Counselling services

Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury Sydney’s affordable counselling service offers caring support for those times when life is challenging. In a confidential, non-judgemental space, our highly qualified counsellors help individuals, couples and families learn to cope and move forward.


We can help with depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues,
grief and loss, suicide bereavement, sleep problems, adjustment/change,
self-esteem and general mental health concerns...

Do you need to talk?

When life gets hard or you don’t feel like you’re coping as well as usual, speaking with a counsellor you trust can help you feel better by building your skills and resilience.


Our trained counsellors use evidence-based methods to support you in improving your mental wellbeing, so you can face life’s challenges more confidently.


We’re here.


Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury Sydney runs an appointment-only service for individuals and couples 18 years and over from 8 am to 7 pm, Monday to Friday.  

Sessions are held in person at our Gordon offices, with parking and public transport nearby. 

Please speak with us if a condition or circumstance makes in-person sessions difficult – we may be able to arrange a telehealth consultation instead. 

We make sure your sessions work for you. 


Our qualified counsellors draw on a range of evidence-based skills to support you in whatever you’re facing. Maybe you feel stuck, frustrated, or just not like yourself anymore.  

Maybe you’re feeling more depressed or anxious than usual, are struggling with some mental health concerns, or are worried about a loved one’s mental health.  

Whatever’s holding you back, we understand and can support you with high-quality care that’s as individual as you. 

All our counsellors are members of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) or the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW), and can help you access other services and providers if needed.  

With Lifeline, you know you’re in good hands. 


Our low-cost counselling service uses a sliding scale based on income and individual circumstances.

Individual sessions are $35 (concessions available) or $45 for couples/families. Generally, a series of 8 to 10 sessions is most helpful, but this will vary with individual circumstances.

If you’re facing financial hardship, please let us know. We may also be able to refer you to Financial counselling.

We make sure cost doesn’t hold you back. 

Are you ready? 

We know taking the first step can be difficult, so we want to make it easy for you to get the support you need. 


If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, please get in touch and a clinical coordinator will contact you during business hours. All the information you give us is confidential. 


Or, if you have a Mental Health Treatment Plan and have been referred by your GP or psychiatrist, please visit our Psychological services.
