Welcome to Diabetes Counselling Online
Diabetes Counselling Online is a free online counselling, education and support service for all Australian people living with all types of diabetes, their families and friends. Our aim is to connecting people with diabetes and their families to a better quality of life.
We are a not for profit, gift deductible charity. We were the first and still the only organisation in Australia offering free online counselling to all people with diabetes.
With growing recognition about the high rates of depression, anxiety, lowered quality of life and moderate to high levels of distress for many people living with diabetes, our focus is on the connections between diabetes, mental health and wellbeing. We offer counselling and diabetes education together, as well as support and connections with other people living with diabetes in the growing diabetes online community.
As well as having professional qualifications and experience, all of us have personal experience of life with diabetes – we get it! We aim to support people around the “real life” concerns, worries and issues of life with diabetes.
E-Counselling, Diabetes Education, information and online support
We offer e-mail counselling and diabetes education consults online; group chats and discussion forums here and on Facebook where you can connect with each other; a blog to share thoughts and feelings about life with diabetes and provide up to date links and news; and a range of groups and information.
Join us in discussions and follow us on Twitter. Find information in our e-library, read about who can be helpful in your diabetes team, share your story and read other stories about life with diabetes.
The service is based in Australia and is intended for Australian residents. The service is FREE for Australian residents.
