We can help you learn new ways to effectively manage your emotions so you can feel more confident, independent and in control of your life.

Positive Behaviour Supports

Sunshine Counselling & Support Services can assist with providing support to participants, carers and service providers , for complex and challenging behaviours.

Therapeutic Supports

We offer 1-on-1 or group support sessions to help you develop healthier relationships and improve wellbeing as a whole. Whether you’re feeling anxious, depressed, angry, confused or generally overwhelmed, we can help you identify coping strategies and capabilities so you can be more confident.

Behaviour Supports

We understand that everyone likes to communicate differently. We’ll sit down with you, your carers and Behaviour Practitioner to identify unwanted or distressing behaviour, and work together to help you manage these feelings in a positive way.

Behaviour Management Strategies

After reaching your Behaviour Support Plan from your Behaviour Practitioner will work with you to implement a behaviour management strategy so you can positively manage your behaviour and emotions in a controlled manner.

Social & Peer Support

Sometimes the best form of therapy or support comes from your peers, or those that have lived through a similar experience. We regularly host peer support groups so you can feel supported by your peers in a friendly social environment. These groups are often run by staff who have lived experiences themselves.

What is Improved Relationships?

Out of the three primary categories in an NDIS plan, Improved Relationships falls under the Capacity Building category. This sub-category is used to allocate funding specifically to be used to help you develop positive behaviours and interact with others.

Funds for Improved Relationships are most commonly put towards Behavioural Therapy services, which help you build your capacity through structured behaviour development plans, regular social support and other activities.

How do I get funding for Improved Relationships?

If you’re about to apply for an NDIS plan or your existing plan is about to be renewed, it’s important to compile as much information as possible. To access capacity building and improved relationships funding, it’s important that you can accurately describe how you feel on a daily basis, how these feelings may affect your behaviour and what you believe could help improve your daily life. 

If you’re taking medication (i.e. anti-depressants) to help you manage your emotions, it’s a good idea to have your GP write a letter outlining your symptoms and any existing supports. 

If you’re already seeing a therapist or counsellor, it may also be a good idea to ask them for a written letter of recommendations to the NDIS to ensure you can build a convincing case for funding support in your next meeting.
