Our experienced counsellors provide compassionate counselling, however, we are not a crisis support service.
We see clients for a range of issues including:
- anxiety and depression
- relationship difficulties
- bereavement and loss
- family and domestic violence
- parenting concerns
- low self-esteem
- perinatal anxiety, depression and concerns
- support for carers
- and a range of other emotional issues.
Referrals are not necessary. You can simply phone us on 9431 0500, leave your contact details with one of our friendly staff, and a counsellor will ring you back within the week to discuss the process of booking an appointment with them.
After an assessment, short-term counselling of up to 10 sessions is available. Or you may prefer to be involved in one of the groups facilitated by one of our counsellors.
We offer a sliding scale of fees for counselling sessions, which takes into account your level of income. Fees can be negotiated or waived depending on your circumstances. Please note, to access services at the Centre, you pay an annual support fee of $40 per year. A concession rate of $15 per year is available and this fee may be waived if you are unable to pay.
Our counselling services are very popular and wait times for appointments can vary, although there is usually a wait of at least a few weeks. Please contact us for more information.
If you are experiencing antenatal or postnatal depression, anxiety and/or stress, individual counselling or group participation is available.
Maintaining a speedy and effective response is a high priority and counsellors aim to make contact within a week of you contacting us.
One of our counsellors facilitates an ongoing weekly postnatal support group – Time Out for Mums at our Fremantle premises. Postnatal support groups of nine weeks duration are provided periodically in facilities in the City of Cockburn council area.
