1. When should I seek professional help?
Are you experiencing relationship problems or workplace difficulties? Is your concentration not what it used to be and is now affecting your ability to focus? Another indicator of our emotional world not being as centred as it should be is our energy levels. Does everything seem to require more effort than it used to? Do you feel down or flat for more days than not? Perhaps you’re more irritable than you used to be and get angry over the smallest thing? Have your eating habits changed? Have you gained or lost a significant amount of weight? Whatever the issue, getting help from a professional psychologist or counsellor will stop problems from developing further down the track.

3. Do I need a referral from a doctor? No
You do not need a referral from a doctor to see a counsellor or psychologist, unless you want a rebate from Medicare. In that case, you will need to be assessed by a GP or Psychiatrist to see if you qualify for a Mental Health Care Plan which will entitle you to ten sessions per calender year and a rebate of between $87.00 to $119.00, depending on a number of factors. If you have private medical insurance, providing you are covered for ancillary benefits, you may be eligible for a part or full refund.
4. What is your fee structure?
- For a one hour individual consultation the fee is $160.00. With a referral from your GP that fee is significantly reduced.
- For a one hour couple consultation the fee is......$180.00.
- For a one hour family consultation the fee is......$200.00.
- For pensioners and people on a Health Care card the fee can be bulked billed.
