Life can get tough sometimes. People often contact me when they are experiencing some big challenges. If you’re like them, you might experience some of these things:
you’re dealing with an unexpected challenge or event and you’re feeling lost, stressed or out of control.
you’re feeling depressed, sad or apathetic. You might feel like you have lost your mojo and have no idea where to find it again. You might feel numb - like you have no feeling at all.
you’re anxious and can’t figure out what that’s about. It keeps you up at night or makes you nervous doing normal, everyday things.
you’re experiencing stress in your work & life
Reaching out for help takes courage. I can help. I’ve had the privilege of working with people having these experiences over the last 15 years.
Accessibility is important to me. If there is anything I can do to help make my service more accessible to you, please contact me.
My services are provided by video link or telephone. I pride myself on reducing as many barriers as possible for people to seek help (whilst still providing excellent service), particularly those who live in rural and remote communities.
How I do therapy:
I’m an eclectic practitioner. That means I use strategies from multiple approaches depending on what might work best for you. Sometimes it takes some time to figure out what might be most helpful – but usually you will have a sense of whether you want to continue with me after our first session. If you know a bit about different approaches, the few that I use most, are: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; Solutions Focused Therapy; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Positive Psychology.
If you live in certain (rural and remote) parts of Australia, you may be eligible to receive a medicare rebate for a video session provided you have a mental health care plan from your GP. If you feel uncertain about whether your area qualifies you for this, please contact me here. You are able to receive $84 per session back. Medicare provides a rebate for up to 10 sessions per year.
You do not have to have a mental health care plan to access these sessions, but you are unable to receive a rebate without one – it’s entirely up to you. If you live in areas that are not rural and remote you will not be able to access a medicare rebate for video sessions.
Sessions last for 50-60 minutes generally. My fee per session is $150.
