HIV Support Groups


Free & professional short-term counselling to men on any dynamic that relates to their sexual wellbeing. In addition to counselling individual men, we specialise in counselling same-sex male couples in a confidential and relaxed environment.

Men who have recently tested HIV positive or who are about to initiate HIV-related treatment are encouraged to utilise a counselling service.
