The Unison PhilosophyIt's about you, and your life
We understand that it can be very difficult to find a therapist who will understand your unique lifestyle or dynamic. Unison Counselling provides a safe and actively inclusive space for people with unconventional relationships, identities, or experiences.
All of our therapists are trained in the latest therapy techniques and are able to provide the unique support you need, no matter where you are in Australia. We are trained in dialectical behavioural therapy, mindfulness, emotion-focused therapy for relationships, art therapy, recovery from addiction and narrative therapy for trauma. We also offer free access to all of our online resources so you can still access useful information even if you don’t feel quite ready to see someone yet.
We understand that relationships can be unique and rarely fit the norm that we see in popular culture – this is why we’re committed to providing relationship therapy facilitated by a therapist who are aware and affirm any and all consenting relationship styles. On a typical day we will support individuals and relationships who identify as polyamorous, open, ethically non-monogamous, chosen family, platonic, and the entire rainbow spectrum of the LGBTQIA+ communities and the sex work and kink communities.
We are a fully telehealth practiceNo matter where you are, we are here for you
Unison is a 100% telehealth practice. This means all our sessions are conducted online or over the phone – with the majority of our sessions taking place via Zoom.
New to Zoom? Don’t worry! We’ll send you an email ahead of your appointment with instructions on how to join the meeting
Whether you are connecting with us from work, on your vacation, or from the comfort of your own home – Unison is ready to meet you where you are.

- Flexibility– No need to leave work early, online support is available after-hours and anytime that fits in your schedule.
- Lower cost– It generally costs less than in-person therapy due to the fewer overhead costs to the therapist.
