Working through Grief
Help for Your Life
Grief is part of living, and there are as many ways to grieve as there are people. Grief is also experienced in many ways throughout our lives from small sadnesses to great losses. Sometimes it can help to talk to someone who can accompany you (even briefly) on your journey.
Talking through Relationships
Sometimes, it seems as if life just has it in for us and we can never catch a break. In reality, there will always be moments we have little to no control over but, what we can always control is how we react to those moments.
Multi Cultural Issues - the Migrant Focus
Australia is the cradle of one of the oldest civilisations in the world, and it s also a country of many new migrants. How do we honour and accept difference and diversity? How do we "fit in" when we are outsiders? Conversations at 4Cs is a space where people may come to reflect upon and talk about particular issues arising from trying to settle and make a home in a new place.
