Did you know that you may be able to access free counselling through our Student Training Clinic?
Relationships Australia (SA) not only provides counselling and mediation services to clients but also offers training, education and placement support for people seeking to gain qualifications in counselling, mediation and community work through the Institute. This means that from time to time, when you attend an appointment or participate in an education program at Relationships Australia (SA), the practitioner may have a student placed with them.
We also run a Student Training Clinic, which can provide you with 3 free fortnightly counselling sessions (individual or couples counselling) conducted by student counsellors in their final stages of training.
The Student Training Clinic has been operating for more than 10 years and has been a successful venture for both students and clients. Counselling sessions are co-conducted by 2 student counsellors, with an experienced counsellor supervising the session at all times. Up to 3 additional students may also observe the session from behind a glass petition in the viewing room.
Students on placement are bound by the same standards of confidentiality and accountability for their practice as our employed staff, and are supervised by senior practitioners during their placement at all times.
We currently have several morning sessions available. Please contact our Hindmarsh office on (08) 8245 8100 for more information and to make a booking.
