The YLO Story so far…

ylo-cis-logoYLO, short for Youth Lifestyle Options, is a brand that originated in March 2008 within the community service sector in South-East Queensland. Initially offering residential care services to children and young people under the care and protection of the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, YLO Residential Care Services has become a well-known and highly regarded service provider.

YLO is a non-government, privately owned company that has endeavoured to support children and young people to overcome their trauma through providing restorative experiences that promote recovery, growth and maximise their chances for success. Celebrating their 7th anniversary next month, YLO has flourished and evolved over the years and now provides a range of services focused on children and young people within the community service sector.

YLO operates under a therapeutic model of care overseen by experienced and highly skilled psychologists with a clear understanding of trauma, attachment disorders and the impact this has on the overall social, emotional and psychological development of a child.

From the years of providing residential care services to children and young people, YLO has discovered that there remains a need for a specialised child and family intervention service to support at-risk families for children both living at home and in out-of-home care. YLO (Counselling & Intervention Services) was born out of this community need and seeks to provide a specialised service targeting children, young people and families living in the Logan, Brisbane, Ipswich and Gold Coast regions.


YLO (Counselling & Intervention Services) offers a range of services for children, young people and families including individual counselling and assessment, family therapy, in-home support and group therapy programs. We offer clinical services to children and adolescents living at home or in out-of-home care alongside their families, foster carers and guardians.  With our Clinic based at Underwood we are conveniently located and our team of highly skilled and passionate psychologists are experts in issues and concerns facing children, adolescents and families and are ready and able to help!
