 Avidus & Co psychologists, social workers and family wellbeing counsellors draw on a range of evidence-based modalities and frameworks to provide tailored services designed specifically to address each individual and their unique needs. 

Personal Counselling

"Mental health is a state of mental well-being that enables people to cope with the stresses of life, realise their abilities, learn and work well, and contribute to their community. It is a continuum and underpins our individual and collective abilities to make decisions, build relationships and shape the world we live in." - World Health Organisation


Avidus & Co psychologists and counsellors work along the continuum of mental health and wellbeing - using evidence-informed therapeutic models and techniques to support those who might be languishing; those who might already be thriving; and those who might fall somewhere in-between. 

As positive psychology practitioners well versed in trauma-aware practice and adversity, our services are designed to not just focus on deficits or supporting people to manage distress; but to move toward a life of meaning and happiness - or more formally, psychological wellbeing (PWB) and subjective wellbeing (SWB).  


We work with individuals interested in exploring the following themes and experiences:

  • Personal growth and development

  • Exploration of Self and identity

  • Self-care

  • Enhancing satisfaction

  • Life transitions

  • Stagnation and confusion 

  • Grief and loss

  • Relating with others

  • Teens and adolescents


  • Complex trauma and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)


Therapeutic techniques and models might include:​​

  • Positive Psychology and Character Strengths (VIA)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Trauma-Informed Practice: Creating a safe environment for working with trauma and early adversity

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Meaning-Centered Counselling and Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy: Exploring historical stories for wellbeing and resilience

  • Mindfulness-Based Approaches: Integrating mindfulness practices for self-awareness and communication skills

  • Psycho-education: Providing information on specific challenges, such as mental health conditions or therapeutic techniques
