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.
How much will it cost?
We work with a 'sliding payment scale', so please discuss these fees with your Counsellor.
