Counselling for Parents & Families

Counselling for Parents & Families

All families go through up’s and down’s. If your family is experiencing relationship issues, communication difficulties or are undergoing a transitional period or significant adjustment, counselling can help you find solutions to meet your needs.

We provide counselling for families, including group and individual sessions, and are experienced working with families from a range of social circumstances and cultural backgrounds.

Our counsellors are experienced and skilled in dealing with family relationship challenges and can help support families to assess their needs, identify areas for change, better understand and relate to each other, restore trust and communication and to ultimately strengthen relationships within the family unit.

Our staff

We have an experienced team of counsellors with the appropriate tertiary qualifications and experience in Social Work, Psychology or Counselling, which meet the approval requirements of the Commonwealth Attorney General’s Department. Professional supervision and on-going training are provided to all counsellors to ensure a high quality of service. Counsellors use a range of counselling approaches, based on what is appropriate for clients and their particular issues.

What will it cost?

The fee for counselling per session is based on a sliding scale, according to the household income. No referral is required, simply telephone for an appointment. Day and evening appointments are available at all branches. Waiting times for an appointment vary according to the current level of demand and your availability.

Do you provide services over the phone?

Generally counselling face-to-face is most effective. However we realise that sometimes you may not be able to visit one of our locations. In this case please call 1300 364 277 to see if we are able to arrange phone counselling for you.
