Hi there, my name is Angela Symonds.

I am the Director of  Rise & Roar the Founder of The Empowerment Club, the Author of Mindset Box & No More F#cks To Give.

I am incredibly passionate about helping people move beyond trauma and the feeling of hopelessness. I want to help people embrace their life and soar to heights they have possibly only ever imagined, to become actionable and aligned in the implementation of it all!!

From a young age, I was in an environment where family violence was a daily occurrence. I spent years self-loathing and entered some incredibly dark and volatile relationships in my young adult life because it’s what I knew. 

I went on to learn that there is more to life than just existing and as individuals, we have the power and control to create incredible change for ourselves when we are shown how. We are capable of breaking cycles and standing in our own power, we are capable of greatness when it’s driven from within.  

I have been working in Health Services with people for over 20 years in various areas. Acquired Brain Injury Rehabilitation, Mental Health, Youth Rehabilitation, Psychosocial Mental Health, Domestic Violence Crisis Management, Intervention Counselling, Suicide Risk Response, Emergency Response, Single Session Counselling, Early Intervention, Initial Needs, Triage & Assessment.

I developed The Empowerment Club to help people reconnect with themselves and take back a sense of power, control and ownership of their lives, careers, and relationships. To be able to face down and move beyond the past and habits that keep them stuck.

I use a variety of  Mind & Body practices to help a person shift from where they are to where they want to be.

I have numerous years of life experience and hold qualifications in: Counselling,  Intervention Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma Response, Mental Health, Body Language, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Single Session Counselling, Reiki, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Wellness Coaching, Life Coaching, Precision Nutrition, Transformation Specialist, Nutritional Health Coach, Nutritional Therapist, Fitness Instructor, AntiGravity Instructor, National Vocational Qualification in Fitness.

I hold current Level 1 & 2 First Aid Certificate and have a current Working With Children check.



Hi, My name is Jasmine Symonds,

I am the Admin & In-House Design Manager at the Empowerment Club and Mindset Box, I help keep everything on track and looking fabulous.

I have a dream to be a Theatrical Costume Designer and want to travel the world.  I’m currently attending White House University in Sydney during the school holidays.

I think I’m not only lucky but privileged to work with my mum. She has always taught me to find something I’m passionate about and to follow my dreams, to be strong and focused on achieving all I can, and live the life I desire. I not only get to see her do this on a daily basis, I am inspired by the people who attend The Empowerment Club. The Empowerment Club is a powerful place to create the life you want, this I know first hand. I’m on track to be successful in all that I want because I believe in myself.
