Are you feeling overwhelmed by cost of living financial pressures?

You're not alone in facing the stress and mental anguish caused by Australia's current cost of living crisis. Recent reports from Lifeline have shown a significant increase of 49% in referral searches related to financial issues, highlighting the widespread impact of this issue.

The personal stress resulting from financial challenges can be overwhelming, regardless of how much we try to push it aside. Whether it's the struggle to meet rent or mortgage payments, provide for basic needs, or manage other expenses, financial stress can leave you feeling frightened, overwhelmed, and uncertain about the way forward.

Fortunately, seeking counselling can provide a valuable path out of this overwhelming cycle and help you regain control—even when your actual financial situation remains unchanged. Often, it is our perception of the circumstances that can be more distressing than the reality itself.

Counselling offers a safe and compassionate space where you can navigate the complex emotions associated with these experiences. Working with a counselor, you can explore your feelings, develop effective coping strategies, and discover ways to move forward despite the challenges that so many of us are currently facing.

Remember, reaching out for support is a sign of strength, and counselling can provide the guidance and tools you need to navigate this difficult period. By taking this step, you can find solace, develop resilience, and discover a clearer path toward a more stable and hopeful future.

You don't have to navigate these challenges alone.

In partnership with Ignite Counselling and Psychotherapy, Fair Wealth Australia offers a safe and supportive environment for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to explore and express their emotions, thoughts, and concerns regarding the financial stress they may be experiencing in life.

Our experienced counselors are equipped with proven therapeutic techniques to guide you through these challenges in life, build resilience, and develop practical strategies to manage the stress, anxiety, and financial threats that can arise during these challenging times.

Here's a new way to access professional counselling services at just $11 per week.

For over 75 years, our not-for-profit community organisation has been dedicated to making mental health care services more accessible and affordable for more people. Our mission was sparked by the alarming findings of the 2020 Australian Psychological Society report, which revealed that one in three Australians who needed mental health care did not receive it due to financial constraints.

This inspired us to take action and ensure that more people young and old have the opportunity to access the support they need, regardless of their financial circumstances. By striving to remove the barriers of cost, we aim to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for people seeking mental health care services.

Partnered with Ignite Counselling Services

In order to fulfill our mission, we have partnered with Ignite, an experienced provider of 10x annual Medicare-accredited counselling sessions. We are proud to offer these sessions as part of our standard annual membership, which costs just $11 per week.

This partnership enables us to extend accessible and affordable counselling services to men across Australia, providing them with support that was previously unavailable to them through profit-driven private practices. Through this collaboration, we aim to ensure that the majority of men in Australia now have the opportunity to access the counselling they may need, promoting their mental well-being and fostering a supportive community.

Feel free to reach out to us at 1300 216 215 to engage in a confidential discussion regarding your requirements and where we can address any questions you might have as well.

I walked into your office. Broken. Shattered, and with no will to continue living. You opened your arms, welcomed me with all of my baggage, and listened to my story without judgement.

Every week we meet, I leave your office renewed, refreshed and challenged all at the same time.
