Getting Started

‘Today is the first day of the rest of your life’.

It is normal to feel apprehensive about counselling, but many people find the process much easier than they had imagined.

Bookings

Bookings can be made by contacting me directly on 0414 427 951 or email me.

Hours

Tuesday to Friday by appointment. I am normally able to book clients in within a week or two; however, you may have to wait longer for an after-hours appointment.

Fees

Fees are:

  • Individual and couple counselling (up to 1 hour) – $150
  • Pensioner, Healthcare Card holders, and full-time students (up to 1 hour) – $100

Extended sessions can be negotiated. EFTPOS/credit available.

Cancellation policy – Clients are advised that a fee of $75 will be charged for cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice, unless a medical certificate is provided.

Confidentiality – Information is confidential, except where I am legally required to disclose (for example, if someone’s life is at risk).

Medicare rebates

I am a registered Medicare provider. You may be able to claim a rebate for up to ten sessions on a mental health plan if you are referred by a GP.

If you think you may be eligible, please speak to your GP. If your GP makes a Mental Health Plan referral, please ensure the referral is made out to me as a mental health social worker and that you bring the referral to your first counselling session.
