Free Counselling Funding

We are offering free counselling for young people, 20 to 25 years of age, through the I Am Hope Small Change funding scheme. This counselling is subject to funding availability.


To access this funding, follow these steps:

1 Choose the counsellor you would like to see:

2 Send your counsellor an email requesting I Am Hope counselling. 
State your age



and whether you are   employed  /  enrolled in tertiary study  /  not working
Your counsellor will apply for funding and contact you to arrange sessions if this has been approved. 



Our style of counselling addresses the key issues quickly and provides effective therapy.​  We use a blend of the leading insights from psychology and counselling. With clients who have a Christian faith we use a spiritual and biblical approach that supports their faith; with clients who are not, we don't.


The sessions are 1 hour long.


If you cannot find a local counsellor to access funding on your behalf, you can request Skype counselling with one of our counsellors.


No cancellations or changes are possible online within 48 hours of your appointment. If you do not attend the appointment you have booked due to any reason, we do not receive funding to cover this. You will be charged a cancellation fee for missed sessions or cancellation/reschedules within 48 hours.

The funding provided by I AM HOPE for school-aged children has currently been depleted. They hope to acquire further financial resources in the near future. Unfortunately this means that we are unable to offer free counselling for children until I AM HOPE funds have been replenished.
