Counselling is:

A confidential and non-judgmental relationship where you can explore and reflect on what has happened in your life.  It will give you the opportunity to express yourself and receive support, and will assist you in making any changes that you may need to make to move forward.

We can help with:

¨Grief and loss

¨Anxiety and depression


¨Relationship issues

¨Family issues

¨Parenting issues

¨Social functioning



¨Adjusting to change




¨Setting life goals

Consultation and Supervision are also available.

We have 3 counsellors. When you make an appointment with any counsellor ask about the cost involved, whether any discretionary funding is available and which days they are available.  A session is approximately 50 minutes in duration.
