Counselling

** COVID-19 Update – Engender Equality offers a counselling service for any person affected by family violence or intimate partner abuse. We are a state-wide service with offices in each region of Tasmania.
If restrictions related to COVID-19 require it, Engender Equality counselling and support is available remotely via phone and video. At all other times our services are available in-person as well as by phone and video.
If you are unsure about video platforms and would like assistance to set up Zoom or Skype we are available to gently talk you through creating an account and becoming familiar with how it works. More details about phone and video counselling can be found at our website: engenderequality.org.au.
