Finally, I got an article published by Community Care Review to highlight the importance of counselling for older adults. While I attempt to make a case for community counsellors, I also recognise that some people need access to a range of mental health professionals. Using a series of examples, I presented scenarios where counsellors makes sense. I am pleased that my article is supported by 2 academics, one in South Australia, the other in Western Australia.
Older people (with and without a Home Care Package) and those with NDIS funding can contact YourSide on 1300 134 332 to request for a community counsellor. The partnership between us is to safeguard anyone who accesses my counselling support and service. Watch this blog for more info about partnerships with other organisations.
