Counselling, in layman’s terms, is a process of “talk therapy” whereby an individual, couple or family meet with a trained professional counsellor to discuss issues and/ or challenges they’re facing in their life. Contrary to popular belief, counselling isn’t just for people who are struggling with issues in their life, it can also be a helpful way to simply better understand their thoughts, feelings and emotions. During a counselling session, the attendees are offered a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space to express their thoughts, feelings and emotions. This process utilises an interpersonal relationship to enable people to develop self-understanding and make positive changes in their lives.
The skilled practitioners at Wavecare Counselling Services have had years of education and professional training, allowing them to specialise in therapeutic interventions. Some of these include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Family and Systems Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Play Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. In order to ensure these treatments remain effective, the Wavecare team regularly seek feedback from clients to ensure effective service delivery and tailored client care.
As a community organisation, we work with clients across their entire life-span, offering inclusive care to people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, as well as people who identify as LGBTQI+.
