VICTIMS SERVICES COUNSELLING

APPROVED TO PROVIDE COUNSELLING UNDER THE VICTIMS COMPENSATION TRIBUNAL SINCE 2012

Counselling Application

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.

Initial Assessment

Assessments are conducted at the beginning of your treatment to ensure that your counselling needs are appropriately addressed. It is important that you allow 1 - 1.5 hours for the initial consult. For those who are experiencing acute symptoms from the trauma, having a support person attend with you may be beneficial. An initial report will be provided to the Tribunal outlining your treatment plan.
