Changing for Good

The Changing for Good service provides a one-to-one telephone counselling service for men who want to maintain respectful relationships without using violence. The service aims to support and strengthen relationships with others, improve wellbeing, and increase participation in community life.

What is the Changing for Good service?

Changing for Good is a free multi-session phone counselling service for men who want to develop healthy and respectful relationships with the people in their life.

Changing for Good will help men to continue to have violence-free relationships and has two programs available:

  1. Post Men’s Behaviour Change Program – a six-month telephone counselling program that helps men continue the work they started in a Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP).
  2. Violence Prevention Program – a two-month telephone counselling program for men who are worried that their thoughts and behaviours may escalate to physical violence.

 

Both programs will help men to explore the impact and motivations of their behaviours on others. Our Changing for Good counsellors will help the men work on the areas they want to improve, whether it is intimate relationships, parenting, friendships or work colleagues.

 

Who can join Changing for Good?

To apply for one of the programs, you will need to meet one of the scenarios below:

  • I am not currently using physical violence, and I have completed a Men’s Behaviour Change Program within the last 12 months. If this is your situation, you may be eligible for the Post Men’s Behaviour Change Programfind out more.
  • I am not currently using physical violence and I have not used physical violence in the past, but I am concerned that my thoughts and behaviour may escalate to violence. If this is your situation, you may be eligible for the Violence Prevention Program find out more.

 

What other services are available if Changing for Good is not right for me?

Changing for Good is not suitable for men who are currently using physical violence. A Men’s Behaviour Change Program will work with men to develop strategies to stop using violence in their relationships. To find a Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP) near you, please visit:
