Professional help & advice


At PartnerSPEAK, our commitment is to connect affected partners, therefore we do not offer counselling. Any advice given on the PartnerSPEAK.org.au forum is from one affected partner to another, based on your shared experiences.  Please contact the organisations listed below if you feel you may benefit from speaking with a counsellor or other professional.

If you are seeking support, and your partner or family member has been charged, we have an online spreadsheet with services that may be able to provide help. No account or software is needed to view this spreadsheet.
