“It has been the best thing I have done with stepping out and having Cassie as my wellness coach! She has been amazing with all my struggles because they are by far the simplest things to work with but she has got it, she understands were all different and she works with you to find what best suits you and while doing that she also genuinely cares and wants to help.”

Kelly, Chronic Illness Sufferer

“Cassie provides an amazingly positive environment for carers of all sorts of illnesses and disabilities. A safe place to let go of all the failures and celebrate all the triumphant times, too. Many support groups tend to harbour lots of negativity because basically, everyone is having a rough time, however, Cassie always finds a way to make sure that you leave feeling uplifted, cared for, and also helps you see that a failure is really your success. “

Theonie, Carer & Mother

“I recommend everyone who feels that overwhelm and the guilt and the horrible drained feeling can benefit from your wisdom and see huge changes in their lives! The way you broke it all down into bite-size pieces makes it SOOOO much easier to deal with!”

Melissa, Carer

“Cassie has been an amazing support during a tough time with my youngest. She always gives great advice and strategies to help me deal with difficult situations! Thank you Cassie – you changed our lives for the better!”

Allison, Carer & Mother

“Cassie’s program 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.”

Steve, Father

“Before joining the 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!”

Danielle, Mother & Carer

“This programme has an abundance of information and being able to share information with others in the other group has been invaluable!”

Liz, Mother & Carer

Are you a parent or carer who …

» is tired and lethargic;

» feels alone and isolated; 

» struggles to ask for, and accept help;

» finds it hard to talk to people about your problems; and 

» is overwhelmed and wants more from life?!

Would you like to …

» have people to talk to who get you and where you are at;

» feel as though your fears, thoughts and voice is heard;

» feel more energetic and better able to get through your day;

» like you have more enjoyment and fun in your life; and

» that you’re better able to deal with the tough stuff that comes your way?!

I’m so glad you are here because now you can:

  • Feel supported by people who get you and who have trodden a similar path to you;

  • Learn new ways to look after yourself without taking from those you care for;

  • Join a community who genuinely want to help in a positive and purposeful way; 
  • Be part of a community, your community, and freely share your thoughts, feelings and problems without fear of ridicule, judgement and misunderstanding; and 

  • Finally know you aren’t alone anymore!

Hello and a warm welcome to you!

I am Cassie, the founder of The Carers Place AND I get it!

I am a mum of two teenage boys and have been a carer for my eldest son Matthew for over 15 years.  For many years, I experienced extreme loneliness, overwhelm, burnout, isolation and neglected to place a priority on my own health and well-being.  My drive in life was to give the best to my boys, but I didn’t realise it started with me.  This lifestyle was a disastrous recipe which left me in the hospital unable to look after my own children.  It was not something I would wish on anyone.  Eventually, I made many lifestyle changes and overtime reclaimed my life.  

In doing that, my children and those around me experienced better health, happiness, fulfilment and connection as a result.

Today, I am a professional in the health & wellness industry and have been for over 5 years. I am fiercely passionate about providing support and an inclusive positive community for carers (like you!) to connect and live their happiest lives.  Why?  Because we all deserve the kindness, compassion and success that we would have for our loved ones!

The Carers Place focuses on providing products and services that support positive Physical, Mental & Emotional Health including:

RELATIONSHIPS | NUTRITION | MANAGING STRESS | SELF-AWARENESS | COMMUNICATION | LIFESTYLE

PEER SUPPORT | ADVOCACY |  MOVEMENT/FITNESS | ORGANISATION | CONNECTION | MINDFULNESS & MINDSET

Join me as I bring a community of parents and carers together who provide support, guidance, love and understanding to one another…. because they get it!

Testimonials

“I believe Cassie is one of the most genuine, caring and helpful person 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 has been an amazing support during a tough time with my youngest. She always gives great advice and strategies to help me deal with difficult situations! Thanks Cassie – you changed our lives for the better!”
Allison, Mother of two
During my daughters recent stay in hospital Cassie was such a great support. Not having had much to do with the hospital system before, at times I felt quite lost overwhelmed by it all. Having Cassie to talk to helped tremendously, especially when it came to explaining some of the hospital terminologies, procedures and explaining what we could expect whilst in hospital. Cassie understood what we were going through and was always there to listen to me.

Cassie provides an amazingly positive environment for carers of all sorts of illnesses and disabilities. A safe place to let go of all the failures and celebrate all the triumphant times, too. Many support groups tend to harbour lots of negativity because basically, everyone is having a rough time, however Cassie always finds a way to make sure that you leave feeling uplifted, cared for, and also helps you see that a failure is really your success.
