RAV provides support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and individuals to help strengthen family relationships.

Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk with a trained professional to discuss issues that are concerning you or causing you worry, including couple issues, conflict with friends, relationships breakdown, parenting issues, family violence, anxiety, depression, grief and trauma, sexual problems, childhood sexual abuse, stress, work-related tensions and disputes. Counselling can help you to create your own solutions, to strengthen and repair relationships.
