Helping you to find your own solutions, in your own way, in your own time, in your own life.
Below are a few questions that people often ask but if you have any other questions please email me at email@example.com
What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?
How long will therapy take?
How much are sessions?
Consultation fees are dependent on individual financial circumstances. You may be eligible for NDIS or claim through you Health Fund. Fee details will be discussed during your intial phone consultation (no charge).
Should I come to therapy?
Do I get a Medicare rebate?
Medicare rebates do not apply however, my fees are normally less than the out of pocket expenses you would expect to pay, if you saw a psychologist.
Do I need a Mental Health Care Plan?
No you do not need a Mental Health Care Plan and you do not need a 'mental health disorder' diagnosis, as stipulated in the criteria for a Mental Health Care Plan.
Do I need a referral?
No, most clients refer themselves. Health professionals can refer you to counselling but it is your decision to make that commitment.
Is there a long waiting list?
I like to be able to offer an appointment within 2 to 3 weeks of you contacting me. Usually I will talk with you on the phone to find out a little more about your concerns and you can also ask me any questions you have. From there, we will work out an appointment time. After our first appointment, it is preferable to organise a block of several appointments so that there is regularity and predictability for you and your family.
What happens if I need to cancel a session?
If you need to cancel, please do so as soon as possible. When you make a decision to come to counselling, you make a commitment to yourself and not just your counsellor. It is important that you prioritise that time to attend to your family, couple and child relationships.
