* COVID 19 Update of Services : All sessions for the foreseeable future will be conducted via telephone or video conference. During this time, the counsellor will only see Adolescents (12+ ) and Adults (individuals and couples). Fees for phone sessions are $50 (individuals) and $70 couples. Video consults are at standard fees.
Empowered Mind Counselling Service provides a confidential, supportive and affordable counselling and psychotherapy service to children (8 years and over), adolescents, adults, couples and family members. Face-to-face sessions are held at Berwick consulting rooms, or alternatively Phone counselling (for adults) is provided Australia Wide.
Counselling can help with a range of issues, such as Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Stress, Anger Management, Grief/Loss, Difficult Life Transitions, and Relationship counselling. By adopting a range of therapeutic styles, the counsellor will work with you to overcome your presenting difficulties. No person or relationship is the same and therefore counselling is tailored to each individual, couple or family with the aim of helping the client(s) facilitate positive change and/or relieve distress.
It is normal for new clients to feel nervous at their first session - or even making that initial contact. This may be due to discomfort in expressing thoughts or feelings, a fear of being judged, or an uncertainty about the counselling process. The counsellor is there to assist you - at your own pace, free from judgement and without pressure.
Referrals and Mental Health Plans are not required to access the counselling service. For more information about the services provided, practice location, fee schedules, hours of operation and the counsellor's profile, click on the links at the top of the page.
Simply call, text or email and an appointment will be arranged at a suitable time for you.

Relationship & Family Counselling
Couple / Family Relationship therapy.
Many couples or family members seek counselling when their issues have reached a point where significant damage has been done to the relationship. Some only attend as a last resort - when the relationship is on the verge of ending. Addressing the issues early enables a better chance of resolution, recovery and/or moving forward in a healthier direction.

Mental Health & Well Being Counselling
Difficulties present themselves in every aspect of life - work, school, relationships, parenting, hobbies, sport, and everything else in between. Some problems we encounter can feel completely perplexing and/or overwhelming. They can impact on our life so much that all of our attention becomes focused on the negative, and we fail to acknowledge the positives surrounding it.
- Anxiety disorders
- Self Esteem
- Sexual abuse
- Bereavement (grief and loss)
- Life transition and adjustment issues
- Workplace conflict, retrenchment or retirement
- Health issues
Counselling provides a space where each person can be heard and patterns of behaviour addressed in order to improve the relationship and/or circumstances.
Counselling provides a safe, confidential and supportive environment where an individual can openly share personal thoughts, feelings and concerns with the aim of improving their situation.
Counselling for Adolescents and Children
Young people face a range of stressful and difficult circumstances that can affect their mental health and well-being. Adolescence is a significant time of rapid development and change - cognitively, emotionally, physically, psychologically and socially. It can be a tricky and confronting time for teenagers - and their parents.
When mental health problems (such as anxiety and depression) occur during this stage, it can have a considerable impact on the development of important life skills when left untreated.
