Counselling - Overview

We offer assistance that is respectful and sensitive to the needs of all individuals regardless of age, gender, financial status, cultural or religious background.

We provide counselling services for:

  • families
  • couples
  • individuals
  • children and young people
  • disability carers.

Our Counsellors

Each counsellor has a tertiary qualification in the social sciences field with practical experience in family and relationship counselling. Our counsellors will refer clients to other appropriate services for issues that are outside their field of expertise or where the issue does not fit within the guidelines of this program. Our counselling is confidential (see below) and aims to assist people to develop self-understanding, to explore and resolve their issues and to make changes in their lives.

Services for Carers

Family Relationship Services for Carers provides counselling and services to families caring for a person with a disability. Centacare recognises that taking care of a family member can be challenging. Sometimes carers feel isolated and worry about how they are going to manage it all, now and in the future. Taking care of carers is important.

Please note that this  program is provided across our Family & Relationship Services in South East Queensland.

Children and Young People

We offer a range of programs for both primary and high school students. Our services can assist with family breakdown by working directly with young people and their families or caregivers to resolve conflict and improve relationships.


Counselling is confidential unless limitations apply e.g. where there is a concern for safety or a risk of harm or there is a legal requirement. This can be further clarified with the counsellor in the first session.
