Youth counselling

As a young person sometimes life is hard enough without also having to face the issues around gender identity, sexuality, bullying and becoming a part of the LGBTIQA+ community. We want you to be able to live your happiest and most fulfilling life so we offer free counselling in a safe and welcoming environment.

Our counselling for LGBTIQA+ young people runs out of Freedom Centre in Leederville and is open to any young LGBTIQA+ person ages 12-26. You do not have to be an attendee of Freedom Centre or live in Perth to access counselling and support.
