What can I expect in a counselling session?

A session usually lasts 50 minutes and are held weekly. Between sessions, clients are encouraged to think about and process what has been discussed. At times, you may be asked to do something specific outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records. For the therapy to "work," you must be an active participant, both during and between the therapy sessions. As a result of attending sessions you may aquire new skills, insights, motivation and tools to use in daily life which are flexible and appropriate.

What benefits can I expect from working with a counsellor?

A number of benefits are available from participating. Often it is helpful just to know that someone understands. Psychological therapies may provide you with a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or support a resolution. The benefits you obtain from psychological therapy depend on how you are able to practice, be curious and be open to learning more about yourself. 

The aim of psychological therapy is to support you to live your life more resourcefull in keeping with your beliefs and values.

Do you accept Health Insurance?

There is a confusing array of insurance arrangements. The first thing you should do is check with your own health insurance provider to confirm that you have mental health benefits. You will need to find out how many sessions per calendar year your plan covers and any excess payable under your policy. When your health insurance provider authorises sessions under your policy they will give you with an authorisation number for your sessions to be invoiced against.
