All About Therapy
According to the American Psychological Association, “Psychologists help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives.” At Restoring Hope Counselling we aim to assist individuals and couples to thrive through improved psychological and relational health.
We believe that the best way to achieve this is through a cooperative and respectful working relationship, where each works hard to obtain the best results. We call this partnering for success. It is built on a foundation of honesty, openness, respect, trust and care.
As our psychologist brings his skills, knowledge of best practice, training and experience to the therapy session, so too the client brings their depth of life experience and deep knowledge of themselves. Together this partnership can provide leverage for success.
Telehealth (phone or video) consultations are now available.
Medicare and private health insurance rebates are available - as applicable.
In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. I’m confident you’ll find my personalized Private Counseling beneficial and inspirational. Get in touch to book an appointment.
Standard session rates are $160 for a standard consultation. Medicare rebates are available for individuals with a mental health care plan. Private health insurance may apply but you should check with your provider.
Keeping our intimate relationship healthy requires deliberate effort but often the important things in our daily life get in the way of our togetherness.
For some relationships betrayal and painful conflict lead patterns of criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling. Researchers (Gottman, 1999) now know that couples are more likely to separate when these behaviours become embedded in a relationship.
Couples therapy can help you identify and change these destructive patterns, work though painful betrayal, and establish new and fruitful ways of doing life together.
Many of the new skills you learn in counselling will assist you to become a more resilient and capable individual. Skills groups provide a wonderful environment to practice these new skills with the assistance of a trained therapist if needed.
At Restoring Hope Counselling we offer groups focusing on mindfulness, fostering close relationships, parenting and more. Check out our Upcoming Events for a group that interests you.
