One on One Counselling
It can be so important to have a dedicated space in our lives to focus on ourselves, free of expectation or pressure. This unique space is held with compassion, curiosity and confidentiality in order to unpack the stuff that runs behind the scenes. When we open pathways into our repressed or stuck feelings in a gentle way, we can loosen the grip of common symptoms such as anxiety, depression, numbness, dissociation and disconnection.
Whatever the symptoms, there is always an underlying cause. And counselling can provide the framework for clients to come to self realisations and breakthroughs, getting clear on their needs, boundaries and what can help them heal. Not because we need to be 'fixed' but because building a deep intimacy with ourselves allows us to be more present on the journey that is life - with all its ups and downs.
My sessions are client directed and trauma informed. Which means that I recognise that I don't have the answers, and instead I'm simply here to support you in finding those for yourself. I trust in a deep unfolding that can occur when we are given the tools and a safe container to be present to all our parts and the wisdom they hold. I am not here to shame you, pathologise or ask you to repeat your story in gory detail. Instead, I follow the threads of what wants to and is ready to emerge, and we can see where they take us together.
Sessions are available for adults via zoom, phone as well as limited in person sessions in Ballarat, Vic.
60 min session - $120
90 min session - $180
A portion of my time is allocated to offering low cost counselling sessions for people experiencing hardship. Please get in touch about availability.
I offer FREE 15 minute phone consultations to people to see if we are a good fit, to ask questions and get a feel for one another. It's important to me that my clients feel fully in charge of their own therapeutic journey and finding the right person to support that is a wonderful first step.
Private Health Insurance and the NDIS
I am able to bill clients on the NDIS who are self or plan managed. Some private health insurers also cover counselling services. Unfortunately counselling is not currently eligible for medicare rebates, however depending on out of pocket fees for psychologists, the cost may end up being the same.
