COVID update: Face to face appointments are continuing and we ask that face masks be worn in appointments unless you have medical advice not too. We will continue to follow the advise and requirements to ensure we keep everyone safe. If preferred, video link appointments are available.
If you are feeling unwell, have cold or flu like symptoms or have been in contact with someone tested for COVID please let us know and we can arrange for a video appointment. We’re using the new Check In Qld app to help keep you COVID safe during your visit. Visit www.covid19.qld.gov.au/check-in-qld for links to download the app from Google Play or Apple App stores)

How can we help?
Counselling helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. For some people, just the process of telling their story to a counsellor, and being listened to, is helpful.
Counselling is a journey and together we will plan that journey ensuring your needs and safety are attended too.
We offer flexibility that allows for a variety of counselling formats, including:
Face-to-face – This is when you make an appointment with a counsellor to see them in person. Appointments will be at your home or a safe location to discussion your support needs. Locations can be discussed at the time of your enquiry.
Video counselling – Connect from anywhere in Australia. Geography and commutes are no longer a barrier to getting the support you deserve.
What is Video Counselling?
Video counselling services allow people to receive online counselling via video conference and the session takes place ‘virtually’ using video and audio connection. You will be able to see and speak to the counsellor online, exactly as if you were sitting in front of them in an office, from the comfort of your home or preferred private location.
What can I expect from an online counselling appointment?
All online counselling appointments via MyTeams are as private as face-to-face appointments and measures are in place to ensure the video conference is secure. You will also need a quiet, private space for the duration of your session and your counsellor will also be in a private room. You will require a device that has both video and audio capabilities, and a reliable WiFi or broadband internet connection.
At the time of booking please advise what counselling option is best suited to your needs.
