Counselling is short term and solution based, focussing on resolving psychological issues with the help of a qualified professional counsellor. People turn to counselling when they need support or at a crossroads in their lives. Counselling provides the chance to talk things through, very often relieving emotional pressure, clearing the way for people to focus and decide what to do next. Counselling can provide a sense of direction and a greater ability to achieve goals. At Newport & Wildman we foster a welcoming counselling environment where age, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation are accepted without judgement.
Professional counselling is a key service we offer at Newport & Wildman. We provide extensive coverage across Tasmania so we can guarantee your employees will have access to confidential counselling support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
