Kate’s services

In-person counselling

Sessions usually last 50 minutes and the time between sessions is decided after completion of the initial session. In the first session, Kate typically gathers information about what brings you to therapy, your concerns, what’s been going on in your life and any symptoms and significant experience.

Phone & video counselling

Phone and video counselling, also known as telehealth or online counselling, is effective, confidential and convenient if you live in a rural or remote area, or it doesn’t suit you to visit a clinic in person. Sessions usually last 50 minutes and all you need is a computer, internet connection and a private room.
