How NDIS counselling can help you

There are times when you might feel anxious, scared, frustrated or upset. Sometimes you might even have trouble admitting your feelings to yourself, let alone feel like speaking to somebody else about how you feel.

It’s in these situations that our caring therapists can work with you to support you to work through your problems so you feel less overwhelmed and more in control.

What happens when I see an NDIS counsellor?

When you see an NDIS counsellor you will have an initial appointment and a series of follow up appointments.

Your first session may include a formal or informal assessment to get to know you and understand your specific needs. We will use different therapy models depending on what suits you best.  Some people need only a few sessions while others need ongoing support. Hour-long sessions are usually scheduled on a once or twice a fortnight basis.
