Sessions are held on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) or via Skype (or similar program) and last for 60 minutes. A reduced fee for in person sessions is available for full-time students and recipients of a Centrelink benefit with or without a mental health care plan.
- We’ll discuss what’s been coming up for you, what you’d like to work on, and what you’ve already tried. We’ll come up with an overall idea of what needs to happen and how we might go about creating that.
- We won’t just talk about what’s happening, we’ll dig deep and start exploring. This often brings up more questions, which is why we might use art therapy approaches to deepen the exploration and connect with your body wisdom.
- We’ll integrate what we’ve learned, and come up with an active plan to make your transformation tangible in the real world. We’ll turn your insights into actions so that you can embody the changes in your daily life.
Because our stories can’t always be fully expressed in words, I use a number of mediums in addition to more traditional approaches such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, including guided drawing, art therapy, sensorimotor psychotherapy, and therapeutic journalling. You do not need to have any creative experience whatsoever.

Please note: Psychological services under Medicare are specified as‘professional attendance’ and at the moment require face-to-face sessions in order to be eligible for a rebate. Skype sessions are presently not allowable, however the impact of this on clients in rural and remote locations has been brought to the attention of the Department of Health and Ageing. The Australian Psychological Society continues to advocate for changes in this area.
