Available Allied Health Services

Our team of dedicated Allied Health Professionals have many years of collective experience helping employees and employers across a wide range of industries to achieve a better quality of life through targeted mental health support.

We believe that all people deserve the opportunity to lead a happy and purposeful life. Not only is employment an important part of a balanced life, there are also strong links between mental health and ongoing employment.


Counselling is a large component of the support we offer.
Individual counselling often takes the form of one-on-one sessions with an Allied Health Services Psychologist or Social Worker at your local Employment Plus office.
Our counselling services can help you address and work through a range of personal and professional challenges, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Anger management
  • Personal or family concerns
  • Drug and alcohol barriers

All counselling sessions are private and confidential, and available at no cost to you.

Please note that if you have missed three scheduled counselling sessions in a financial year, we will be unable to continue making counselling appointments for you, due to government restrictions.
