Counselling

SECCA provides specialist counselling and education in the area of human relationships and sexuality to people who have a disability, their family and significant carers. All of our Therapists (Counsellors) are tertiary trained and have extensive experience in both sexuality and disability issues. Counselling is conducted on a one-to-one basis, allowing the Therapist (Counsellor) to tailor-make sessions specifically to suit the needs, age and ability of the individual.

We have recently made changes to our counselling services as we are no longer funded to offer all counselling for no fee.

Counselling under an NDIS Plan

We are registered to provide counselling under NDIS and to access counselling through your Plan please complete the Make a Referral form so we can arrange a Schedule of Supports and Service Agreement.

General Counselling

We are able to provide 2 types of general counselling.

  1. Counselling services which is available for those who live in areas that are rolling out NDIS from 1 July 2019. To check the NDIS Roll Out areas click here. SECCA is funded to provide these services at no charge until 30 June 2020.
  2. Short Care Counselling which is available to those who are not eligible for a Plan or do not have counselling available in their current NDIS Plan. Short Care Counselling is funded to offer clients up to 3 free counselling sessions. During these sessions any further counselling needs will be assessed. Please note any further counselling with SECCA is not funded.
