Not sure if counselling is for you?
So let’s get together for an initial confidential chat, to see if you feel comfortable would like to work with me.
This can be online or on the phone at a time that suits you.
50-minute session $ 120. Contact me to find out more
Concessional rates are available, talk to me about this.
My fees are not eligible for a Medicare rebate at this time. Medicare will only fund Focused Psychological Strategies which means the following:
- You need to see a GP and obtain a Mental Health Treatment Plan
- Your GP needs to diagnose you as having a mental disorder
- Your treatment must follow the Medicare-approved strategy of treatment
I don’t recommend this method as I prefer to work with individuals using a strategy that will work for them rather than a prescribed treatment plan. I believe flexibility is necessary to match the care to the individual’s needs to adapt as their needs change. For more information contact me.
The AIPC (Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors) our professional organisation is lobbying the government for counselling to be included in Medicare and I will post any developments on my website.
