Bringing counselling and support services to the people of Newcastle and the Hunter.
book a counselling session today

Most of us are a single event away from being stuck, scared, and isolated from people who can support us.

Reflex Social Services is a charity that provides 
trauma counselling and support for people who need it.

We currently provide a range of counselling and support services throughout Newcastle, the Hunter, and the Central Coast.

Our goal is to create a rapid response mobile counselling service for the people who need it, regardless of their finances or funding allocations. We're not there yet, but every interaction you have with us gets us one step closer to that goal.

There are plenty of things you can do to help us reach our goal.
