Melaleuca Refugee Centre: Counselling and Advocacy Services for Survivors of Torture and TraumaMelaleuca Refugee Centre provides services to people from refugee backgrounds who have experienced torture and trauma prior to arrival in Australia. The centre aims to assist with recovery from trauma through individual support, recognising the importance of rebuilding meaningful lives and developing new networks and strengthening communities. Melaleuca provides social and emotional support to new arrivals as well as counselling, advocacy and other therapeutic services to people who might have arrived in Australia many years ago. Melaleuca assists around 250 people a year. Counsellor/advocates provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment where people can talk about their experiences, both pre and post migration, and can explore their strong feelings, thoughts and memories. Reactions to trauma may include disturbed sleep, nightmares, panic attacks, feeling anxious, feelings of guilt and shame, feelings of hopelessness and too much worry. People may be suffering from headaches, the pain of loss of loved ones and homeland and feelings of dissatisfaction or emotional exhaustion. We often feel humbled by the courage, dignity, resilience and strengths people have brought with them.
