No. As a Private Counsellor we do not offer Medicare rebates, which is reflected in our lower fee structure. A referral from your GP is not required to attend Private Counselling but we can provide your GP with updates if you wish. Private Counselling is an important option if you do not want, or qualify for, a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). Private Counselling offers a broad range of evidence-based therapies ensuring a person-centered approach to healing and change within a supportive therapeutic relationship.

2 Business Days Notice is required to cancel or change your appointment.
Cancellation within 2 business days notice will incur a 100% cancellation fee. For Packages it will be charged as 1 appointment. Notice outside of 2 business days will result in a reschedule to an available appointment time.
Please reach out directly to Living In Bloom via mobile for all reschedules and cancellations.

All clients have a right to confidentiality and a safe and trusted space in therapy. Confidential information is all communication, appointments, discussions, notes, and client file notes regarding a client’s therapy. Living In Bloom including any of its Directors or employees, cannot share or disclose confidential information without your written consent. There are two exceptions to confidentially which counsellors are professionally bound by under Australian law and as outlined in the Australian Counselling Association Code of Ethics and Practice. If you or another person is at serious risk of imminent harm (suicide risk, harm to others, a major crime, child protection), and in very rare situations an Australian court of law can request information via a subpoena.
As a Registered Counsellor in Private Practice, you do not require a referral or a mental health plan to book an appointment with Living In Bloom. We happily accept referrals and will review mental healthcare plans if requested. We also work with other mental healthcare and medical practitioners as part of a client’s shared care.
Face-to-face appointments are held at Living In Bloom, located in a residential street in Pagewood, Sydney, NSW 2035. Street parking is freely available. The practice is within walking distance of Kingsford Juniors light rail station and numerous major bus stops.
Yes, clients can choose to participate in all or some of their appointments online. Online or Telehealth appointments are scheduled using ZOOM or Powerdiary telehealth. Telehealth appointment information is provided to clients in advance.
Initial (first) appointments run for 90 minutes. All subsequent appointments run for 60minutes and clients can choose to attend weekly or fortnightly. Client’s often start off weekly and move to fortnightly once therapy is flowing. The choice to begin and continue therapy lies completely with the individual. We will provide recommendations on how often and how long therapy should go for.
