About Us

Who We Are

We are After the-Storm, your go to place for finding the right services and support you need to help you through all the challenges and life lessons that might come your way.

We are about CONNECTION:

  • Connecting Individuals to services and resources that can support them through times of growth, difficulty or personal change.
  • Providing a platform for Service Providers to connect with the individuals they are looking to support.
  • Through engaging and informative content we bring people to our site to share in the insight, gain the motivation, inspiration and support they need.

So many people continue on in isolation when a life changing event happens, they are unsure of where to turn, what help is credible and whether they can trust the information found on the internet.  They might not even know that there is support available for what they are experiencing.  There are people who really want to change the circumstances they find themselves in and want to understand the best way to go about it, whether a change in career, lifestyle or behaviours.
