Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we may experience at some point in life. Through counselling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. If you are experience intense sadness or have lost the motivation for living, seeking help from a caring professional is strongly advised or call Lifeline on 13 11 14 to speak with a trained operator.
Unfortunately grief & loss is something that most of us will face at some stage of life. If you are feeling down due to loss of a job, health or struggling with grief due to the loss or death of a loved one, talking to a supportive friend or compassionate counsellor from Vent Counselling can help you at this difficult time.
Spiritual counselling is also available on request to help you through this sad time.
Relationship counselling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship. Couples counselling is not restricted to male/female relationships, counselling is also available for same sex couples or transsexual relationships.
Vent Counselling is a private and confidential counselling service situated in The Sandhurst Podiatry and Consulting Rooms at 395 High Street, Golden Square.
Physically meeting with a counsellor can sometimes be difficult therefore I do offer Skype or phone counselling as an option. Home visits can also be arranged but will incur an extra cost.
Appointments are required for all counselling services so please ensure you have made this prior to attending so as not to be disappointed.

This 11 year old boy from the Bendigo area helped further develop my Stop Nail Biting Program. From the get go, he did an awesome job of putting into practice counselling & other skills taught to him and in the process helped himself to stop biting his nails.

I have done a "Stop Nail Biting" course with Sandy, and thanks to her kindness and support I have stopped biting my nails for good. It's great no longer being conscious of hiding my stumps in public, for photos, etc. Thanks Sandy!! You're a legend!!
