whAT WE DO

Grace Counselling serves the local community by providing counselling resources and services through a network of churches.


We offer support groups, face-to-face counselling, lay counsellor training, counsellor resources and Christian therapist recommendations






MISSION VISION VALUES

Grace Counselling serves the local community by providing counselling resources and services through a network of churches.


Grace Counselling was birthed out of a passion to see God's Church serve a broken and hurting world. The demand however often outweighs the resource, so the vision grew into seeing churches pool their counselling related resources to serve each other and the community.

 

This site aims to be an open-access resource to aid all forms of counselling from church based, volunteer driven counsellors to professionals in the private sector and include resources from support groups to personal growth courses.

 

We also have lists of counselling professionals in our community and an overview of addiction treatment centres with direct links to their websites.

 

Our heart is to also see the standard of training available for lay volunteer counsellors in our churches grow, so if you are interested in further counselling training, then check out our upcoming training courses.

 

At Grace Counselling, we are all about being part of God's plan in putting the pieces of people's lives back together [Psalm 20.24 MSG].


Join us on this journey.
