Everyone has difficult experiences or feelings at some point in their lives, and it isn't always easy or useful to try to deal with them alone. Seeing someone face to face who can work with you in a confidential and safe environment can help you to better understand yourself, discover your strengths, make decisions, deal with difficult life events both present and past, cope with difficult feelings, improve your relationships and improve self-esteem.
how does it work?
Online video counselling is a real time conversation that happens with two people in separate locations - access to a computer (or mobile device with a camera and microphone), the Internet and a webcam at each end are required to make it work.
Not everyone can access regular face-to-face counselling due to location, transport, health or other reasons. We hope by offering this service we can help reduce barriers to accessing quality help
What kind of counselling do you provide?
We provide counselling for all kinds of people of all ages.
What kinds of things can you help with?
Our approach to counselling is tailored to each individual. We are client-centred and strengths based.
Our team of counsellors specialise in a range of issues, including:
What can I expect when I contact you?
When you contact us we will ask you a few questions to match you with a counsellor who is right for you, and go through what is called an initial intake assessment. The assessment is a broad conversation about areas of your life that you might be seeking support for from counselling, and any sources of strength you have currently.
We will then match you with an appropriate counsellor within 48 hours.
The next person to get in touch will be your counsellor who will book the first appointment with you directly.
How much will it cost?
The initial assessment for intake to counselling is free of charge. Contributions to the cost of the other counselling services are determined on a sliding scale ranging from $40 to $120 per hour.
Please contact us if you need financial support to see a therapist; we have a range of options we can explore with you and we don’t want money to be a barrier to seeking help.
