Online Sessions

Some of my sessions can be conducted online via Zoom or phone for those that cannot get to the office here in Langwarrin.

This has proven successful with some of my clients who are highly anxious and cannot leave the house and for others who have transportation issues.

Also of great benefit is the fact that Zoom sessions can be recorded for future reference, eliminating the need for you to take notes during the session.

Other advantages of Zoom sessions are that they are great for our visual learners as I can physically show you how to practise different strategies and we can do that together in real time.  We can also have more than one family member join in on the session giving everyone the same information at the same time.  A great tool for family sessions.

Individual and/or small group (up to 4 participants) sessions available.

Suitable for:

  1. All ages (10yrs old and above)
    In times of illness.
  2. Teens
    A great way for our teens to reach out and connect in a way they feel comfortable and in a small group setting or 1:1.
  3. Adults (partners/parents or 1:1)
    Those with high anxiety and cannot leave the house, have transport issues or parents who do not have childcare options.

Initial sessions are followed up with a comprehensive email outlining session notes and relevant links.
Some phone and email support is also available in between following sessions.

Fees for online group sessions and webinars vary according to length and number of participants.

Once you are ready to access supports and you have your Plan in place, contact me for a free confidential chat where we can discuss your needs, all costings and make an appointment to finalise your Service Agreement.  (This Service Agreement is a mutual agreement made between client and provider safeguarding both parties.  It includes items such as: the supports to be covered, at what location, at what price, length of the agreement, responsibilities of both parties and notice required for cancellations etc.  Standard notice to cancel services is 2 weeks notice to be agreed upon by both parties.)
