Hello, my name is Anne-Marie, I have been supporting people as they experience challenges for thirty years. My aim in providing counselling is understanding what your goals are, and what support you need to achieve them.

I have worked with victims of serious indictable crimes and including people experiencing acute trauma. As a result, I work within a trauma-informed framework to understand how your life experiences have affected you and we look at strategies, together, that will help you progress to greater feelings of comfort and peace.

A large focus of my work is working with young people and the challenges that they are facing. I like to work with the young person, respect their confidentiality and privacy and with the young person’s permission, also aim to work with family or carers, so that they can understand how to best support their young person for the optimal outcomes.

At all times, I will be guided by you in what you need to address, and I feel the best counselling relationship is one that you can reconnect with, as you need, over your life span.

Special Areas of Interest

Prior to working with adolescents, I worked with victims of crime, young people and adults who had experienced trauma and grief.

Fee Schedule

50-minute sessions, face to face or via telehealth, are $210 (business hours), which reduces to $130.95 after your Medicare rebate if you are under a Mental Health Care Plan referred by your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician. For after hours services the session costs $240, which reduces to $160.95 after your mental health care fund rebate.

These are the standard length for subsequent individual sessions unless otherwise negotiated.

Health funds and payments

You can pay online via card for telehealth bookings in advance or on the day prior to your appointment or for face to face sessions use Eftpos in our practice before or after your appointment.
Our team will process your Medicare and private health rebates immediately after your appointment.

For telehealth appointments the claim may be made for Medicare by our team through our software. For private health we will send you a receipt in the case of telehealth services. Please note that although we may process payments in advance we are not permitted to process the rebates until after the appointment has finished by law.

If you have private cover you do not need a referral and will pay a variable gap depending on your level of cover and your health fund. Please check with your health fund before booking to understand whether you are entitled to a rebate for psychology services. If you are in the rooms we will process the gap but if doing telehealth we will send you a receipt for claiming after full payment has been made.

Referral Information

To access our services as part of Mental Health Care Plan (allowed up to 20 visits per calendar year (initial referral for 6 sessions), please email our reception team with your valid Plan and a referral letter from your GP.

We accept clients with a self-managed or plan-managed NDIS referral but do not take NDIS agency referrals. There will be a gap payment beyond the NDIS fee that is payable on the day of your appointment. Please call us before booking to make sure your plan fits our criteria for referrals within our practice.
