Can I access your services if I'm under 18?#faq-content-1477894574378

You can use our counselling services, and you may be able to attend one of our violence prevention/anger management programs, but only if the group leaders think you will be compatible with the older group members. All other EveryMan services require you to be 18 years or older.

Can women access your services?#faq-content-1477953622491

Some EveryMan programs are funded to work only with men, while others have a little more flexibility, particularly when the government agency who funds the program is making the referral. We have some specialist services which are not readily available elsewhere, and we don't like to see people who need that extra support miss out because of their gender or identity.

For example, counselling services may be available to people who are inquiring for themselves or for a partner or family member:

a) through our Complexity Centre service for complex personal or family issues.  

b) where the need for support is directly related to a male adult or child. For example someone who is:

  • is a carer for a man with a disability
  • is a man's current or ex-partner
  • is a parent of a male child, with parenting issues relevant to the childâ??s gender
  • has concerns and responsibilities in relation to a male relative's needs or circumstances.

Please direct enquiries through our Contact Us page at, or call 02 6230 6999 and ask for Alistair Jones or Tristan Jones.
