About Prodigal Family Services

Prodigal Family Services offers specialized addiction counselling, general counselling, and Christian counselling either online or in person. Our passion is to help individuals and their families navigate the difficulties of addiction and recovery. We also provide general counselling services for various issues such as emotional and mental health, grief and loss, life transitions, men's issues, work and relationship stress, couples therapy, and family therapy.

Our addiction service has one of two entry points.
1: Help for the substance user
2: Support for the loved one of a substance user.

If the substance user is not ready to seek help for themselves, this doesn’t mean you should be without support. Every situation is different, and with our unique mix of counselling and consulting, we can help you in your journey where you are at right now, equipping and empowering you to bring about the change you desire and work towards a better future.

Our Principal Counsellor and Addiction Specialist, Murray, is dedicated to making a positive impact and strives to provide comprehensive support to individuals seeking assistance. Drawing from his extensive background in addictions, he possesses a profound understanding of the subject matter that surpasses conventional knowledge. This depth of understanding stems from his personal journey, as he too has traversed the path of seeking help and undergoing residential rehabilitation to address his own struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as deteriorating mental health during his youth.

With over nine years of professional experience in the Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) sector, coupled with seven years as a dedicated counsellor, he brings a wealth of expertise to his practice. Moreover, he has had the privilege of residing and working in a residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center for six years, further honing his skills and enriching his perspective on addiction and recovery.

Murray’s ultimate passion lies in assisting individuals and their families in navigating the challenging journey of addiction and recovery, and fostering connection amidst crisis. In addition to specialized addiction counselling, he also offers generalised counselling services that address a wide range of issues. These include mental health concerns, grief and loss, life transitions, men's issues, work-related and relational stress, as well as family therapy.

As a person-centred counsellor, his approach places you, the client, at the heart of the therapeutic relationship. He prioritizes creating a safe and nurturing environment, fostering trust and openness.

Together, you will explore the challenges that trouble you and work collaboratively towards discovering a path to a better future. He believes in integrating various therapeutic approaches as needed and beneficial, tailoring your sessions to suit your unique needs and circumstances.

By engaging in counselling with Murray, you can expect compassionate guidance and a steadfast commitment to supporting your personal growth and well-being. Together, you will embark on a transformative journey, empowering you to overcome obstacles and embrace a more fulfilling life.
