Services We Provide

View All Services

Throughout our lives, many people encounter testing situations that question our coping capabilities. Often the support of our friends and family is enough to see us through these hard times. Occasionally though, these difficult situations are too much for us to bear and we’re not sure how to pull everything together again. In such situations, it’s time to seek profession help. Endeavour Wellness offers counselling services from a team of skilled, experienced psychologists who are qualified to assist with issues such as addiction and relationship.

In your first session we may discuss the likely course of action and the types of therapies that will be employed. The various styles and their appropriateness for counselling for different issues will guide the program developed for you. Your psychologist is well versed in many different modalities and can adapt to what seems to be working or the most suitable to you as an individual. More information about the different types of therapy we offer can be found here.

How many counselling sessions will I need?2018-03-12T07:04:27+00:00

It may sound flippant but this is a ‘how long’s a piece of string’ question. There are different types of counselling and some people get so much benefit that they have included counselling into their lives for many years. Others may visit us just a few times. You are unique and your situation is unique, and whilst we may have encountered the emotions you are feeling before, the mix of things that has caused them will no doubt be different. You will decide how many sessions you attend, not us.

What can I expect from my first counselling session?2018-03-12T07:08:07+00:00

To begin with, your psychologist will want to get to know you. They will outline the process and ask you some questions to gauge what it is that has brought you to the session. There is never any judgement or criticism. As you would imagine, our counsellors have heard most things before. We’re here to help and we have proven methods. Your first session will be all about making sure you are feeling comfortable, unrushed and relaxed. We are very privileged to hear what you have to say and we take our responsibility to you very seriously.

What is a psychologist?2018-09-05T06:12:22+00:00

There is a great deal of misinformation about what a psychologist actually is. This can cause stigma, preventing people from seeing a psychologist and this drives us crazy! If you have a sore throat you see a doctor, if you have a sore back you see a physiotherapi st, and if you have stuff in your life that’s making you unhappy or anxious, you should see a psychologist. It really is no more complicated than that. The Psychologists at Endeavour Wellness are fully trained and registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

Is counselling confidential?2018-03-12T11:35:21+00:00

The relationship between you and your psychologist is very similar to that between you and your doctor. The details you share with your psychologist are confidential and won’t be used for any other purpose other than your diagnosis and treatment.

We have a governing body: the Psychology Board of Australia, and a Code of Ethics. The only exceptions to confidentiality will be in the case where the law has been broken and your files are subpoenaed by a court.

Is counselling for me?2018-03-12T11:37:25+00:00

Psychologists offer sound advice and techniques for improving the way you see the world. The net-effect of these methodologies is an improvement in your outlook and a renewed ability to enjoy life once more. You can’t put a price on happiness but if you could, it would be significantly more than what most people spend on their own mental health. If you haven’t tried counselling, book in with Endeavour and give it a go. It’s good to talk.

What is counselling?2018-03-12T11:38:20+00:00

Life is full of complications. Counselling or therapy is a talk-based approach to getting help from a professional, in our case a fully trained psychologist, to deal with these issues. You can see a psychologist on your own, or in small groups, with your partner or family for example. Psychologists are professionally trained in proven methods and techniques that can help you cope or improve the way in which you handle various situations.
