Women’s Counselling Services

Counsellor Talking with Teenage Girl and Mother - Melbourne Therapy & Counselling Centre

Life can be challenging and stressful and it’s not uncommon for women to experience feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression. These feelings can be caused by a variety of factors, such as family or workplace issues, financial worries, relationship problems, lack of confidence, trauma and many more. Melbourne Therapy & Counselling Centre services are designed to help women work through these challenges and improve their overall well-being.

Through counselling, you can learn new ways of thinking and behaving and develop mechanisms or coping strategies for managing negative thoughts and feelings, which can also contribute to an overall improvement in self-esteem and confidence. Mental health is a vital aspect of our overall well-being and it is important to take care of it just as you would your physical health.
