General Interest

Family contact service

Family Contact Service provides experienced and qualified contact supervisors for supervised contact when there is Family Court Orders or Children’s Court Orders or mutual agreement between the parties, which may be a Parenting Order in place or other mutual agreement made between parents. 

Making The Difference At Making the Difference the basis of all counselling is objective and supportive listening and respect for the client as an individual. Processing things previously put aside by the pressures of everyday life can be difficult, but the opportunity to explore your feelings in a private, confidential and non-judgmental atmosphere can be a relief in itself. Counselling provides an opportunity to gain new perspectives and can encourage a greater dimension of wellbeing.
