Whilst the phrase “affordable counselling” is appearing more often across the media, counselling should be accessible and affordable for those who need it the most.

People who seek counselling often suggest that the cost of counselling is often through the roof at fees of up to $200 or more required upfront.

Whilst some practitioners are able to offer a medicare rebate, it still leaves some people out of pocket by more than they anticipated.

Others don’t wish to go to their GP or doctor for a referral and be met with a diagnosis of “anxiety” and “depression” straight away.

They prefer to see a mental health practitioner to discuss their concerns without being immediately diagnosed with a mental health condition.

Counselling is a therapeutic relationship between you and the counsellor. It is about collaboration and working together to support you.

If you relate to any of the above, I highly recommend requesting a 15 minute consult to discuss your situation, your goals for counselling, and how we can work together to support you.

This is also a time where you can raise any concerns about finances and if you require sliding scale fees for a temporary period or consideration for limited pro bono spots.

Your mental health is the most important thing to your overall wellbeing and it is my hope that you are able to find the support that you need.
