FAQs

  • What happens in the first session?

    In the initial consultation Paul will look carefully with you at the concerns that led you to seek help. Once he has formed an impression of the nature of your concerns and your treatment needs, he will discuss a plan for treatment with you.

  • How long are sessions and how frequently do I need to go?

    For those clients undertaking ongoing psychotherapy, sessions are 50 minutes in duration and are (generally) held weekly at a regular appointment time.

  • How long do I need to go to therapy?

    The length of psychotherapy varies from person to person and according to the types of problems being addressed. Paul will discuss an approximate time frame with you at the initial consultation.

  • What is Psychotherapy?

    Psychotherapy is a process which aims to help people to develop a deeper understanding of themselves.There are a range of different types of psychotherapy but all of them aim to promote psychological health and wellbeing, or to help people to be more effective in their lives.

  • What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?

    Psychodynamic therapies look at problems from a developmental point of view. They propose that adult patterns of behaving, thinking and feeling are strongly influenced by childhood experience. A central assumption is that aspects of our minds that influence our behaviour are unconscious or out of our awareness. It can be an effective approach for treating chronic or complex problems.

  • What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

    Cognitive Behaviour Therapy looks at how people are thinking and the behaviours they use in dealing with the various challenges in their lives. It can be a very useful approach in addressing specific problems such as dealing with panic attacks or depressive symptoms. Treatment involves teaching strategies to effectively manage or eliminate these symptoms.

  • Do you offer Therapy under Medicare?

    Yes. A rebate is available under Medicare for Psychologist's Services for up to 10 psychological services per year. f you would like to utilise this you will need to visit your GP prior to your first session and ask for a Mental Health Care Plan including a referral letter to your Psychologist of choice. You will need to present the referral letter and your Plan when you arrive for your first appointment.

  • If I see you under a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) how does it work?

    Under a MHCP, sessions are allocated in terms of an initial 6 sessions with the possibility of a further 4 sessions according to treatment needs. After the initial 6 sessions a brief report is required to be sent to the referring GP outlining your progress and indicating if further treatment is needed.

  • What is your current fee and how and when do I pay you?

    My current fee is $120 per session. I ask you to pay my full fee on a session by session basis. I can accept cash, cheques or money orders. Unfortunately, I do not have card facilities. If you are attending under a Mental Health Care Plan, I will still ask you to pay my full fee each session. You can obtain your rebate (The Medicare rebate for Registered Psychologists is currently $84.80) by taking your session receipts to the local Medicare Offfice.
