On-line counselling provides an easily accessible and highly effective service for those that don’t have time to come in for a face to face session. International research has shown it to be particularly successful where people are suffering anxiety, stress or depression. At Relationships Australia we look at these types of issues through the lens of relationships, knowing that difficult relationships are often the cause of many of the issues we face.
Relationships Australia has provided counselling services for more than 60 years and was one of the first in the Australia to establish online counselling. Our highly qualified and experienced counsellors are keen to assist you in either individual or couples counselling using this platform
