Couples and Marriage Psychologists

We use evidence-based and empirically supported approaches to support clients with relationship issues. We tailor our therapy sessions to effectively address client concerns. Our methodologies include Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT-C), Emotion-Focused Couple Therapy for Resolving Emotional Injuries (EFT-C-EI), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Approaches and more.

Some of the issues that we help couples with include: – Relationship repair following an emotional or physical affair – Helping couples resolve emotional injuries and let go of hurt, anger, and to forgive – Conflict and negative communication issues – Enhancing communication and deepening emotion connection – Pre-marital counselling – Difficulties in blended families – Problems with in-laws – Parenting stress

Adult / Individual Psychologists

All our psychologists work with adults on an individual basis. They each have expertise supporting clients with a range of issues including depression, anxiety and trauma. The team at the Centre for Emotion Focused Practice provide a safe, caring, compassionate, and understanding environment. We want you to feel welcome and comfortable to talk to us and get the help and support you need.

We understand that everyone is different and we know that it’s about listening to your concerns and working with you to help to reduce and remove any stress you may be experiencing. We all adhere to the principles of integrity, respect, authenticity and genuineness.

Service Fees

The following terms apply to fees at this practice:

Medicare card holders with a Mental Health Care Plan are entitled to a rebate of part of the fee for up to 10 sessions per calendar year.

The session fee is $190. The rebate is $86.15 for a registered psychologist, with a gap of $103.85.

The fee is the same for individuals, couples, children and adolescents services.

Our fees are significantly lower than the Australian Psychological Society’s recommended fee schedule. We believe that everyone should have access to quality mental health support.

Private Health Insurance

Session costs can also be offset against Private Health Extras Cover and rebates vary according to your level of cover. We work with all private health funds.

Rebates

We are predominantly a private practice, however, we keep a limited number of Bulk Bill sessions available between 10:00am and 3:00 pm for clients that need this and that have a Healthcare Card or are unemployed.

Clients with other medical conditions may be eligible for a further 5 sessions at the end of the 10 initial sessions under the Chronic Disease Management Scheme with Medicare.

Our fees are significantly lower than the Australian Psychological Society’s recommended fee schedule. We believe that everyone should have access to quality mental health support.
