Welcome to The Counselling Space in Coffs Harbour, where we strengthen the emotional and mental wellbeing of children, young people, adults and families.  

The Counselling Space

is home to a range of well respected counsellors and therapists in Coffs Harbour. 

We have therapists specialising in:

  • EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) for trauma and mental health
  • relationship (marriage) counselling
  • child play therapy 
  • young people's wellbeing
  • neurodivergence (ASD, ADHD etc)
  • anxiety and depression
  • grief and loss
  • employment conflict and concerns
  • navigating life's transitions. 

At The Counselling Space Coffs Harbour we understand that every person is unique, with their own stories and experience, and their own hopes, goals and ideas for their life. 

We also understand that sometimes past hurts, trauma, hurtful relationships, and inequalities can erode our sense of self, our confidence and our ability to have hope for our future.

Our work helps people recapture hope and find new ways to live life and engage in relationships that are healthy, stronger, and more fulfilling.

The Counselling Space: welcoming and inclusive

We acknowledge the Gumbaynggirr people as the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.  We give our thanks and pay our respects to their elders past, present and future. We open our minds and hearts to understanding the impact of intergenerational trauma, and stand alongside our first nation peoples in working for redress.

We recognise our LGBTIQ+ communities have unique health and wellbeing needs, and have been impacted by stigma and discrimination.  Our services are inclusive, welcoming and culturally safe.

We are a neurodiverse led and welcoming practice.  Rather than focusing on diagnoses as problems that need to be corrected, we are neuro-affirming and support a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach to individual assessment and intervention.  Our work references societal barriers and discrimination as the issues that need to be addressed.
