If you’re not yet ready to engage professional counselling services, or you’re already seeing a counsellor but are looking for some extra help in between sessions, the following resources provide access to a variety of valuable, self-help articles, blogs, books and videos.
What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling and psychotherapy are professional services that support people to develop better understanding of themselves and others, address life difficulties and make the changes they want in their lives.
Counsellors and psychotherapists draw on a wide range of therapy interventions and are highly skilled in working across the spectrum of life difficulties. Counsellors and psychotherapists are widely accessible throughout Australia and work in private practice and in public and private organisations.
Counsellors and psychotherapists work with current problems, crises, and longer term difficulties. They provide both short and long-term services according to people’s needs. Counsellors and psychotherapists work with individuals, couples, families and groups, according to their training.
