Private Counselling Services - Services
Private Counselling Services is the creation of Principal Practitioner Janet McAuliffe. We offer online video counselling and welcome in person clientele to attend our consulting room in Frankston, Victoria.
Our online engagement provides you with the flexibility to choose a time and place that is most suitable to you. We service all areas of Australia where there is internet access, offering the option of after business hours and weekend services.
Janet welcomes the opportunity to discuss your needs and create a therapeutic experience that is personalised, discreet and confidential.
Attending personal counselling can be initiated during a crisis; to address ongoing maladaptive issues; to maintain mental health wellness; or to further develop growth, resilience and self-efficacy.
• A one off, 90 minute consult, can assist you to find your equilibrium and develop a plan during times of crisis, stress and anxiety. The session will establish your goals, explore the areas of stress or crisis, and support more reasoned emotional, behavioural and thought responses.
• A Package of six one hour consults (to be completed within 4 months) focuses on specific changes and assists with consolidation of newly acquired skills.
• Longer term counselling concentrates on therapeutic interventions, rather than short-term symptom relief. Sessions can begin with regular, weekly to fortnightly consults, then transition into more periodic sessions which provide a platform for maintaining your wellbeing. You may decide, for example, to transition to 4 – 6 week intervals between sessions and have a 90 minute consult instead of 60 minutes. Consults may cease for an agreed period of time, and you may decide to re-engage with Private Counselling Services as needed.
(Private Counselling Services does not advocate for unnecessary service, clients are welcome to discuss cessation at any time, however a plan to complete service is recommended).
Private Counselling Services offers a personalised service that you invest in and own. Consults can focus on professional sustainability or can be accessed as an alternative to employer funded Employment Assistance Programs.
