Free counselling service for youth and families in the Yarra Ranges

We now have a free counselling service for youth, young adults and their families: We are excited to announce that Inspiro have won a contract to provide Youth and Family Counselling Services for the Yarra Ranges Council.

Youth and young adult counselling services started at Inspiro in March 2017

The youth counselling service is being transitioned from Council to Inspiro with the process to be fully completed by 1st July 2017. From Monday 20th March, Inspiro will take over all new clients for Youth and Family Counselling in the Yarra Ranges, while Council’s service will continue to see pre-existing clients until the end of June.

Youth and teen counselling is free for youth aged 12-25 and living, working or studying in the Yarra Ranges

Inspiro will be providing the free youth counselling service for young people between 12 – 25 years who may be dealing with depression, anxiety, bullying, harassment or managing relationships. The service will be helpful for young people who may be feeling down, stressed out, anxious or confused, or need help to gain life skills and build their confidence.

We offer counselling for a range of issues effecting the lives of young people

Inspiro’s Youth and Family Counselling is a form of therapy addressing the physical, mental and emotional issues, and problems of young adults, teenagers and their families.

Child and Youth counselling helps teens and young adults who are struggling with issues such as low self-esteem, low confidence, depression, eating disorders, anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, trauma or abuse, or who are having behavioural difficulties at home or in school.

We help youth and their families with up to 12 free youth or youth and family counselling sessions at no cost

Young adult and youth counselling is typically short-term counselling (up to 12 sessions are free) used to help youth and their families assess the issues that are present in the family, set goals, improve communication, mediate conflicts, and provide direction for the future.
