All counselling is designed to help you live your best possible life. Therapeutic approaches are tailored to your specific needs to help you manage challenges before they become overwhelming. Our counsellors are competent in using various trusted and proven therapeutic approaches informed by Christian principles. Each counsellor’s work is further enhanced by their own unique blend of personality, skills, qualifications and life experiences. Where needed, our counsellors can also connect you with other specialists on the team such as psychologists, social workers, dietician or naturopath.
Counselling is by appointment only. During your initial enquiry, our counselling coordinator will listen to your needs and match you with the most appropriate practitioner. We do not have a waiting list. A fee is payable for counselling. In cases of financial hardship, fee assistance may be available. A doctor’s referral is not required to see a counsellor. All enquiries and counselling sessions are strictly confidential. For further enquiries, please call 9871 8900.
