Counselling report.

Attending counselling shows the court you have taken proactive steps to gain insight into any offence and you are more likely to be given a reduced penalty.

To get free counselling sessions:

  1. See your GP/doctor and ask for a “mental health care plan”. The plan entitles you to 6 free medicare funded counselling sessions.
  2. Book your counselling sessions. Be sure to ask in advance if the Counsellor will provide a letter outlining your treatment and confirming attendance.
