    My practice is in Winston Hills, so I guess it depends where you live.
    Ask around your friends, that is where a lot of my referrals come from, a past client who has found my services useful.  I would suggest you check on their experience, some of the bigger organisations use interns and while everyong has to learn somewhere you would probably prefer it was not with you, I know I would.  Best of luck!

    Mary Jane makes some good points. Just because someone works in a particular place or has a qualification doesn't make them a great therapist. She also mentions interns, we were all interns at one time and therapists need to start somewhere. When i started out I had 1:1 supervision and did some terrific work with my first couple so I'm not so negative on interns. If you go with a reputable organisation like the Salvation army Counselling Services, Relationships Australia, LifeCare etc they have good structrures in place so you can be assured you'll get a counsellor who has passed their standards. Pricing may be a factor, if it is an organisation like above may be the best option. If it isn't then it will come down to location, availability and how well you connect with the counsellor. Different counsellors have different strengths, I'm personally suspect of the ones who are experts in everything. My strength is couples and guys. I connect well with men who don't want to go to counselling. So have a look around and go for it, don't over-think it so you don't act, make some calls and book a time, if you really don't connect with the counsellor find another. All the best.
