Peninsula Counselling Solutions

   Empowering YOU with solutions.

" Love the life you live,

live the life you love ."

Welcome to Peninsula Counselling Solutions

Peninsula Counselling Solutions offer support in many areas of counselling such as anxiety, depression, mindfulness, relationships and stress management. We offer assistance to all areas along the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula.

We can help empower you to facilitate change in your life!

We provide extensive support in areas such as Anxiety counselling, Depression counselling and Relationship counselling, as well as Postnatal Depression counselling.

We also offer assistance to all areas of Victoria and Australia thanks to Phone Counselling.

Phone Counselling is just as effective as face to face Counselling. 

Due to the current events of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will continue to offer support via Phone Counselling. We have made the decision to not offer Face To Face Counselling at this time to help "flatten the curve", and protect the health of all our clients and our team.

Please see more information on our page "Counselling During Coronavirus". We are dedicated to helping you in any way we can.

When you call us you won't speak to a receptionist, you will speak to our Counsellor who will listen to you. This helps you by speaking to a Counsellor directly to make a connection and not just someone to make an appointment with someone that you have never spoken to that you will be unsure that you will feel comfortable speaking to when attending your appointment.

Peninsula Counselling Solutions are also one of the few Counselling services that specialises in offering support to Dads and Mums that may be experiencing Postnatal Depression also known as Postpartum Depression. Postnatal / Postpartum Depression currently affects one in 10 mothers and up to 30% of fathers although these numbers are growing and only based on cases reported.  

Symptoms include and can present as :

  • Anxiety
  • Feeling inadequate in taking care of the baby
  • Exhaustion
  • Trouble bonding with the baby
  • Poor self-care
  • Worry about harming self, baby, or partner

A more detailed article on this for both men and women can be found on the Postnatal Depression page.

Peninsula Counselling Solutions is dedicated and passionate in also assisting you through the empathy of lived experience and counselling techniques that can help assist you through these challenges.

Please see our "Empowering Resources" and "Poems To Empower" pages that offer resources to help you with affirmation anytime you should need it.

The poems are part of "Writing Out Of Depression", an initiative we began some years ago.

These poems were written as part of a process of someone writing whilst experiencing Depression as a way to also write and get their way out of it.

Writing in any form, has been shown to be an affective way of articulating feelings, cathartically expelling them and helping to acknowledge them all at the same time. It is powerfully therapeutic!

There has been much research into the effectiveness of this, similar to that of Art Therapy.

We are big advocates for the effectiveness of such techniques and have seen the results first hand.

There will be more information on "Writing Out Of Depression" constantly so please check in with us regularly for updates.

We are here to help and empower you!

No referral or mental health plan is required to see our Counsellor.
