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.
Counselling is client-centred and offers a supportive environment to gain an understanding of violence, explore the impacts of trauma, and connect with personal resources to manage the effects of trauma and make choices that enhance quality of life.
Counselling for children supports and strengthens the care-giver/child relationship and is likely to involve the care-giver as we recognise how vital this role is for the child’s recovery.
Individual or family counselling may be brief, short term or longer depending on the needs. We offer counselling support for non-offending family members, carers and friends of people impacted by sexual assault and/or family violence.
We can also assist with access to other services and supports, based on the particular needs and goals.
