NDIS Counselling and Psychological Therapy now available at Sonder

New NDIS Plus service available

Counselling and Psychological Therapy

Sonder launched its NDIS Plus services earlier this year to support young people and adults with a disability to improve their wellbeing, live active and healthy lives, overcome personal barriers and access personalised and culturally relevant services.

Sonder’s approach to NDIS services is unique in that clients are able to seamlessly access support for a broad variety of health and wellbeing needs, through Sonder’s extensive range of health and community services, in addition to their needs that are directly related to their disability, all from one provider.

This integrated approach takes the hassle out of clients getting the support required to achieve their goals as each service works in tandem with one another, ensuring clients are making the very most of their NDIS plans.

Harnessing almost 30 years of experience in delivering high-quality mental health services, Sonder’s NDIS Plus services are focused on supporting individuals living with disability.

Complementing our Psychosocial Recovery Coaching service, we are excited to announce today the launch of Counselling and Psychological Therapy for NDIS participants.

Sonder’s highly-trained Psychologists and Counsellors work with young people and adults to develop different techniques and skills to strengthen their mental health, develop their personal capacity and break down any barriers they are experiencing towards achieving individualised goals.
