All therapeutic services are donated to the Institute so that no one is unable to access early and vital support to empower their healing.

Sexual trauma is the silent epidemic.

ABOUT KIM MCARTHUR

Kim McArthur is a mother, activist, survivor and award winning business owner. She is dedicated to making women feel safe and supported and advocates for cultural and political change that benefits survivors mentally, emotionally and financially.

As a survivor of childhood, teenage and adult trauma she is passionate about helping women find their voice and making children and women feel seen, heard, believed and protected.

Being late diagnosed ADHD and a recovering hyper-vigilant people-pleasing perfectionist makes her incredibly empathetic, driven and detailed in all aspects of her life. She is fun and funny, engaging, entrepreneurial, complex, kind and generally over-dressed for any situation!

She grew up in Tasmania with 5 sisters and has lived in Jamaica before relocating (ran away to) Wagga Wagga before eventually moving to the south coast of NSW where she resides with her husband and 4 incredible daughters - her life and work is all for them.
