One thing I would love you to know, "There is a place for you in this world, and despite all you may be experiencing, 'You Matter!" Are you carrying an emotional load that just seems too heavy to bare? Perhaps you are a mother who has devastatingly lost your child? Perhaps you have experienced trauma that constantly impedes on your life; feel so lost or anxious you are unable to move or breathe? Imagine there is a way forward to finding powerful release, purpose and your authentic, amazing self once again. Aah! Sounds so good?!

When you're overwhelmed, overworked and anxious, you are in survival mode. You're in too deep to think ahead. And it's way too hard to enact that self care plan. In fact, even thinking about it can feel exhausting. What you need is a way to create space and connect back into yourself.

Hi, I'm Sara, an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker with a special interest in trauma and PTSD. Trauma and PTSD can be complex with many layers. It impacts the body, brain, relationships sense of safety and trust in ourselves and the world around us. When we have experienced trauma or been exposed to traumatic events we tend to push the memories or images out of our mind, trying to get on with life as if nothing has happened. This takes a huge amount of energy to keep getting on with everyday life.

Have you ever tried to change and felt like your brain is fighting you every step of the way? Perhaps your brain has been caught in a loop of anxiety, trauma response, anger or flatlining in depression? Neuroscientists estimate that 90% of our decisions and behaviours are subconscious and that's why it's so hard to consciously change. The good news is that there is hope. The latest neuroscience shows ways to unhook our subconscious patterns from the past, behaviours and thoughts. Our brains weren't evolved to deal with the stressors of the modern world, but we can teach the brain the cues of safety to open up the path of healing.

There Is Nothing Wrong With You <3. We all have certain qualities that can be beneficial or they can get in the way. This all depends on the circumstance and how aware we are of which quality is behind the wheel in any given moment. Your Vigilance keeps you safe, but when it is always taking the driver’s seat your nervous system becomes taxed. Your people pleasing makes you feel valued and it’s good to care about the world around you. However, having clear boundaries makes for more authentic relationships and stops you from burning out. I’m not interested in trying to fix you, but I would love to support your path to self-awareness.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the Australian Counselling Association and the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia. Psychologists must be registered in the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Most Social Workers listed in the directory are members of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for social workers, psychotherapists and counsellors in Australia, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in Australia.

Psychologists have earned a 4 year undergraduate degree in psychology and have completed a postgraduate internship or postgraduate degree. Psychotherapists generally have an undergraduate degree in a health related field in addition to 3-4 years of specialist training in psychotherapy and a period of personal psychotherapy. In order to belong to a professional organisation such as the ACA or PACFA, counsellors and psychotherapists are required to have completed a certain level of AQF qualifications and/ or an approved training course as well as clinical and supervision hours. Social Workers registered with the AASW are required to have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Social Work from an accredited institution.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, the cost of a therapy session in Australia could be between $100 and $250. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The Better Access Scheme is a government program offering Medicare rebates for mental health care. To access the program you will need to be assessed and diagnosed by your GP and get a Mental Health Plan. This will allow you to receive up to 10 individual sessions and 10 group sessions a year with practitioners who accept bulk billing, with no out of pocket costs for you.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the ACA, PACFA, or the APS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client or others or when a minor is in danger, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
