Counselling

Counselling aims to assist people to develop a new understanding about things that have or may be likely to happen to them. For people diagnosed with a neuromuscular condition many issues and concerns can arise. They may be in relation to a new diagnosis, a recent deterioration in health, feelings of guilt that parents or carers may feel and any other emotional distress.

Counselling can assist people to make sense of their lives, resolve specific problems and make decisions. Counsellors do this by listening and enabling people to talk about their feelings as speaking out loud about problems can help put their thoughts in order.

If you think counseling may be of help to you please contact Client Services on (08) 8234 5266 or by using one of the emails listed below:
