A health, wellbeing and performance psychology community in Melbourne, Australia.
Let’s live with meaning.
The Mind Room is a community of psychologists, wellbeing and performance professionals, mindfulness facilitators, and other friendly and wise people.
We’re here to help you find health, meaning and purpose.
We first started The Mind Room as a labour of love in 2012. We wanted to create an experience that normalised and celebrated mental health and wellbeing. Our intent was to become part of the local fabric, become a neighbourhood staple of sorts. We call Collingwood, Victoria home.
Today we are immersed in a range of local and national initiatives. Our collaborations have spanned beyond the beautiful graffiti’d walls of Collingwood, into communities across Australia. These are some of the amazing people we’re proud to have worked and continue to partner with.
Do you have ideas about how we can collaborate or work together? Please let us know! We’d love to hear all about it.
In a busy work day where I feel like I’m stretched thin between so many people and tasks, the Mindfulness Drop-In class helps me to slow down, regroup and touch base with myself. I found the sessions to be accessible and grounding. I felt like I was in my own space even though I was in a room with four or five others.

After initially experiencing a two hour Mindfulness Workshop put on by The Mind Room at a business retreat I was keen to explore the advantages of introducing Mindfulness into our workplace to improve the quality of our work/life. As a result we developed a six session program to introduce Mindfulness into our Creative Agency. The sessions and ensuing skills and experiences gained individually and collectively have led to a much cherished and valued ongoing program that has been adopted by the staff. The result is both a positive element of our culture program, and a critical pressure valve for the day-to-day stress of our industry.

Fantastic insight and teaching of meditative practices combined with a friendly and welcoming environment.
Emil Ware, Attendee of Mindfulness Drop-in Class
Really valuable class, even if you've done a bit of ACT work already. Danica is a great facilitator and the Mind Room workshop space is wonderful! If this stuff was taught in primary school it would prevent a lot of suffering. 10/10 would recommend for anyone wanting to level up their self compassion game.
Kelly Watts, Attendee of Self-Compassion Workshop
I found the series of workshops very practical and easy to follow. The tips and exercises we went through were straight forward to replicate and I found the impact very beneficial to my stress levels at work. I think this program should be a part of every workplace.
