It’s revolutionary!

The Bare Hands Project was born out of the belief that if every woman has access to quality support and education that this will transform her future, the future of families and the future of communities. We believe that women at home, at work and in the community have amazing influence! We believe that women, and that includes you, need to feel valued in their many roles – as mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers and friends. We believe that the key to feeling valued is connecting with others in relationships that are sustainable.

Bare Hands is raising a revolution of women who dare to believe in a better future for themselves and their families, who care enough to be the change they want to see and who are willing to share themselves authentically to make a difference.

How I wish the Bare Hands crew had been around when I was a young mother! Their program is a distillation of the latest research, their own experience as mothers and the work they have done with clients. They bring it all together in a fun, friendly and warm way and best of all, in a way that values you for who you are and what you are trying to achieve.

Four months after attending the workshop you can rest assured, I am still using many of the strategies I learned and I must say, life is pretty bloody good at the moment. Gary and I are communicating so much better and he is really trying to open up. YAYYY!!!!
I just wanted to let you know how much i enjoyed last night’s talk, it was very informative and just to feel and know that i was not alone going through all these emotions as a mother and a wife. I had a great time and it was so nice to actually have an open minded conversation afterwards with some of the mothers there in my daughter’s kindy group who i wouldn’t actually be brave enough to have these conversation with them on a daily basis when i drop my daughter to kindy. Thanks again
Calmer, more positive attitude. I feel the strategies offered through the Bare Hands Project are ones that can be utilised to excellent effect by almost anybody.
I’ve gained self awareness and knowledge. Brilliant skills to resolve issues, anything that arises. The workshops were practical, real, soul-supporting and life saving.
I gained understanding of relationships, communication skills and keeping it ‘real’. This (Bare Hands Project) is a partnership between women who want the best out of life for themselves and the people they love. I enjoyed every session.
Trust Bare Hands to help you. It’s a very worthwhile experience and I highly recommend you give it a try. It can be life changing, but at the very least you will come away feeling uplifted and more positive.
I gained a sisterhood – feeling of community, belonging to a group of like-minded women. Empathy, compassion, non-judgemental attitudes. It was a wonderful experience – thank you!
