Counselling with empathy by a qualified and caring therapist can begin the process of developing insight, self-awareness and personal empowerment. Close friends and family can sometimes help us through life’s difficulties but their assistance may not always be enough.
Counselling is a process where you have the opportunity to explore issues of concern under the guidance of a qualified and experienced counsellor.
This counsellor will assist you in identifying unhelpful patterns, contributing factors and goals you may choose to work towards in your life. While most people find counselling beneficial and life-changing, success cannot be guaranteed and largely depends on how we connect in the therapeutic relationship, how open you are, how committed you are to therapy and to change.
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
Focus on helping patients to behave more consistently with their own values and apply mindfulness and acceptance skills to their responses to uncontrollable experiences
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
CBT may help you to change unhelpful or unhealthy ways of thinking, feeling and behaving
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
Identify and change negative thinking patterns and push for positivebehavioral changes
How Much Should Cost Matter?
Sometimes people choose a counsellor based on costs. Of course, the cost matters. Rarely is counselling completed in one or two sessions and for some people therapy can last for quite some time, so cost should be taken into account. However, if this is your sole guide, then you are likely to be less than satisfied with the outcome. The training and ongoing professional development costs for professional counsellors are high and continual upskilling is taken seriously at InSync Counselling & Support therefore there is a need to charge enough to make the practice viable.
Counselling services with InSync Counselling & Support are competitively priced and designed to make these services affordable.
Professional supervision sessions are held either face to face or phone for one hour per session
Fees are due at the end of a counselling session. Payments may be made by pay wave or eftpos with Visa or MasterCard, you will receive a receipt after payment, sent to your email.
When you make your appointment, this time is allocated especially to you. I hope that you understand this if you forget your appointment, arrive too late, or give less than 24 hours’ notice for your inability to attend; you will be charged a cancellation fee of $45 for the missed session.
48-hour advance cancellation is preferred and 24 is required.
PLEASE NOTE: Sessions are not covered by Medicare
Health Insurance Rebates
Counselling fees are not usually reimbursed by private health funds, though counselling related to your employment may be tax deductible (check with your accountant). Top level cover in some funds may give a refund for counselling, check with your insurer.
Low-Income or Health Care Card Holders
Please discuss any matters related to fees when you make your appointment. If you are experiencing financial constraints, are a student or have a pension card. It is my intention to always work with you to make the therapeutic journey possible.
