I provide some clients with an intensive format of therapy delivery. There are clear guidelines for whom this is appropriate and for whom it is not. I will do an assessment with you to see if this is the most supportive way for you to do somatic therapy with me. 



The intensive therapy format differs from traditional 50 minute or 75 minutes weekly sessions in several very important ways. For some clients, 50 minute sessions can feel too brief.



Intensive Therapy provides more frequent concentrated doses of therapy by combining several techniques including Somatic Experiencing, Touch work, Brainspotting and Cranio Sacral. In fact, many clients engaged in Intensive Therapy report rapid achievement of counselling goals with significant and lasting symptom reduction. 



Clients who may benefit from Intensive Therapy include:

  • Those lacking access to a trained Somatic Experiencing Practitioner with advanced training in Touch Therapy (Kathy 

    Kain model). 


  • Those lacking access to a trained Attachment Therapist who specialises in attachment ruptures including Reactive 

    Attachment Disorder. 


  • Those who prefer to work and learn skills more rapidly than on a weekly basis. 


  • Those who lack sufficient time to work in a traditional format. 

    Intensive Therapy schedules are usually over weekdays and are typically 6 sessions in three days.

    While Intensive Therapy isn't appropriate in every case, I can help you determine if it's right for you and/or your family. If you are interested in knowing more, please contact me. 


How it works:



1. Schedule appointment and have telephone interview.

2. Basic plan for weekday intensive are 2 sessions per day or customise your session hours.

6 x 75minutes sessions - $840.00

Sessions can be divided into family and or individual or couple, depending on need for intensive. I can usually arrange hours that work for you on a more customised schedule.
Some clients chose to come for Intensive every 3 to 4 months for follow ups if necessary.

There are 2 venues available for Intensive Therapy

Sydney Monday to Wednesday

Closest station : St.Leonards

Terrigal Thursday to Saturday

Closest station : Gosford is approximately 20 minutes drive from my office.

Terrigal isn't a good city for public transportation, so most, choose to drive own car or rent a car.

Closest Hotel is Crown Plaza Terrigal and within walking distance to my offices: Some clients also choose airbnb.com and vrbo.com and rent a house or apartment. I will be happy to assist you in locating appropriate accommodations.

For those clients who are having this delivery I must receive all fees prior to the commencement of our

first intensive session.

If you cancel within 2 weeks of our first session, there will be a 50% cancellation fee.

Please let me know if you would like further information about this option of therapy delivery.

SKYPE OPTION

In some circumstances I will provide therapy via Skype but I would need to do a thorough assessment with you before we decide if this is your best option.
