What we do

Counselling

Professional counselling is a safe and confidential collaboration between qualified counselors and clients to promote mental health and well-being, enhance self-understanding, and resolve identified concerns.

Clients are active participants in the counselling process at every stage.
Counselling can be broad or focused. Clients may explore: aspects of identity, spirituality, relationships with self and others, past experiences, parenting, grief and loss, trauma, domestic violence, child abuse, use of alcohol and other substances, depression, anxiety, and other experiences.


Changes facilitated by counselling include: change in perspective, new insight, new ways of thinking about situations, new awareness of feelings, enhanced capacity to tolerate and regulate feelings, new actions or behaviours, and new decisions about life.
