Counselling Australia is an inclusive, non-judgmental practice with wheelchair access.
Counselling provides a non-judgmental, confidential space for you to discuss your issues and concerns with a trained professional. Counselling helps you to clarify your issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. Sometimes just the process of talking through your problems with someone is helpful.
There is no problem too big or too small for counselling. Common issues people seek counselling for include:
- Relationship issues
- Grief and loss
- Alcohol and other substance abuse
- Counselling Brisbane and Counselling Ipswich: We provide counselling at our offices in Moorooka and Booval, while Skype and telephone appointments are also available for your convenience.

What happens at an appointment?
During the initial appointment we work together to gain a shared understanding of what brings you to Creative Life Solutions, and what it is you would like to achieve. We will identify the goals of care and develop a treatment plan to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
Skype and telephone appointments
Skype and telephone appointments offer more flexibility to you as a client. If the times currently available do not suit you, please contact me to discuss alternative times which may be negotiated
I pride myself on the care and consideration I give to my clients. Whist I realise unforeseen situations may occur from time to time I would really appreciate at least 48 hours notice if you are unable to attend your appointment. I can than offer your appointment to someone on my waiting list and reschedule a more suitable time for you.
Appointments not attended or cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will incur a $80 late fee to assist with covering the cost of the session.
As part of providing a counselling service to you, I will need to collect and record personal information that is relevant to your situation. This information is a necessary part of the assessment, planning and counselling service.
Accredited Mental Health Social Workers are bound by a code of ethics, which includes maintaining confidentiality. However, there may be exceptional circumstances where I may need to discuss your information with others, such as when there is concern about your safety or the safety of others. Please feel free to speak with me regarding the situations in which your information may need to be shared with appropriate people.
Making an appointment today is a positive step toward living the life you deserve.

Conversely, we often meet emotions such as sadness or frustration with a large “please leave now” sign. These feelings can quickly drag us down into the pits of despair, impacting our bodies and
Trudy Jacobsen | Grief and loss If you’re like many people, you’re okay letting the shoulder of your shirt get tear-soaked. You’re a good person, and being that “rock” is honourable.
