The information about counselling and psychotherapy, together with the outlined areas of work, are a selection of ways in which I help support my clients. These specialties reflect particular interests. However, as a therapist, I integrate my passion and curiosity for understanding the human potential, with my extensive and varied personal and career experience. This allows me to draw on a broad tool kit of understandings and skills to support my clients in the best way I can. As such, there are many other areas that I will be pleased to discuss and support you with.
Feel free to connect with me whereby we can discuss your individual requirements in more detail and explore how we may be able to work together.
Types of Sessions
Face-to-Face - Sessions will take place in a safe space, where clients can engage in the therapeutic process in real time. Each session will be in St Kilda East, close to public transport (3 min walk from tram stop 39, or 5 min walk from Balaclava station)
Online Video (Skype, Zoom, FaceTime) - Sessions will occur through a suitable online platform, dependent upon the client's resources. This type of session can suit both Australian based and international clients.
Telephone - Sessions will occur over the telephone at a time decided between the client and myself.
No matter which area or type of counselling, I offer a free initial telephone consultation help us decide what will be best for you.
Length of Sessions and Rates
Your sessions are typically 75 minutes long, however we may find that 60 minute and 90 minute sessions are more suitable. Connect with me to enquire about what will suit you best.
Therapy rates are $150 per 75 minute session. Rates may be adjusted if a client is experiencing financial hardship. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss your particular requirements.
My approach is flexible; I offer a range of session times, including daytime and evening, by phone or online video when distance or time prevents us meeting in person.
A GP referral is not required and whilst some private health rebates may apply this is not always the case. We recommend you speak directly with your Health Insurer to clarify what cover you may be entitled to. The Medicare Better Access initiative is not available.
International Clients and Online Video Sessions
Skype, Zoom or FaceTime sessions are available for international clients and for the convenience of those who prefer sessions from home. I currently work with clients at convenient local times.
With gentle, expert guidance Amira helped me uncover my authentic voice...Amira's deep wisdom and infinite understanding of the human psyche guided me to uncover things with a depth I might never have done in regular therapy
I had seen therapists prior, but none had created such an open hearted space where my soul could be exposed and nurtured...[Amira] also gave me practical, physical and mental strategies which eased my anxiety and sleep issues
[I]n just 2 sessions you were able to open a whole new world for me and help me to see myself through a different perspective…I felt as though I had walked into a very sacred and safe place. I felt totally comfortable in opening up and sharing my deepest feelings and thoughts
