yaama, I am Jedison Wells, Chief Facilitator and Counsellor at Hobajing Narrative Practice where we seek to lead people and communities out of their darkness. Our approach is based on the Australian Aboriginal concept of wellbeing in combination with Narrative Therapy where we put space between the Problem, and the Person.

Below is some more detailed information on my qualifications, purpose and practice but if you wish to go straight to our services, please click here for details on how we can support you as an individual or here as part of your organisation or team.

Formally, I have degrees in Adult Training and Development, Career Education, and Narrative Therapy and currently doing my PHD at Charles Darwin University. As a Counsellor, I am registered level three with the ACA, and the Business is registered with Support Nation and IAHA.

Informally, and much more importantly, what impacts my ability to support people in their wellbeing is my survival of a childhood and young adulthood that had me thinking I was worthless and attracted the types of people into my life who preyed on those thoughts. I have journeyed through many paths in my life, and comfortable talking about cultural safety, identity, homelessness, child abandonment, sex work, redundancy, divorce, addiction, alcoholism, blended families and many other shadows that you too may have also found yourself under.

With over 1000 hours of yarning and counselling practice, I integrate the mental and emotional healing practices of both my Yuwaalaraay and Scottish ancestors into the approaches I use. Though application is different, both Ancestries utilise the concepts of community and yarning, and both view health as a combination of parts intertwined with each other.

I have been employed in Construction, Community Services and the Public Service. In my younger days, I worked behind the counter in the Commonwealth Employment Service, and in administration in Austudy, Abstudy and SQWISI. Prior to my full time Counselling and Training gig, most of my experience has been in Construction Quality Management and Safety Coaching, with side hustles in team building and problem solving.
