Who is it for?

Relationships Australia NSW’s domestic violence counselling services offer compassionate, understanding and professional support to those who have been victims of domestic violence.

Our domestic violence support services are also available to other family members of those who have been affected by violence.

How can domestic violence counselling help me?

Our counsellors give you the space to talk through your experiences as and when you’re ready. We’ll listen with compassion and understanding, and we encourage you to go at your own pace.

We recognise that everyone’s experience and situation is different, and that everyone deals with traumatic experiences in their own way.

Our friendly counsellors have years of experience working with both victims and perpetrators of many types of domestic and family violence, and will help you work through trauma and deal with any strong emotions you may be feeling. We’ll also provide you with strategies to help you move forward with your life when you’re ready to do so.
