Connections Counselling Perth has recently undergone a major re-branding, we have a fresh new look, fresh new systems and are excited to share about our changes in many different ways! One of these ways is via a press release! Here is it in case you haven’t heard:

Connections Counselling Perths set up as a local service in 2012 by Mundaring Church of Christ under the direction of the Church’s Minister of Preaching and Teaching, Keith Ford. Connections Counselling Perth has been established to work in partnership with local Churches in providing professional Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Services to people facing both personal and relationship issues.

Within a short time it became evident that the service was tapping into a need in the community and the service was expanded to Maida Vale Baptist Church. As the business continued to expand across Perth an interim board was established, a constitution and other formal documents developed and formal registrations were completed.

Connections Counselling Perth are now operating in Mundaring, Myaree, High Wycombe, Belmont, Greenwood and Dianella with a team of eight counsellors.

Mrs Varty said. “The service seeks to promote the emotional, relational, psychological and spiritual well-being of people through the provision of Christ Centred Counselling and Psychological Services. Therapists are experienced, respectful and compassionate professionals who specialise in a variety of areas. People can discuss spiritual matters and have counsellors pray with them if they wish, but counsellors respect the individual’s personal wishes if they did not want that approach.” Mrs Varty said people were seeking support for many different areas of need including grief and loss, relationship counselling, communication issues and anger, right through to depression, anxiety, childhood neglect and abuse, stress and self-harm.

Lyn Varty is the Manager of Connections Counselling Perth and the Pastor of Maida Vale Baptist Church, Rob Douglas, is the newly appointed chair of Connections Counselling Perth. Other Board members are Keith Ford, the Minister of Preaching and Teaching at Mundaring Church of Christ, Mike Nel, Tony Kwok and Dr. Warren Thyer.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Luke 4:18
