Adolescent Counselling Services

 

 

Everyone has ups and downs in life.  Sometimes we can bounce back from the tough times, sometimes it’s a real struggle.  Counselling can help you to manage some of life’s stressors, improve your ability to bounce back, and create the change you want.

 

OKCHS can provide:

 

4-6 session counselling and psychoeducation for stress, grief and loss, and family and relationship difficulties.

 

Accredited psychologists and social workers provide counselling for diagnosed mental health difficulties via GP Mental Health Care Plans – 6-10 sessions per year.

 

Confidential, free service for 13 years and over

 

Appointments either at school, or at Ovens and King Community Health
