Amaranth offers a unique service that is more than just counselling.

About Amaranth

Amaranth Foundation was established in 2009 in response to an identified need to provide a range of innovative and supportive mental health and well-being programs, including palliative care, for people living in rural communities.

Over the 10 years we have developed a strong team of accredited Mental Health Social Workers, Mental Health Nurses, Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Disability Support Workers.

We have two main offices in Corowa and Wagga, with staff providing services in Albury and Wangaratta as well as providing outreach to small communities and villages across the Riverina and Murrumbidgee. We have developed partnerships with experienced Mental Health Social Workers in
Melbourne, Geelong, Bendigo and Sydney.

Accredited Mental Health Social Workers (MHSW) are experienced clinicians with over 5 years of experience in the field of Social Work and Mental Health. Collectively, our clinicians all have in excess of 10 years’ experience in a variety of mental health, physical health and trauma services.

Our therapeutic approach addresses not just the mental health concern, but the holistic – social, emotional, existential, psychological and physical needs and concerns of the individual and also that of their family or significant care givers. Social Work is different to psychology and other mental health clinicians. Social work approaches use the Social model of Mental Health and Wellbeing and acknowledge that the environment and relationships impact on a person’s ability to cope and develop resources and resilience to cope with life’s challenges.

Our clinicians are all skilled in screening, assessment, and the development of therapeutic or intervention plans – made in consultation with the individual and, where appropriate, their family members or loved ones. We can also provide case management for more complex situations and crisis support.

Our aim is to assist people to live the best possible lives that they can. We use a resilience, strengths and recovery model of care and intervention.

We don’t have a one size fits all approach.

Employees and managers can receive telephone, face-to-face or online access to our professionally qualified therapists who will support the individual through each issue or concern. Our comprehensive range of services include:

  • stress and coping strategies
  • anxiety and depression
  • personality issues
  • trauma, loss and grief therapy
  • maximising performance
  • hypnosis
  • meditation and relaxation
  • relationship concerns – couples and individuals
  • children and adolescent concerns and problems
  • conflict and communication
  • distress intolerance
  • panic
  • care giver issues
  • exercise physiology
  • addictions
  • work-life balance
  • understanding pain and pain management
  • pre-retirement problems and concerns
  • coping with change and adjustment issues
  • We can also refer you to a range of other services and support, if required. 

CONFIDENTIALITY and DATA COLLECTION
Amaranth has been operating in the local community since 2009. As we are local members of this community we are acutely aware of the need for respect and confidentiality. Most of our clinicians and their families live locally. Being mindful of this, the need for confidentiality and discreetness when responding to the concerns of people and those receiving psychological care and support is
something we take very seriously. Confidentiality and privacy are explained to each individual not only at the first session, but also throughout our care of the person or their family member.
