Inner West Counselling Service
WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
Counselling is a professional service that focuses on enhancing people’s capacity to cope with specific life challenges. Seeing a counsellor can help people resolve crises, reduce distress or anxiety and develop goals for change
Counselling can also assist with problem solving and the development of inner resources to move on with life in meaningful ways
WHAT DO WE OFFER?
Inner West Counselling Service offers low cost generalist counselling to individuals over 18 years.
Counselling is conducted by trained counsellors, intern psychologists or social workers in a private space and in a warm, caring and non-judgmental manner. We are sometimes able to accommodate people from non-English speaking backgrounds. Please telephone to ask what
bi-lingual counsellors are available.
ISSUES WE CAN HELP WITH
Some of the issues that can be brought to counselling are:
Stress or Anxiety
Feeling hopeless or worthless
Relationship difficulties or separation
Behavioural changes or difficulties
Grief and Loss
Self Development & Self Awareness
If our counsellors believe that a client requires a more specialised service, an appropriate referral will be given.
We believe that counselling should be available to those who need and want it. So our fees are based on a sliding scale, according to income and no one is ever turned away due to limited finances.
Our service is unfunded and all our counsellors donate their time, so contributions are also welcome
