Our counsellors have full professional accreditation with the peak associations for mental health service delivery in Australia.
Our practitioners come from leading community mental health services including Australia's leading youth mental health service (Headspace), the Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia (PANDA), and Taskforce Community Agency.
Our practitioners are also consultants to leading mental health service providers including Benestar, Australia's leading provider of employee assistance programs (EAP).
We can offer Medicare rebates to people with GP Mental Health Care Plans. To get a Medicare-rebated plan, see your doctor and ask for an extended consultation. The doctor will run a few mental health screens on you and then issue the plan if you qualify. You can get up to 10 rebated counselling sessions per year under Medicare.
Relationship counselling and personal therapy
We use an empathic, solution-focused approach to help you bring change to your life and relationships. Our practice uses clinically proven and effective therapeutic techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT) and interoceptive exposure therapy techniques for phobias and anxieties.
We work with people at all stages of life, facing complex problems and from diverse cultural backgrounds. Each client benefits from the depth and breadth of our expertise. We service the northern suburbs of Melbourne from rooms in Niddrie (near Essendon) or we can make home visits if you are unable to travel. You can also get your counselling via Skype or FaceTime (however Medicare does not pay rebates for online counselling).
