Individual Counselling

Counselling focuses on enhancing people's capacity to cope with specific life challenges such as relationship ending, bereavement, and anxiety. Counselling helps resolve crises, reduce distress, develop goals for change and improve wellbeing. Counselling also assists with problem solving and developing inner resources to move on with life in meaningful ways.

Fee: Individual Counselling Session (1 hour):  $90.00 Individual Counselling Session. Skype and Telephone counselling available.

Individual Psychotherapy 

Psychotherapy focuses on achieving change in the personality or self. Often people notice that the nature of their personal difficulties are repetitive. Similar issues arise time and time again in different contexts and relationships. Psychotherapy helps people achieve better self-understanding and change long-standing patterns of behaviour that may be disrupting relationships, work or study. 

Fee: Individual Psychotherapy Session (1Hour):  $90.00. Skype and Telephone Counselling available.

Couples/Marriage/Relationship Counselling and Psychotherapy

Couples Psychotherapy & Counselling - How I work.

As with individual therapy sessions, I draw on a range of theories and approaches in order to address the individual needs of the couple. These sessions may require 2 hour sessions at times but will replace the need to attend therapy every week for an extended amount of time.

Fee: Couples Psychotherapy & Counselling Session $100 (60 minute session), $145 (90 minute session), $195 (2 hour session).  

1 Day Couple Workshops, 6 week couple courses coming soon. Check out the News section for details.

"I was so nervous about going to counselling but I found Merie's calm and gentle presence to be a welcome relief. I didn't know where to begin but the way she does therapy helps things flow easily. Thank you Merie for helping me through a difficult time."

- (Sarah, 32 Years old, Carindale).

"I first went to see Merie to help my kids. After all it's reasonable for kids to need a bit of help along the way-but not a successful father, husband and businessman. I'm so glad I did- I've learnt it's not just about getting help in weakness (although it can be) but with a shift in thinking it's surprising how much stronger we can be. Thanks Merie for challenging me to be a man of real integrity, for helping me charter a course towards real peace and developing stronger relationships with my loved ones"

- (Male client, Sunnybank).

"We learnt a lot about ourselves and the patterns we'd gotten ourselves into over 14 years of marriage. We've learnt how to resolve our conflicts in a new way and we feel like we're falling in love all over again."

- (Couple, Shailer Park).

"I highly recommend Merie for her professionalism, warmth and caring attitude. She can be both serious and light-hearted which helped put me at ease"

- (Kate, 42, Coorparoo).
