About Bridges Counselling

Bridges Counselling is a dedicated team of psychologists and registered counsellors, with a passion to give hope, and restore the joy in living for clients.

David Bridges and Faye Hansen launched Bridges Counselling in 2008. Since then, we have grown to a team of 14 counselling professionals at our centre in North Parramatta.

We aim to match clients with the most suitable team member. We work as a team and collaborate on complex cases when clients want that extra help.

Our offices are a comfortable place with 5 dedicated counselling rooms, a safe and confidential oasis in which to explore the difficulties you face.

Our mission

Our greatest desire is to empower people to “Cross to a Better Life”. This is our mission statement and inspiration.

Our values

Commitment – We are committed to building safety with clients through connecting, compassion and caring.

Empowerment – We seek to empower people of all ages to know themselves, to take ownership of their lives and to be authentic in relationships.

Balanced Focus – We work with the bigger picture and deeper issues while being pragmatic and down-to-earth.

Healing and Growth – We are in awe at the healing and growth in people’s lives and relationships that we witness every week. We believe that there is a deep and underlying story and purpose to people’s lives.

Our quality assurance

Our Registered Psychologists, Clinical Counsellors and Social Workers are available at your service, depending on your life circumstances. All our staff are registered, and accountable to their respective professional associations. These bodies ensure ongoing clinical supervision, professional development and ethical practice.

Our Christian ethos

All our team members are committed Christians who have a personal relationship with Jesus. Our Christian faith complements and shapes how we view and care for all our clients — with compassion, acceptance and respect.

We believe that God is living and active in this world. He is not only with us in our everyday situations (even in our sufferings and hardships!), he also uses them to grow, shape, and restore us. Through this lens, we offer hope to all our clients, regardless of whether they come from faith or non-faith backgrounds.
