Counselling & Contact Service
Unlike most services available,
‘Kick-Off’ is dedicated to Rugby League. There is the familiarity with the unique lifestyle and career
path of the player and an understanding of the stressors that come with playing the game. As such, we provide a
service that caters for & understands the needs of those involved in the Rugby League
Our phone contact &
counselling service operates 24 hours, 7 days a week and is manned by experienced and qualified personnel. Some

our service and there must be the associated and essential clinical knowledge and counselling skills as

There are certainly services that
offer phone contact and most are very reputable, compassionate and sincere in their endevours. We are not
attempting to take priority and you are more than welcome to contact these services should you wish. We endorse
them, though we believe that due to our ‘Rugby League Specific’ service, we can more adequately deal
the resultant problems that can arise.
As stated before, ours is a 24/7
service, where you speak immediately with qualified personnel. There are no call backs required, no messages to
be left and no need for any personal details.
The ‘Kick Off’ phone
contact and counseling service is available for all those involved with Rugby League – be they, players,
player’s spouses or partners, families of players, ex-players, coaching and conditioning staff, club officials
and administrators and referees.
