Two Minds Counselling Services

Counselling Adelaide


Life isn't easy, and it's not uncommon, especially during this time of upheaval due to the global coronavirus pandemic, to feel low, confused, disconnected, depressed, distressed or anxious. You may also have experienced a life-changing event such as the loss of a loved one, job, or home, or be facing a life-challenging situation, such as chronic illness, disability, or a terminal diagnosis. It's also possible to feel overwhelmed or sad for no reason at all.

However, talking about our mental and emotional health issues are no longer the social taboo they once were, and help is available. Don't try and cope on your own; our compassionate, supportive counselling in Adelaide will bring comfort, clarity and hope.


When you feel you're not coping or even when you think you are, seeking help for depression, anxiety, grief or feelings of despair is a good idea. Whether through counselling, a therapist or other mental health services, sharing and talking about what you're experiencing can benefit you enormously. Here's how:

  • Having someone to talk to who listens: Just having someone who listens without judgement can be immensely relieving and healing. The benefits of sharing troubles or painful feelings with someone you trust include reduced emotional and physical distress, even enhanced immunity. Your confidante need not be a counsellor or a therapist; talking to a caring friend or family member or even a stranger can assist.
  • Help in understanding our thoughts: Sometimes, it feels as though we're controlled by our thoughts, telling us to feel bad, ashamed, angry, scared or worried. These thoughts are often not based on reality or are voices from our past that are no longer relevant or helpful. Your counsellor or therapist can help you identify where and why these thoughts originate and whether they're true or false. You'll learn to differentiate between thoughts, encouraging some but letting others go.
  • Learning techniques for managing feelings: Strong emotions can feel very real and hugely overwhelming. Feelings can plunge us into despair, paralyse us in place or make us behave in ways we'll regret later. Using mental health services will teach you ways to identify and manage strong feelings, not by suppressing them but by working with and through them. Knowing how to deal with all-consuming emotions will benefit you, your relationships and help you cope with daily tasks and commitments in Adelaide or elsewhere.

We believe in 'Living Your Best Life Possible', and our driving objective is to make that a reality for you. Although it may not feel like it, there is no problem, big or small, that we can't face together, and which kindness, compassion and counselling can't help make a little more bearable.
