Counselling

Josie sees individuals and couples who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, or addiction problems. Sometimes people feel distressed or uneasy about how things are going in their lives and just want to talk things through with someone outside their immediate circle and explore possible ways forward.

Please note that Josie is an accredited Mental Health Practitioner under the Medicare "Better Access to Mental Health Scheme". This means you can receive a partial medicare rebate for ten services per year, if you are referred to Josie by your GP.

Please be aware that Josie often has a waiting list of three to six weeks.
