Where are you based?
We're an international and globally accessed company so we predominantly work online. Some of our specialist consultants, however, have home clinics and offices that you'll have the option to request when you book your session.
What approaches do you use?
Strengths based, person centred approach drawing upon the Power Threat Meaning Framework, which is oppositional to the medical model, looking less at labels & more at your context. We practice eclectically which means we draw upon multiple approaches & interventions inclusive of evidence-based Neuroscience & Positive Psychology. This means sessions can be tailored uniquely to you.
What do you specialise in?
Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Career Changes, Lifestyle Changes, Authenticity & Self Acceptance, Relationships, Families, Confidence, Self Worth/Esteem, Self Improvement, Artist Development & Career Development.
What are psychometric outcome measures?
Psychometric outcome measures are a standard and scientific method used to measure experiences, symptoms, capabilities, & behaviours. It's possible to measure just about anything these days, but outcome measures are best used when they're interpreted with a professional, in context, and over time. We use a state-of-the-art psychometric system, which graphs symptoms & experiences throughout your therapy/coaching, so you can get a clear picture of your progress. It also automatically calculates percentile ranks, which helps us to understand your experiences amongst the general population (& has helped our clients to realise how "normal" their experiences are).
How long does therapy take?
How ever long it takes. Everyone is different, some people come for one session, others stay for the long haul. Some therapies are a little more specific than others, for example, CPT is typically a 12 week program, but this is why an initial assessment & goal setting is so important, so we can get an idea of what the scope of sessions is for you, uniquely.
What is the difference between coaching/therapy?
Therapy focuses on mental health and emotional healing, while coaching focuses on setting and achieving specific goals.
How often should I attend?
To get the most out of therapy or coaching, weekly/fortnightly sessions are recommended. CPT & EMDR sessions should be done weekly for best possible outcomes. If you're really looking for a bit of mental maintenance, then monthly might be enough for you.
How long, & how much are sessions?
Each of our team will charge based on their service individually and the length of sessions is often determined by the service itself. For therapy, we recommend 50-minute sessions unless otherwise specified. EMDR is conducted over 90-minutes. Some of our practitioners may offer 15-minute initial consultation on request. A "Sliding Scale" fee is discretionally available & individually assessed.
Do you offer rebates?
In Australia if you have a MHCP, you can claim back $79.05 per session for therapy & if you meet the Extended Medicare Safety Net threshold, 80% of your out-of pocket cost can also be covered. We accept Open Arms referrals, Bupa globally, & other individual private insurance providers may also cover this cost for you, though this tends to be for therapy only.
What happens if I need to change my appointment?
You can cancel or reschedule your session up to 48 hours prior to attending. All bookings can be scheduled, rescheduled and cancelled via your members portal using the "My Bookings" tab or you can email us at email@example.com
Do I need a member profile?
The short answer is yes, you need to register in order to book with us, as this allows us to be able to see all the important info we need, like your name, email address, contact number (not always required but it's definitely helpful). Your member profile allows you to set up your appointment reminder preferences, book, change or cancel sessions easily, & has access to member only areas, including pretty useful resources.
Is it free to be a member?
YES. Absolutely free.
You don't have to be a client to be a member of the site & access all the resources, you just have to sign up - & don't worry, that doesn't mean you have to subscribe to any emails if you want to drop in at your leisure without the prompt in your inbox. You can manage all of that in your preferences.
