When it comes to family counselling you and your family will work with your counsellor to identify what you would like to work towards and steps you can each take to get there. Counselling is an effective way of creating a greater sense of fulfillment and understanding in your family's relationship and the more each person commits to working towards this the greater the change.

Counselling is a voluntary process so if you're wanting to pursue counselling for you and your family start by having a conversation with them to let them know you want to improve your relationship together. It can be a good way to gauge their interest to see if they're willing to participate. Alternatively, you can book an appointment for yourself to discuss your situation with a counsellor before involving other family members.

Counselling is a very personal process and each person will take different amounts of time to see positive change. There is no set timeline for reaching the place you want to be. Your counsellor will continue to check in with you and your family throughout the sessions to make sure you are all on track for reaching your shared goals.

As per the Family Law Act (1975) your personal counselling information is confidential between you and the counsellor and cannot be used without consent. Exceptions to this are if you have a case going through court and information about your use of the service has been subpoenaed or a serious crime has been committed where you are suspected of being involved. Please feel free to raise this with your counsellor if you have any further questions about how your information could be used.

Situations involving an AVO are reviewed on a case by case basis as your safety is our priority. Please call our client experience team to make an appointment with one of our counsellors so we discuss your situation and help you navigate the best way forward. 

In circumstances where there is an AVO, a history of family and domestic violence or concerns about engaging in counselling with the other person we will require you book an individual session with us first.
