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 Thursday 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. Most sessions are via Zoom due to current Covid-19 situation, but in some situations, in-office sessions can be arranged. Please contact me to disucss.

Fees

  • Individual and couple counselling (up to 1 hour in office or via Zoom) – $160
  • Extended sessions or concessional rates by negotiation

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 care plan if you are referred by a GP. If you think you may be eligible, please speak to your GP, ensure the referral is made out to me as a mental health social worker.

Under Covid-19 telehealth provisions, people at risk of Covid-19 or Commonwealth concession card holders must be bulk billed under mental health care plans. If you do not meet those criteria, the session will be processed direct to Medicare and a gap payment of $84.05 will be payable.
