We offer counselling across the lifespan from small children, youth to adult clients. All therapy is based around Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), ACT and other strength based therapies. The aim is to provide brief and strategic therapy that allows the client "move on" as quickly as possible.
Children’s therapy may also include drawing, sand tray and play therapy. Regular updates with parents (both face to face and via telephone) is also an important part of the therapy for young people. Sessions are 55 minutes. Fees as per the table (overleaf).
BETTER ACCESS VIA A GP MENTAL HEALTH PLAN
You can now access services at a cheaper rate if you are able to get a referral from a GP under the "Better Access Mental Health" program. A GP referral usually consists of 6 sessions, with a possible extra 4 (on review), which allows 10 sessions per calendar year. Common referrals are for Anxiety and Depression.
BETTER ACCESS VIA A GP MENTAL HEALTH PLAN TELEHEALTH OPTIONS
Telehealth sessions are now Medicare rebated via a Mental Health Plan. There are a few `rules' around this; 7/10 sessions can be provided via Telehealth options (video and audio link). Three sessions need to be face to face and one of these face to face has to occur in the first 4 sessions. Clients accessing this service need to be 15mins from a Psychologist and are rated above 4 on the Monash Thrive Counselling and Psychology aims to be the `one stop shop', so you can begin sessions with a Perth based/Esperance based counsellor and then access the Face to Face sessions as required. The Perth based location, just 10 mins from the Perth Domestic Airport will allow those clients travelling to Perth for Medical, Family and other reasons to `add on' a quick trip to their counsellor to continue with therapy.
EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS (EAP)
We provide EAP services for a large number of agencies/worksites in the Esperance region and via the Esperance site.
