Specialist family violence counselling

Family violence comes in many forms. From domestic violence or sexual abuse within abusive relationships, marriage breakdowns, controlling relationships to child sexual abuse, violence from adolescents or violence towards parents, elder abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, financial abuse to social abuse.

Confidentiality is an important aspect of counselling. This means that under normal circumstances no one outside of us is given any information – even the fact that you have been here – without your expressed written consent. The primary goal is to provide you with a safe environment in which you feel comfortable to discuss your concerns.

Cassandra works together with women to reduce the impact of the ongoing effects of violence and support them to move forward in their lives by providing short to long term individual counselling and psychotherapy.

Risk assessment, safety planning and referrals to crisis family violence services as required.
