The therapeutic service aims to provide evidence based interventions for people struggling with any kind of circumstance in their life. People can work through any issue that is important to them in a safe, confidential and respectful place. It is an opportunity to explore where people are in their life and where they want to be. Our therapists view people as the experts on their own life and their role is to guide the participant through a process of greater self-understanding and awareness. This process often reveals new ways in which people can improve their circumstances and live a fulfilling life based on their values and beliefs. Our therapeutic approach is best characterised as a cooperative partnership that aims to empower people by giving them a greater insight into their strengths and giving them the tools that will help them deal with life’s challenges.

 

Our therapeutic service also provides specialist interventions that are tailored to meet a wide variety of communication, cognitive and physical needs. Although the service caters to the needs of people with disabilities, the provision of therapeutic services is open to anyone in the community. Income generated from the services we provide goes back to building more opportunities for people with disabilities in the Ballarat region. Supporting our not-for-profit services helps build a stronger community.
