Counselling and Clinical Psychologist


What can I expect when I make contact?

When you first contact Anthony, he will answer your questions and ask you briefly about what has led to your enquiry. If you are happy to proceed, then Anthony will make an appointment with you, explain the fee arrangements, give location directions, and answer any further questions you may have. He may also ask for some of your contact details so he can get in touch with you if needed.

What can I expect from the first session?

The first session is an opportunity for you to meet Anthony and to tell him in greater detail about what has brought you to therapy. He is likely to ask you further questions to help you and him to get a clearer sense of what you are experiencing. Toward the end of the session, you and Anthony will discuss some of your hopes and expectations for therapy, and develop an initial plan for the therapy.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions for therapy depends on the nature of your difficulties and the approach you and Anthony agree upon. Some issues can be resolved in a session or two, but usually therapy involves a greater number of sessions. In these cases, over the first three sessions, you and Anthony will develop a greater sense of your difficulties and begin working toward resolving them. At the end of the third session, you and Anthony will develop a plan for future sessions in light of your work together thus far and goals for therapy. This may involve a set number of sessions within a specific time-frame, or be open-ended. In any case, the frequency and number of sessions are always open to review.

How long does each session last?

Each session is 50 minutes in duration.

What are psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and systemic family therapy?

Please see the the Approach page for an explanation.

Am I entitled to rebates for my sessions?

Please see the Fees and Rebates page for details.
