One of the least recognised aspects of disability is the psychological impact. For those who acquire a disability, it’s often difficult to adjust to life when the way you do things and the way you feel about yourself has changed. Even for those who have lived their entire lives with disability, each new phase of life such as leaving home, meeting a life partner, having children or ageing, will bring with it new challenges. The lives of your family members may also be affected in different ways.

When it was first established in 2001, our psychology service was the first of its kind in Victoria. Today we remain one of only a handful of social enterprises offering disability specific counselling and psychological services. Our specialty is working with people with a spinal cord injury or people who’ve had polio, but we also counsel people dealing with any form of physical disability.

Our counselling service for individuals, couples or families can help you to achieve greater health, happiness and enjoyment in your lives. We're highly trained and experienced in counselling people to address a wide range of concerns, which include but are not limited to:

  • depression
  • grief and loss
  • adjustment to living with a disability
  • anger
  • intimacy and sexuality concerns
  • self-esteem
  • family and relationship conflict
  • stress and anxiety
  • identity issues
  • thoughts of suicide
  • social isolation
  • disability and ageing
  • pain and fatigue

Please note our service does not receive any direct government funding. It is only through the generosity of your donations, trusts and bequests that we can make our clinical psychology service accessible to individuals, couples and families with disabilities for therapy or counselling.
