Family Counselling 

Separation and relationship issues can be an emotional and stressful time and it is important that you look after yourself to try and keep stress to a minimum. To assist you our family law counselling service is available.

Family Law Counselling

Our family law counselling service is family counselling provided under the Family Law Act 1975 and is for individuals (including children), couples or families to assist with personal and family issues, including those relating to the care of children. As this service is provided under the requirements of the Family Law Act the Australian Government has provided further information.

We are also a member of Stepfamilies Australia and this support is also extended to blended families.

Our family counsellors are experienced and skilled in dealing with the challenges that are faced by families. We will help support families to strengthen relationships within the family unit by:

  • assessing your needs
  • identifying areas for change
  • promoting understanding and ways of relating
  • restoring trust and communication

What are the benefits of family counselling?

The benefits of counselling will vary from one family to the next. The benefits may include:

  • developing healthy boundaries
  • improving communication
  • defining someone’s role within the family
  • improving family relationships and interactions
  • providing coping tools for family members
  • providing strategies to assist families to solve problems.
