Value for Money is so subjective and extremely personal isn’t it?
What is considered a necessary expense to one person, may be considered a luxury to another. However, research clearly shows that money spent on ‘experiences’ lead to far more lasting benefits than money spent on ‘things’.
Basically, it all comes down to what you value…
And of course, getting real and positive benefit from the money you spend, 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 therapist to help you grow, to heal and to change?
Of course, there are many therapists out there, and finding the right one can be a challenge. 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 the industry is unregulated, unfortunately there are some who only have minimal training, or did their training a long time ago, there are even some who have no recognized training at all.
Your Investment with me includes my many years of professional training, including a university degree in psychology, together with all my current and ongoing professional development and experience helping clients, just like you, get the life that they really want to be living.
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.
I will love and accept you for who you are, 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…
My Fee Schedule is:
$85 Initial Consultation (45 minutes)
$195 Subsequent Consultations (90 minutes)
One of my points of difference is the length of my sessions, which are far longer than most other therapists. Therefore, 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 fee-for-service ~ This means that you pay me from your own pocket.
I do not provide Medicare or insurance rebates. However, 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 covered by insurance ~*you do not have a long waiting time to get an appointment with a provider who offers rebates, that is assuming 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 may read books and do research about topics raised in our sessions, or may get insight into your situation while I’m exercising or out on my morning walk. I may also provide you with a journal and pen, or books, or other printed material and/or other items, that I feel will be of benefit to you, and were purchased by me, and offered to you with my compliments during your therapeutic journey.
This level of attentiveness 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 ask for your credit card details to secure and hold your scheduled appointments. You will always be provided with an official tax receipt for my services.
If you need to cancel or re-schedule 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.
