Counselling by Dementia Australia

If you have dementia, or you’re caring for someone living with dementia, it’s normal to experience a range of good and bad feelings. You’re not alone. Dementia Australia offers free, confidential, professional counselling for individuals, families, couples and professional carers at all stages of a dementia journey.

Counselling is important as it can help you understand what you, or someone you care about, is going through. It can be good to talk with a professional about your:
– emotional reactions
– family and culture
– living arrangements
– dementia symptoms
– changed behaviours.

Everyone will experience dementia differently. Counselling support can help individuals, couples and families to:
– gain a better understanding of the impact of dementia
– develop strategies to respond to feelings of stress or mixed emotions
– plan for the future, by setting goals and seeking referrals for practice support.

We can speak with you face-to-face, on the phone or via video conferencing.
