At the heart of Koru is a passionate belief that there is hope for all of us for healing, transformation and change.
The strong relationships between our therapists and the young people who come to us, enables them over time to form roots, to grow, to ignite the embers of creative passions and give them the confidence to explore them, empowering them to recognise they can choose to grow and heal.
Koru believes, just like the African philosophy of Ubuntu “I am because we are”, we have a collective responsibility for the members of our community. If someone goes to prison, instead of blaming them for their individual weakness, we need to ask ourselves “How have we failed this person as a community?”
Each of the therapists at Koru have been through our own therapy journey of deep self-reflection and exploration of our vulnerabilities giving way to a genuine compassion and authenticity. As wounded healers we are able to meet each young person from a place of unconditional love where blame, ‘not enoughs’ and judgement are left outside the door.
