Journey to Wellbeing programme
Both programmes are strengths-based and adapted to best reflect each client's culture, gender and preferred learning and communication styles. The flexibility of Safe Network's adult programmes enables us to provide services to:
- gender diverse adults
- neuro-diverse adults
- adults with special needs
- adults from different cultural and language groups.
Our multi-disciplined team includes counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers, who utilise a wide range of techniques and therapeutic approaches to engage and support the clients they work with.
Because these services are tailored to the individual client's needs, the programme can vary in duration and focus for each client. Some clients may only require a shorter intervention that focusses on strengthening life skills to improve wellbeing and support positive and safe behaviours. Other clients may need a more intensive programme that includes more focus on understanding and managing sexual behaviours. Depending on the client's needs, programmes typically range from six to twelve months in duration.
