Our counselling service provides professional, affordable counselling for individuals and couples who are affected by or at risk of HIV, and for members of the LGBTI community.
Counselling involves talking with an impartial listener in a confidential, non-judgmental, supportive and respectful environment. The counsellor will encourage you work through issues with increased awareness and understanding. It can help you develop greater self-acceptance, personal insight, and make positive life changes and decisions.
Counselling helps in a range of areas including:
- New or recent HIV diagnosis or other health issues
- Living with HIV
- Living with HEP C
- HIV and relationships
- HIV positive friends, family members or partners
- LGBTI intimate partner & family violence
- Anxiety and depression
- Relationship issues
- Coming out
- Grief and loss
- Emotional, physical or sexual abuse
- Safer sex.
Be proactive. Getting counselling before you get into a crisis can sometimes prevent it from happening or reduce its effects.
