LifeCare is an established private counselling practice based in Brisbane. We provide professional counselling support and a range of counselling and psychological services to adults, young people, children and their families. All of the counsellors at LifeCare are highly trained and qualified professionals who hold current affiliation with their relevant professional accreditation authorities.


With a combined total of over 40 years’ experience working in a range of contexts associated with psychological wellbeing, it is not surprising that Susan and Rayleigh are frequently asked by colleagues, students, supervisees and clients to share their insights and knowledge in a more accessible way. So, here it is. This blog will provide regular commentary on various aspects of their work. Sometimes these reflections will be related to particular interventions, sometimes we will share opinions about a professional dilemma and sometimes we will simply share something amusing. We look forward to engaging with fellow bloggers and hope this forum becomes a mutually rewarding opportunity to share thoughts and ideas.
