The Ethics Centre

ethi-callEthi-call: 1800 672 303

Ethi-call is the Ethics Centre's free telephone counselling service. If you're facing an ethical dilemma at home, work or anywhere really, one that seems to have no right or even wrong answer, well, there is someone you can talk to. The Ethics Centre counsellors are professionals with broad experience in a variety of fields who are trained by the Ethics Centre and provide their time on a volunteer basis. They'll help you explore your dilemma, supporting you to reach a solution that’s aligned with your own circumstances, principles and values.

The service
Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm by appointment. Tel: 1800 672 303

Telephone counselling Australia wide or face to face in the Ethics Centre Sydney offices.

The sessions last up to one hour and are as confidential and anonymous as you want them to be. You don't have to give your real name or the name of any organisation involved. The Ethics Centre is non-religious and apolitical, so it offers a truly non-judgemental space for you to explore all aspects of your dilemma from an ethical perspective and work out a way to move forward.

Who takes part?

Anyone facing an ethical dilemma. And that can come from any kind of situation we face in life – from personal dilemmas of choice to the complex relationships inherent in families, social interactions and of course those that can arise in business, government and not-for-profits.

The issues and challenges callers face originate from down-to-earth, everyday experiences. For example, "What ought I do when I'm facing a situation where everything I do seems wrong?", "What if I have to choose between loyalty to my family and loyalty to work?", "What if I've promised confidentiality to a client only to find out something that I think should be exposed?", "What if my care and concern for one person conflicts with that of another?", "What if I’m not even sure that I have a conflict of interest?"

Ethi-call can help you recognise the ethical dimensions involved in a situation and help clarify them.

Ethi-call counsellors

Ethi-call counsellors are professionals with broad experience in a variety of fields. They have been trained specifically for ethics counselling and volunteer their time to the Ethics Centre.

Ethics counsellors training is a rigorous eighty hour program involving a unique dilemma-based counselling method utlilised by the Ethics Centre's Ethi-call service. It incorporates the disciplines of philosophy, psychology, socio-analysis and management.

Prospective counsellors selected for training require a certain life and work experience. Counsellor training also builds on and utilises the experience and expertise gained by the counsellors during their careers.

Call 1800 672 303 to find out more or to make an appointment.
