Our counsellors are fully qualified psychologists and social workers. They are chosen for their warmth, professionalism and experience working with anxiety and depression.
It can be a difficult decision to see a counsellor and we know that every person has unique needs. We will match you with the right counsellor who will work with you towards your recovery from anxiety and/or depression. Counselling is a collaborative relationship, where your experience, opinions and decisions are respected.
Reconnexion counselling for anxiety and depression is predominantly based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT helps you to make a connection between your thoughts and the feelings of anxiety. Learning to identify and counter negative or anxious thoughts improves mood and lifts anxiety. Research reliably shows that CBT has a high success rate for treating anxiety and depression.
Anxiety and depression counselling is available at East Malvern and Melton, with some out of hours appointments available. Call 1300 273 266 to discuss the service or to book an appointment.
Our experienced counsellors provide a safe place for you to work collaboratively towards your goals and support you to address obstacles which may be preventing you from enjoying a fulfilling life. Talk to your GP about obtaining a Mental Healthcare Plan (MHCP) so you can access bulk billed or subsidised counselling sessions.Make a booking enquiry
You will receive a Medicare rebate for counselling with a psychologist or social worker for up to 10 sessions per calendar year if you have a referral and a mental health care plan from your GP. Your gap fee will then be $55.50 per session – much less if you are over the Medicare safety net.
Some of our counsellors are able to bulk bill in which case there will be no gap fee. Ask about bulk billing when you call to make a booking.
