Counselling is a process of supporting you to identify and work through any concerns you may have at your own pace. This may include current difficult life events or past problems that are impacting your present feelings or behaviours. General counselling provides a safe, nonjudgmental space to discuss your concerns, and explore alternatives and opportunities for change.


This can look different for different people. Simply talking through issues can be beneficial for some; whilst others may benefit from developing strategies to manage a challenging time. By working collaboratively, our counsellor can support you to identify the most practical and valuable way to understand your experience and bring about positive changes in your life.


Counselling at Maitland Family Support is available for adult individuals connected with our service for Family Work. You can access this if: 1) you are on a waiting list to see a Psychologist via a Mental Health Plan for a specific ongoing need and would like support to stay well while waiting for that access; 2) you have a situational challenge they you like support to work through. Regardless of your reason, our Counsellor is able to walk with you through the change.


To request counselling, speak with your Family Worker.
