~ Be still...the quieter you become the more you can hear ~
Psychotherapy is a dynamic process that focuses on the mental, emotional, relational and spiritual health of a person and aims to help clients better understand the conscious and unconscious aspects of their present experience. Psychotherapy can be undertaken both short term (approx 20-26 sessions) or long term which is not limited to a particular number of sessions.
Emphasis is placed on the theraputic relationship between the therapist and the client where we build a secure & collaborative base to navigate your feelings, build resilience & create more healthy ways of relating to yourself & the world around you.
Those that have undertaken psychotherapy feel the process has led them to the experience of greater insight and clarity, helped them develop a stronger identity and has aided in greater symptom reduction

// QUESTIONS //
How do I know if Psychotherapy is right for me?
If you are looking for a therapy that can explore deeper or more complex issues that you don't really understand then psychotherapy is probably a good avenue. We will spend the first few sessions completing an in-depth assessment and discussing your individual needs, personal therapeutic goals and the time frame/commitment you wish to enter into.
What issues does Psychotherapy address?
Psychotherapy is useful for a wide range of concerns including: mental health; anxiety, depression, stress, personality disorders, eating disorders, illness, relationship, intimacy or commitment problems, family of origin issues, abuse, violence and trauma
I need a Mental Health Plan to see you?
No. Psychotherapy is yet to be rebatable through Medicare therefore you are a privatly paying client and do not need a mental health plan.
