Relationship Services

One of the most common causes of daily life stress is the relationships we have with people. This can include intimate relationship issues, work relationships, social relationships, and family

If you are in an abusive relationship and are experiencing domestic violence or family violence, confidential information, counselling and support is available from 1800RESPECT. Please call 000 if you are in danger and remember that violence isn’t always physical.

If you frequently have conflicts with work colleagues, feel discriminated against, or lack confidence and assertiveness in the workplace, counselling can help you understand why you feel the way you do and provide you with actionable strategies to overcome them.

Family relationships can be a source of stress for many people. Financial problems, perceived lack of respect, and intergenerational differences in values can often lead to communication and relationship breakdown.

Even within a circle of close friends, conflict can occur. You may feel resentment towards someone in your social circle or you may feel that your peers are disrespecting you. This can result in a lack of trust, deepen communication issues, and create social anxiety.

All of us have our own grieving process when we experience a significant loss.

It is normal for symptoms of grief to surface during this difficult time, however, if you are experiencing increased irritability, numbness, anger and bitterness, detachment, excessive guilt preoccupation with loss, or an inability to show or experience joy, you may benefit from talking with a health professional such as a grief counsellor.

Counselling Services For Addictions

Addictions are varied in their type and become a problem when they negatively impact on an individual’s employment, finances, relationships, health or personal goals.

For those who have addictions, it can be difficult to manage addictive behaviours yourself. Thus, seeking external help from counselling can help clients with their addiction.

Our counselling services can assist with the psychological aspects of addiction including exploring the behavioural and emotional causes of addiction. Working in conjunction with other health specialists, individualised plans and treatment goals are created, to gain the best outcome for clients.

Anger Management Counselling Programs

It is common for people to experience anger as a primary emotion. It is important to give yourself time to explore and express your feelings of anger so you can be unburdened from it. Counselling can assist you to do this in a non-destructive manner.

Our anger management psychologists work with people experiencing anger as a primary emotion. Find effective ways to learn better ways to express their emotions without resorting to anger as their default response to external triggers.

Social Anxiety

Also known as social phobia, social anxiety is more than feeling shy or being introverted around people and new surroundings. People with social anxiety disorder experience intense fear of certain situations and this can have a negative impact on their quality of life.

Our practitioners can assist in helping you develop a coping mechanism to reduce the impacts of social phobia. For more information on social anxiety including a real client case study, please refer to our guide here.

Dealing with stress at work can be difficult, but it is easier if you seek professional help. Our counsellors can provide guidance on how to navigate your workplace stress.

Other Counselling Services

​Mental health is about being healthy in all aspects of life and as such, there are many other areas of how we think, feel and develop relationships that may require assistance from a professional.

Reach out to us for any of the following health issues:

  • Eating disorders
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Coping with chronic disease and cancer
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Stress and work-related issues
  • Workcover and CTP

If you find yourself experiencing any of the following, our team of experienced psychologists can provide guidance and work together with you to develop effective strategies to deal with any relationship issue you may have:

  • low self-esteem
  • difficult with communication
  • trust issues
  • frequent conflict with others
  • episodes of anger
  • difficult forming or committing to close relationships
  • an inability to share feels of express emotion
  • insatiable sexual desire.

Sadly, LGBTI people are more likely to have thoughts of suicide and attempt suicide in their lifetime.

If you are in an emergency, or at immediate risk of self-harm, please contact emergency services on 000.

You may have to deal with difficult issues relating to work, to relationships, to finances, housing and everything else. On top of that, you may face issues relating specifically to sexuality such as:

  • homophobic or transphobic attitudes from others
  • your own internalised phobias or self-image
  • trauma from bullying, abuse or alienated from your family and friends
  • stress that builds up as a result of feeling different, or from being on your guard the whole time.

Addictions can come in different forms:

  • Drug and alcohol: apart from the financial impact of drug and alcohol abuse, dependence on drugs and alcohol can negatively impact on motivation and elevate irritability. As a result, relationships with family members and people from work or studies can deteriorate.
  • Sex: while sexual fantasies and enjoying sexual activity are normal, experiencing chronic and obsessive sexual thoughts and fantasies that lead to behaviour that consumes a lot of your time is an indicator that you or a loved one may require assistance. If you are unable to stop or control your urges and feel remorse or guilt after sex, our psychologists can help. It is, however, important to note that differences in the level of sexual interest between partners does not mean that one partner has a sex addiction.
  • Gambling: gambling can be a form of escape or used as a means to relieve feelings of helplessness, guilt, anxiety or depression. It is common to feel restless or irritable when trying to cut out gambling. If you find yourself preoccupied and constantly planning how to get more gambling money, our practitioners can assist you in developing an effective strategy.
  • Video games or internet gaming: not everyone who plays a lot has a problem with gaming. If you are a parent or guardian who is concerned about the amount of time your child spends gaming, evaluate how they are performing at school and with friends. If their grades at school remain good and communication is healthy, gaming is unlikely to be a problem.

Common signs that you may have an anger management issue include:

  • You feel that you lose control of your temper easily.
  • Your partner is scared of you.
  • Your children are scared of your anger.
  • Your workplace has provided feedback that your anger is an issue.
  • You are in trouble with the law due to anger (road rage, assault).
  • You ‘snap’ frequently.
  • It is hard for you to feel relaxed.
  • You feel that you lose control of yourself when you are angry.
  • You can’t seem to get your message across, and people misinterpret your frustration/anger.
  • Your anger has led to domestic violence (whether physical, emotional or verbal abuse).
  • You are being ‘performance-managed’ at work after an incident involving your anger.
  • You feel stressed and embarrassed by your anger.

Common workplace stressors typically fall into three broad categories:

  1. Working conditions (e.g., inflexible work schedules, inadequate childcare facilities, poor lighting, poor equipment).
  2. Doing the job (e.g., excessive workload or long hours, boring or repetitive work, lack of control over work, inadequate pay and conditions, inadequate training or support).
  3. Work relationships (e.g., discrimination, bullying or harassment, negative organisation culture, client hostility, conflict with supervisors/managers, poor relationships with colleagues).
