Our approach to counselling

Safe Place Therapy was founded after many clients indicated they felt unheard, unsafe, dismissed or “like a number” when talking with professionals. We believe that the most important things in therapy are feeling safe and being heard. We create a safe place by ensuring:

  1. The client’s needs are always put first and their experience is the focal point.
  2. That we provide ongoing safety from the beginning to the end of counselling, building strategies to cope with a day-to-day life.
  3. That we provide high quality professional support that is evidence-based.

Safe Place Therapy was started to create an environment where clientes can come to discuss difficult mental health issues and personal problems. Our team is dedicated to providing counselling services in Melbourne that is safe, professional, affordable and flexible. We offer individual counselling and relationship counselling, providing after hours and weekend sessions.
