Book your FREE 20 minutes discovery session (by phone) so we can discuss your situation and how counselling or body psychotherapy can help you. Go to my online diary to book now or call me on 0450 22 00 59.
I provide a sliding scale for clients who are retired or experiencing financial hardship. Please feel free to discuss this with me at any time. We can negotiate a reduced fee for an agreed time period, and we can also look into any issues you would like to work on regarding money and finances.
Mental Health Treatment Plan
I operate as a private practitioner. I am not registered with Medicare therefore, I can not accept the Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) from your GP.
Please note – it is unlikely you can access this holistic therapy under Medicare.
Your mental wellness is too important. You want to get it right the first time. You’ll save in the long-term because you’re incorporating your body and your mind in your treatment for recovery.
I accept cash, major credit and debit cards that have a chip (not eftpos, Amex or Diners).
I am a provider for BUPA and Medibank Private. I will provide you with a receipt with my provider number and item code so that you can claim back from your health fund.
Customers of Medibank Private may be able to receive a rebate for counselling/psychotherapy if they have one of the following policies that include package bonuses:
- PremierPlus, AdvantagePlus, Smartplus, HealthyPlus or their VIP corporate equivalents.
- Family Essential
- Family Comprehensive

Sadly, other private health funds do not currently cover counselling and psychotherapy.
My online diary will send you an automated reminder of your appointment 3 days prior. If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment please either go to the online diary or contact me on 0450 22 00 59.
The cancellation policy exists so that I have time to offer your session to another client. Please try to give me at least 48 hours notice of cancelling/moving your appointment so that I can offer your session to another client.
Cancellations within 24 hours will incur the full session fee (except under the circumstances listed in the emergency cancellation section below).
Missed appointments without notice will incur the full session fee (except under the circumstances listed in the emergency cancellation section below).
If the reason for cancellation is due to illness, family emergency or extreme weather event you will not be charged the cancellation fee. Please note that is left to personal judgement whether it is safe to travel during extreme weather events. In these circumstances, I request that you reschedule your appointment when possible so that we can continue your personal development.
