Children, young people and adults who have experienced trauma can receive free counselling provided by Loan Pham or Nicola Edmonds once they are approved by the Victims of Crime Tribunal. Even where there has been no formal police report or with children in care, where the claim for compensation has not been approved by Family and Community Services, treatment under this scheme can still be approved by the tribunal.
When completing the form ensure that you nominate Loan Pham or Nicola Edmonds as your preferred psychologist. Once approved and eligible for counselling, the Tribunal will send you and your nominated psychologist a letter to confirm. You will next need to call to book in your initial appointment.
