Services

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
  • Trauma
  • 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.

Fees

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. 

Financial Assistance:

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.

Cancellation policy:

If for any reason you are unable to make your scheduled appointment time please give me at least 24 hours notice of cancellation or payment of 50% of the session fee will be required. In the cases of recurrent cancellations, 100% of the session fee will be required.
