With an approach that blends hope and health, you can regain control of your emotional, spiritual and physical self – today and for years to come.


At Hope in Health, we custom-design programs to balance nutrition, exercise, nature and mindfulness. This personalised approach gives us the flexibility to mould our work around the needs, expectations and vision of each person in our community, and then continually refine our work as they transform. While these programs start at a base of 4-weeks, we have options to suit everyone.



We offer a safe and rejuvenating space for you to reset.


We develop the structures to guide you on a journey towards long-lasting success.


We used our experience and training to create programs that reflect the needs of each person.


We are committed to programs that sustain recovery - naturally.


We live by our mission and improving people’s lives starts with the way we live our own. We’re creating an authentic ecosystem of support and guidance that finds the perfect balance between hope and health- and we’re backed by a strong and diverse team of professionals, visionaries and supporters. Together, we want to help our community through the journey of recovery, transformation and wellness. We know first hand just how tough it can be on the journey towards health too.

Co-Founder and Program Director

Nick co-founded Hope in Health because his own experiences with rehabilitation left him wanting more – for himself and for others.

After sourcing the ideal location in the Northern Rivers region of NSW that matched his vision, he worked with his team to master-plan and and purpose-build a facility – a place for people to come and experience treatment and therapy for addiction, trauma and burnout, which balances nutritious food, mindful practices, and movement; all in a setting where they could experience the healing aspects of nature.

A loving father, successful trainer, and human going through his own recovery, Nick’s kindness, and desire to help others, is evident in everything he does. People are attracted to his positive energy and this has led him to creating a wonderful team at Hope in Health that will help many people live their best lives.

Hugh Hayward


With a variety of herbs, mixed with Chinese massage and acupuncture techniques, Hugh has taken nature’s approach to rehabilitate people; and as a result has already helped thousands in their recovery journey over the past decade.

Having personal and family experience with addiction, Hugh has a great understanding of addiction which drives his passion to help others find balance at Hope in Health. He believes balance is “the key to healing through sustainable habits”.

Kea feels that the Hope in Health team has the power to reconnect people to the world around us, and break the habits that disconnected us in the first place.

He also practices yoga and exercises 6 days a week. These interests, coupled with his background and life experience makes Wade uniquely suited to make a difference at Hope In Health.
