CatholicCare NT is a not-for-profit organisation, providing social services and programs to individuals, couples, families, children, groups, schools and agencies across the Northern Territory.

CatholicCare NT's counselling program aims to enable children, young people and adults in all their diversity to develop and sustain safe, supportive and nurturing family relationships, and reduce the emotional, social and economic costs associated with disruption to family relationships.

What can you expect?

You will work within a cohesive and integrated team, providing high quality, responsive and culturally appropriate counselling services. The role is to support and strengthen family relationships, prevent breakdown, enhance children and young people's wellbeing and mental health, assist couples and families to manage issues arising from relationships, including family violence, and support children after parental separation.

Our Counsellors provide a range of evidenced based therapeutic interventions including family therapy, individual and groups counselling, support and information and referral. These interventions are primarily targeted to support critical family development and transition points including formation, extension, and separation.

Who are we looking for?

Your relevant qualification in Counselling, Psychology or Social Work, along with your your demonstrated experience working with children, young people, adults and families will see you go far in this role. However, your demonstrated cultural competency, particularly in working with Indigenous people will set you apart from the rest.
