Left and Right Counselling is a free counselling organisation for young people aged 12 to 25. Left and Right uses a person-centred therapeutic approach to empower our clients to build resilience and coping skills for the future.

 

What is a person-centred approach? Person-centred therapy uses a nonauthoritative approach that allows clients to take more of a lead in discussions so that, in the process, they will discover their own solutions. The therapist acts as a compassionate facilitator, listening without judgment and acknowledging the client’s experience without moving the conversation in another direction. The therapist is there to encourage and support the client and to guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery.

 

At Left and Right, we use professional counsellors who are highly skilled in assessment, case conceptualisation and the therapeutic process needed to offer indepth support. All of our counsellors are registered with the Australian Counselling Association or the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and receive mandatory and regular supervision to ensure they are practicing at an optimum level.

 

Left and Right believes in empowering the next generation and allowing them flexibility and choice in their health journey. Our clients are able to choose their own session times, duration and frequency.
