Value for Money is subjective & extremely personal
A necessary expense to one person, may be considered a luxury to another.
Basically, it all comes down to what you value…
And of course, getting real benefit from the money you spend, well, that will always make it more valuable ~ Anything worthwhile is never cheap, it always has value
How much value do you put on getting the right professional help?
Of course, there are many other therapists out there, and finding the right one can be challenging. The cost is certainly one aspect, however, don’t be fooled into thinking that all hypnotists and/or psychotherapists are the same.
They simply are not.
Because this industry is unregulated, there are some who have minimal training, and even some who did their training such a long time ago and do not undertake any further current training – unfortunately, there are even some who apparently have no recognized training at all!
Your Investment with me includes my many years of professional training, including a university degree in psychology, diplomas, advanced diplomas & certificates in clinical hypnotherapy, hypnosis, and psychotherapy, together with my continuous professional development and many years of experience helping clients, just like you, get the help that they really want and need.
As your therapist, you will find me unfailingly kind toward you, genuinely believing in you, no matter what’s happened in the past or is going on now.
There is no judgment here. I accept and care for you exactly as you are now, especially when you are unable to do that for yourself. You will find that is a rare quality indeed.
How do you put a price on that?
Some say it’s priceless…
Professional Fee Schedule:
$180 Per Intensive Individual Consultation (1-1.5 hours)
$350 for a Two (2) Session Package (saving you $10)
$500 for a Three (3) Session Package (saving you $40)
One of my main points of difference is the length of my sessions, which are far longer than most other therapists. This means that we get more work done in each session and you’ll generally need fewer sessions to reach your desired goals. This is part of the excellent value for service I offer you.
My practice is based on a private *fee-for-service ~ In other words, you pay me from your own pocket.
*I am not registered with Medicare or any other health insurance companies and I am not a registered psychologist. This means you will not be able to claim any rebates from using my services. The benefits to you are listed below:
- If I charged by the hour, my hourly fee equates to far less than the average out-of-pocket cost you would pay to see a practitioner who does offer a rebate; and, after a few sessions with me, the expense remains the same. Plus, there are many other benefits to seeing a fee-for-service practitioner that you may not even be aware of:
- you do not receive a mental health ‘diagnosis’ ~
- your mental health status remains fully confidential ~
- certain conditions are not even covered by Medicare or health insurance ~
- you usually have a long waiting time to get an appointment with a provider who offers rebates – that is of course assuming that you can find one.
Also, your session fee extends well beyond the consultation time. The very best therapists spend time preparing for sessions and thinking about your issues, even when you are not there.
I always do further research about topics raised in our sessions to get a deeper insight into your situation while I’m reading, meditating, exercising or out on my morning walk.
I may also provide you with a journal, books, or other printed material and items, that I feel will be of benefit to you, that were purchased by me, and offered to you with my compliments during your therapeutic journey.
This level of attentiveness & care makes the difference between really good therapy and your run-of-the-mill treatments.
So why not choose a therapist who takes time to think deeply about you and your issues? And who provides you with the best and most current professional services available. It will be well worth it in the long-run…
- For clients on a low income or pension, a small reduction in fees may be negotiable, if requested. *A limited number of clients on concessionary fees can be held at any one time.
I will ask for your credit card details to secure your scheduled appointments & you will always be provided with an official tax receipt for my services.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, there will be no charge if at least 24 hours notice is given. If less than 24 hours’ notice is received, your full consultation fee will be payable, as I will be unable to allocate your session time to another client.
If you are less than 15 minutes late, the remainder of the session will be able to proceed. However, if you are more than 15 minutes late, the session may have to be rearranged with a cancellation fee payable.
