Our story

Unison was established in 2019 in Melbourne, Victoria. The practice is founded on principles of equality, compassion, and honouring everyone’s individual right to safe and satisfying relationships, regardless of the dynamic.

We utilize anti-oppressive practice methods to hold space for the realities of power, privilege, and oppression as they affect our clients. We also attend professional development and maintain a learning attitude towards each other and our clients.

We believe that everyone is the expert of their own life story and always seek to create a space for self-reflection and growth.
