Women Assist Counselling was established in 2016 to fulfill the need for a specialised counselling service just for women and teenage girls in Melbourne. Assisting and empowering them to become stronger and more confident to make decisions in their lives. Just as there are services by men for men, we hope women and teenage girls will feel welcome and supported with us.
Our aim is to deliver a counselling service just for women and teens in Australia and to provide an environment, where they can feel safe to discuss their concerns. We provide face to face sessions in our lovely counselling room in Reservoir, which is in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, and so any woman or teenage girl of Australia can access our counselling service, we also provide Skype and telephone counselling sessions.
We work with all clients in a respectful way, to build on their existing strengths. We are committed to client safety and attend regular professional supervision and participate in ongoing personal and professional development.

Our mission is to honour the value of shared experiences, and the diversity of the women and teens in our community. To inspire women and teens in Australia to step out of their personal comfort limitations and supporting them to discover connection of them self. Refocusing negative mindsets toward optimistic and achievable ambitions which will create a positive impact in all of their relationships, communities and the world.
Women Assist Counselling acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we provide our services. Paying respect to their Elders past and present, and expressing hope for reconciliation, justice and the recognition of the ongoing living culture of all Aboriginal people.
