We are here to support you during times of mental or emotional distress
You are not alone. You matter.

Are you wanting to talk to someone, but not sure if the clinical approach is for you?

Are you suffering from depression, anxiety or feelings of stress?  

Do you need support to work through a life transition or crisis? 

Accredited Mental Health Social Workers (AMHSW) are highly specialised social workers who focus solely on mental health concerns and diagnoses. 

They work from a holistic framework to empower you to help heal yourself. 

Mental Health Social Workers consider a person’s psycho-social environment and are well versed in government support systems and programs. 

They encourage a therapeutic relationship based on collaboration and partnership rather than an expert-patient relationship. 

You will be actively involved and thoroughly supported through a bio-psychosocial, integrated approach to enhance your wellbeing, and identify and address issues that impact your mental health or create inequality, injustice or discrimination.   

Our Mental Health Social Workers use a variety of evidence based treatments, tailored to you and your circumstances, such as:

  • Skills development: problem solving, anger and stress management, emotional regulation, assertiveness, social skills and parenting skills
  • Relaxation and Mindfulness strategies
  • Person Centred Therapy
  • Interpersonal Therapy, Trauma Informed therapy
  • Neuropsychotherapy, Attachment Theory
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Psychoeducation 
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
