Reliable Counselling Services in Perth

With an office in Midland, Bethesda is well positioned to support those in the Midland, Ellenbrook, Perth Hills, northern suburbs and the eastern wheatbelt areas with face to face appointments. With online services, we are able to support those further beyond.

Established in 2012, Bethesda – which means “house of Healing, Mercy and Grace” provides counselling services that are compassionate, sensitive, respectful of dignity and diversity, and have a strong focus on both relational and personal healing.

Narelle Williams is Bethesda’s principal counsellor and family therapist and understands that every client is individual and unique in their life experience, issues and challenges. “One size does not fit all” and so she works creatively to craft each session to best respect and meet her clients’ individual needs.

Narelle takes an eclectic and holistic approach to her work. Not everyone responds well to talking therapies, and that is why she offers a variety of different approaches incorporating talking, art and creative therapies into her sessions. This ensures that the uniqueness of her clients is honored during their journeys towards healing and wholeness.

At Bethesda, you will also find recognition of the part that our spirituality plays in our mental and emotional health. You will be respected and encouraged to explore your spirituality in a way that is meaningful to you. Narelle has a biblical worldview and offers in depth Christian Counselling for those who have a belief or wish to explore their understanding of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. However, please be reassured; your counsellor will not be “preachy” or impose any spiritual beliefs on you. You will always be respected in your own worldview, whatever that may be.                                                                                                                  .

Over the years, Bethesda’s counselling services in Perth have had a significant focus and impact in the areas of relationship counselling, couples counselling and marriage counselling.

Narelle has a real passion for supporting couples who are struggling with conflict, despair, affairs, problems with sex and intimacy, disillusionment and/or heartache in their marriage relationship and is often sought after for her sensitive and genuine approach to these issues.

Family therapy is a complimentary counselling service provided by Bethesda, and has proven to be helpful for many people who have been looking for someone to assist them in addressing their interpersonal challenges within their actual family unit. There are often conflicts and difficult to resolve issues found within family units and their relationships.
