FESSN Free Call (professional Counsellor): 1800 805 980

FESSN provides a free 24 hour confidential telephone counselling service for all members and their immediate family members.

It is a ' pager service', therefore, upon calling the free 1800 telephone number you will be asked to leave your contact details so the On-Call Counsellor can return your call as soon as possible. This line is serviced by a Roster of FESSN Counsellors, so you may not get the same Counsellor each time you call. This is NOT a crisis service and may take up to 2 hours for your call to be returned.
