Individual counselling provides an opportunity to discuss and work through your particular difficulties in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment. At CLS we understand how Christians value their faith and its influence on one's identity, relationship with others, and most importantly, relationship with God. This understanding helps to facilitate the counselling process and provides the safety often sought by our Christian clients who seek our services from across Victoria and beyond.
Counselling generally explores issues of a personal, interpersonal, or situational nature, and our experienced psychologists are familiar with, and believe in, the Christian faith. Our counselling is professional, patient, supportive, and maintains respect and care for clients. This type of support creates an environment where clients are unconditionally accepted and feel valued no matter what the problem or situational difficulty is.
For general life issues, our psychologists will collaboratively provide counselling support to help resolve your specific difficulties through self-awareness, self-development, and/or situational change techniques as required.
For clinical or mental health problems, our experienced psychologists provide the necessary assessment and treatment options that will help you better manage and resolve difficult psychological symptoms - which may be affecting mind, emotions, behaviour, personality, and general functioning. Information is provided about the various psychological problems we treat by clicking on those listed in the left panel of this web page. Psychological testing is always performed by registered and trained psychologists, and each psychologist has the necessary expertise to provide a range of treatment interventions sensitive of Christian beliefs. All counselling maintains an ethos of respect for clients, including consideration of values, beliefs, and individual uniqueness and strengths.
