Counselling

Our experienced counsellors help many children, young people and adults each year to manage their feelings and actions, understand their behaviour, gain confidence to make necessary changes in their lives and increase their overall sense of well-being. We offer support in two main areas: Parent & Adolescent Counselling and Sexual Abuse Counselling. 

Please visit the Counselling page for more information.

Support for Parents

Junction Australia offers support for parents and guardians who have children that are expressing concerning behaviour. ‘Who’s in Charge’ is a program for parents of children with destructive or aggressive behaviour. This can be very challenging for parents to manage, and Who’s in Charge teaches parents strategic abilities to best manage children in these situations.

Parents and guardians can also make an appointment to speak to our experienced counsellor if they are facing other difficulties with their children. Please see 'Counselling' above for more information.

Siblings in Focus

‘Siblings in Focus’ is a program that provides the opportunity for children to take time out of their caring role so they can enjoy being a child, and spend time with other children of their age to develop skills and better cope with their life.

All of the children who participate in Siblings in Focus have one, or more, siblings with a disability or illness. Children in these situations can become isolated, which can impact on their mental health and development.
