Family & relationship counselling
The service aims to build the resilience and functioning of parents and families. We want to assist you to manage any issues arising from personal and relationship changes. Our highest aim is to ensure children at risk are protected, and also to contribute to building stronger communities. For example, our post-separation support services help families manage the process and impacts of separation in the best interests of children.
The purpose of our service is to help clients:
Establish and maintain positive family relationships.
Understand and better meet the care, welfare and development needs of children in their family context.
Prevent relationship stress.
Manage transitions across the relationship life/cycle.
Increase resilience to relationship stress or breakdown.
Identify and assist clients to resolve underlying and contributing issues.
Collaborate with other local community based organisations and government services.
Raise awareness of relationship issues.
Resolve parenting and child care issues.
Prevent family breakdown and youth homelessness by working directly with young people and their families or caregivers.
Manage the process of divorce/separation in the best interests of children.
We do this by providing:
Counselling — face to face, telephone, online.
Counselling — individual, couple, family, child, group.
Information and referral.
Education and skills training.
