The Society engages Converge International as the exclusive provider of free and confidential counselling services to its members. Converge International operates throughout Australia and provides employee assistance programs (EAP) to a number of Law Societies across Australia. Its EAP program provides support and counselling for a broad range of personal and work related issues. This EAP is broken down into a number of streams as listed below. Download the EAP Connect app here.


Society members and members of their immediate family are eligible for LawCare assistance. The Society continues to meet the cost of (3) three counselling sessions.

Some concern had been expressed to the Society, in the past, that there may be a reticence by some practitioners to access counselling with someone that a practitioner may have professional dealings. This Converge service now allows practitioners to access either online or telephone counselling services with a professional who is not based in Tasmania. The Society is not provided with the names of practitioners accessing this service.

Counselling services are confidential, anonymous, free and available 24/7

Services can be accessed in (3) three ways.

  • Telephone. 1300 687 327
  • Face to face – available in all areas of the state.
  • Online.
