At Highlands Counselling Launceston I try to make counselling affordable
for anyone who feels they may benefit from it.

Why a Donation?
Knowing the value of a thing, if it doesn’t have a price tag, can be tricky. Knowing the value of myself or another person is impossible. And yet, I believe, we often unthinkingly evaluate ourselves and others as if we did have a price-tag discreetly hanging from our collars accompanied by words like “good, successful, bad, failure, etc.”.
While such evaluations have a place in certain restricted situations, it’s unhelpful at best when it comes to evaluating who we are.
Making a donation rather than paying a fixed fee requires a different sense of valuing, one that attends to mutual need and invites us into relationship. Such an approach seems more in keeping with a spirit of healing.
