What is counselling?
Counselling is a method that involves bringing about a better mental health state for the client so that the client is then capable of reaching his or her maximum potential. This practice is best accomplished by counselling you to encourage your personal development and self-understanding. Counselling in turn empowers the client to adopt a more constructive life practice.
Counselling can offer help in many ways. It helps you to identify your concerns and can allow you acquire new skills to better manage your personal and working life. Through counselling you can get a different perspective and start to think of creative solutions to problems. Sharing your thoughts and feelings with a counsellor who is not personally involved in your life can be most helpful.
All counselling sessions are strictly confidential. This allows to client to discuss issues that he or she may not feel comfortable discussing elsewhere.
Are you looking for a qualified Psychologist to talk to who is up to date with the latest Psychological technologies?
Today, more and more people are seeking help from qualified Psychologists to get counselling for their mental health problems.
These are all very common issues that Psychologists and Counsellors in Brisbane are helping their clients to deal with.
Unfortunately, in modern society there is a social stigma attached to attending counselling sessions or seeing a psychologist. This may be one of the reasons why you are searching the Internet for a qualified professional to talk to. We understand this.
What is the difference between counselling and a Psychologist?
Psychologists have 6+ years of training and are required to be registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Agency (APRHA). You will also be entitled to generous rebates, making your counselling sessions more affordable. For example:

N.B. Please check with your GP to see what rebates you are entitled to. Most people who attend psychological counselling sessions claim through Medicare or Private Health.
