Depression & Anxiety Counselling and therapy services frequently asked questions

What areas of Melbourne do you provide counselling to

I provide services to Melbourne central but also I provide online counselling through Skype. This provides not only time flexibility but also a medium of communication which has been proven to be effective and responsive to the needs to those who are not able to attend a consulting room.

How long does a counselling session last?

Sessions last 50 minutes each.

How often do I need to attend counselling sessions?

To begin with, weekly sessions are recommended for best results. We can then discuss how effective you feel the sessions have been and depending on this assessment weekly sessions can gradually decrease in regularity.

What happens if I miss a therapy session?

As long as you have cancelled the session with at least 24 hours notice, there will be no cancellation fee. In my experience, attending your therapy session on a regular basis is recommended in order to achieve best results.

How long should it take to see changes?

Psychotherapy is a very personal experience where each client changes at their own pace. That said, you should expect that changes would be underway within 10 sessions. Nevertheless, many of my clients report positive changes much sooner, and sometimes within only a few sessions.

How do I know if psychotherapy or counselling is for me?

After our first session, I will have a much better understanding of your situation and how I might be able to help. You should also have a good feel for how I work and if I am a good fit for what you are looking for. Together we can then decide how to proceed.

Does Medicare cover psychotherapy?

No. For Medicare rebates you will need to be suffering from a mental health condition and speak to your General Practitioner for a referral to a psychiatrist, psychologist or a mental health practitioner covered under the medical profession.

Can I book after hours or on weekends?

It is possible to have sessions after hours from Monday- Friday and on Saturdays.

Do you speak any other languages?

Yes. I speak fluent Spanish and welcome working with Spanish speaking clients.
