Psychology and counselling
When life becomes tough, we often need a place to turn. Access Place Psychology and Counselling Service aims to be that place and to provide you with a different kind of counselling service.
We use a holistic approach to focus on healing and resolving emotional, spiritual and practical issues in your life. We are here to help regardless of your faith or background. The focus of the service is on healing and resolving issues, not on preaching or trying to convert. People of all faiths and all walks of life are welcome.
Why see a counsellor or psychologist?
We all experience challenges in our life, particularly through times of change, personal trauma and when facing major life decisions. At these times, the support and guidance of an unbiased professional can help you gain a new perspective and find your way through these difficulties. Often you will start to experience hope and feel a positive change after only a couple of visits.
How can our family counselling and psychology service help?
Counsellors and psychologists can assist with a range of concerns, including lifestyle, parenting, relationships, school problems, anxiety, depression, trauma, faith issues and decision-making.
Our team is highly trained and possesses a wealth of experience in the community. Most counsellors hold a Counselling Masters degree in particular fields of specialisation. Our psychologists offer general counselling, therapy and psychological assessments. They can also provide intervention plans; liaise with schools and other professionals; and conduct teacher and corporate professional development programs.
All of our therapists are members of professional associations and are bound by a strict code of ethics so you can rest assured that all sessions are confidential.
Why Christian counselling?
The Christian faith is about bringing light, hope and healing to people and helping people to be all that they can be. The most effective counselling therapies use a similar approach. Our therapists are motivated by a duty of care and a concern for all people, regardless of their religious beliefs. We are non-judgemental, highly professional and use evidence-based, values-driven approaches. Sometimes, difficult times can challenge deeply held life beliefs. We, too, have grappled with the difficult questions of life and faith. If requested, we can discuss these issues or direct you to appropriate spiritual support.
What does it cost?
This is a non-profit service and our services are reasonably priced. We offer discounts for members of Churches of Christ in Queensland, health care cardholders and people experiencing difficult financial circumstances. In some instances a Medicare or private health insurance rebate is available. If you are referred to us by a GP through a Mental Health Care Plan, your visits will attract a Medicare rebate.
Do I need a referral?
You do not need a doctor’s referral to see a counsellor or psychologist. Simply call us to make an appointment and we will match you with a professional with experience in your area of need.
Call us on 1300 798 622 during business hours or email email@example.com to make an appointment. We believe every case is unique so will match you with a suitable therapist at a location convenient to you.
