Australian Counselling Solutions was founded by Carol Hucker in 2020. It has been a dream of Carol’s for some time to create a counselling business that would assist her community, especially those who may require someone to talk to about their issues in a safe place.
Carol’s vision is to assist community members, which she has a strong compassion for, find their way to a life they want and not settle for second best. With kindness and care of the person this is achievable.
Carol has worked as a counsellor and case worker for over 20 years. She commenced working as a drug and alcohol counsellor in Sydney prior to moving to the Central Coast in 2000 to continue working as a counsellor.
Carol continued to build on her experience by working with unskilled people seeking employment. She then worked with refugees in offshore detention centres, conducting mindfulness groups, case management and one on one support sessions. She then returned to counselling on the Central Coast, to drug and alcohol. She continues to build on her skills by being involved in regular supervision, professional development and formal study.
Carol’s qualifications include:
– Bachelor of Counselling
– Certificate IV in Community Services (Alcohol and other drug work)
– Associate Diploma in Ministry
– Registered with Australian Counselling Association – Level 2
