Holyoake reaches out to thousands of people each year. We welcome everyone with a holistic, non-judgemental approach in a safe and caring environment and value diversity, inclusivity and dignity for all.
In addition to our FREE adult counselling, Holyoake also offers special programs for children and young people who may be affected directly or indirectly by alcohol and/or drugs or related issues.
Our programs include:
Attachment Art and Play Program for caregivers and their child/children with 10 family sessions to those impacted by their own or significant other’s alcohol and/or drug misuse. Supported by a therapist, families use art and play to build the caregiver-child relationship, reduce parental stress and improve communication.
Young People’s Program offering free 1:1 sessions for young people aged 3-17 years impacted by parental or significant other’s alcohol and/or drug misuse. The young person is supported to develop the knowledge and skills to cope with their experiences and foster an increased sense of self-esteem.
Adolescent Program involving free 1:1 counselling with a counsellor to support young people aged 12-17 years to address their own misuse of alcohol and/or drugs, and to gain confidence, stay safe and reduce the harm of substances.
