As discussed over the phone, our clinics provide comprehensive DBT programs that are closely aligned with evidence-based research and Australian Health Care standards.
We offer individual therapy which is a vital component of DBT through Telehealth as well as at our Gold Coast Clinic in Southport QLD, Melbourne Clinic in Brighton VIC, and our Sydney Clinic in Mona Vale NSW. Individual therapy sessions are charged at $210 per session with a Psychologist, Social Worker, or Counsellor. As the DBT model recommends, our individual therapy sessions are held weekly alongside our weekly group programs.
Before commencing a DBT group, individuals are expected to have completed a minimum of two individual therapy sessions. During the initial session, one of our clinicians will go through a preferred coping style assessment which will help inform our team which DBT approach is likely to be most beneficial to your individual needs.
We offer DBT Groups through Telehealth as well as at our Gold Coast Clinic in Southport QLD, Melbourne Clinic in Brighton VIC, and our Sydney Clinic in Mona Vale NSW. Group sessions last 90 minutes online and/or through our hybrid programs. A hybrid group is a program that can be attended online or in person.
We have a number of payment options through our clinics which are fee-for-service-based clinics which are well below the recommended fee of $300 by the Australian Psychological Society.
You may also be eligible for the following rebates when paying for your individual therapy and groups at our clinics:
Should you seek additional information please arrange an initial session with one of our therapists who will discuss our approach and DBT in more depth.
