FAQS

What are your hours?

My hours are flexible and I am available at any time that suits you.  That said, my usual hours are:

Weekdays: from 7am

Monday, Tuesday and Friday evenings: from 5.15pm

Saturdays: 9am – 2pm

 Please note: If you can’t make it in to my offices in the CBD, I am happy to conduct sessions via phone or Skype.

 To arrange an appointment, please send me an email or call 0458 402 940.

How long are appointments?

Appointments are 60 minutes long. 

What is your fee?

The standard fee for registered counsellors/mental health practitioners is $140.  In some circumstances, I also offer a limited number of concessions.  If you are eligible for a concession, I will suggest a nominal fee based on your level of income.  We can chat about your options at your introductory session. 

What about confidentiality?

I abide by strict confidentiality guidelines.  Your information will be stored under lock and key.  It will not be released without your authority.   

Can I claim a Medicare rebate?

Medicare currently does not offer rebates for counsellors/mental health practitioners.  This is reflected in our lower fees.  However, some insurers, like Medibank Private, GU Health and Commonwealth Health Fund, may offer rebates so it’s worth giving them a call to double-check.

What is your cancellation policy?

I aim to be as flexible as possible.  I’m more than happy to reschedule appointments although a cancellation fee may apply if I am given less than 48 hours notice.

Can I schedule an appointment online?

Yes.  To request an appointment, simply email or call me on 0458 402 940.
