Sex therapy

Sexual difficulties can be difficult to talk about and affect the way we feel about others and ourselves. Sex therapy focuses on how to resolve your concerns in a supportive, non-judgemental way by providing a safe and comfortable environment to explore positive resolutions so you have an enjoyable sex life.

EMDR therapy

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is a Medicare approved, evidence based psychotherapy using bilateral stimulation to reprocess images and memories of traumatic events. EMDR therapy can help traumatic memories to be remembered rather than re-lived, reduce the intensity of distressing thoughts and feelings and improve self esteem, resilience and confidence. EMDR therapy has been used to treat a variety of mental health concerns including PTSD, depression, generalised anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety, grief and loss. EMDR therapy may assist in treating sexual difficulties that arise from traumatic or negative experiences and help to install positive beliefs about yourself leading to enjoyment of sexual pleasure and a more satisfying sex life. 

General counselling

Counselling is offered for any issue that is worrying you and does not have to be of a sexual nature. I have provided counselling and emotional support to people for over 25 years in different healthcare settings.  Much of my social work practice has involved trauma counselling, grief and loss support and crisis intervention with empathy and respect for my clients and their lived experiences. 

Do you provide couples therapy?

No, I only work with individuals.

Telehealth sessions

Sessions can be provided either in person, by video or telephone. As a Medicare approved provider of  psychological services I can offer rebated sessions if you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP.  Telehealth can also be provided without the need for a GP referral which is an ideal way to access counselling if locality or accessbility is problematic for you.  

How much does it cost?

$190 for a 50 minute session. Payment can be made via cash, direct deposit or credit card.

Do you offer rebates?

If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP you can claim $81.90 per individual session up to 10 sessions in the calendar year. Members who have extra services cover with private health providers BupaTeachers HealthUnihealth and Nurses and Midwifes Health are elgible for rebates. 

Do I need a referral?

Yes if wanting to claim Medicare rebates but is not essential otherwise. If you do have a referral, however, please bring it to your first appointment as that may assist me to learn more about your situation.
