STARTPOINT COUNSELLING HAS MOVED TO VIDEO CONFERENCING (TELEHEALTH) AND PHONE COUNSELLING.
COUNSELLING AT OUR OFFICE IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Stay informed with information that you can immediately use to navigate the times ahead by following us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/StartPointCounselling/
Tracey Janke will be delivering her own practical posts as well as posts from other feeds that we believe contain quality, accurate, and helpful information. This will be our main source of getting information out.
“Over the past couple of months, we have been attending Tracey’s counselling sessions. Being from NSW we have done this via the use of ‘Zoom’ (a conferencing system). Its has been really convenient, as you can join in from anywhere that suits – your home, office, car whatever. Therefore, saving you important time in today’s busy lifestyle. We have found it no less personal, in fact, I would even go as far as to say it is better as you can also obtain a personal recording in case you want to listen back over any session. On top of this, we have found Tracy to be amazing. She is very caring and pragmatic which suited my husband and I down to the ground. We have really gotten a lot out of her sessions is such a short amount of time. Thanks, Tracey, keep up the good work!“
Society, as we know it has changed
This change is not short-term. Any thought that the coronavirus was going to blow over in a couple of weeks has evaporated. In Australia, lockdowns have started and obviously will continue affecting more and more businesses and individuals.
As lockdowns continue, people will be confined to their homes or at best their local area. This will become the new normal.
Overseas experience has shown
that the lockdown will have an impact
on your relationships and your mental health.
Can your relationship survive continual close contact?
In China, the lockdown resulted in a substantial increase in divorce rates.
Magnification of any weak areas in your relationship will occur during this lockdown.
A significant number of relationships work despite problems, because going to work and social activities outside of the home reduce the contact time between partners.
This reduced contact will no longer be an option.
Will the stress, fear and anxiety split you apart?
Are you prepared for the endless school holiday effect?
As schools close, having children at home will magnify the problem even further and will highlight any issues in parent/child relationships.
Can you afford to let anxiety and stress compromise your immune system?
As individuals, we do not function well when confined. The ongoing anxiety and stress will impact our ability to think clearly and over time will affect our health, lowering our immune system at a time when we need it to be reliable.
NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!
Don’t wait until you are out of time and money. By then, it will be too late.

What Our Clients Have To Say
Tracey was able to give us a safe space to communicate without judgement. She gave us tools which helped us though the toughest times we’ve encountered
“When my partner and I were going through a relationship breakdown, we came to Tracey for help. Even if we were a bit borderline on whether it would work for us, we still gave it a go. Just after a handful of sessions, Tracey was able to give us a safe space to communicate without judgement. She gave us tools which helped us though the toughest times we’ve encountered so far in our relationship and that we continue to use to help guide us through and openly communicate with each other safely and respectfully. We have found each other again and continue to work on our relationship. Thank you Tracey for your guidance.“
They left the sessions with clarity and confidence
“Vanessa spent time with my two children aged 9 & 11. Both of them felt relaxed and at ease talking with Vanessa about some family issues. They left the sessions with clarity and confidence. Thank you Vanessa, I would highly recommend your service to everyone.”
She is easy to talk to, understanding and is very good at helping you see a situation in a different light
“Tracey has helped me immensely with both grief counselling and building life skills. She is easy to talk to, understanding and is very good at helping you see a situation in a different light. She has helped me through numerous issues and I have gained confidence through what she’s taught me. I would highly recommend her. Very knowledgable in many areas.”
I could not recommend her services highly enough
“Vanessa was able to identify with my 7 year old & get to the root of some problems, that we as a family did not know existed. I could not recommend her services highly enough. As parents sometimes we need some extra help or strategies – and we have found that Vanessa has provided us with those. Thank you again!”
I had been to other counsellors in the past, but you have been the one that had given me my life back
I am so grateful to you for helping me to recognise and manage my severe anxiety and depression. I had been to other counsellors in the past, but you have been the one that had given me my life back, – A Better Life !!
I will forever be grateful
Tracey rocks, I’m blessed to have met her
“Tracey has helped me in both work and home life. I came to Tracey for addiction, however, Tracey said let’s get to the cause. Turns out a lot of my issues came from my childhood. In such a short time Tracey has saved my life and marriage. I look at Tracey as a life coach. She brings a lot to the table such as life skills and her eagerness to genuinely help people. She is a straight shooter who does not read from a textbook or sugar coat situations. I would highly recommend Startpoint Counselling to anyone who has problems or just wants to work on self-development. Tracey rocks, I’m blessed to have met her.”
They are more confident and believe in themselves
“Vanessa has been working with both my daughters and I believe she has made a big difference to them both individually. They are more confident, believe in themselves plus she is a support person outside of family to confide in and help with any difficult situations that may arise. Thank you Vanessa.”
Easy to open up to ESPECIALLY on a personal level
“Tracey has been such an amazing help. She has been so helpful in dealing with so many issues and is really easy to open up to ESPECIALLY on a personal level which has been very hard to find. Would highly recommend her to everyone”
