I provide assessment & treatment of a broad range of difficulties including:
- Anxiety (excessive worry, OCD, social anxiety, phobias, panic etc)
- Low mood & depression
- Eating issues/disorders
- Grief and adjustment
- Relationship issues
- Family dynamics
- Managing emotions
- Self-esteem issues
Unfortunately, due to needing to juggle my employment within the public sector I only have capacity to see a small number of private clients. At this stage my appointments are limited to Wednesdays and Thursdays (school hours).
Due to my limited availability I am not currently taking on clients with significant risk concerns or personality disorders.
Clinical Assessment (80 mins) $260 – required for most individuals & includes thorough assessment, diagnosis (if wanted) and formulation of a treatment plan
Individual Therapy Sessions (50 mins) $180
Family Therapy Sessions (50 mins) $180
Couples Therapy (50 mins) $180
Please note couples seeing me for couples therapy will be asked to complete the comprehensive Gottman Relationship Checkup Assessment – which costs $29 USD per couple.
Some insurance policies provide subsidies for Clinical Psychology services. Please check with your insurance company prior to engagement with me if you are reliant on their funding. You may require a referral from your GP in this instance.
I am an approved I Am Hope therapist, which provides payment of up to 5 therapy sessions for those 25 years and under from the well-known Gumboot Friday appeal. Accessing the funding is anonymous & simple, although ongoing funding is not guaranteed (and likely to run out in November 2019) – so have a chat to me about how it works if session fees are out of your reach. NOTE: update 12th September 2019 – I Am Hope have paused accepting any new clients under 19.
Some clients may meet criteria for partial funding for therapy via WINZ: https://www.workandincome.govt.nz/products/a-z-benefits/disability-allowance.html
ACC provides funding for therapy related to sexual trauma that occurred in New Zealand through the Integrated Services for Sensitive Claims pathway: https://findsupport.co.nz/about-acc/about-the-sensitive-claims-unit-2/
Sensitive Claims Assessments
I am currently available for Integrated Services for Sensitive Claims assessments funded by ACC. Please get in touch via e-mail to discuss my availability.
