Family Support Services Program
Family Support Services
Change Starts Here
The Family Support Service works with parents, children and young people around issues affecting the family and can either visit you in your home or see you at the centre:
· Assist families to find their own solutions to problems.
· Help parents to understand and learn more appropriate ways of responding to their children.
· Enhance parenting skills and knowledge of specific issues where relevant.
· Support and advocate with families/young people with other services such as medical appointments, school legal support etc.
· Provide a friendly and confidential environment to discuss concerns.
Our focus is on providing early intervention to help families build their capacity to operate as a family unit. We utilise a strength based approach and use parenting material based on well researched principles of child development.

Serenity, Confidence, wellness
NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback is 100% non-invasive, safe method for restoring serenity, confidence and wellness back into your life. NeurOptimal® is essentially a brain fitness program which facilitates a more efficient use of neural resources.
After a few NeurOptimal neurofeedback sessions, users report feeling more focused, calm and centred, being able to work faster, more efficiently, being less bothered by doubts and insecurities and an increase in confidence. Nagging, upsetting thoughts simply drop away with no effort on the user’s part.
Free from distraction, the brain can focus on the present.
Neuroptimal is offered at Kyabram Community and Learning Centre at a cost of $35.00 per session (Pensioners $25)
