Mangrove House - Sydney based counsellors

Counselling Services, Sydney

Working together

Counselling provides dedicated time to explore what is really important for you to thrive in your own body and life. This will be different for everyone. At Mangrove House, our counsellors will be guided by you as the expert in your own life, and work towards therapeutically reinforcing your strengths with evidence-based approaches to minimise harm, develop your skills, support you with psycho-education and give you space to talk and explore. We work with you to understand and meet your individual needs.

We take a Person-Centred approach, drawing on evidence-based therapies such as, but not limited to, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gestalt Therapy, parts work based on the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Schema Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Somatic Therapy with a strong focus on trauma-informed care.

It is important to note that Mangrove House provides regular, scheduled appointments only, it is not a Crisis Service. If your needs are immediate, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or 000 in the case of an emergency.
