About Us


Who we are.

BCAP is a privately run counselling service, based in Frankston, on the Mornington Peninsula. Our senior counsellor, Harry Black, is fully qualified, accredited, and highly skilled and experienced in dealing with a broad range of mental health issues. 

A member of "The Australian Counselling Association" ,BCAP take pride in our person-centred approach and our ability to tailor a plan to help and support the individual needs and circumstances of our clients,  regardless of gender, religion, race, cultural heritage, sexual orientation, age, or circumstance. 

Our Philosophy

At BCAP, we believe the mind is an excellent servant, but a horrible master. Our mind can often work against us, causing great distress and creating any number of issues. We believe every individual has the capacity to take back the control and lead a full and balanced life. At BCAP we are here to work with you, and help you do just that.

We do not apply a blanket approach to our clients. We understand that each person is an individual, with their own strengths, challenges, circumstances, skill set, abilities, needs, and goals. We support the individual, and combat the issues. Working with you to develop and maintain strategies, plans, methods, and actions tailored to your individual needs. 

At BCAP, we are NOT here to "nod and get paid". We will help and support you. We will listen to what you want and need. We will work with you, putting you in charge of your life. You become the primary decision maker in your life. 

We will never tell you "what to do" or "how to live your life". Instead, we will offer guidance, provide options, help YOU find solutions. Occasionally, we may even "challenge" you! And hopefully we can have a few laughs along the way too. 

You can rest assured, we will always, and only, ever have your best interests as our priority. 

Our aim

Living with mental health issues can make you feel like you're drowning. And it feels like everywhere you turn,  people just want to describe the water. 

At BCAP, we don't describe the water. We provide "swimming lessons"

Mission statement

To provide all our clients with the best possible chance to live a full, happy and balanced life. 

Our motto

"Each, to the best of their own ability"

We are not all the same. In fact we are all quite unique. Ever individual brings something distinct to the table. We believe the most important thing you can do, is bring and do your best. "Win, lose or draw" if you've given your best, you can face the world with your head held high, and find your balance.
