The WA AIDS Council provides counselling services, conducted in a supportive and confidential environment close to Perth's CBD.
Counsellors are experienced in assisting clients to address a range of issues including sexuality, gender issues, relationships, behaviour change, sexual health and living with HIV.

What is Counselling?

Counselling provides an opportunity to explore aspects of your life in a nonjudgmental and supportive atmosphere.
Your counsellor will help you to examine issues, discover options and make decisions to enhance physical and emotional well-being.

Anyone can access our counselling services! 


• People living with HIV, their partners, immediate family members or carers;
• People contemplating HIV testing or waiting for results;
• People from diverse gender and sexuality communities, around issues of identity, family, relationships, sexuality and gender.

Please speak to a Counsellor if you are unsure whether the service will meet your needs.

How long will it take?

A counselling session lasts approximately 50 minutes.
Depending on the issue being discussed you may find just 1 or 2 sessions are enough.
However, for other issues, regular sessions over a longer period may be appropriate.

Please contact us to find out more

How much will it cost?

We work with a 'sliding payment scale', so please discuss these fees with your Counsellor.

Our Mission

To minimise the impact and further transmission of HIV, other blood borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections. To reduce social, legal and policy barriers which prevent access to health information and effective support and prevention services.

WA AIDS Council would like to acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of this country throughout Australia, and their strength, resilience and connection to land and community. In particular, the WA AIDS Council would like to acknowledge the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in which our office is located.
