Counselling team

Our counsellors listen without judgement. They'll work with you to help you find the cause of the problem and identify solutions or ways to cope. They can also refer you to other services if you need them. You can see a counsellor who is male, female or an Ally (trained in the needs of LGBTIQ people).

Once you find a counsellor you'd like to talk to, you can book a telehealth (video or phone) appointment. Use the dropdown menu below to select the problem you need help with.
