I was referred to Centacare for counselling after a recent family bereavement. As someone new to counselling I was very unsure about what to expect. Since the moment I met my counsellor I knew I had made a positive decision. I am back on track with my life and I really appreciate Centacare for the help and support they provided me! It’s refreshing these days to deal with an organisation that really cares for its clients’ wellbeing.

From my first contact I have been given 100% support and assistance. I have been provided helpful information that is more than helpful and I have been treated 100% seriously and professionally.

Thank you for being there for me and providing calm friendly information in a stressful situation. It helped me to feel calm and in control.

To have immediate support when you’re feeling so scared & fearful, I can’t thank you enough!

The level of insight – professionalism whilst still being very compassionate has been amazing.

The care, support and safety I felt, the kindness and the caring way everything was explained to me, your service was wonderful thank you!

We would like to recognise the high standard of care and development opportunities our children receive whenever they attend your service.  Our interactions with ALL of your care employees is ALWAYS polite, respectful and informative.  We can go to work feeling very confident that we have left our kids in your extremely safe hands.

My brother first moved into a Centacare provided accommodation support setting in 2002 after moving out of our family home. Our parents were always very supportive of John’s independence. When John moved into Centacare supported accommodation the staff worked really hard to ensure that John continued on with this independence; they have supported him to learn a few more skills than we thought possible. John is often out and about doing things in the community; John has a more active social life than I do!  Julie, Sunnybank Hills

I’ve learnt how to be a better person for myself and others, it’s the best course I have ever been on – thank you!

A massive thank you to the terrific and awesome staff of Centacare’s Majella Child Care centre! We are truly blessed and grateful for your high degree of professionalism and exceptional care you provide and appreciate all your hard efforts, patience and tenacity! You’re the best!

Having a Centacare SCOPE representative at the court house helped alleviate my anxieties, and made everything more understandable for me.

This course has been an excellent experience in improving my home life.

You’ve enabled me to listen and communicate with others better.
