” Rachel is my inspiration. She has taught me a whole new way of living and giving me tools that keep me sober every day. The thought of drinking alcohol rarely enters my head these days. Thank you, Rachel, from the bottom of my heart” Emma UK.

“At first, I thought I was just a heavy drinker and binged every now and then. I guess I was in denial however The Freedom Room put all the scattered puzzle pieces back in place, helped me understand myself, my life, my drinking and my worth. Once I reached my point of desperation The Freedom Room along with my very supportive family helped me put my life into perspective. I attend AA however without The Freedom Room I wouldn’t be where I am today. AA is not for everyone but the 12 Steps are and they work. The Freedom Room uses a holistic approach to understanding an alcoholic and why we are the way we are. It’s not our fault, it’s a medical condition but The Freedom Room knows how it feels and what to do to get better and fit into live a normal, happy and productive life. Thank you The Freedom Room and my family. “Dave Bray, QLD.

” When I first went to the freedom room, I think I wanted to be shown how to drink safely. Rachels kind, caring manner and words soon helped me understand that my problem was deeper than I had allowed myself to believe. By going over my past drinking history, it became apparent that I had been drinking alcoholically for many more years than I cared to admit. I am working through a program of recovery at the freedom room. I cannot thank Rachel enough for what she has done for me already.” Leanne AC.

“Rachel’s approach to recovery is based on a spiritual understanding of personal growth within ourselves. Looking at the barriers and the boulders that kept me drinking for so long. She has a gentle and understanding approach and has helped me deal with many things that other professionals have not been able to. Rachel can relate to absolutely everything I say, as she has lived the same life as me regarding alcohol. I had drunk every day for over 20 years and could not stop. At the time of writing this, I am 7 weeks sober. Rachel is saving lives, and I am so grateful that I was guided to her. ” Bruce, Warner.

” I was at my wit’s end, and I thought I would die, but Rachel; shown me there was hope and made me see life through a new pair of glasses, she pointed out the positives in my life when I only saw doom, gloom, and unhappiness. If you are struggling with alcohol, I cannot recommend the freedom room highly enough; Rachel has undoubtedly changed my life for the better” Anonymous Brisbane.

” I had been sober for four years when I first started working with Rachel. Although I was sober, something was missing. Emotional sobriety is what Rachel called it, and that is what I have today “, Nancy SA.

“For many years, I have been trying to quit drinking alcohol, with periods of sobriety here and there, I haven’t been able to do it, this time, with the Freedom Room, it has been different, I have felt supported, I have held myself accountable, and I have reached out for the help and support which has been there. You re-educated the way I think and feel about drinking, and today I can honestly say, if you offered me an alcoholic drink, I wouldn’t want it. Thank you, Rachel. You make being sober desirable.” Natalie Brisbane.

“I went to the freedom room to see Rachel as I had a problem with my son, who is an alcoholic Rachel went above and beyond to help my son. She was meeting us outside the freedom room at a place that was convenient to me as my son was in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, my son is not ready or willing to receive help. The freedom room’s motto is that they care about people and not profit; this is what I saw. Rachel never charged us a cent; she just wanted to try and help” Cheryl. South Brisbane

“I never knew what freedom meant until I started the 12-week program at the freedom room. I thought I was choosing to go to the bottle shop and buy a bottle of wine or two most afternoons. Since learning from Rachel what Freedom really means has changed my whole life and changed my ideas on how I wish my life to be in the future, today, without the chain of alcoholism wrapped around my neck, I am free to make choices. I joined the freedom room program to help me stop drinking, but I also got way more than that, and I will always be so grateful,” Tanya Strathpine.


“Before finding Rachel and The Freedom Room, I was at my rock-bottom. I was anxious, depressed and angry at the world but most of all myself. I was heavily dependent on alcohol as well as marijuana & I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I had tried other programs, including detox and rehab, in the past, but nothing stuck.
Rach taught me how to deal with life beyond the alcohol with grace and courage & was there for me every step of the way. I have never met such a compassionate, raw, honest and loving person.
This program has given my daughter her mother back and my mother her daughter. I’m now present for my partner and he is no longer fearing for my life. I now have confidence & serenity.
Rachel has given me the gift of life and I, and my family are forever grateful.”

“My beautiful daughter has been battling her demons for too long and as a mother I ached for her everyday for many years. However, by herself she found The Freedom Room and our prayers were answered and I thank Rachel, Camilla and the supportive team members from the bottom of my heart for returning me my daughter sober, strong, proud, happy and in control of her life. My daughter is a young Mum also and now a wonderful one. I cannot thank you enough from all our family for the wisdom, strength, support and friendship you have given her.” Leanne Redcliffe.

I want to thank you so much for everything that you have done for me. Life has changed so completely and I could not have even begun to contemplate where I am right now without you and the support of the Freedom room team and community. To be able to live free of the effects and impact of alcohol is a real freedom. L. Brisbane

The Freedom Room has given me my life back. You can not do this independently; I would only get a couple of days of sobriety before drinking again. I tried to stop drinking a million times, and my family had had enough of me. I almost lost everything. The family at the freedom room will support you, guide you, and love you. Let them help you; I am so glad that I did. Joe Redland Bay.
