Bianca Stawiarski

Facilitator

Bianca Stawiarski operates international Indigenous social enterprise and sovereign business Warida Wholistic Wellness, which recognises that communities needed something different to western clinical approaches to improve the growing mental health crisis around the world. She is a strong Badimaya and Ukrainian woman, who is a centred and purpose driven healer, consultant, coach, speaker, lecturer, best-selling and international author, trainer, and change-maker.

Bianca infuses her calming, resilient, earthy, Indigenous connectedness into all that she does. As well as the work she does on Country, Bianca is sought out by organisations, companies, and publications from across the globe. She is a Lead Facilitator and recognised Sovereign Business for We Al-li Program workshops. Bianca is also a PACFA certified mental health practitioner with an interest in supporting people who have experienced complex trauma, bringing the therapeutic space outside of four walls in a decolonised way. She holds a master’s in counselling practice, a diploma of life coaching, post grad diploma of counselling, certificate in equine assisted psychotherapy, and a bachelor of Aboriginal studies, amongst other qualifications. She is also undertaking a PhD part time exploring Ngardi Guwanda (deep listening) Indigenous Healing and lived experiences of dissociative identity disorder. She hopes the results can continue to create awareness and instigate change and provide a platform for some of our world’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people with lived experiences to have their voices heard.

Bianca lives on Kaurna Country with her two amazing adult children, Savannah and Orson, her father, Nick, a menagerie of four-legged family. In her spare time, Bianca competes internationally in horse archery.
