/  Counselling

MPA has a professional counsellor who is able to offer confidential emotional and practical support as well as therapeutic counselling. This support service is available free of charge.

The initial shock of a melanoma diagnosis or recurrence can be overwhelming. You may wish to speak freely with a person who understands your situation and is experienced in providing compassionate emotional support. You may feel confused, frightened or anxious. It is often far easier to express your rawest emotions honestly to someone who cares but who is not a close family member or friend. Talking about life and death, grief and loss concerns can be confronting, so having someone you can be open with may bring some peace.

As well as emotional support and counselling, specific melanoma information and referral to local services including MPA Support Groups will be offered as required. Informal linkage to others experiencing similar situations can also be arranged. The service is provided via telephone or email.

Contact and support can continue for as long as support is required. You will feel safe, supported and reassured as you face an extremely difficult life crisis.

To access this service you can call 1300 88 44 50 or click here for information or support.
