Contracted Counsellors for:

Contracted delegate Therapist for Carers Victoria.

Caring can be a rewarding and at times a challenging role. Carers manage many different thoughts and feelings. Dealing with these is not always easy. Talking it over with others can help. Talking to a therapist doesn't mean failure, not coping or feeling inadequate. It's about looking after yourself. 


We provide short term counselling to caring families. 


People are eligible to use our service if they provide care and support to a family member or friend who is frail and elderly, has dementia, a mental illness, a disability, chronic illness or complex needs, or receives palliative care. We can also provide counselling if a client has recently stopped providing care.


We can provide short-term counselling (up to six sessions) that will mainly focus on issues related to the caring role. Carers can come back after a break or if there is something new that they need to deal with.
