Appointments

No appointments available for new clients for the remainder of 2019. Next available sessions are from Saturday January 11, 2020.

Sessions are by appointment only, with appointments available Monday to Saturday and on Wednesday evening.


To arrange an appointment it is best to text or email Anne-Louise on 0488 832739 or [email protected]. Anne-Louise will contact you to discuss your appointment as soon as she is available to do so, which may be after a block of sessions, or the next day if she has consulted until late in the evening.


If you need to change or cancel your appointment please provide at least 48 hours notice, so that your appointment time can be offered to someone else who is waiting. If you do not provide this notice a cancellation fee may be charged to cover the time that Anne-Louise has set aside for you.


You do not need a referral to see a Psychologist, though you can discuss this with your GP, as you may be eligible for a referral under Medicare and therefore eligible for a rebate for your sessions. Referrals welcome from Workcover and Department of Veteran's Affairs.
