3. We help you find the right counsellor or psychologist for you
Free 15 minute phone consultation – Make an informed decision
On calling us, we make the process simple and easy for you. One of our experienced Intake Counsellors will chat with you for 2 to 15 minutes. This is a free and ‘no obligation’ consultation. The Intake Counsellor will explain what to expect and answer your questions.
They will help you make a well-informed decision about who is most suited to your situation. We are upfront to help you make the best informed decision. We don’t make exaggerated or deceptive claims of our expertise. We don’t hide details about therapist profiles and costs.

Depending on the issues, you will have a choice from 12 psychologists or counsellors. You will generally have a choice of appointment times. We help you find the best ‘match’.
4. We provide a safe place and process for achieving your goals
A safe place
Counselling proceeds with safety and at a pace that is best for you. Appointments are held in a comfortable setting for an hour. The counselling room is a safe place with clear processes and boundaries of confidentiality. Your counsellor or psychologist will be non-judgemental and devoted to your wellbeing.
Collaboration in achieving your goals
Everything that happens will be explained. Your consent and collaboration will be requested for all the steps in your work. Your psychologist or counsellor will be alert to what will be most healing for you. They will work with you to set an agreed direction and goals. They will respect and empower you as their client.
5. Our fees are affordable
We offer affordable counselling. Our ‘standard’ fees range from $40 to $160 per hour session. The fee more or less reflects the experience of the therapist. The fee may be higher for after hours.
For our psychologists, the fee is $160 per hour session. Clients can claim a Medicare rebate using a Mental Health Care Plan. GPs will write one for eligible mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. The Medicare rebate is $84.80 per session for up 10 sessions per calendar year. Payment is made on the day of the appointment.
Our registered counsellors offer concessions if there are financial difficulties. Our intern or psychologists may be able to provide free counselling or bulk billing. A concession and health care card will be required. No one will be turned away solely due to their inability to pay.
