How long does therapy take?
I assess everyone in the first session and will give a clear indication of how many visits may be necessary. The initial consultation and beginning of treatment starts with a two-hour session, after which there is always a follow-up session some time later. This, I believe, is a very efficient way of checking how the treatment is working.
Some clients will only need a very short treatment and other more difficult cases will naturally need sufficient time to help that person fully. My turnaround time is 1 to 6 sessions, a maximum of 12 sessions for deep seated problems, but normally we work so fast and effectively that the clients are seldom in therapy for long.
My goal is to make myself redundant as soon as possible. I assist the client to become their own self healer, helper and motivator. I am simply a mind mechanic who can suggest which button, lever and switch might be used to effect the change required.
What is the fee and payment structure?
Payment is required at the time of booking. For the initial appointment, you are required to pay for the very first two-hour session at the time of making the booking. At the end of that session on the day you also pay for the next session in advance which lasts one hour.
Payment is always due on the day. Each session, you pay for one hour in advance if it is a one-hour session or two hours if it is a two-hour couples session. On the last consultation, you will be one hour in credit so do not have to pay on that day.
Upon booking your appointment by telephone you will be given a standard hourly rate which will be applicable to everyone as well as the time of your appointment and directions on how to get to the consulting room.
If you need to change or cancel your appointment you will need to make those alterations at least 48 hours in advance. Changes or cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance will incur the charge of the full rate for that session.

Can I get a health fund rebate for any services?
Some private healthcare funds will allow you to claim for hypnotherapy, psychotherapy or counselling. It is up to you to telephone your provider to find out if they will cover you for some or all of your treatment.
Please see this list of Private Health Funds for details of which insurance companies offer rebates.
Am I assured of confidentiality?
All clients are assured of confidentiality about any disclosed material, in accordance with professional codes of ethics. I do not contact other practitioners or doctors who the client may also be under, without the client’s permission. I destroy inactive files after three years in order to assure clients total confidentiality.
How do you work?
I feel that it is important to tell you about the work of advanced models of excellence that I use. There are states of physical, mental and spiritual awareness that are over and above and transcend our normal waking consciousness.
States of physical ecstasy, mental brilliance and spiritual enlightenment can help us surpass our everyday expectations of life. These states are available to everyone through psychophysiological development, learnt from the East.
If there is anything you are unsure about, please telephone and ask. I am always happy to answer any enquiries.
Please see my About page for more information on the types of therapy I use.
