At T n J’s Assessment and Counselling Services, counselling sessions generally run for an hour. During this time, the therapist may ask some questions, and encourage you to talk about what is causing you some concerns and troubling you. Counselling does not give advice but rather helps you to find new ways to think about things, to find new frameworks by providing you with an opportunity to consider things from a different perspective. It is a chance for you to talk through issues or experiences and for the therapist to listen in helpful and non-judgmental ways.

A wide range of experiences, from an everyday concern to a unique circumstance or situation are appropriate for a counselling session. Counselling addresses concerns across many lifestyle and life stage events and circumstances.
Some of the reasons that people seek out counselling include

  • Attitudes and beliefs related to relationships, intimacy, sexuality and lifestyle
  • Illness, grief and loss.
  • Life transition and adjustment issues
  • Personal growth and understanding
  • Self esteem
  • Anxiety, stress or depression
  • Problem solving
  • Managing emotions
  • Social and communication skills
  • Self-regulation and self-management skills

Yes, anything discussed within the counselling session will remain private and confidential. As a Mental Health Social Worker I am registered with the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and therefore adhere to the code of ethics

Any records that are kept in accordance with the Privacy Act 1988 (Amended 2000). Any notes of our counselling sessions are kept either in a locked cabinet or encrypted on a password-protected computer and destroyed after a period of seven years.

At T n J’s Assessment and Counselling Services’ we use a range of different counselling and therapeutic approaches or counselling ‘modalities’ to offer assistance to you; including cognitive behaviour therapy, narrative therapy and solution focused psychotherapy.

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy: focuses on identifying, understanding and managing both thoughts (cognitions) and actions (behaviour) and developing strategies to change unhealthy thinking habits and behaviours.
  • Narrative therapy: is a form of psychotherapy that seeks to help people identify their values and the skills and knowledge they have to live these values, so they can effectively confront whatever problems they face.
  • Solution focused therapy: is s a short term solution or goal-focused therapeutic approach which focuses on developing solutions rather than dwelling on issues. It focuses on your strengths and capabilities rather than any perceived deficits, weaknesses or limitations.
