If you are experiencing, or have experienced domestic and family violence it can be difficult to talk about it, even with family and friends. You might feel ashamed or unsafe, or think nobody understands. It can be helpful to talk about it with a counsellor who understands the nature of domestic and family violence. Brisbane Domestic Violence Service (BDVS) provides confidential, individual, short-term counselling which can focus on:
- addressing immediate safety and risk concerns
- domestic violence education
- exploring options
- goal setting
- supporting positive emotional health and well-being.
