Individual Therapy

Life throws us many challenges and it can feel like we are ill-equipped to overcome them. People are often asking themselves questions that seem to have no answer, or they might feel like their own brain is working against them. Individual therapy is a confidential, non-judgemental space to explore all these questions and more. It can be whatever you need it to be.


Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm: $220 ($126.65 after rebate) After hours & Saturdays: $250 ($156.65 after rebate) Cancellation/Reschedule (within 24 hrs) and No Show: Full Session Fee


Couples Therapy

In relationships, we can be asking ourselves a lot of questions. Often, we feel these questions might cause conflict or risk ruining our relationship, so we keep quiet. If this is you, couples therapy could hold some of the answers.

ADHD Assessments

It seems like ADHD is everywhere these days. It's been heartwarming to see the world slowly open itself up to neurodivergence and how a diagnosis of ADHD has changed peoples' lives. But navigating the diagnosis process has become a stress for many. Our assessments are designed to be cost-effective, timely, and most importantly validating.
