FAQ

I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting, child and adolescent issues, postpartum support, trauma, abuse, and couples counselling.
All sessions are 60 minutes. My fees are $100 for individuals and $140 for couples. Unfortunately in Australia at this stage, only Psychologists can offer medicare rebates through the mental health care plan, however, my fees are based on the out-of-pocket cost you would typically pay to see a psychologist. I do not offer any no-fee or bulk billing as I work in Private Practice. I understand not everyone is able to afford full fees, you may submit an application for Financial Assistance consideration through this form https://thegentlecounsellor.com/financial-assistance
