Talking with a counsellor can help you explore and change aspects of your life and relationships that aren’t working as well as they could. Talking to a professional counsellor – whose job it is to listen and help people solve their problems – can help you pinpoint the real problem and make sense of how you feel without judgement. It’s not about giving advice, it is about helping you to find answers that work for you and your situation.

This service involves you speaking with an Interrelate counsellor either face-to-face, over the phone or via the internet. The service is available between Monday and Friday, 9am to 5pm. Appointments are usually scheduled during business hours. Your first session will probably last about one hour.

If your employer has agreed to engage Interrelate counsellors, you will receive free support sessions. The number of sessions are as per negotiated with your employer. If you are interested in more long-term support we can discuss this with you once you reach this limit. 

Interrelate counsellors can assist you with a range of issues including:

•  anger and violence
•  bullying, harassment and abuse
•  career transitions
•  communication break-down
•  coping with change
•  dealing with a crisis
•  depression, anxiety, worry and phobias
•  downsizing and redundancies
•  eating and weight issues
•  emotional difficulties
•  family conflict
•  gambling, drug, alcohol and other addictions
•  grief, bereavement and loss
•  interpersonal conflict at work
•  loneliness
•  managing heavy workloads
•  marital and relationship issues
•  mental health issues
•  motivation and self-esteem

This is a confidential service and privacy is important to us. When you speak with an Interrelate counsellor, no details of your issues will be discussed with anyone without your permission.

We do periodically report to your employer on how employees are using the service, but this does not give them any identifying information.
