OUR PARTNERS

FAQ

Want to know more?

What does the first session look like?

We understand that therapy can be a daunting or scary process! Generally, our initial appointment with you, your child and family involves two practitioners. We will explain the process and get you settled in before we start to explore what you would like to see different. We’ll talk together about next steps so that you leave with an idea of what comes next.

Will my child be comfortable?

Children LOVE our play spaces. We have toys, art material and sensory resources to suit all age groups. There will always be one therapist who can be with the child to make them feel comfortable, understand their play and get to know them. Kids often don’t want to leave since they’re having so much fun!

What sort of therapy do you provide?

We provide psychotherapy informed by a number of principles including Expressive Therapy (i.e.  expressive arts for therapeutic use), neurobiology, trauma and attachment, systemic thinking and childhood and family development.

We provide a holistic service that caters to you and your family, which can include any of the following: Play Therapy, Expressive Therapy, Art Psychotherapy, Systemic Family Therapy, Counselling and Psychotherapy.

What is the difference between Psychology and Psychotherapy?

Psychologists are Masters level trained clinicians who focus on assessment, diagnosis and intervention using predominantly CBT, ACT, DBT or mindfulness. Currently we do not have any psychologists on our team.

 

Our Psychotherapists are Masters qualified clinicians who focus on the therapeutic relationship and rapport building, as well as developing nuanced and integrative interventions from a number of evidence-informed therapy modalities that suit the individual or family presenting. They focus on client-centred practice and feedback that consistently checks in about how we’re doing in the process of helping you.

Do you take Medicare Rebates?

The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency currently does not accept Psychotherapists to register. Instead, Psychotherapists and Counsellors are registered with their our specialist registry bodies such as PACFA, AAFT and ANZACATA. This means that specialist Psychotherapists cannot obtain Medicare Provider Numbers. 

 

However, as we highly value accessibility and want to make our services available to the community, we have Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) Reduced Cost Pathway, whereby we honour your MHCP and reduce the rate of services to the suggested gap fee outlined by the Australian Psychological Society.
