Counselling

Did you know?

You are eligible for a Medicare rebate if you have counselling with an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker in private practice when you are referred by your GP, paediatrician or psychiatrist with a Mental Health referral letter.

As an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker I can help you when you experience difficulties that have an impact on your ability to manage the demands of day-to-day life. For example, when you:

  • persistently experience low mood or anxiety;
  • have a relationship breakdown;
  • experience family, friend or workplace conflict;
  • feel socially isolated
  • are diagnosed with or suspect you have a mental health disorder

I have the training, skills and expertise to assess your situation and to offer effective treatment to you or someone you know. Some of the treatments provided under Medicare include:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Acceptance Commitment Therapy ACT
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Relaxation training
  • Parenting training
  • Interpersonal skills training

Other therapies that can be provided are:

  • Relationship counselling
  • Family therapy
  • Bereavement counselling
  • Psychotherapy
