Face to Face or Telehealth Services

Most clients choose to come to the clinic and have face to face sessions.  However this is sometimes difficult due to family and work commitments, living in a regional/remote area, and/or limited access to transport and health reasons.  Telehealth counselling services by telephone or teleconferencing using Coviu, are also available.  Please contact Rachel to discuss options.
