The Cabin Group

The Cabin is an innovative and dynamic mission-led organization that exists to help people reach their highest potential and to live meaningful and fulfilling lives – often in the context of social disadvantage, trauma, disability or illness. We do this by creating the best programs for our clients and by continuously auditing and reviewing all of our evidenced based clinical interventions to unlock the potential of both individuals and our skilled therapists who guide and support them. At The Cabin we believe that by balancing clear thinking, human connection and action – using the head, heart and hands – we can continue to make a real difference in the world.
