Frequently Asked Questions
Is the service confidential ?
Yes, the content of the sessions is wholly confidential, however there are exceptions in extreme circumstances (for further information see the Informed Consent page on this website).
How many sessions will I need?
This varies from person-to-person and can depend on the sort of issue you are bringing. We can talk about this further after the first session, but as a general guide, counselling lasts for as long as you are finding it is beneficial and useful for you to attend.
How long do sessions last?
Sessions last approximately one hour, however a longer session can be requested when booking.
Where are you located?
I’m located in the southern suburbs of Adelaide, at Hallett Cove and my office is located within a residential setting. Once bookings are made and confirmed, my full address will be provided to you.
How much does a counselling session cost?
My fee for a one hour counselling session is $70.00 for individuals and $80.00 for couples.
Payment is due at the completion of the session.
Please note that Medicare rebates are not applicable.
Why don’t you offer Medicare rebates?
Sadly the Federal Government does not recognise the counselling profession as one that fits the criteria for Medicare subsidy. While you could get a referral to visit a psychologist for counselling and claim a Medicare rebate, the net cost is usually around the same as my fee.
If you have private health cover with Medibank Private, you may be eligible for a rebate depending upon your chosen plan.
Do you accept payment by debit/credit card?
Yes, I have EFTPOS facilities for Visa/Mastercard credit or debit cards.
