Our History

The Centre for Healing (originally The Melbourne Centre of Healing) was founded by Ryan and Melissa and 2016 as an in-person addictions and mental health outpatient clinic. Through their own lived experience and various studies in mainstream and alternative therapies, they created specific programs with above-average outcomes in the space. Since then, they gained Accreditation with IICT for their methodologies and now deliver online trainings and certifications.
We now have a team of trainers and support staff who work with us, serving and certifying our students from all around the world.


Our vision is to create a world where individuals are able to heal from trauma and live fulfilling, healthy lives. We believe that everyone has the potential to heal and thrive, and it is our mission to empower therapists, healers and coaches to be the leading force for change through our trauma-informed trainings.


Our mission is to provide high-quality practitioner trainings that integrate science and spirituality in order to facilitate trauma healing. We strive to create a safe and supportive learning environment where practitioners can develop the skills and knowledge they need to effectively support individuals on their healing journey. We also aim to spread awareness about the importance of addressing and healing trauma, and make these transformative practices more accessible to all.

Inclusivity and Diversity

We are committed to creating an environment that encourages and supports individuals from all backgrounds. We embrace diversity in ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, gender, exceptionalities, language, religion, sexual orientation, and more. Our course materials, language, and interactions are designed to be inclusive and respectful, valuing the perspectives and experiences of all participants. We actively foster an environment where individuals feel safe, heard, and respected, creating a supportive space for personal growth and learning.

Giving Back

We believe that it is important to continue to flow of abundance and give back in several ways. We offer Scholarships each quarter, a free certification for industry professionals to become trauma-informed. We also share part of our profits with Berry Street, a not-for-profit that assists families and children in finding safety and healing if their home isn't safe right now due to abuse and neglect.

Ryan Hassan - Co-Founder

Ryan is Founder and CEO at The Centre for Healing. His passion for helping people with Mental Illness and Addiction comes from his own pain. Ryan suffered from anxiety for as long as he could remember and that manifested in many destructive patterns throughout his life, culminating in a hardcore drug addiction to Methamphetamine & GHB. Whilst this addiction took everything material from his life, it was also Ryan's greatest blessing. He was forced to face up to his mental and emotional demons, and he overcame not only the addiction but also his anxiety to feel peace for the first time. This led him to completely immerse himself in how people end up in emotional pain and how it’s possible for anyone to be free from it. This led him to open The Centre for Healing, to help people who have found themselves in the pain he once was. Ryan has been a Trauma Therapist for many years and has successfully helped countless people get past their Addictions & Mental Health issues through his experience, understanding and knowledge. He is also a co-creator of the healing modality Embodied Processing, with colleague & friend Matt Nettleton. Ryan has been trained in various modalities around trauma & alternative healing, as well as more traditional counselling & coaching..
