Counselling Services In Bayside

Listen and Care Counselling


At Listen and Care Counselling, we are here to listen to your issues and help you to find practical strategies to manage your problems. You may have spoken to a counsellor before, or this is your first appointment with a therapist.

Chris will explain the counselling process to you. You will be asked to complete a client intake and a consent form, just like you would with a doctor, or allied health professional.

Listen and Care Counselling is located in South East Melbourne and has two locations in Beaumaris, or Moorabbin. Our counselling spaces provide a warm and relaxed setting to help you talk openly about the issues concerning you. Chris Wood (Principal Counsellor) will call you back to make your initial appointment and help you decide which is the best counselling service for your needs.

You can choose one of the following counselling modes to fit around your busy lifestyle.


Video Counselling is just like a video chat on Messenger. The counsellor and client can still see each other, with the convenience of having your session from home, or another private space. This is helpful for busy people, those with young families, or people with mobility issues.


Clients find it liberating to open up to another person over the phone about their issues. It is a flexible and convenient option for busy people. Chris has many years of experience with phone counselling.


This is the traditional form of counselling. A private, warm and comfortable counselling space enables you to openly discuss your issues of concern. The counsellor is able to get to know you better and gain a deeper understanding of your issues, by observing your non-verbal cues (expressions, gestures and posture).
