What is counselling?

A safe space where you can feel seen and heard

Counselling is a confidential process designed to help you achieve a greater understanding of yourself and learn effective personal and interpersonal coping strategies. It involves a relationship between you and a trained therapist who has the desire and willingness to help you accomplish your individual goals.

Counselling is a good alternative to a psychologist or psychiatrist where there is no serious mental illness or disorder. It involves sharing sensitive, personal, and private information that may at times be distressing, or increase feelings of anxiety and confusion. You won’t be alone; at all times you will be met with empathy and support to navigate this journey.

All interactions with Arena Counselling, including scheduling of or attendance at appointments, content of your sessions, progress in counselling, and your records are confidential in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988.
