Lifeline offers counselling in Woy Woy

Lifeline has decided to expand its services by offering face-to-face counselling on the Peninsula..

Counselling will be offered at Mary Mac's Place on Tuesdays between 9am and 1pm.

Lifeline Central Coast's psychology coordinator Mr Paul Armitage said the new service will help with the growing and unmet need for counselling support for people in the Woy Woy area.

Mr Armitage said people come to counselling to talk confidentially about their problems, to help find solutions and improve their mental health and well-being.

He said people don't have to be at crisis point or contemplating suicide to access Lifeline's service.

"Counselling can help you to increase your ability to deal with stress and stressful situations, look at areas of personal growth and build on your strengths," Mr Armitage said.

"Whether people are feeling lonely or sad, facing a personal crisis, experiencing relationship problems, overwhelmed with anger or feeling unable to cope, we have an expert for them to talk to in a safe environment," he said.

He said all Lifeline counsellors were tertiary-trained and accredited professionals and were also graduates of Lifeline's Personal Counselling Training Program.

People can self-refer or have a health professional refer them.

The counselling sessions are held at Mary Mac's at 100 Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy.

Lifeline also offers face to face counselling at Wyong and Wyoming.

To make an appointment, call Lifeline on 4320 7400.
