HOW MUCH DOES A SESSION COST?

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

This depends on many factors including your goals, needs and circumstances. We can offer more clarity surrounding this following assessment, when we have  a good idea of your symptoms, concerns and history. While it is incredibly important to us to reduce your distress and offer you timely relief, we cannot rush or go any faster than your body and mind will allow us to. We will work together to establish a plan that will address your needs as quickly as is realistically achievable.

DO YOU SEE CLIENTS ATTENDING VIA THIRD PARTY FUNDING?

Unfortunately at present we are unable to consult with clients attending via third parties, including ReturnToWork and insurers (this does not include private health). We are not a registered NDIS provider, however clients with NDIS funding who are self-managed are able to pay privately and obtain reimbursement via NDIS.

DO YOU DO REPORTS OR ASSESSMENTS?

Neither reports or psychological testing are currently available.
