Yellowbird Wellbeing, is a boutique wellbeing business, founded by Tracy Clarke [Registered Psychologist] & Todd Clarke [Occupational Therapist & Specialist Disability Driving Instructor]. We are a registered NDIS provider providing unique and boutique supports to & with people with and without a disability.

We also will travel and use technology to deliver support throughout the Hunter, New England, Central Coast, Mid North Coast, , Mid Coast, Stroud, Gloucester & Dungog regions delivering a range of different supports.
Yellowbird Wellbeing was born late 2016 as an extension and expansion of our family business TT Driver Training that has been delivering disability specialist driver training and driver rehabilitation since 2002.
A life long dream to own rural property is now complete and this facilitates our wellbeing vision to deliver disability supports differently and offer new and innovative supports and opportunities to be realised in this unique environment. At the core of our boutique wellbeing business are family values as we are a family run business, that has the client at the centre of everything we do. These values are crucial to our ability to be present, authentic and provide evidence based practices through non traditional applications and environments. We depend on our clients feedback and input to ensure our programs are tailored to their needs.
Yellowbird Wellbeing have a passion for providing innovative options in order to support people with a disability in new and creative ways, discovering new ways of providing traditional disability supports. We work tirelessly at developing new programs based on published peer reviewed research, trialing new ideas, and placing ourselves as the next generation of disability and mainstream support providers. We are a small service without a layered management system - so the people supporting you are the ones shaping the service we provide.
