cassie truly understands the ups and downs of being a carer. 

Cassie is one of the most inspiring mothers and women I know. She approaches life with a ‘let’s do this’ attitude and is always looking for ways to overcome life’s obstacles in a positive way which I really admire.

Cassie is dedicated to the wellbeing of her family as well as those around her. If you are looking for someone to guide you through the challenges of being a carer I would highly recommend Cassie. Not only is she empathic and knowledgeable, she truly understands the ups and downs of being a carer.

Cassie is a leader and role model. 

Cassie has not only had personal experiences in relation to challenging life events but her skill set from her vocational background blends with her role in delivering Carer’s Place. Cassie’s high level of organisation, accountability and confidentiality is always at the front of her mind when supporting others in need. Cassie helps to make it possible for others to find the power to go on and make things possible.

Cassie has supported me during the past ten years in many challenging life events. As a working mother of two children and a husband who suffers with a chronic back condition, she provides sound practical advice during complex situations in times when I’ve needed it the most.

Cassie has played a major role allowing me to express my uncertainty and in turn empowering me to cope and to move forward. What I appreciate most about Cassie is that she is a genuine person who blends her insight, experience, values and focuses on positive outcomes.

A lot of what I have learnt here will be very beneficial to maintaining a healthy mindset …

Cassie’s program [Overwhelm Antidote] helped me in my every day to day life. It helped me by showing me my strengths and weaknesses personally and professionally and in doing so helped me work toward bettering myself. I personally don’t believe you have to even be a carer to benefit from this program. There’s so much that is beneficial from a reflective standpoint to diet and exercise.

A lot of what I have learnt here will be very beneficial to maintaining a healthy mindset through my uni studies. I don’t recommend this to carers. I recommend this to everyone.

… this program helped me to manage my time, prioritise & not feel guilty for taking some time for myself

Before joining the [Overwhelm Antidote] program my life was busy and hectic and I never had any time for myself, this program helped me to manage my time, prioritise and not feel guilty for taking some time for myself.

I loved it! The support of the group was amazing!

Cassie is one of the most genuine, caring and helpful person I’ve had the pleasure of knowing

Cassie always knows, and says exactly what I need to hear when I need to hear it. I always turn to Cassie when I need advice or help, she is always so helpful and understanding. She has an amazing way with people and I am so glad that I have someone like her that I can talk too.

Cassie has an amazing way with words, she has really helped me through some tough times with her incredible knowledge, and her ability to help you get past them.

I believe Cassie is one of the most genuine, caring and helpful people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. Her understanding and knowledge of all things big and small is truly inspiring. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her, and she always gives the most honest advice followed up with continued support.

Cassie was extremely helpful when it came to explaining some of the hospital terminologies, procedures; what we could expect whilst in hospital.

During my daughter’s recent long stay in hospital Cassie was such a great support.

Often I felt overwhelmed by it all. She helped me make sense of hospital terminology, practices and procedures.  She was able to advise me of who to contact and what to expect. Not having had much to do with the hospital system before, I felt quite lost at times.

Having Cassie to talk to helped tremendously. Cassie understood what we were going through and was always there to listen to me and offer me advice.
