Counselling for individuals, couples, families or friendship groups can be beneficial.
This is an opportunity to focus on your own experience, ask questions, speak about what might be worrying you and to very specifically work out what will be helpful to you. You may need to “shop” around to find the right fit.
Counselling is available face-to-face, or by phone or telehealth. Counselling may be provided by trained counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health workers, social workers, mental health nurses and others. Costs may vary, depending on the service, and you may be able to access the Medicare rebate for some psychologists and mental health services. Your workplace may have an Employee Assistance Program that you can access.
