GET TO KNOW US

Pregnancy Counselling Link (PCL) is a community agency, staffed by tertiary qualified, professional counsellors, which supports women on issues affecting them, in the areas of pregnancy, parenting, relationships, navigating life changes, fertility issues and loss and grief. Support is also available for partners and other family members.

Our counsellors provide non-directive counselling, helpful information and emotional support to those who are experiencing difficult or unforeseen circumstances.

Government and community support/connection

PCESI receives funding through the Queensland Government’s Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women under the Targeted Family Support Program and is also supported by donations from community members.

Pregnancy Counselling & Education Services Inc. (PCESI) began their journey in 1973 when a group of concerned people in the community identified the lack of support available for women with an unplanned or difficult pregnancy. This group established the organisation, known today as PCESI, which sponsors Pregnancy Counselling Link (PCL). The services PCL offers have evolved and grown to meet the needs of women in our ever changing society.

We rely on financial support from the community. Your donation will help us ensure PCESI has the financial resources to continue to support those involved in the delivery of the services of PCL – “Women Talk, We Listen…”, clearly expressed in our Vision Statement.

Pregnancy Counselling Link operates a service delivery system that complies with the requirements of the Human Services Quality Standards, Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women (DCSYW).

“To enhance the lives of women and their families, by providing counselling and education to everyone affected by Pregnancy and Reproductive Related Matters.”
