Diagnostic Assessments and Report:
Fees vary, if you require an assessment of this nature, I ask you to first make an initial 50 minute appointment to see me and we will discuss your requirements in this consultation.
Non Attended Session Fees:
I require 2 full working days (Monday-Friday only) notice should you need to cancel or re-schedule your appointment. You must do this by telephone.
– If you give us 2 or more business days’ notice: no fee
– Less than 2 business days: full consultation fee
Out of courtesy to our professional relationship, I request that you provide at least 7 days notice to cancel an appointment as I have limited appointments available.
Hello, my name is Alison
I work with with children, adolescents, adults and the aged population who are wanting to understand themselves better and to take a new step forward into a more satisfying life. Many of my client are experiencing a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, a life crisis, and other kinds of emotional difficulties.
I build warm therapeutic relationships with my clients and use CBT, schema, and mindfulness based strategies to empower and facilitate personal and professional change. I work with my clients to achieve their goals using psychodynamic and interpersonal strategies and focus on enabling them to take the pathway that they choose for increased wellbeing and happiness.
I see clients who have anxiety, depression, need support managing their stress, relationship issues, family difficulties, work place problems such as bullying, conflict with a colleague or boss, and work stress. Also parenting issues, living with someone with mental illness, trauma, grief and loss. But whatever your issue we will work together and find a path forward for you.
I have over 20 years of experience and have worked with communities on Manus Island and New Guinea. I love writing and have recently written a number of articles focusing on helping clients get through the COVID lockdowns.
