A Psychotherapist has specialist training in longer-term and sometimes quite intensive work with people who know they need something more than medication or cognitive strategies to resolve (usually) issues that date back to childhood and/or trauma. A Psychiatrist has a Medical Degree and can prescribe medications; a Psychologist has an Academic Degree from a University. Either of them MAY (or may not) also be a Psychotherapist The crucial difference is that Psychotherapists will have themselves entered into their own Psychotherapeutic journey.
Depending on the service, most sessions will last between 45 minutes to an hour.
Treatment time varies with each individual. Energy healing therapies may be noticable at the time of treatment, while hypnotherapy and counselling could take weeks or (for psychotherapy) years. The crucial aspects for effectiveness however are regularity and reliability.
The types of therapy I offer can help facilitate the healing of a vast array of issues from headaches and period pain to more serious issues such as emotional trauma, clinical depression, anxiety, and addiction. If you would like to see if I can help you with a particular problem, you are welcome to schedule a free consultation with me via the contact form.
I am dedicated to providing accessible and affordable wellbeing care during this difficult period of time, therefore, Counselling & Psychotherapy is heavily reduced to the low rate of $35 per session until September 2022. Sessions will return to $110 thereafter.
As fees are already heavily reduced I am not currently accepting concession. However, if you are experiencing difficulty or financial hardship please let me know so together we can negotiate a suitable payment plan.
That is possible with some Psychotherapists, but it requires an official diagnosis of a mental health condition from another medical professional. Therefore, some Psychotherapists (including myself) choose to maintain the total privacy of our clients and do not enter into such third party arrangements.
As health insurance requires a similar arrangement to Medicare, this is not available at my practice. However, I firmly believe that Psychological wellbeing is a universal human right and I endeavour to allow my services to be available to all who may require them.
Yes. All practitioners who are members of a professional association are required to be fully insured.
