Counselling for teens and adults with disability, and their families

We are pleased to advise that we are accepting referrals for our Counselling services.

Carpentaria Counselling appointments are available for adults, and young people aged 8-18 years. Counselling can support people with disability, and their family members, to navigate life’s challenges.

What can counselling support with?

Counsellors provide objective, professional support to people experiencing personal challenges or concerns. Carpentaria’s Counsellors specialise in anxiety, depression, and neurodiversity. Our Counsellors work with adolescents and adults, providing a safe, non-judgemental space to discuss difficulties, develop coping strategies, and achieve goals.

A Carpentaria Counsellor can work closely with you to:

  • Provide guidance, support, and education
  • Resolve concerns in a positive way
  • Clarify issues and explore coping strategies
  • Help solve problems, and develop problem-solving skills
  • Develop confidence
  • Work towards identified goals
  • Navigate life’s challenges
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Improve resilience and mental health
  • Provide insight into situations
