A safe place for psychological healing

***Please be advised that due to exceptional demand, we are currently not taking on new clients.***

A safe, healing place for people of the LGBTIQ community providing psychological counselling for individuals.

We are located in Fitzroy North, an easy tram ride from the city.

Our qualified and experienced practitioners identify as members of the LGBTIQ community. They really understand what it's like, and that means you don't have to explain yourself, or worry about being judged. You can just focus on the issues that matter to you.
