How can I contact Carolyn?
Carolyn is conactable via her email here.
How long does an appointment take?
Appointments are usually 50-60min in length.
However shorter 30-40min appointments are sometimes planned for mindfulness skill development and Health & Lifestyle Coaching.
What happens at the first appointment?
You will be asked to arrive approximately 15 minutes before your first appointment to complete some paperwork or this may be emailed to you prior to the appointment.
Through this session we explore your expectations of what you would like to achieve and work on understanding the issues that have brought you to see Carolyn. We also begin constructing a plan of how these issues or needs can be addressed. All first appointments will be 50-60min in length.
How much does each session cost?
Carolyn believes in making Psychology services accessible. As such the standard cost of a session is well below the rates recommended by the Australian Psychological Society (APS). If you are eligible for a Medicare Mental Health Care Plan, a referral from your GP will allow for access to a rebate from Medicare. Private Health Fund rebates are applicable as per each fund’s rules. Before you first session we will talk about costs and the payment methods available.
Where is Carolyn located?
Currently during the COVID-19 period appointments are being mostly offered via a telehealth (video conferencing) and by telephone. The telehealth conferencing platform will work on most devices (i.e smart phone, tablet or laptop) and is easy to use and does not require you to download any programs.
When we move out of the COVID-19 period a venue for face to face appointments will be confirmed but will likely be in the Tarragindi area of Brisbane.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact Carolyn.
