As your counsellor, my mission is to help you figure out what you can do to live the life you desire. I will do this with a genuine belief in your own abilities, expertise, and strengths that will enable you to make the kind of choices that will serve you best and empower you to live a life where you strive and thrive.
Together in compassionate conversation we can make a difference to your life, one word at a time.
Gill Kenny, Writer & Counsellor
Personal counselling provides clients with a safe space to share personal challenges and find solutions using tried and tested therapeutic techniques.
Anxiety and Depression counselling uses CBT and other techniques to gently guide clients to find strengths that are innate within them to bolster them during times of worry and sadness.
Addiction Behaviour counselling calls on my own lived experience of addiction and subsequent recovery and training to help clients to free themselves of the things that hold them back in life. Using techniques such as Motivational Interviewing and Acceptance & Commitment therapy I help my clients to decide what changes they want to make and support them in setting goals to achieve these changes.
Counselling sessions range from 60 to 90 minutes in length, depending on personal preference.
Sessions cost $120 for 60 minutes or $170 for 90 minutes payable on the day of your session.
In Australia, counselling is currently not eligible for rebates through healthcare funds or Medicare. Fees are therefore kept to an affordable level which is comparable to the out-of-pocket expense incurred through seeing a mental health practitioner via the Medicare system.
All fees are in Australian dollars or equivalent.
