Bethel is here to help
And we’re doing things a little differently …
Bethel is here to support you, your ministers, and your congregations through these extraordinary testing times. In addition to providing professional counselling, Julie McDonald and Wendy Driscoll are happy to offer brief wellbeing check-ins. To suit individual needs, we will connect by ‘phone or online (Zoom).
Do stay connected.
Call us on 03 9859 8700 to see if we can help.
Welcome to the Bethel Centre
We invite our clients to a safe place full of peace, light, hope, and acceptance. Staff members offer a warm welcome and refreshments. Our qualified counsellors work with clients individually or in groups from congregations across Victoria and Tasmania.
The Bethel Centre is physically separate to and operates independently of the Uniting Church.
We provide a culturally sensitive and respectful environment for all.
Our services are available to individual congregation and council members, whole congregations, or Vic/Tas ministers, whether ordained, lay, or presbytery.
Individual consultations take place face-to-face in our warm and welcoming centre in North Balwyn, over the phone, or via video link. Our counsellors are available to collaborate in identifying educational needs, planning, designing, and facilitating workshops, whether at the Bethel Centre, or where congregations are based.
Our services are free of charge and completely confidential. Donations are most welcome, however.
