We’re now open earlier to serve you better. We have learned many lessons around a campfire. No matter where you are, a campfire can open up the door to culture, learning, and listening. Fire is one of the tools to existence. Aboriginal Counselling Services is culturally sensitive. We are both accredited and have formal qualifications in counselling. ACS strives for quality and empathizes the importance of safety, confidentiality and privacy.
ACS has a structured approach and provides an environment that a person can feel relaxed, and confidently know we can relate to an individuals story or yarn. Our methodologies are based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, but will use aspects of other therapies to suit the individual. ACS practices Cultural Safety by understanding the cultural and historic issues that we as Aboriginal people live with. We can relate to the stories that clients bring to us, through our own journeys. We have both lived and experienced strong cultural practices through our families yarns and maintain these stories through the spiritual guidance of our ancestors past and present. At ACS we acknowledge that anger is often the reflection of deeper issues and when we have been involved in a traumatic experience, then the emotional roller coaster takes place. When the dust settles is a model developed based on self-reflection, which incorporates a self-help strategy. When individuals develop insight into the behaviours that are associated with anger it is possible to alter the behaviour and effectively control the damaging consequences.
When the dust settles I know from my own experiences I do feel sad, and sometimes frustrated with what has happened. We have developed a method to use when we feel upset or have that gut instinct that something is about to happen. The program is developed to suit individuals or offered in a one-day training course for a group which is seen on our website under training offered. Like depression, anxiety can be short or long term. We also have a self-help strategy that helps with panic attacks. Panic attacks are related to anxiety and can be a very serious illness if not treated appropriately. We are serious when dealing with this illness and will not hesitate to refer to another professional service if necessary.
We have worked in mental health for eight years and have acquired professional qualifications and experience to support people who have been impacted by anxiety. ACS covers anxiety in an educational component of the Aboriginal Mental Health First Aid. We offer clinical debriefing and workplace support to people in the workplace who are confronted by workplace, family and community issues. We want to support our colleagues in various industries, as we know how vital our roles are in supporting other people particularly community workers. We have worked in construction, administration, education and the public service. Over the past twelve months we have supported workers in government and non-government agencies. Based on my own experiences in my working life, I know the benefits of having quality time to offload and discuss issues that impact our work.
