Possibilities for Change is a Counselling and Psychotherapy practice in Glen Iris in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. We provide a respectful and safe environment offering individual counselling, group work and supervision.

What is Counselling?

Counselling, psychotherapy and perhaps the more generic word ‘therapy’ uses an interpersonal relationship to help develop a client’s understanding of themselves. Armed with this knowledge, the client will be able to make changes in his or her life.

Some key points about therapy:

  • Therapy usually takes place on a one-to-one basis, in couples or may be done in group settings
  • The client is able to choose a therapist and therapy style which is best suited to their particular situation – please do not settle for someone you don’t feel safe or comfortable with, even if you have been recommended to that person – there will be a right fit for you
  • The relationship between the therapist and the person is crucial for any therapeutic work to take place. I strongly encourage you to find the person you have trust in, both from a safety perspective as well as the way they work.
  • The therapy process involves a ‘getting to know you’ period just like any new relationship
  • A therapist and client will normally sit with one another for an hour focusing on what the client brings to the session
  • The therapist and client play an equal role in the therapy process. There is no ‘expert’ in a therapy relationship although the counsellor does have solid training which helps them to see or identify things the client may not see for themselves
  • Everything that happens in therapy is confidential, except if necessary for your own safety or where another person’s safety is at risk
