Alternatives to face to face counselling

If you live in remote areas or have physical limitations that prevent you from attending counselling in one of our offices, we offer alternative options that may work for you. Chat style counselling (on our highly secure portal), email counselling, phone counselling, or Skype sessions are all available if you are unable to attend one of our offices. These services are effective, accessible, and time efficient.
