Frequently Asked Questions

Is counselling effective?

Talking matters through with a professional trained in psychology and has a full range of strategies and interventions allow you to explore, without judgement or persuasiveness. This is the privilege of talking to a skilled psychotherapist, psychologist or relationship therapist. There are also positive differences that people notice in your home and work life. Changes in your wellbeing and attitudes also reflect that counselling is being effective.

Are our counsellors registered and qualified? 

As the founder, I ensure that each therapist has current registration and accreditation as a skilled and practicing psychologist, mental health social worker, psychotherapist or couple and family therapist. Each of our practitioners has a Children’s Police check and is registered to accept Medicare rebates under the Mental Health Care Plan. We also participate in regular professional development and clinical supervision across the year.

Can we offer the most current treatment?

Our team consists of specialists with sound knowledge, education and skills across all issues and ranging from adults, couples, children and teenagers and families. I will directly respond and discuss your personal situation over the phone, Skype or email. Your practitioner will then discuss with you an overview of the counselling process, her rates and her flexibility around day, evening and Saturday appointments.

What about confidentiality and privacy?

Glen Eira Counselling respects your need for privacy and hence we are a boutique clinic, central to the bayside and inner south suburbs focusing entirely on psychotherapy and counselling.

Am I eligible for Medicare?
