Single session and multi-session counselling help

MensLine Australia provides single session services to all callers and online counselling users; and multi-session services to eligible clients. Understand how our counselling and support services can help you.

MensLine Australia provides single-session services to all callers and online counselling users; and multi-session services to eligible clients.

 

Single session counselling

In a single session, each interaction is treated as a stand-alone counselling session where we work with the caller on the issue that is of greatest concern to them. Our professional counsellors work with clients to help them recognise their skills and inner resources.

At the beginning of each single session, clients are assessed as to what their level of risk may be. The outcome of this assessment might mean that additional or alternative support may be required.

 

Multi-session counselling

Our multi-session service is a tailored program for clients who may require up to four sessions with the same counsellor. In these structured sessions, counsellors work alongside clients to achieve their goals.

Our counsellors offer clients pathways to community support and the development of internal capacity.
