“Life is not what it’s supposed to be. It is what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.”

Counselling Services in Perth

Bethesda offers you Individual Counselling, Marriage Counselling, Family Therapy and Christian Counselling services for a wide range of issues.

You Are Not Alone

Life often throws us unexpected curve balls where we can be left feeling alone and confused, facing disappointments, heartaches and fears, distressing losses and relationship wounds. Sometimes our challenges have their roots in things of the past and so we may need to look back for a season to be able to move forward.  One of the greatest contributors to our ability to adjust to life’s challenges, to heal, grow and move forward, is to have understanding support. You don’t need to face your  challenges alone.

Narelle listens carefully and compassionately to her clients and works alongside them to creatively design a therapy plan to meet their varying needs. She brings a sensitive, intuitive and respectful approach to her work with individuals, couples and families.

Contact Narelle at Bethesda today to find out more about how therapy can support you. With an office in Midland, Bethesda is well positioned to support those in the Midland, Ellenbrook, Perth Hills, northern suburbs and eastern wheatbelt areas.

Take that first step and Bethesda Counselling will help you to explore and make sense of your life, heal, grow, plan and reach your goals.



Family Therapy

Working with the whole family or a few members of the family together, can often initiate healing opportunities that would not otherwise be accessed through individual therapy. Family therapy aims at improving the space between members within a family unit so that each member is better supported and the family itself can function more healthily. At the heart of the family, is relationship and identity.



Marriage Counselling

We take a hope focused approach with our married couples and provide them with a safe space to re-connect, heal and repair. A skilled marriage counsellor can help you to interrupt and replace harmful patterns of communication and thinking with healthier interactions. You will be sensitively supported as you explore new strategies and learn new skills to help repair and strengthen your relationship and family life.



Individual Counselling

Help and sensitive support is available for a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, grief, relationship issues, trauma, abuse and neglect, unresolved childhood issues, pregnancy loss and life transitions. Where ever you are at in your journey, individual counselling sessions will provide you with a safe and dignified space to explore, heal, grow and make sense of your life.



Christian Counselling

Experience the transformative power of Christ centered counselling. With a holistic approach that focuses on the care of your whole person; body, soul and spirit, you will find a safe and spiritually sensitive space for you to explore, heal and grow both individually and in the context of your relationships.  Counselling draws from and utilizes the best professionally recognized and evidence based practices whilst keeping biblical principles as a firm foundation.



Grief Counselling

At Bethesda, you will find someone who understands the world of grief. It is one of the most uncomfortable places to be living in. You will find a safe, caring and dignified space where you can feel and release your pain, explore and process your losses, reach acceptance, find new strengths and meaning in life and learn to adjust so that you can continue to live your life with meaning and purpose.



Post Abortion Counselling

Both men and women often experience intense emotional pain and mental anguish long after their abortion experience(s). There can be an intense and unexpected world of grief to navigate through; complicated by guilt, shame, anger, regret or remorse. This can hit sometimes immediately, but often many years later.  Don’t go it alone. Bethesda offers you safe, caring and confidential support and can show you the pathway for healing and peace.



Pre Marital Counselling and Preparation

Marriage is a team sport; you either win together or lose together. Invest some time and energy now so that you can build a strong and healthy marriage into the future.



Couples Counselling

Couples Counselling seeks to assist couples in strengthening and repairing their most intimate relationship so that they can enjoy the more fulfilling and rewarding side to doing life together as partners and companions.



Online Counselling

Safe and flexible counselling solutions are offered via phone, Skype and email sessions. No matter where you are in Australia, you can have access to support from an experienced online counsellor.
