We help you find the right counsellor or psychologist

On calling us, we make the process simple and easy for you. One of our experienced Intake Counsellors will chat with you for up to 15 minutes. This is a free and no obligation consultation.

The Intake Counsellor will listen, explain what to expect and answer your questions. This will help you make a well-informed decision about who is most suited for your situation.

Depending on the issues, you will have a choice from 12 psychologists or counsellors, and usually a choice of appointment times.

Our passion is excellence in client care

counselling psychologist Parramatta Sydney

We are passionate to provide excellence in client care and quality service.

Our commitment is to respect your culture, beliefs, background and life journey. We seek to listen well, to be warm, non-judgemental and empowering, while giving direction.

Counselling proceeds with safety and at a pace that is best for you. Your therapist is highly trained to provide a safe place emotionally for you. They will set clear processes and boundaries of confidentiality.

This means that everything that happens will be explained, and your consent and collaboration will be requested for all the steps in your work. They will work with you to set an agreed direction and goals. In summary, your psychologist or counsellor will be alert to what will be most healing for you.

We strive for the highest standards of professional ethics, integrity and expertise in evidence-based practice.

Find the training to match your needs

We have 9 team members qualified with a Masters degree in counselling or psychology – 7 counsellors and 2 psychologists. Those who don’t have a Master’s degree, are equally qualified, with two postgraduate degrees/qualifications in counselling, or decades of experience.

All our counsellors and psychologists complete ongoing professional development, so that they are up to date in their professional work with you.

Our counsellors work mostly with marriage and relationship counselling, personal issues, addictions, trauma and abuse.
