Character Care

How We Care


While we engage with 21st century understandings to deal with 21st century issues, we value classic ideals and beliefs regarding humanistic approaches. We strive to deliberately build resilience, confidence, and self-esteem in a collaborative manner. Our team consists of psychologists, counsellors, and Character Coaches, all who are passionate about building character in others.

Online & Telephone Sessions

We understand that not everyone is able to make it in person to see a Psychologist or Counsellor. Telehealth conveniently provides you the opportunity for therapeutic support to share your concerns with a qualified clinician, in a time and place that suits you.

Individual Therapy

Character Care offers a variety of unique therapeutic services, such as psychology and counselling.  While no referral is required to see one of our clinicians, we do accept a number of referral pathways.

School Mental Health Program

We facilitate engaging evidence base mental health programs for students and teachers. Character Care strongly advocates for transforming mental health culture into one that is proactive and supportive, rather than reactive and negative.

Character Care has been a valuable placement opportunity for our students in our placement program. The students receive an applied and varied experience that has been integral to their learning for those interested in becoming a Psychologist. Matt’s supervision has helped provide students with great insight into themselves and the roles that play in the organisation. We have enjoyed Matt and team at Character Care’s support for our placement program and we looking forward to continuing our work together in the future.

Our sustained partnership with Character Care and Character Builders has provided valuable opportunities for our students to engage in meaningful work that complements and enriches their studies. Further, the Character Builders and Character Care team approach placements with our students from a strengths-focus and encouraging our students to identify and explore their own strengths, this orientation supports our students personally and professionally.
