What to expect
The first session is an opportunity to talk about the challenges that have bought you to therapy, and involves getting to know a little bit about you and your life experience, in order to put your challenges into context. It also gives you the opportunity to see whether I am someone you’d like to work with. By the end of the session, hopefully we’ll have an understanding of your difficulties and be able to identify specific therapy goals that you would like support with.
In the first few sessions I will make suggestions about how to approach your specific challenges, and the time frame that may take. Sometimes difficulties can be resolved within 2-3 sessions, other times more extensive therapy is necessary and can extend to 10 or more sessions. This can be discussed and revised as we go along, taking into account your needs and preferences.
I may ask you at times to reflect on things in between sessions, or practice new skills in order to more effectively make changes outside the therapy session.
How much does a session cost?
Fees are $190 (GST not applicable) for a 60 min appointment payable by bank transfer or cash prior to or at the time of the appointment.
Low income clients and students, may also be eligible for funding from WINZ or Study Link, please enquire with Jessica.
There is no charge if you cancel an appointment 24 hours or more prior to the scheduled time, as this allows me time to offer the appointment to other clients on my waitlist. However, a 50% fee will apply if a session is cancelled on the day, and the full fee will apply for failure to attend a booked session without notice.
Appointment times are currently available on Tuesday and Wednesday 10 - 6pm in Parnell and Thursday 10-6pm via zoom.
