TRAUMA

Trauma impacts people differently. There are many variables at play including the type of trauma experienced as well as the age at which it occurred. Traumatic events can be single incidents or repeated exposure to multiple events. Some examples are:

  • Emotional & psychological abuse and neglect

  • Physical abuse

  • Sexual abuse

  • Exposure to War & Conflict

  • Attachment trauma

  • Assault

  • Domestic Violence

  • Growing up in a family with addiction

  • Verbal Abuse

  • Narcissistic Abuse

  • Bullying

  • Abandonment

  • Excessively controlling upbringing

These in turn may develop into

symptoms consistent with:

  • Acute Stress Disorder

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 

  • Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD)

  • Developmental Trauma

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

There are a few different avenues to working with me:

  • Private Referral - you wish to pay the full fee without the hurdle of going through your GP for a referral. 

  • Medicare - if you wish to go through Medicare, a rebate is available. You will need a referral letter and a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP.  As of 06/04/2020 you are also eligible to receive the rebate for Telehealth services in response to Covid-19. 

  • Victims Services - I am an Approved Psychologist with the NSW Department of Communities & Justice Victims Services Program. If you have been physically or emotionally injured by a violent crime or you have witnessed a violent crime you are eligible to apply for counselling through NSW Victims Services. The act of violence does not have to be reported to the Police for you to receive counselling and there is not time limit, it can be related to past events. If approved, the cost is covered by Victims Services and you will be eligible for up to 22 hours of counselling.
