CRDVS offers individual face to face counselling for people who have experienced domestic and family violence. This counselling is free, and people can self refer. Counselling is offered predominantly at Caboolture, with outreach to Pine Rivers on a weekly basis.
Counselling provides a safe place to explore and talk about experiences. People who have shared their stories with us, express appreciation of the value of being heard, understood and believed. We consider that counselling has a role in assisting people to reestablish trust and faith in their own ability to change, heal and overcome difficulties. Counselling is about working collaboratively to generate alternative ideas and work creatively towards your desired change. It is our privilege to share your counselling journey.
Counsellors at CRDVS are guided by the beliefs, values and principles articulated in the philosophy and values of CRDVS. Our counselling practice frameworks embrace ideas from a range of theories and approaches, including strengths based practice, feminism, constructivist and collaborative approaches, trauma counselling, expressive and creative therapies, and others.
CRDVS provides immediate assistance to people in crisis. For ongoing counselling there may be a waiting time due to high demand.
