We provide free and confidential trauma-informed counselling in the Barwon and Wimmera regions for adults, young people and children who have experienced sexual assault and for women and young people who have experienced family violence.

If you would like to access our counselling, we offer a supportive environment where you can gain an understanding of violence, explore the impacts of trauma, connect with personal resources to manage the effects of trauma and make choices that enhance the quality of life for you.

Our counselling for children aims to support and strengthen the care-giver/child relationship and is likely to involve the non-offending care-giver in family counselling as we recognise how vital this role is for the child’s recovery.

Our individual or family counselling may be brief, short term or longer depending on your needs. We offer counselling support for family members, carers and friends of people impacted by sexual assault and/or family violence.

We can also assist you with access to other services and supports, based on your particular needs and goals.

The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land we stand on. We are committed to working toward creating a community where all people indigenous and non-indigenous are safe, connected and empowered to live well. The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre recognises the diverse needs of our community and we ensure our services are inclusive of all children, young people and their families including those who are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, those who identify as LGBTIQ and persons living with disability. We work collaboratively with people and partner organisations who also support our diverse client group. Interpreter and translator services are available to all our clients upon request.
