Our Story 

Evolving over 15 years in classrooms, homes and clinics throughout Australia, Reboot has been extensively trialled and tested.  It is a highly practical and proven neuroscience-based, trauma-transformative framework incorporating positive and developmental psychology, mindfulness and the science of behavioural change.

As we all share a common neuroarchitecture and daily set of needs, Reboot's Whole-brain Framework and core tools address both well-being and learning engagement across all ages, from early childhood to staff development.

Reboot's practical tools create positive behaviour change, calmer and more engaged schools and homes and happier young people.  Reboot provides over 90 practical strategies, and over 700 support resources including student lessons, classroom templates, parenting and therapeutic strategies, word wall, lanyard cards, stickers, workbooks etc.

Reboot is designed to be localised to the unique circumstances of your community and children, and can be used school/organisation-wide, in classrooms and homes, for individual support, restorative justice and mediation, therapeutic interactions, intensive group work and parenting/out-of-home care.

Our Approach

Reboot  Wellbeing Framework

Reboot’s Whole-Brain Framework creates the optimal conditions for learning, parenting and support. Trauma-informed and neuroscience-based, Reboot’s Framework is a simple well-resourced and highly intuitive approach. Accompanied by over 700 practical strategies, lessons, templates, how-to-guides and physical resources Reboot is easy to implement.

Reboot’s 21 core tools are learner led. Bright visuals illustrate clear processes accompanied by guiding questions that take the emphasis off adult-driven conversations. Reboot coaches everyone to own their choices, discover their power as an Agent of Change and take action leading to real behavioural change.

Everyone’s Wellbeing and Resilience is supported through Reboot’s Whole-Brain Framework as we all share a common neuroarchitecture and needs regardless of age. Using age-appropriate strategies we address young people’s wellbeing needs and also adult resilience and performance. Reboot practically addresses the very unique stressors and demands of consistently caring and supporting young people, in particular those with trauma-related behaviours and needs.

Our Approach

Over the past 15 years of implementation with tens of 1000s of individuals, educators, hundreds of schools and organisations, we’ve discovered that successfully empowering young people rests on 3 key pillars:

  • Whole-brain approaches: holistically addressing needs in parenting, teaching and learning, and support
  • Practical tools: empowering young people through clear repetitive processes accompanied by guiding questions that take the emphasis off adult-driven conversation and responses.
  • Resilient adults: healthy, grounded and present adults who model key life skills and resilience

Our Rebooters are...


Reboot tools help build self-awareness, emotional literacy and a bank of self-regulation strategies to manage emotions and stress and enable us to respond effectively to challenges. Using the 5 Faces and 3 Brains Reboot links the body, feelings and emotions with the power of our minds through an understanding of our universal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs and healthy ways to address them. Reboot encourages all to be grounded and centred and assume self-responsibility by “Starting with I” and owning our Power in all situations.


Reboot encourages Power With or ‘win-win’ relationships built on empathy, social understanding, kindness, cooperation, gratitude and healthy boundaries. Our tools support people to form, maintain and repair relationships, firstly with themselves and then beyond. We encourage classrooms/families to work together in healthy webs with each person acknowledging their intrinsic self-worth and impact as a web creator and web keeper.


In the midst of chaos, demands and uncertainty Rebooters remain calm, clear and strong. Rather than being thrown by the many influences and distractions in the world around them, they know and protect themselves and remain focused on what has meaning and purpose to them. Rebooters are also aware of their values, talents and interests and the specific self-management strategies they need to be happy and strong.

Tenacious Learners

Tenacious learners are passionate, excitable, curious and determined to understand and do! Reboot supports a learning apprenticeship by building meta-cognition and learning-how-to-learn skills. With a foundation of self-regulation, learning how-to-learn and problem-solving skills, Rebooters have the tools to face challenges with resilience and adapt as life-long learners. They are responsive to feedback and critique and seek input to better reflect on where they are at, what they need and where they want to go in the learning journey. When facing unpredictability and uncertainty, these skills help us all to keep our head up and explore the situation for what it is and not what we fear it might be. Reboot encourages us to seek answers using The Learning Pathway, Quadrants of Engagement and SERFing and build webs of resilience around ourselves to support one another to be strong and grounded in a rapidly changing world.

Innovative Agents of Change

Challenges are inevitable in life and present an opportunity for creativity and growth. And every one of us is a potential Agent of Change! Reboot provides a clear problem solving and decision-making tool, the Positive Change Highway that encourages all to seek Solutions to Speedbumps, using their Strategies to embrace opportunities and trial possible solutions. With repetition problem-solving builds courage and the confidence to take greater risks to learn and value the impact of their contributions. Reboot encourages agency, tenacity, curiosity, healthy help seeking behaviours and collaboration.

Courageous contributors

Our world needs positive change and solutions across a range of fields. Reboot’s tools encourage each person to identify My Why? and follow their passion to make a meaningful contribution using their strong problem-solving and learning skills. Confident and capable in their self-expression, clear on where they stand and actively engaged in their learning, Reboot encourages all learners to express their talents and passions as a unique contribution to the worlds that they live in.

Meaningful Communicators

Great communication isn’t flashy or just filing dead air. Rebooters understand the power of meaningful, clear and well-expressed ideas, whether it be spoken, visual, digital or written in form. They have the confidence and self-belief to stand their ground and articulately formulate their message through a range of modes. Employing kindness and empathy they can then listen, reflect and respond in ways that contribute great value.
