Bondi Beach Cottage offers 10 free sessions of trauma informed and/or trauma specialist counselling to adult women subjected to DFV.

This includes women at any stage of recovery those wanting to understand more about DFV and their relationship; women ending and/or planning to end abusive relationships; women struggling to cope with impacts after ending abusive relationships (including navigating post separation abuse); and, women who want to (re) connect to their lives and community after escaping abusive relationships.

Casework supports are offered to women within the context of counselling relationship.

Bondi Beach Cottage also has a limited offering of generalist counselling to women in the Waverley LGA who cannot otherwise afford or access counselling services.

All counselling is free, confidential and women do not need a Medicare card.

Free Occasional Child Care for children 0-5 years may be provided to carers while attending sessions (only available for immunized children with a birth certificate or passport)

Clients may be offered facetoface or telehealth service depending on client need and counselling resources available.

All sessions are by appointment only; we do not offer a dropin service.

We are a member of DVNSW and work closely with them in regard to meeting DFV standards. Our counsellors are accredited/registered practitioners with AASW, PACFA or APS.
