Collectively, therapeutic supports are those that help improve functional skills and independence. 

 Therapeutic supports can fall under several different NDIS budgets within the Capacity Building budget category.

  • Improved Daily Living: This budget provides funding for therapists to work collaboratively with you to improve independence, participate more confidently in the community and achieve your goals. When you hear the term therapeutic supports, they most often fall into this category.
  • Improved Health and Wellbeing: This budget covers consultations from exercise physiologists, personal trainers and dietitians.
  • Improved Relationships: Therapies in this budget are mainly related to behavioural interventions and social skills development.

Counsellors can improve your quality of life by helping you plan, achieve and process the experiences you view or feel. What many people don’t realise is that counsellors aren’t only there to support you through a mental health crisis. 

A counsellor is a trained professional that can support you in developing coping strategies, time management skills, help you build confidence and gain more positive perspectives. 

Counselling is different to other services as it is a therapeutic support which guides participants to develop different techniques and skills to strengthen their mental health and achieve individualized goals. Counselling is a capacity-building and capacity-enhancing therapeutic service that offers more than just emotional support. Rather, the service seeks to support and develop the ‘inner’ you so you’re able to achieve your goals and become more independent. 

Our counsellors can assist you with:

  • Guiding you through life transition goals
  • Refining your social skills so you can learn about different perspectives
  • Supporting your time management and goal setting skills
  • Supporting you in your job seeking journey
  • Assisting your planning, time management and memory issues


The creative processes used in art therapy include drawing, painting, craft, colouring, sculpting, or collage. As clients create art, they may reflect on what they have made and discern how it makes them feel. By exploring their art, people discover ideas and beliefs that subconsciously may be affecting their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. It is provided in a warm, safe caring environment where there is a judgement free zone that is completely person-centred. 


Music therapists are musicians who have trained at university to understand how music can have an effect on behaviours, on how people feel and how people think.  

Music therapy, delivered by a Registered Music Therapist (RMT), has been recognised by the NDIS for inclusion under the support cluster of Capacity Building – Improved Daily Living.

This includes assessment, recommendation, therapy and/or training (including early childhood intervention). The therapy is aimed to increase skills for independence in daily, practical activities such as language and communication, personal care, mobility and movement, interpersonal interactions and community participation.

Music therapy can be delivered to individuals or groups.
