Sometimes life is hard enough without also having to face the pressures that come from being part of the LGBTQIA+ community. We want you to be able to live your happiest and most fulfilling life so we offer affordable, income-based counselling in a safe and welcoming environment. We believe it’s important to offer support from peers, that’s why our highly trained counsellors are either part of or strongly allied with the community.
If you’re part of the LGBTQIA+ community and want support to live your happiest and most fulfilling life you can connect with us to talk about a range of topics such as;
- General sexual health
- Sexuality and Gender
- Coming out
- Dealing with depression and anxiety
- Approaching addiction
- Communication and healthy relationships
- Grief and loss
- Stigma and discrimination
Our counsellors use a person-centred approach which means the client is in control of what is explored and the pace at which they go.
Our services take place at WAAC head office in West Perth and are available 9am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
To access this service you will need to participate in a brief assessment process either over the phone or face to face.
