What Happens In Counselling?

You book an appointment then come at your appointment time, at my rooms in Griffith ACT, or online. Whether you're on your own, or with a partner or family member, we sit down together and you have opportunity to discuss anything you would like to explore. I will listen to you, ask some questions, and walk with you through the difficulty you are experiencing. Occasionally I may use some creative exercises, games or meditations as a way to help you tap into your thoughts and feelings.

Why Hot Cocoa?

A mug of hot cocoa is always warm and inviting.

It's a great symbol of comfort, mindfulness and personal reflection... which is what counselling is all about.

At Hot Cocoa Counselling, you'll have a chance to explore some of the tough issues. It's not always easy to face those things that have been holding you back. But in the end, you'll find comfort through that experience, and wholeness and healing.

Do we serve hot cocoa as part of our service, I hear you ask?

Why, yes we do!

Or you can have another warm drink if you prefer.

Water is always available to you too.

Q: How long will I have to go to counselling?

A: That depends - everyone is different. You may just need some short-term emotional support over a few weeks, or you may have deeper issues that need long term work over months or years.

Q: Do you have bulk billing or fee subsidies?

A: No, there are no bulk-billing or subsidies available. However, our prices are very affordable compared to a psychologist. You still receive high quality, empathic counselling from a trained counsellor.

Q: How do I cancel or change my appointment?

A: Check your confirmation email. You can click through there and make changes.
