The end of the year is a time of reflection for many of us – looking back on the year that was, thinking and planning for what the new year might bring. It can be exciting, and overwhelming, and sometimes even a bit demoralising if you haven’t made the progress or change that you had been hoping for.
The Mental Health Plan Scheme has been around in Australia for a number of years now.
Counsellingathome.com founder and director, Adrian Holmes, talks in this short video about some of the motivations behind starting Australia’s first dedicated online counselling service, primarily as a response to the inherent issues with the Mental Health Plan Scheme.
The word ‘counselling’ is pretty loaded. People generally have a lot of ideas about what counselling is, and what it means to seek counselling help. Unfortunately a lot of it can often be quite negative.
Hi, I’m Cassie. I’m one of the counsellors on the CounsellingAtHome platform. I originally decided to get into providing online counselling because I believed it had benefits to offer that traditional in-person counselling did not. I saw it as an opportunity to provide more affordable and convenient counselling without the barriers posed by travel to a physical location.
At CounsellingAtHome we believe that online counselling is the way of the future for all types of counselling support, self-growth and therapy. We have invested a lot into developing our service to be the most innovative in meeting the changing therapeutic needs of Australians now and into the future.

If you’re like most Australian couples, the possibility of divorce has popped up in conversation at least once. It’s surprisingly common—well, maybe not so surprising given that current divorce rates are hovering above 50%.
If you’re suffering from anxiety, you’re not alone: every year in Australia, there are over 2 million other people suffering with you.
