The Child, Youth & Family Hub

Phoenix House offers free counselling and therapeutic supports to children, young people, and their families or caregivers who have been affected by a range of traumatic life events.

Supports can be provided at the Phoenix House office or delivered at a child or young person’s local school, when possible. We can offer online sessions if necessary, and clients can choose to be supported by our Indigenous Cultural Liaison staff.

The Bumblebees Therapeutic Service

Bumblebees is a small, therapeutic group for pre-school aged children who have had experiences of early trauma. It operates two mornings a week, from 9:00 am — 12:30 pm. The programme is suitable for children aged 3+ who are toilet trained and who have not yet started Prep.

To enquire about enrolment, please submit a referral form.

How to refer:

We are happy to accept self-referrals, or referrals from other agencies where consent has been obtained. If a child or young person needing supports is aged 14 years and under, we do require a parent or guardian to provide consent.
